Press Statement by Director-General of Department of U.S. Affairs of Foreign Ministry of DPRK

Pyongyang, June 13 (KCNA) -- Kwon Jong Gun, director-general of the Department of U.S. Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, released the following statement on Saturday:

On June 12, an official in the south Korean "foreign affairs authority" made presumptuous remarks that they will make extended endeavor for an earlier resumption of the DPRK-U.S. dialogue and that the efforts should continue for a complete denuclearization and an establishment of a permanent peace mechanism on the Korean peninsula.

It is really preposterous to hear the balderdash of south Korean authorities-who do not have either any qualification to discuss, or the position to poke their noses into, the matters between the DPRK and the U.S., to say nothing of nuclear issues - are commenting on the resumption of DPRK-U.S. dialogue and interpreting the issue of denuclearization at their own choice.

Having been long forsaken like a good-for-nothing cucumber stalk thrown into swill, they should have now been aware too well of their sad lot, but it is really pitiful that they are still irrationally mouthing denuclearization, like a monk chanting the prayers.

I still remember that exactly one year ago, we advised them to stop fooling around in such a nasty manner and immediately drop out of the issue of the DPRK-U.S. relations. This notwithstanding, the people down the village in the south are still trying to seek an excuse to meddle in. How pathetic and miserable they are!

For your own information, it is not because there is not a mediator that the DPRK-U.S. dialogue has gone away and the denuclearization been blown off.

If I, though against my will, simply copy the catchphrase used by the village in the south, it is because "conditions are not met" for denuclearization.

While just looking at their demeanor of repeating denuclearization like a parrot, I cannot repress my judgment of how dull they really are because it comes to me as if the preemies - who do not have a basic idea about what conditions are needed and how many mountains should be climbed over in order to realize the denuclearization - are burping after drinking a still water.

When the things come to this point, they have to know their own place even though they are so much eager to be reckoned with.

I want to make it clear that we will continue to build up our force in order to overpower the persistent threats from the United States, and such efforts of ours are in fact continuing at this point of time.

If they want to deal with us, they will have to approach us after racking their brains and founding a different method.

We are not what we were two years ago. The change continues and will continue as ever in a tremendous way.

It is better to stop a nonsensical talking about denuclearization. -0-
