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

Date: 02/05/2021 | Source: Ministry of Foreign Affairs (EN) | Read original version at source

Kwon Jong Gun, director general of the Department of U.S. Affairs of the Foreign Ministry of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), released the following statement on May 2.

The U.S. chief executive in his first Congressional speech after his inauguration made a slip of tongue about the DPRK again.

That he cited diplomacy and resolute deterrence, calling the DPRK a “serious threat” to the security of the U.S. and the world, was what had already been anticipated as it is a usual story from Americans.

But intolerable is that the U.S. chief executive clarified his DPRK stand this way in his first policy speech.

His statement clearly reflects his intent to keep enforcing the hostile policy toward the DPRK as it had been done by the U.S. for over half a century.

Even American experts comment lots of information about the direction and focus of his DPRK policy review can be obtained from the just one sentence.

It is illogical and an encroachment upon the DPRK’s right to self-defense for the U.S., that had threatened the DPRK through unprecedented vicious hostile policy and constant nuclear blackmail, to call the DPRK’s deterrence for self-defence a “threat”.

The U.S.-claimed “diplomacy” is a spurious signboard for covering up its hostile acts, and “deterrence” touted by it is just a means for posing nuclear threats to the DPRK.

The anti-DPRK nuclear war exercises held by the U.S. soon after the inauguration of the new administration proved in action who really threatens whom on the Korean peninsula and clearly showed that one must build a powerful deterrence to counter the U.S.

The U.S. will face worse and worse crisis beyond control in the near future if it is set to approach the DPRK-U.S. ties, still holding on the outdated policy from Cold War-minded perspective and viewpoint.

It is certain that the U.S. chief executive made a big blunder in the light of the present-day viewpoint.

Now that what the keynote of the U.S. new DPRK policy has become clear, we will be compelled to press for corresponding measures, and with time the U.S. will find itself in a very grave situation.
