Kim Yo Jong, Deputy Department Director of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, gave a statement to media on the 25th.

The statement reads.

Yesterday and today, I have carefully watched the movement of the south Korean political authority after releasing press statements reflecting our clear opinion and natural demand.

I've got an impression that the atmosphere of the south Korean public of different circles to restore the blocked inter-Korean relations as early as possible and achieve peaceful stability is irresistibly strong.

We also want it.

I think there is no need for the north and the south to waste time, finding fault and arguing with each other.

If south Korea truly wants the restoration of the inter-Korean relations and the sound development, it should say a word after due consideration and make a correct choice.

For example, south Korea should not recklessly criticize us with such rough remark as "provocation" and lead wordy warfare between the north and the south.

I say clearly once again that we can never tolerate the double standard.

Our actions conducted on the level of right of self-defence to cope with the present military environment and possible military threats in the region of the Korean peninsula are all abused as a threatening "provocation" and their activities for arms buildup are embellished as "securing of deterrent against the north". Such double standard of the US and south Korean style against the DPRK is an illogical and childish assertion and an undisguised neglect of and challenge to the sovereignty of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

South Korea should not try to destroy the balance of the military force in the region of the Korean peninsula with such illogical and childish farfetched assertion copycatting the United States.

I only hope that the south Korean authorities would prove in practice their movement to remove all the sparks like the double standard bereft of impartiality, hostile policy toward the DPRK, all sorts of prejudices and hostile speeches breaking confidence.

I think that only when impartiality and the attitude of respecting each other are kept, there will be smooth understanding between the north and the south and furthermore, the significant termination of war will be declared without losing a moment and a number of issues on the improvement of relations such as the setting up of the inter-Korean joint liaison office again and the inter-Korean summit meeting can be settled significantly and wonderfully one by one through constructive discussion at an early date.

But I make clear this is my own view to all intents and purposes.

I have already advised in August last that south Korea should make a correct choice.

I don't want to conclude now whether there will be a light, balmy breeze or a storm in the future.
