KAPPC Spokesman Urges U.S. to Pay Heed to DPRK's Warning
Pyongyang, August 2 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee (KAPPC) Wednesday issued a statement over the fact that the U.S. is still going reckless, instead of properly judging the stark reality, the DPRK's successful test-launch of ICBM Hwasong-14, and making a responsible option.
The U.S. high-ranking authorities are letting out such flurry of reckless vituperation as "military option", "preparation for secret operation" and "regime change".
Reminding the U.S. of the warning made by the peerlessly great man who rocked the planet on behalf of the Korean army and people that love peace, the statement says:
Our Supreme Leader said that for the Korean people who experienced disastrous war on this land due to the U.S. imperialist brutes, the powerful war deterrence for defending the state is an inevitable strategic option and it is a precious strategic asset that can not be bartered for anything.
The Trump administration should be mindful that his famous words are a declaration of the Korean army and people's firm faith and unbreakable will to keep to the road of bolstering up the nuclear force for self-defense under the banner of the line of simultaneously developing the two fronts.
And it should seriously accept the declaration by our supreme leadership that the U.S. trumpeting about war and extreme sanctions and threat against the DPRK only emboldens the latter and offers a better excuse for its access to nukes, and should clearly understand that the wild scheme for "the north's nuclear dismantlement" is nothing but a pipedream.
The peerlessly great man declared that if the U.S. brandishes nuclear stick against this land again despite our repeated warnings, we would severely teach it how to properly behave with the nuclear strategic force which we had shown one by one. This declaration is a grave warning of Songun Korea to the U.S.
Now, there will be no other option but two ways for the U.S.: One is to have the security of its whole territory including the mainland guaranteed by recognizing the strategic position of the DPRK as a Juche nuclear power and the world's military power and making a switchover in its hostile policy towards the DPRK. The other is to stand up against the DPRK to the last, which will lead to the miserable end of the American empire due to the unprecedented nuclear disaster.
The U.S. had better cool down its head heated with the hostility towards the DPRK and war hysteria and pay heed to the meaningful warning of the DPRK. -0-
U.S. Blamed for Pressing S. Korea into Renegotiations over FTA
Pyongyang, July 21 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the National Economic Cooperation in a statement Friday denounced the U.S. for pressurizing south Korea into renegotiations over "Free Trade Agreement".
Recently Trump let the U.S. trade mission unilaterally notify the south Korean authorities that it would get into the procedures for the re-negotiations over FTA and, accordingly, south Korea was forced into sitting before the humiliating negotiating table.
The recent unilateral notification concerning the FTA renegotiations by Trump clearly proves the impudent nature of the U.S. indifferent to the destiny of a colonial stooge for its own interests, the statement said, and went on:
By nature, the south Korea-U.S. FTA was signed as traitor Lee Myung Bak yielded to the U.S. pressure, and it is an unequal and traitorous "agreement" nothing helpful to the people's livelihood.
By this shackling "agreement" south Korea's agricultural and livestock products, fisheries market and services field were fully opened and the previous system that restricted foreign investment in the major industrial field was eased, flinging the door open to the U.S. monopoly capitalists.
All facts prove that the U.S. is a shameless dominator and predator indifferent to the south Korean economy and the livelihood of its people in order to serve its selfish purposes.
South Korea is obliged to offer not only its liver and gallbladder but also heart to the master keen on sucking all juice from the south Korean people with a firm hold on the lifeline of south Korea. This is the due outcome of the successive puppet rulers' sycophancy toward the U.S.
No matter how desperately the south Korean authorities may justify "south Korea-U.S. alliance", they can never cover up their deplorable fate no more than the puppet of the U.S.
The south Korean authorities allegedly speaking for the candlelight demonstrators should come to their senses and part with the policy of submission to the U.S. and sycophancy toward it, not moving at its beck and call. -0-
GFTUK Supports S. Korean Workers' Just Struggle
Pyongyang, July 7 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the General Federation of Trade Unions of Korea released a statement on Thursday as regards the general strike getting stronger recently among south Korean workers urging the regime to ensure the right to labor and eliminate conservative evils.
The struggle, launched late in June, has spilled over into the strikes of workers in various sectors, the statement said, and went on:
On June 30, more than 60 000 workers affiliated to the south Korean Confederation of Trade Unions gathered in Seoul and held a rally for launching a general strike. People from all walks of life including teachers demanding the legitimization of the teachers union, youth and students and peasants are proactively joining the struggle.
They are expressing their fixed will to carry on their struggle until the part-time jobs are replaced with full-time jobs, minimum wages are hiked and the unpopular labor policy is retracted, strongly urging the regime to do so.
The on-going general strike of south Korean workers is a just struggle to bring about a new world of workers by eliminating all evils left by the Park Geun Hye regime of traitors which mercilessly trampled down the elementary right to labor and right to existence of workers by persisting in misrule during its tenure.
The Central Committee of the General Federation of Trade Unions of Korea extends full support and strong solidarity to the south Korean workers in their all-out struggle for getting rid of all evils against people and gaining their basic rights to labor and existence.
The south Korean public resolutely punished the conservative group of traitors but such evils as inveterate sycophancy toward the U.S., idea of confrontation with the compatriots in the north and fascist dictatorship are still harassing the development of the south Korean society.
The situation clearly shows that guarantee of the right to labor doesn't come by itself despite the regime change in south Korea but the genuine rights to existence of its workers can be ensured only when independence and democracy are realized throughout its society.
To completely liquidate the unpopular evils of the former conservative regime is the unanimous demand of the candlelight demonstrators in south Korea and the workers should do their bit by steering the advance of the era and history. -0-
KAHRS Spokesman Hits Anti-DPRK Human Rights Campaign
Pyongyang, June 30 (KCNA) -- A spokesman of the Korean Association for Human Rights Studies gave the following answer raised by KCNA on June 30 as regards the reckless remarks with ulterior political purposes made by the "International Coalition to Stop Crimes against Humanity in North Korea" severely distorting the reality of the DPRK:
Recently a member of the "International Coalition to Stop Crimes against Humanity in North Korea", an anti-DPRK plot-breeding organization, prattled that majority of equipment used in the Masikryong Ski Resort was purchased in violation of the UN sanctions, "child slavery labor" was used in the operation of the Ski Resort and that 30 young people died in a bus accident on their way to the resort. This is a complete fabrication.
Such groundless lies, made unhesitatingly towards the International Olympic Committee and the international community at large, are an unpardonably despicable act.
If the ski equipment used by our people of all walks of life in the Masikryong Ski Resort which is popular as in many other countries was introduced in the DPRK in violation of the UN sanctions, those sanctions themselves constitute extra-large crimes against humanity which obstruct physical advancement and civilized life of the popular masses. -0-
Dynamic Struggle for Ending GIs' Presence in S. Korea Urged
Pyongyang, June 12 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the North-side Headquarters of the Nationwide Special Committee for Probing the Truth behind the GIs' Crimes released a statement on Monday over the lapse of 15 years since U.S. imperialists brutally killed two girl students of south Korea.
The statement said: An armored vehicle of the U.S. imperialist aggression forces in south Korea ran over and mercilessly killed the two girls Sin Hyo Sun and Sim Mi Son on a road of Kwangjok-myon of Yangju City in Kyonggi Province in broad daylight on June 13, 2002.
This murder case was neither an accidental incident nor a crime of individual GI but an inevitable product of the U.S. imperialists' military presence in south Korea.
The seven decades-long history of the U.S. military presence in south Korea is characterized by the most hideous aggression, plunder and murder GIs perpetrated to trample down the south Korea's aspiration and desire for independence and impose unbearable destiny of colonial slaves upon them.
Not content with bringing unheard-of disgrace, humiliation, disaster and pain upon the south Korean people, the gangster-like U.S. imperialist aggressors are running amuck to impose a terrible nuclear holocaust upon the Korean nation while frantically staging a risky war racket against the DPRK.
All facts go to clearly prove that the U.S. is neither a "nation friendly" to the south Korean people nor their "guardian" but a root cause of all misfortune and pain of the Korean nation.
The south Korean people should stage a high-pitched struggle for independence against the U.S. in order to drive the U.S. imperialist aggressors, the sworn enemy of the Korean nation, out of south Korea and regain their dignity and sovereignty.
To put an end to the U.S. domination and control, they should resolutely foil the treacherous moves of the pro-U.S. forces seeking to maintain power with the backing of the U.S.
All Koreans in the north, the south and abroad will surely bring earlier the day of independent reunification when they will be free from outsiders' interference by staging a brisk nationwide struggle to put an end to the U.S. imperialist aggression forces' presence in south Korea, the root cause of all misfortune and trouble. -0-
DPRK Foreign Ministry Spokesman Refutes G-7 Summit Joint Statement
Pyongyang, May 30 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA Tuesday over the fact that the U.S. and the hostile forces made public a joint statement faulting the DPRK at the G-7 summit:
At the summit held in Sicily of Italy on May 26-27, the U.S. and its followers made public a joint statement slandering the DPRK.
It is those seven nations which carried out most of the nuclear and missile tests that have been and who render regional situation extremely tense through competitive sales of war means like attack missiles to south Korea.
Yet, they are urging the DPRK to scrap its nuclear deterrence meant for self-defence of the country. This is like a guilty party filing the suit first.
The G-7 summit is a place where those nuclear- and missile-haves put their heads together to discuss how to pressure weak countries and those incurring their displeasure.
The U.S. and its followers are seriously mistaken if they think they can deprive the DPRK of its nuclear deterrence, the nation's life and dignity, through sanctions and pressure.
The increased sanctions and pressure will compel the DPRK to further step up its moves for diversifying and modernizing its nuclear force. -0-
U.S. Is to Blame for Consequences of Anti-DPRK Sanctions: Chief of Law Institute
Pyongyang, May 15 (KCNA) -- The chief of the Law Institute of the DPRK Institute of International Studies released a statement on Monday over the fact that the Trump administration of the U.S. seeks to slap new sanctions on the DPRK, pursuant to its policy called "maximum pressure and engagement".
On May 4, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a new anti-DPRK Sanctions Act, the keynote of which is to ratchet up sanctions on the DPRK to the maximum and impose sanctions on the foreign businesses, organizations and individuals that have business deals with it and employ its workers.
Meanwhile, the U.S. is seeking unprecedented sanctions, pressure and diplomatic blockade against the DPRK by pressurizing and blackmailing other countries and their businesses and individuals not to have normal diplomatic and economic and trade relations with the DPRK under the "sanctions resolution" of the UN Security Council.
The statement denounces this as an unethical crime violating all the principles of international law including the UN Charter as it seeks the most vicious aim of deteriorating the economy of the DPRK and the people's living under the pretext of "nuclear non-proliferation".
Such sanctions have not just begun today. It is a wanton violation of international law and an impudent mockery of the international community that the U.S. is persisting in the moves to justify sanctions against a sovereign state by its domestic law.
What is more serious is that the U.S. seeks to realize its world hegemonic ambition under the pretext of such sanctions, the statement points out, adding:
Those countries under naval threats and pressure from the U.S. to break ties with the DPRK and stop their economic and trade activities with it are largely at strategic rivalry with the U.S. or located at vantage points of geopolitical importance. Most of them have already been exposed to various forms of sanctions by the U.S.
The facts go to prove that the Trump administration is seeking to kill three birds with one stone: The U.S. scheme is to stifle the DPRK, a stumbling block in implementing its strategy for world hegemony, by citing the DPRK's exercise of independent rights as "threat" and "provocation" to global peace and security and to tame the countries disobedient to it and put the strategic bases under its control.
After all, the passage of the illegal Anti-DPRK Sanctions Act shows that such elementary principles and institutional mechanisms on international relations as respect for sovereignty, non-interference and peaceful settlement of a dispute have almost disappeared.
The present situation evidently proves that the U.S. has already gone beyond the pale in arrogance and shamelessness to gratify its hegemonic ambition and that it is impossible to expect any peace and stability in the earth when such rude action is allowed.
To remain vigilant against the U.S. sanctions and pressure on the DPRK and struggle against them is the way for defending the sovereignty of each country and ensuring global peace and security.
The U.S. should not test the DPRK's perseverance any longer.
Explicitly speaking, the DPRK's nuclear deterrence for self-defence and preemptive strike capability are aimed at the U.S. trying to antagonize, isolate and stifle it. Accordingly, they can never be any political or economic bargaining chip and they will never be abandoned though the U.S. ratchets up the sanctions and pressure to the utmost.
If the Trump administration truly wants to adopt a new policy towards the DPRK, drawing a lesson from the preceding administration's failure, it should go for change of the Armistice Agreement between the DPRK and U.S. into a peace accord and total removal of the hostile relations so as to help ensure lasting peace of the Korean peninsula and furthermore global peace and security.
If it persists in anti-DPRK sanctions without understanding its rival, the administration will have to take full responsibility for the ensuing catastrophic consequences. -0-
DPRK Will Bolster Nuclear Deterrence at Maximum Speed: Foreign Ministry Spokesman
Pyongyang, May 1 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK in a statement Monday said that the touch-and-go situation, created on the Korean peninsula due to the U.S. DPRK-targeted joint military exercises for aggression and the military threat, has left a serious lesson.
The confrontation between the DPRK and the U.S. has lasted for more than half a century but the U.S. aggression hysteria has never reached such a height and the situation on the Korean peninsula has never inched close to the brink of nuclear war as in the period of the recent drills, the statement said, and went on:
The situation on the Korean peninsula proves once again that the U.S. is the chieftain of aggression and war, and harasser of peace who is escalating tension and that the DPRK was just and far-sighted when it opted for bolstering its powerful nuclear deterrence for self-defence under the uplifted banner of the simultaneous development of the two fronts.
If the DPRK had not had access to the powerful nuclear force and had not gotten itself ready to counter the U.S. and its vassal forces' provocation with merciless military counteraction, the U.S. would have committed without hesitation the same brigandish aggression act in Korea as what it committed against other countries.
In order to check such high-handed and arbitrary practices and defend the sovereignty and the right to existence of the country and the nation, and to contribute to regional peace and security and genuine international justice, the DPRK has been bolstering its nuclear deterrence despite manifold difficulties.
The recent confrontation with the U.S. reminds us once again of the iron truth that one has to build one's own strength in order to defend oneself from the whirlwind of history in which it is neither aided nor sympathized by anyone.
Now that the U.S. is kicking up the overall racket for sanctions and pressure against the DPRK, pursuant to its new DPRK policy called "maximum pressure and engagement", the DPRK will speed up at the maximum pace the measure for bolstering its nuclear deterrence.
The DPRK is fully ready to respond to any option taken by the U.S., and unless it withdraws its hideous hostile policy toward the DPRK and nuclear threat and blackmail, the DPRK will continue to bolster its military capabilities for self-defence and preemptive nuclear attack with the nuclear force as a pivot.
The DPRK's measures for bolstering the nuclear force to the maximum will be taken in a consecutive and successive way at any moment and any place decided by its supreme leadership. -0-
Spokesman for Korean Jurists Committee Hits out at U.S. Missile Attack on Syria
Pyongyang, April 14 (KCNA) -- The U.S. should be punished according to international law as its military attack on Syria was an undisguised act of aggression and war crime, says a spokesman for the Korean Jurists Committee in a statement on Friday.
Recalling that the U.S. attacked an airbase of the army of the Syrian government with dozens of cruise missiles on March 7 under the absurd pretext of the Syrian army's use of chemical weapons, the statement says:
This act should never be pardoned as it runs counter to the UN General Assembly resolution on definition of aggression and Paris Treaty on war renouncement and constitutes an act of aggression and a war crime definitely specified by the Nuremberg Military Tribunal.
It is the U.S. which is most loud-mouthed about "implementation of resolutions" since it initiated and signed the treaty on war renouncement before anyone else.
But the U.S. used aggression and war as a lever for carrying out its policy in disregard of international law. It made missile attacks on the countries incurring its disfavor in wanton violation of their sovereignty.
The international community should never tolerate the U.S. attack on Syria but mete out a due punishment to the harasser of peace. -0-
KAPPC Spokesman Slams U.S. for Scheme to Keep Its Colonial Rule over S. Korea
Pyongyang, March 31 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee released a statement on Friday as regards the fact that the U.S. is running the whole gamut of intrigues to tighten its colonial domination over south Korea and persist in its hostile policy towards the DPRK as it feels uneasy about the increasing likelihood of the collapse of the pro-U.S. conservative "government" and the victory of the progressive and pro-reform forces in the coming "presidential" election.
Shortly ago, the special representative for DPRK policy of the U.S. Department of State met figures of major opposition parties of south Korea to tap their attitude toward the deployment of THAAD and "nuclear issue of the north" and busied himself pressing them to accept its hostile policy toward the DPRK. Early in February the director general of the Atlantic Council of the U.S., one of the confidants of Trump, flew into south Korea in secret. When coming in touch with a "presidential" candidate from an opposition party, he tried to "verify" the former's "view on the U.S. and north Korea".
The U.S. is openly wooing senior officials of the White House and the administration, congressmen and media into underscoring the need to prioritize the alliance with south Korea and strengthen it regardless of which regime appears there and steadily maintain the foundation of sanctions against the DPRK. It seeks to effect the deployment of THAAD before the "presidential" election so that the next regime may not reverse it.
These moves are open high-handed practices for forcing the next regime to follow the policy of confrontation with the fellow countrymen pursued by the Park Geun Hye group of traitors in a bid to keep its system for domination, use south Korea as its permanent colony and outpost for carrying out its strategy for dominating Asia-Pacific, the statement said, and went on:
The massive candlelight actions of south Korean people, which culminated in removing traitor Park Geun Hye from office, were an eruption of their bitter resentment against her "government's" despicable submission and sycophancy towards outside forces and an expression of their strong desire to win back the usurped sovereignty.
The gangster-like U.S. is the chieftain who has inflicted untold pain and misfortune upon the south Korean people and arch criminal disturbing national reconciliation, unity and reunification and threatening peace and security on the Korean Peninsula and in the region.
The tragic reality of south Korea goes to clearly prove that sycophancy towards the U.S. and submission to it lead to national ruin and destruction but national independence is the way to survive and achieve reunification. -0-
U.S. Administration's Bid to Threaten DPRK under Fire
Pyongyang, March 20 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry Monday gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA as regards the fact that the U.S. Administration tried to threaten the DPRK and impose pressure upon it, taking advantage of U.S. Secretary of State Tillerson's tour of Japan, south Korea and China:
Tillerson admitted the failure of the U.S. efforts to denuclearize the DPRK for 20 years and end of Obama's policy of "strategic patience" during his recent tour of those countries. He said that the U.S. would militarily counteract to the DPRK's threat to the U.S. and its allies.
Now Tillerson is repeating what Obama touted much about sanctions until he left the White House.
What matters is that neither Obama nor Tillerson knows the reason why the DPRK had to have access to nuclear weapons and why it is dynamically bolstering up the nuclear force.
The nuclear force of the DPRK is the treasured sword of justice and the most reliable war deterrence to defend the socialist motherland and the life of its people.
The U.S. should face up to the situation of the world with its eyes wide open.
The DPRK has the will and capability to fully respond to any war the U.S. would like to ignite.
If the businessmen-turned U.S. authorities thought that they would frighten the DPRK, they would soon know that their method would not work on the latter.
The world will soon witness what eventful significance the great victory won by the DPRK in the recent ground jet test of Korean-style high-thrust engine will carry. -0-
History Society of DPRK Exposes Thrice-Cursed Crimes of Park Geun Hye Family
Pyongyang, February 26 (KCNA) -- The History Society of the DPRK issued an indictment Sunday disclosing the thrice-cursed crimes committed by the "yusin" family in order to teach the history the lesson that the nation has to suffer big misfortune and shame if it has such dirty group of traitors as the family of Park Geun Hye.
It is shame on the nation that it has the dirty family of matchless traitors as that of Park who prolong their lives with flunkeyism and commit only crimes while enjoying wealth and leading luxurious life in return for treachery to the nation, the indictment said, and went on:
Park Geun Hye's grandfather Park Song Bin was a traitor who took a government post for his "meritorious deed" in taking the lead in quelling Jon Pong Jun peasant soldiers who rose under the banner of "rejection of west and Japan" and "promotion of national interests and welfare of the people".
This traitor was ancestor of top-class traitor Park Chung-hee to be followed by Park Geun Hye and other descendents who put the father into the shade.
An "imperial subject" who wrote a blood-written pledge of "loyalty" to the Japanese emperor, root cause of aggression and plunder which drenched the 3 000-ri land of golden tapestry with blood, was none other than Park Chung-hee.
Park Chung-hee's sycophancy toward the U.S. far surpassed her father's pro-Japanese treachery.
The father's pro-Japanese and pro-U.S. acts of treachery were given continuity by Park Geun Hye and his other offspring.
All the successive puppet rulers relied on outsiders but none of them completely sold off the nation's dignity and interests without judgment being obsessed with flunkeyism and treachery as Park Geun Hye.
Park Geun Hye declared the permanent renouncement of the wartime operation control usurped by the U.S., worked desperate to bring THAAD to south Korea, nullified the crimes related to the sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army and opened the road of reinvasion for the Japanese reactionaries, sworn enemy of the Korean nation, through the conclusion of an agreement on the protection of military intelligence for aggression.
Park Geun Hye's family members have vied with each other in selling off the nation.
Her younger sister Park Geun Ryong called Japanese king "emperor", saying "we have to serve Japan and the U.S." and "we should not blame visit to Yasukuni Shrine". She even said without hesitation that it is "shameful for south Korea to request Japan to make apology for the past".
Park Geun Ryong's husband Sin Tong Uk rushed to the hospital where the U.S. ambassador in south Korea was taken after sustaining a knife attack in front of which he performed "fast meant to beg apology for heinous crime" only to be blamed and jeered by the public.
Exposing the hideous anti-reunification crimes committed by the father and daughter, the indictment continued:
Park Chung-hee belittled and insulted the July 4 joint statement which the north and the south agreed for the first time as "a piece of paper" and has opted for confrontation with the fellow countrymen and national division.
The grudge-bearing concrete wall that cuts across the territory of Korea is a clear proof of the anti-reunification crime committed by traitor Park Chung-hee.
Park Geun Hye's hysteric fit will make even her father get dumbfounded.
Soon after becoming the boss of Chongwadae, she trumpeted about "north policy" such as "confidence-building process" and "Dresden declaration", disclosing her ambition for confrontation with the fellow countrymen and unification of systems and insulted the sacred desire for reunification of the nation with such vulgar words as "luck for unification" used by traders and gamblers.
She wined and dined human scum at Chongwadae and egged them on to scatter anti-DPRK leaflets and set up the UN "office on human rights in north", anti-DPRK plot-breeding organization, in south Korea which her predecessors dared not.
She closed the Kaesong Industrial Zone, a product of the June 15 era of reunification and the last hope of the north-south relations, an anti-reunification and confrontational act putting into the shade the crime committed by her father by building a concrete wall to divide the territory of the country into two.
She is holding all kinds of DPRK-targeted nuclear war exercises together with her American and Japanese masters almost every day and is agitating "defection from the north", not content with the racket for smear "human rights" campaign against the DPRK. These remind one of the hysteria of her father who kicked up the racket for a war against the north as they can be committed only by the offspring of traitor Park Chung-hee who dreamed a wild dream while crying out for "unification by prevailing over communism".
Exposing the "new records" of tyranny set by the dictatorial family, the indictment goes on:
Through 18 years of office Park Chung-hee enacted fascist evil laws of all descriptions and formed suppression organizations, turning whole south Korea into military prison, an area without freedom and human rights and a veritable hell.
At the hands of the dictator, more than 2 000 evil laws were enacted or retrogressively revised.
Park Geun Hye eulogized and justified her father's dictatorial rule and fully revived "yusin" dictatorship.
She turned south Korea into the barren land of democracy and human rights while crying out for "defending system" and "eliminating the forces following the north".
Park Chung-hee and Park Geun Hye worked harder than any other successive puppet rulers to suppress legitimate media as evidenced by the ban on Minjok Ilbo and Jaju Minbo.
Park Geun Hye family members are all ugly human rejects.
History and nation will never pardon such despicable group.
Park Geun Hye, the eldest daughter of the family of traitors, is waiting for the stern punishment by history while breathing her last in a dark room in Chongwadae with her "presidential" duty suspended.
Miserable end is an unavoidable fate sealed for the most despicable family of traitors. -0-

FM Spokesman Denounces U.S. State Secretary's Remarks Faulting Dignity of Supreme Leadership of DPRK
Pyongyang, January 19 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA Thursday in connection with the fact that the U.S. State Secretary made remarks faulting the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK:
U.S. State Secretary Kerry at a briefing at the Davos world economic forum on Jan. 17 spouted coarse invective that deployment of THAAD in south Korea is to "cope with the nuclear weapons of north Korea and the potentiality of its reckless and unverified impulsive dictator."
The rubbish made by bete noire Kerry against the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK is nothing but a shriek made by the wretched one bound for ruin after sustaining only bitter defeat and shame in the stand-off with the DPRK, failing to realize the wild ambition for "bringing down" the DPRK.
Kerry's remarks are just ridiculous rubbish of a loser thrown into extreme horror and uneasiness, much upset by the shining development made by the DPRK, which has risen as a nuclear power and a military power in the East.
He had better repent of his crime of having pushed the DPRK-U.S. relations and the regional situation into the worst catastrophe through the extreme hostile policy toward the DPRK during his tenure of office.
Whoever provokes even a little the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK, which represents our destiny, will be made to pay a very high price beyond imagination. -0-
Press Report of WPK Central Committee on Conclusion of 200-day Campaign
Pyongyang, December 19 (KCNA) -- The Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) made public a press report Sunday on the victorious conclusion of the 200-day campaign on Dec. 15 after it was started on June 1.
The 200-day campaign was an all-people drive for successive attack and a breakthrough for defending the spirit of the 7th Congress of the WPK and glorifying 2016 as the greatest heyday of the revolution by expanding and developing the victory won in the 70-day campaign, and a great battle for creation of the self-development-first spirit and the great battle for creation of speed of Mallima, the press report said.
It went on: The single-minded unity of the party and the revolutionary ranks, mainstay of the Juche revolution, has been consolidated as firm as a rock. This is the biggest victory won in the 200-day campaign.
The heroic officers and men of the People's Army set an excellent example of devotedly carrying forward the instructions of the leaders on the foremost fronts and kindled the flame of implementing the party's idea and defending the party's policies all over the country by holding fast to the treasured sword of defending the revolution and the people, and thus fulfilled their duty as the revolutionary army of the party in consolidating the great army-people unity.
The young Kimilsungist-Kimjongilist vanguard displayed resourcefulness and bravery of heroic youths in all difficult and toilsome worksites.
The heroic Kimilsungist-Kimjongilist working class, agricultural workers, intellectuals and women displayed the spiritual and moral traits of helping and leading each other forward with kindred feelings while upholding the party and the leader with white gem-like loyalty and increased production.

DPRK Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hits out at UNSC "Sanctions Resolution"
Pyongyang, December 1 (KCNA) -- The UN Security Council adopted a "sanctions resolution" faulting the nuclear warhead explosion test conducted by the DPRK in September last.
A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK in a statement on Thursday said that the DPRK strongly censures and categorically rejects it as another excess of authority and violation of the DPRK's sovereignty by the UNSC acting under instructions of the U.S.
The DPRK's successful test was one of practical steps taken by it to tackle the nuclear threat and sanctions by the U.S. and other hostile forces desperately taking issue with the exercise of the DPRK's right to self-defence and it is also a demonstration of the toughest stand of the service personnel and people of the DPRK that they are ready to launch a counterattack in case the enemy make a provocation, the statement said.
Many countries including all the permanent member states of the UNSC have so far conducted thousands of nuclear tests and rocket launches but the UNSC has never prevented them from doing so, it noted, and went on:
Obama and his lackeys are sadly mistaken if they calculate that they can force the DPRK to abandon its line of nuclear weaponization and undermine its status as a nuclear power through base sanctions to pressurize it.
The DPRK will never deal with them but more dynamically advance along the road of justice chosen by it.
The "sanctions resolution" that denied outright the sovereignty of the DPRK and its rights to existence and development will trigger off its tougher countermeasures for self-defence.
Sanctions will inevitably escalate tensions and the U.S., chief culprit of the "sanctions resolution", will be held wholly accountable in case the situation on the Korean peninsula and in the region is pushed to an uncontrollable phase. -0-
DPRK Delegate Rejects "Draft Resolution" A/C.3/71/L.23
Pyongyang, November 17 (KCNA) -- The DPRK delegate made the following speech at the Third Committee of the 71st Session of the United Nations General Assembly on November 15, 2016:
The delegation of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) categorically and resolutely rejects the "draft resolution" A/C.3/71/L.23 on the human rights situation in the DPRK submitted by the European Union (EU) and Japan.
The "draft resolution" represents extreme manifestation of politicization, selectivity and double standards of human rights. It is nothing but a document for interfering in internal affairs of a sovereign state as it contains unprecedentedly fraudulent allegations.
The "draft resolution" just repeated in detail the contents of the "report of COI" running through with all lies, fabrications, plots and frauds. The "draft resolution" based on only the "report of COI" expounds "crimes against humanity," which reminds us of the time 13 years ago when the US was telling the lie at the United Nations that "there are weapons of mass destruction in Iraq."
The "draft resolution" even touched on non-existing issue of the so-called "forced labour" and "exploitation" of our workers sent abroad and "nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles" that have no relevance to human rights. As such, it is quite clear to everyone that it pursues political purpose to isolate and stifle the DPRK, in conjunction with the anti-DPRK sanction racket by the United States.
The contents of the "draft resolution" slandering the DPRK are sheer lies told by the south Korean chief executive on the basis of misinformation provided by human scum, "defectors" from the north who fled after committing crimes, taken in by the female shaman's words that the DPRK would collapse in 2 years to come.
In this context, the establishment of the unprecedented UN Human Rights Office in Seoul last year and the absurd allegations at recent UN human rights meetings which handled the "nuclear and ballistic missile" issues that are not relevant to human rights represent an outcome of the policy of an inexperienced shaman in south Korea. Therefore, it comes to the conclusion that the United Nations human rights mechanisms have also played into the hands of the inexperienced shaman.
Beyond imagination are the extra-large scale crimes against humanity in south Korea such as ferry "Sewol" disaster that left hundreds of children buried at the bottom of the sea, open instigation of our people to "defect" and abduction of the DPRK women citizens in a foreign country in broad daylight by gangsters of the south Korean Intelligence Service.
These unprecedented human rights violations are entirely attributable to the abnormal thinking and inveterate confrontation mentality of the present south Korean chief executive against the DPRK as she completely paralyzed the function of the south Korean society under the control of the inexperienced shaman.
Therefore, the world should now pay primary attention to addressing the grave human rights violations in the United States, western countries and south Korea, in particular.
The "draft resolution" pursues the heinous political purpose of overthrowing our system by following the hostile policy of the United States against the DPRK.
The United States has left no means untried to bring about collapse of its state and social system, persistently pursuing the hostile policy against the DPRK for over half a century since its inception.
The United States has maneuvered so far to press the DPRK with the nuclear and "human rights" issues in parallel. However, the United States, realizing that they could not succeed in by the nuclear issue, is now trying to eliminate the DPRK under the disguise of the "human right issue."
The United States continuously introduces into the Korean peninsula a large amount of its strategic nuclear assets and stages various kinds of aggressive joint military exercises with south Korea. It openly wages even the drills aimed at "decapitation" of the leadership of the DPRK and "occupation of Pyongyang."
Joining in such maneuvers of the United States, the EU and Japan tabled the anti-DPRK "draft resolution" at the Third Committee again this year.
The EU and Japan, the main sponsors of the "draft resolution" are not qualified to deliberate on others' human rights issue.
Now the world clearly witnesses such crimes against humanity by the United States and western countries as military invasion and massacre of innocent civilians in several countries in the Middle East, Iraq and Afghanistan, in particular, as well as turning those countries into a wilderness of human rights.
The EU and Japan turn aside such crimes against humanity of the United States.
As a matter of utmost urgency, the EU should rather pay attention to cleaning up their houses first by reflecting upon and bringing to justice those responsible for the crimes against humanity including xenophobia, Islamophobia, defamation of religion and neo-Nazism that are rampant in their own territories and the worst-ever refugee crisis caused by the United States and western countries themselves.
Moreover, Japan refuses to apologize and compensate for such extra-large crimes against humanity it had committed in the past towards the Korean people and many other countries of the world as abduction and forcible drafting of 8.4 million Koreans, massacre of 1 million of them and imposition of sexual slavery on 200 000 women and girls. Japan should mind its own business.
The "draft resolution" has nothing to do with promotion and protection of genuine human rights as it is designed for the political purpose of stifling the DPRK by politicizing and maximizing the fictitious "human right issue."
The illegality of the "draft resolution" is also clearly proved by the decreasing number of co-sponsors as days go by and, furthermore, by the reluctance of the international community, especially the majority of NAM countries to co-sponsor it, except for the West.
The DPRK exists on the basis of Juche philosophy centered on the popular masses and with its politics for the people and the system for the human rights of the people.
It is the consistent policy of the Government of the DPRK to continuously protect and promote the human rights of the popular masses with full responsibility.
The Government of the DPRK, despite persistent sanctions and pressure by the United States and other hostile forces, is concentrating all its efforts on improving the livelihood of the people and securing better future for them.
It is the stark reality of the DPRK that such superior measures for popular masses as universal free medical care, free education, free housing and equality between men and women continue to take effect and that all people fully exercise and enjoy their human rights in all sectors of their social life.
The people in the DPRK take immense pride in the socialist system of the country which was chosen, consolidated and further developed by their own will as well as in the genuine system of ensuring human rights which capitalism can neither achieve nor imitate at all.
The DPRK hopes for sincere dialogue and cooperation in the international human rights field. However, it will strongly respond to the end to the confrontation and pressure aimed at stifling its system and take all appropriate measures vis-a-vis the hostile acts against the DPRK that become increasingly aggressive under the pretext of "human rights."
As in the past, there is no change in the position of the DPRK that neither recognizes nor accepts those anti-DPRK "resolutions" adopted by force at the Human Right Council and the Third Committee of the UNGA.
My delegation roundly rejects once again the "draft resolution" as an illegal and unlawful document of plot which is not worth consideration. In this vein, we do not even feel the need to call for a vote. Even if this "draft resolution" is railroaded, it is crystal clear to anyone that this can never be considered as a consensus.
My delegation expects that the distinguished representatives of the member states will clearly contemplate on the hidden motive and purpose of the politicized and confrontational draft "resolution" against the DPRK submitted by the EU and Japan. Moreover, my delegation calls upon the representatives to oppose the adoption of the "resolution" by clear statement of their disassociation from the consensus. -0-
National Reconciliation Council Issues Open Questionnaire to Traitor Park Geun Hye
Pyongyang, October 19 (KCNA) -- The National Reconciliation Council issued an open questionnaire to traitor Park Geun Hye on Wednesday as regards her recent confrontation hysteria that reached its height.
She has gone so far as to incite "defection from the north," daring talk about "sign of its collapse" and "self-ruin," not content with crying out for a "preemptive strike" at the DPRK, pursuant to her master U.S. hostile policy toward it, the questionnaire noted.
Ridiculing her hysteric confrontation racket as a desperate last-ditch bid to tide over the serious ruling crisis close to her final ruin, taken aback by the DPRK's rapid bolstering of its national power, the National Reconciliation Council questioned Park as follows:
Now is the time for you to open to public the fact that "confidence-building process" and "gaining a great opportunity of unification" touted by you was chicanery to realize the wild dream for "unification through absorption" at the U.S. beck and call, isn't it?
Will you persist in shameless acts to conceal the fact that what you touted was a trite artifice to cover up your sinister design to realize the wild ambition for "unification through absorption" now that your confrontational intention has been fully revealed?
You cry out for a "preemptive strike" with the backing of the U.S. Do you not care about Seoul including Chongwadae and all other parts of south Korea being reduced to a sea in flames and debris by a prompt and merciless counter-strikes of the DPRK?
Do you think you can remain indifferent to the above-said event and you can survive a nuclear war?
Don't you know that your open agitation of "defection from the north" is hideous allurement and abduction and a thrice-cursed crime against humanity diametrically running counter to international law and the UN Charter?
Openly agitating "defection" among the people of a sovereign state is just a blatant challenge and wanton violation of the UN Charter and international law stipulating it as the fundamental principle to respect sovereignty of all countries and not interfere in their internal affairs and specifying abduction as crime against humanity.
You often accuse others, talking about "observance of the UN Charter" and "international law", but make no scruple of committing inhuman crimes, ignorant of the above-said elementary principle, don't you?
Can you own responsibility for groundlessly distorting the reality in the DPRK and decrying its sincere efforts for mending the north-south relations by running the whole gamut of lies, tricks and fabrications to incite hostility toward the compatriots in the north during your tenure of office?
The ruler ill-famed for lies and fabrications is bound to meet a stern punishment of history after being forsaken by the people.
Can you own responsibility before history and the nation for falsifying truth about the DPRK and desperately inciting bad blood toward the fellow countrymen in the north by floating wild rumors about them?
Can you allow south Koreans to come here and see what is happening in the north for themselves when all ways to the north are kept open, not preventing them from seeing and hearing about the DPRK as you are desperately negating the eye-opening realities in the DPRK?
You'd better come here and see if you want to help south Koreans dispel their doubts about "contingency", "instable social system" and "effective sanctions."
You may send all who want to come here and see if you are not in a position to personally come here for fear of punishment for your sins.
Are you ready to acknowledge the thrice-cursed crimes you have committed by hurting the dignity and honor of the service personnel and people of the DPRK and face a stern judgment at a DPRK court?
The supreme judicial organ of the DPRK branded you as a top-class criminal and sentenced you to capital punishment long ago according to the criminal code of the DPRK.
As you unhesitatingly and desperately insulted the symbol of the dignity and glory of the DPRK, you should be "emboldened" to pay a dear price for it. Can you do so? -0-
Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee Warns Hostile Forces against Political and Military Provocations
Pyongyang, September 13 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee issued a statement Tuesday in connection with the fact that the hostile forces are committing extremely heinous provocations against the DPRK over its recent nuclear warheads explosion test.
The U.S. and its followers are making much fuss, creating impression that a nuclear bomb was dropped in downtown Washington or Seoul.
They let the UN release a "press statement" and are crying out for applying high-profile sanctions to totally strangle the "windpipe of the north." They went the lengths of threatening to make a preemptive military strike at the DPRK, escalating threat and blackmail against it to the extremes.
Taking the lead in this campaign is the Park Geun Hye group of traitors.
The hearts of the service personnel and people of the DPRK are now burning with hatred for the sworn enemies who are hurting even the supreme leadership of the DPRK which represents their life and dignity, not content with resorting to all kinds of evil things in a bid to deny and undermine the ideology and social system in the DPRK.
Running sky-high now is the resentment of the people of the DPRK at the U.S., architect and executor of the harsh hostile policy toward the DPRK, and Japan and other riff-raffs dancing to the tune of the U.S. and even the UN acting without principle bereft of impartiality and justice.
The DPRK is fully ready to mercilessly strike brutal provocateurs keen on sanctions, actions to stifle it and aggression and war moves against it century after century and wipe them out to the last man any moment, the spokesman said, declaring the stand as follows:
If the U.S. imperialists and their vassal forces show even a slight sign of launching the "beheading operation" for what they call "collapse of social system" and "conquest of Pyongyang", an order will be immediately issued to the Hwasong artillery units of the Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army to fire rockets fully tipped with nuclear warheads although it is not what we desired.
Neither sanctions nor provocation nor pressure can ever bring down the position of the DPRK as a full-fledged nuclear weapons state, and high-handed political and military provocations of the enemies will only invite a merciless nuclear strike which will lead them to a final ruin.
The state nuclear force of the DPRK will creditably perform its sacred mission of defending the dignity of the supreme leadership and the interests of the country and safeguarding the sovereignty and vital rights of the nation and make positive contribution to the peace and stability in Northeast Asia. -0-
Chief of Security Officers in Panmunjom Warns S. Korean Side against Provocation
Pyongyang, August 27 (KCNA) -- The chief of security officers of the Korean People's Army (KPA) at Panmunjom warned the provocateurs as follows Saturday against their deliberate provocation getting on the nerves of the soldiers of the KPA side in the area of Panmunjom:
Floodlight directed at the KPA side at random is taken as an intolerable means of provocation and it will be the target of merciless pinpoint shots.
The fate of provocateurs running reckless in front of the KPA side cannot be otherwise.
The KPA does not make an empty talk.
According to the chief of security officers, the enemies are directing high-wattage floodlight to the observation outpost of the KPA side and committing deliberate provocation rattling the nerves of KPA soldiers on purpose from Friday evening in the sensitive area of Panmunjom at a time when the situation on the Korean peninsula has reached the brink of a war due to the Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military drills the U.S. imperialists started with the south Korean puppet forces.
This has seriously threatened the safety of the KPA soldiers on duty and hindered their normal observation activities.
Saying that Panmunjom is well known as the hotspot where even an accidental minor act may spill over into an irrevocable physical conflict in a moment, the chief continued:
The U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet forces who are well aware of this are escalating the tension on the Korean peninsula to extremes while conducting the joint military drill for aggression. The provocation being committed against this backdrop cannot be construed otherwise than a premeditated and intentional plot against the KPA.
The true aim sought by the provocateurs through their recent act is to seriously get on the nerves of the KPA soldiers, lead them to take due countermeasures and label them as provocation.
The chief clarified that the KPA soldiers at Panmunjom are closely following the moves of the provocateurs. -0-
DPRK Foreign Ministry Spokesman Denounces U.S. Nuclear Arms Buildup
Pyongyang, August 17 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK issued a statement on Wednesday in connection with the fact that the situation on the Korean peninsula has entered a very grave phase due to the U.S. ceaseless nuclear arms buildup targeting the DPRK.
The statement said that the U.S. brought to the Anderson air force base on Guam, on which B-52H strategic bombers are already deployed, several B-1Bs on August 6 and three B-2As on August 9, the first of their kinds in ten years, according to a report. It went on:
The introduction of the nuclear strategic bombers to Guam by the U.S. in the wake of its official decision on the deployment of THAAD in south Korea after bringing into the Korean peninsula and its vicinity strategic assets including nuclear-powered carrier and nuclear submarines proves that the U.S. plan for a preemptive nuclear strike at the DPRK has entered a reckless phase of implementation.
Such military moves of the U.S. are part of its sinister strategy to contain Russia and China in the Asia-Pacific and maintain its military hegemony in the region, not just aiming at a surprise preemptive nuclear strike at the DPRK.
It is the fixed stand of the DPRK to fundamentally remove the danger of a nuclear war imposed by the U.S. by dint of a powerful nuclear deterrence and safeguard the peace and security in the region and the world.
The army and people of the DPRK will never remain an on-looker to the U.S. nuclear threat and blackmail getting ever-more pronounced with each passing day, but will whet more sharply the treasured sword of nuclear weapons of justice for defending the sovereignty and security of the country.
If the U.S. goes reckless, misjudging the trend of the times and the strategic position of the DPRK, all the U.S. military bases in the operational theatre in the Pacific including Guam will face ruin in the face of all-out and substantial attack to be mounted by the army of the DPRK. -0-
CPRC Spokesman Censures Park Geun Hye Group's Smear Campaign against DPRK
Pyongyang, August 11 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country (CPRC) of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea gave an answer to the question raised by KCNA on Thursday as regards the south Korean puppet regime's accusations against the DPRK to dodge the mounting criticism of the THAAD deployment in south Korea.
The south Korean puppet group are driven into a tight corner by the strong criticism and protest against the THAAD deployment from not only south Korean public but also from all Koreans and the international community, the statement noted, and continued:
They deserve it for their inveterate sycophancy towards the U.S. and pro-U.S. policy, utterly indifferent to the national dignity and interests.
It is well known that Park Geun Hye flew into the U.S. and took an oath to be loyal to Obama right after she came to power as she knew well the reason why her father, "yusin" dictator, was shot to death by a confidant of the U.S.
Such traitor is describing the THAAD deployment as "an independent resolution" to cope with the "threat" from the DPRK. This is sophism that provokes a side-splitting laughter.
No matter how hard the Park group try to pass the buck to the DPRK to get rid of the pretty fix due to the THAAD deployment, nobody will be taken in by their petty trick and they cannot conceal their treacherous act of gravely threatening the peace on the Korean peninsula and in the region in pursuance of the U.S. scenario.
Great irony is that the south Korean puppet group are behaving disgustingly, claiming that they can roll back the plan for THAAD deployment as they please if the north dismantles its nukes and missiles.
They dare compare the self-defensive nuclear force, pride of Juche Korea, with scrap-iron-like THAAD as if having a bargaining. This is nothing but an absurd jargon of the fools failing to know who their rival is.
The south Korean regime should know well that the DPRK's nukes can never be an object of bargaining with the U.S. and others. It had better bear in mind that its peddling "threat from the north's nukes" here and there would get it nowhere.
It is as clear as noonday that the whole of south Korea is bound to turn into a theatre of a nuclear war to be launched by the U.S. and the south Korean people will be put at greater peril as long as top-class pro-U.S. lackey Park Geun Hye stays in power.
All Koreans are called upon to resolutely bury Park Geun Hye group, disgrace to the nation and troublemaker of the international community, to defuse the ever-increasing danger of U.S. nuclear war against the DPRK and preserve peace on the peninsula and in the region. -0-
Director General of Department of U.S. Affairs of FM Interviewed by Chief of AP Pyongyang Bureau
Pyongyang, July 28 (KCNA) -- The director general of the Department of U.S. Affairs of the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK Thursday was interviewed by the chief of AP Pyongyang Bureau on a visit to the DPRK on the recent situation on the Korean peninsula.
Answering the question as to the situation prevailing on the Korean Peninsula, the director general clarified that it is the DPRK's just right to take the toughest counteraction against the U.S. as it went beyond the "red line" in the standoff with the DPRK and declared a war against the DPRK by daring hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK.
The U.S. recent moves such as ceaseless introduction of strategic assets to the vicinity of the Korean peninsula and decision to deploy THAAD in south Korea hint that it will stage unprecedented maneuvers during the joint military drill to be held in August, he said, clarifying that if an undesirable event occurs on the peninsula during the joint military drill, the U.S. would be held wholly responsible for it and that the DPRK is fully ready for any physical steps.
He stressed that the DPRK will continue to take the tough counteraction against the U.S. unless it rolls back its hostile policy towards the DPRK aiming at "bringing down its social system." -0-
DPRK Foreign Ministry Spokesman Slams U.S. Ambassador for Flying above S. Korea aboard Fighter
Pyongyang, July 19 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry gave the following answer to the question raised by KCNA Tuesday as regards the fact that the U.S. ambassador to south Korea took a F-16 under the U.S. 7th Air Force to fly the sky over south Korea on July 12:
This is nothing but a bullying act that can be done only by a deranged man.
The fact that he who is outwardly a diplomat took the fighter unbecoming for his duty goes to clearly prove that all the U.S. diplomats are real war servants.
At the moment when the U.S. ever more undisguised hostile moves and nuclear threats against the DPRK are bringing the dark clouds of a nuclear war to hang over the Korean peninsula, it is a very meaningful thing that the U.S. ambassador to south Korea who personally has a hand in shaping the U.S. DPRK policy and implementing it flew above south Korea aboard fighter.
What should not be overlooked is that such a crazy act was timed to coincide with the U.S. official decision to deploy THAAD in south Korea in the wake of the introduction of nuclear submarines and a formation of B-52Hs and other strategic assets into south Korea.
The ill-boding moves of the U.S. being observed one after another with the joint military exercises Ulji Freedom Guardian for aggression to be staged in upcoming August indicate its intention to press for the unprecedented acts on the Korean peninsula.
We are closely following these moves of the U.S. and will take stronger self-defensive nuclear countermeasures for defending the country's sovereignty and the nation's right to existence from the U.S. daily-increasing nuclear war threats. -0-
