US’ WAR CRIMES AND HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES EXPOSED

An article disclosing the crimes committed by the US against humanity during the Korean war was recently posted on Washington Free Beacon, a US website. The article noted the US committed terrible evil doings against north Korea by dropping more bombs there than those it had dropped in all Pacific battle sites during the Second World War, destroying many cities, killing tens of thousands of innocent civilians and forcing them to suffer without shelter and from starvation.
This is just a tip of iceberg of the massacres and human rights abuses the US has committed in its mainland, human rights tundra, and other parts of the world for a long period. As disclosed, the US had committed horrible genocides against Koreans in various parts of the DPRK in less than two months since the outbreak of the Korean War.
In Sinchon County alone, they mercilessly killed by barbarous methods baffling human imagination more than 35 000 people or one fourth of the county's population. From the beginning of January to March in 1952 nine regiments of the US air force made a total of 804 sorties to spread germ-carrying insects and things and bombs over 169 areas in the northern half of Korea, an unprecedented germ warfare to exterminate the Korean nation. GIs have killed many innocent peoples of various countries under the pretext of "war on terrorism." More than 1 205 000 Iraqis lost their lives and a million were missing for five years since 2003 due to GIs' reckless military operations. Over 3 000 Afghans fell victims to the GIs' "war on terrorism" in 2011 alone. Due to the US drone attack under the pretext of "destroying bases of terrorists", many civilians lost their lives in various countries.
This notwithstanding, the US is styling itself a protector of "human rights" and a champion of "humanitarianism" while taking issue with others' "human rights performance." US Secretary of State Kerry reportedly urged the staff members of his Department recently to prevent information leakage after a series of top secrets were opened to public by media. Among the cases is the one that a high-ranking official of the Department of State in an "annual report" on flesh traffic diluted its contents in an effort to play down the records of a country's flesh traffic, which was opened to public by internet.
As seen above, all the "human rights reports" the US issues annually by inventing various pretexts to take issue with human rights performance of other countries are no more than sheer fabrications to interfere in the internal affairs of the countries and thus attain its ulterior purposes. It has become clearer this time that the "report of the Inquiry Commission" issued last year to take issue with the human rights performance in the DPRK was the one peppered with lies and fabrications.
No wonder, Kerry is troubled with the leakage of top secrets including the above-said fabrication of information about flesh traffic.

The US can never cover up its true colors as the worst human rights abuser in the world.

DPRK FM ON SITUATION THAT REACHED BRINK OF WAR

As already reported, the south Korean puppet forces perpetrated again such grave military provocation as firing dozens of shells into the area of the DPRK's side in the area along the Military Demarcation Line on Thursday.
The DPRK Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Friday in this connection:
The south Korean puppet forces claimed before any others that they made a retaliatory firing because the DPRK's side fired one shell first, but this was a completely sheer lie and fabrication.
On Thursday the DPRK's side clarified that it did not fire even a single bullet or single shell at the enemy's side first nor it made any accidental firing.
The recent shelling incident unilaterally committed by the south Korean puppet forces was neither incidental nor an accident but a carefully calculated provocation committed by themselves.
It is a trite method of the successive south Korean rulers to cook up a shocking incident in the area along the MDL whenever they face a crisis in a bid to divert the attention of public at home and abroad elsewhere and seek a way out of it.
The recent incident was an undisguised provocation aimed to tide over their crisis, get breathing spell and strain the situation on the Korean Peninsula to an extreme pitch of tension and thus spoil other's festival.
The enemy cooked up the "mine explosion" case in an area along the Military Demarcation Line and resumed broadcasting for psychological warfare against the north under that pretext in a bid to rattle its nerve to the worst extent, while staging large-scale joint military exercises together with the U.S. By escalating the tension this way, they carried out the artillery firing after creating psychological situation to make the international community think the DPRK's side might fire one shell first and are now insisting it was "firing in retaliation" against the former's shelling.
However, the enemy were seriously mistaken this time.
They tried to divert elsewhere the attention of the world people through the shelling, becoming unable to escape the fate of perishing in the flames kindled by themselves.
The General Staff of the Korean People's Army sent an ultimatum to the south Korean puppet Ministry of Defense at 17:00, Pyongyang time, on August 20 that a strong military action would be launched unless it stops the anti-DPRK broadcasting for psychological warfare and dismantles all psywar means within 48 hours.
The Central Military Commission of the Workers' Party of Korea examined and ratified the offensive operation plan of the KPA Front Command to launch retaliatory strike and counterattack on the whole length of the front all at once. It also approved the decision of the KPA General Staff in which it sent an ultimatum to the south Korean puppet Ministry of Defense.
Supreme leader Kim Jong Un issued an order of the supreme commander of the Korean People's Army that the frontline large combined units of the KPA should enter a wartime state to be fully battle ready to launch surprise operations and the area along the front be put in a semi-war state from 17:00 on Friday.
The situation which has reached the brink of war is now hardly controllable.
We have exercised our self-restraint for decades.
Now no one's talk about self-restraint is helpful to putting the situation under control.

The army and people of the DPRK are poised not to just counteract or make any retaliation but not to rule out an all-out war to protect the social system, their own choice, at the risk of their lives.

CANCELLATION OF THE JOINT DRILL TO TEST US INTENTION



A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry Institute of American Studies warned on August 21 that the US-south Korea joint military exercises have gone too far with their aggressive nature getting more obvious. “The joint military exercises are staged on the DPRK’s doorstep, not in the US, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean or in any other places that do not pose threat to the DPRK, which is the dangerousness of the joint military exercises quite different from other normal military drills,” he said. Given that the troops of 11 nations put together which are participating in the NATO’s current “rapid response 15” joint military exercises in Europe—billed as the largest ever since the Cold War—number less than 5 000, the US-south Korea joint drill that involves over 30 000 US troops and more than 50 000 south Korean personnel shows how much risky it is in terms of scale, he said. Describing the US argument that it cannot cancel the joint drill as it has been staged for more than 40 years as a poor excuse, he pointed out that the US skipped the “Team Spirit” according to the 1992 DPRK-US agreement and the year witnessed progress in maintaining peace on the Korean peninsula with the north and the south concluding a non-aggression agreement and signing a joint declaration on denuclearization. In the late 1960s, when the joint drill was staged for the first time, the US claimed that it was aimed at training commitment of US troops in light of a contingency on the Korean peninsula, but the drill has turned extremely provocative and aggressive by aiming to remove the DPRK’s leadership and occupy Pyongyang, he noted, adding that even the US president recently clamoured for the breakdown of the DPRK’s social system. Page 2 of 2 “The reality makes us stay more alert to the aggressive and risky joint drill and tolerate it no longer. “The cancellation of the joint drill, a stark revelation of the US hostile approach to the DPRK, will become a yardstick to test whether the US intends to settle the Korean peninsula issue peacefully or not,” he stressed.

Pyongyang Means What It Says


A hair-trigger situation has been created on the Korean peninsula, which could lead to an outbreak of war at any moment.
On August 4 a mine exploded for some unknown reason near an MP post in the south of the Demilitarized Zone along the Military Demarcation Line, which divides the peninsula into north and south. The south Korean authorities, in collusion with the United States, lost no time in clamouring about the north’s involvement in the incident, claiming that the soldiers from the north had trespassed on their territory to lay the mine. Then they ordered the anti-north broadcasting for psychological warfare to be resumed throughout the frontline.
It is remindful of the raid on the broadcasting station at Gorlitz 76 years previously, when Hitler started the Second World War by declaring to the world that the Polish army had intruded into the German territory and committed a “provocation.”
Psychological warfare is in effect an act of war.
Pyongyang did not tolerate it. The General Staff of the Korean People’s Army issued a 48- hour ultimatum on August 20 that if the south Korean defence ministry does not stop the resumed anti-north propaganda and withdraw all the means of psychological warfare, it will immediately launch tough military actions.
Notwithstanding this, the south Korean defence ministry fabricated another incident on the afternoon of August 20. The south Korean army fired 36 rounds of artillery shells on the posts of the KPA on the absurd pretext that the KPA fired one southward. The outrage it perpetrated without identifying the source of firing, point of impact of the fired shell and its type, when viewed by people with reason, was indeed hysteric. It seems that Pyongyang is determined to punish the provokers severely, the way a man controls a mad dog with a stick. To cope with the grave situation, the Central Military Commission of the Workers’ Party of Korea convened an emergency enlarged meeting on the night of August 20.
The meeting listened to the report from the General Bureau of Reconnaissance of the KPA General Staff on the circumstances and truth of the military provocations that occurred on the afternoon of August 20 on the mid-western sector of the front as well as the overall enemy movements. It discussed political and military countermeasures to frustrate the enemy’s war moves.
It examined and ratified the KPA Front Command’s offensive operational plan, which is designed to launch an immediate counterstrike and counteroffensive across the front in times of emergency. Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un of the KPA ordered the large combined units on the front to get into a war state at 17:00 on August 21, armed so fully that they could start operations at any moment, and declared a semi-war state in the frontline areas. Commanding officers, who will command the local military operations to destroy the enemy’s means of psychological warfare if he does not stop the broadcasting for the smear campaign in 48 hours and to put down the enemy’s possible reactions, were appointed and dispatched to the front without delay.
Pyongyang has never pardoned provokers. The Pueblo, a US armed spy ship which had been intruding into the territorial waters of other countries experiencing no trouble, was captured in January 1968 as soon as it had intruded into the territorial waters of north Korea. The United States clamoured about “retaliation” for this, and Pyongyang offered a resolute response, saying it would answer the US “retaliation” with its own retaliation and the US “all-out war” with its own all-out war. Disheartened, the United States could not but submit a written apology, the first of its kind in the US history. The north Korean soldiers mercilessly shot down the US large spy plane EC-121 in April 1969, when it had intruded into the territorial airspace of their country.
In August 1976, they killed at a stroke some US officers who had been pouncing upon them wielding axes at Panmunjom situated along the Military Demarcation Line. In December 1994, they shot down at a single shot a US helicopter when it had intruded into the territorial airspace of north Korea.
In November 2010, when the south Korean military, egged on by the United States, committed such a provocative act as firing shells towards the territorial waters of north Korea, north Korean guns turned Yonphyong Island, the base of the provokers, into a lake of fire. North Korea, already possessed of invincible armed forces, has now a nuclear deterrent so as to tame the United States which is behaving arrogantly on this planet wielding nuclear weapons. Everyone should know that north Korea values its sovereignty and self-respect most and has the will and capability to punish and annihilate without mercy those who dare provoke it, wherever they may be on this planet.

The south Korean authorities, which persist in provoking north Korea, and the United States, which eggs them on, would be well advised not to behave rashly. Pyongyang has already warned that only death is waiting for the provokers. Pyongyang means what it says

WHO IS THE PROVOKER?


The suspicious “land mine explosion” in the western Demilitarized Zone along the Military Demarcation Line that bisects the Korean peninsula has created a touch-and-go situation in the peninsula.
On August 4 this year, a land mine exploded near an MP post in the south of the Demilitarized Zone. South Korea, in its report on “joint investigation” shared with the United States, insisted that it was an “intentional attack” by means of a land mine the north Korean soldiers had laid after trespassing on its territory. As soon as the report was made public, US soldiers with UN helmets on their heads appeared on the Military Demarcation Line at Panmumjom, and megaphoned that it was a “violation of the Korean Armistice Agreement,” and a “serious challenge to the south-north agreement on nonaggression.” They thus revealed by themselves that the “land mine explosion” was a plot the south Korean authorities concocted in collusion with the United States.
As a matter of fact, various types of land mines, including those made in the former Soviet Union, China and the United States, have been buried in a disorderly fashion in the Demilitarized Zone. It is a stark reality that many of them are washed away in rainy season and explode whenever a fire breaks out.
This notwithstanding, on the excuse of this incident, the broadcasting for smear campaign against north Korea resumed by the south Korean military authorities along the whole front is continuing day and night; to make the matter worse, conservative organizations have been enlisted for leaflet scattering against north Korea.
Leaflet scattering is now expanding to the whole area along the Military Demarcation Line. Leaflet scattering, an open provocation for war, is the most naked act of psychological warfare, which is, in essence, an act of aggressive war against north Korea.
In relation to this, on August 20 the General Staff of the Korean People’s Army sent an ultimatum to the south Korean Defense Ministry to stop the resumed anti-north broadcasting and withdraw all the means of psychological warfare or else it would immediately launch a powerful military action.
Unheedful of this warning, the south Korean military authorities fabricated another incident, this time “firing of a shell by the north,” and on August 20 provoked the north on the Midwestern section of the front by firing dozens of artillery shells northward on the absurd pretext that the KPA fired one southward.
The gravity of the prevailing situation lies in that the south Korean military authorities perpetrated the provocation without identifying the source of firing and the point of impact of the fired shell that should have been found out on their own territory and without ascertaining whether it was an anti-aircraft shell, a rifle shot or a rocket.
In retrospect, whenever an accident happened, the south Korean authorities provoked the north as a habit. There are numerous examples to illustrate this. They attributed the sinking of a corvette to the north’s torpedo attack and branded an unidentifiable drone far overhead as the one flying from the north. They even asserted that a door of the WC was a residue of the north’s drone and a broken vacuum flask, a fragment of a rocket fired from the north’s multiple launch rocket system. They went so far as to call the north’s peaceful artificial satellites long-range missiles, with a sinister aim of swaying public opinion. As is widely known, having aggravated the inter-Korean relations on the groundless excuse of “land mine explosion” and “firing of a shell,” the US and the south Korean authorities are staging joint military exercises on an extensive scale driving the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of war.
To cope with this critical situation, the Central Military Commission of the Workers’ Party of Korea convened an emergency enlarged meeting. The meeting checked the frontline large combined units’ combat preparedness and discussed political and military countermeasures to frustrate the enemy’s war moves. It also examined and ratified the KPA Front Command’s offensive operational plan, which is designed to launch an immediate counter strike and counteroffensive across the front in times of emergency. Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un of the KPA ordered the large combined units on the front to get into a war state at 17:00 on August 21, armed so fully that they could start operations at any moment, and declared a semi-war state in the frontline areas.
Now the army and people in north Korea are fully determined to deal a merciless, annihilating blow at the provokers.

The south Korean authorities should act with prudence, and they are well advised to think how their hysteric outrage will end up. 

FM: DPRK Ready for Full-Scale War


“We have exercised restraint as much as we can for decades, and any calls for restraint at present are no help to control the situation,” the DPRK Foreign Ministry said in a statement on August 21. It added that the DPRK army and people are even ready for a full-scale war, not a simple countermeasure or retaliation, to safeguard their social system at the cost of their lives.
The statement came after the south Korean military fired dozens of shells at the DPRK’s territory.
The military provocation following a series of self-orchestrated incidents is not accidental but closely calculated, it said.
The Park Geun Hye clique is mired in a crisis over unpopular governance, worsened inter-Korean relations caused by extreme anti-reunification approach and confrontational racket, vicious cycle of tension and escalation, THAAD deployment and diplomatic issues, it noted.
The recent incident is a blatant provocation which stemmed from a reckless scheme to find a way out of the crisis and disturb the other’s festival, it said.
Referring to the resolute measures taken by the DPRK, it said the touch-and-go situation cannot be turned back any more.

“We are closely following the shadow of the US cast behind south Korea’s shelling, and if the combat escalates we are fully poised to react to any slightest provocation by US aggressors,” it stressed.
SPOKESMAN FOR DPRK NDC WARNS ABE GROUP NOT TO RUN WILD FOR REVIVAL OF MILITARISM
A spokesman for the National Defence Commission of the DPRK on August 19 released a statement as regards the “statement to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII” made by Japanese Prime Minister Abe on August 14.
Abe’s “statement” on the 70th anniversary of the Japanese imperialists’ defeat in the war should have been full of deep remorse and heartfelt apology for the bloody crime-woven past which inflicted tremendous damage and sufferings on the Korean and other Asian peoples, the statement said, and went on: No sooner had Abe’s “statement” been published than it aroused hatred and resentment of public at home and abroad. Abe’s “statement” is a blatant challenge to the sovereignty and dignity of the DPRK, international justice and conscience of mankind as it concealed, curtailed and avoided the crimes from the beginning to the last.
Abe is a typical example of modern samurais who carried forward craftiness and belligerency and is accustomed to ultra-right reactionary idea as he is running the whole gamut of gimmick to bury the unprecedented hair-raising crimes into the oblivion of history. Looking back on the past, what Abe buckled down to right after he became the driver of a militarist chariot running headlong into the road of reinvasion was to revise the constitution in order to totally deny the legal position of Japan as a war criminal state and defeated state which is unable to make any military threat or use and have army after the Second World War.

The army and people of the DPRK will certainly and unconditionally force the Japanese reactionaries, the sworn enemy, to pay thousand-fold price generation after generation. If Abe does not want to face nightmare-like tragedy on this planet, he should bring his knees before the Korean people and mankind, unconditionally apologize for the unheard-of crimes and make honest reparation for them, showing his will in practice to prevent Japan from repeating the crime-woven past. This is the best way for saving Japan from running fast to ruin.

Kim Jong Un Gives Field Guidance to Farm No. 1116 under KPA Unit

Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA) Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, gave field guidance to the Farm No. 1116 under KPA Unit 810.
He said that he came here, very pleased to be told about grass for fodder the farm is cultivating on an experimental basis.
He was very satisfied to see for a long while the grass to be used as fodder growing tall in the field.
It is laudable that the farm succeeded in cultivating nutritious and high-yielding grass on an experimental basis, he noted, naming it "Aegukpul".
He learned in detail about the nutritional feature of the grass and method of its cultivation.
The grass is good for feeding cattle, goats, sheep, rabbits, geese, pigs and other livestock and it can be used as substrate for cultivating mushroom as it contains a lot of crude protein and a sufficient amount of various kinds of microelements, he stressed.
In order to raise grass-eating animals in a big way it is necessary to create grassland under a long-term plan and, at the same time, widely cultivate high-yielding grass, he said, underscoring the need to wage a dynamic drive to widely propagate "Aegukpul" across the country.
He looked at bean crops and high-yielding corn species now under cultivation at the farm on an experimental basis.
The farm is a model, standard bearer and vanguard in carrying out the party's policy for bringing about a radical turn in seed improvement, he noted, adding that it shows eye-opening successes whenever he visits it after hearing exciting news and the longer he goes round the farm, the dearer it looks.
He underlined the need to let leading officials of the Party Central Committee, ministries, national institutions and provinces, cities and counties visit this farm so that they may clearly learn how they should implement the party's policy for bringing about a radical turn in seed improvement.
He expressed expectation and belief that officials, party members and working people of the farm would creditably perform their honorable mission and duty, bearing deep in mind their pride and honor of working on the experimental farm of the Party Central Committee and thus always take the lead in the drive for decisively settling the people's food problem.

SONGUN-BASED LEADERSHIP AND KOREA’S LIBERATION



On August 15, 1945, the Korean nation was freed from the bitter fate of colonial slaves of the Japanese imperialists. Kim Il Sung (1912-1994), the father of socialist Korea, achieved the historic cause of national liberation by dint of Songun-based leadership.
Kim Il Sung provided a powerful ideological and theoretical banner for achieving the cause of national liberation by creating the Juche idea and Songun idea.
He set out on the road of revolutionary struggle to liberate his country in his early teens, and in June 1930 put forward the line of the anti-Japanese armed struggle based on the principles of the Juche idea and Songun idea, at a meeting of Korean revolutionaries held at Kalun in Northeast China.
It was a correct line that scientifically analyzed the nature of imperialism and reflected accurately the realities of Korea and many other colonial countries across the world in those days.
Owing to the aggressive and predatory nature of imperialism, it never withdraws of its own accord from the colonies but mainly resorts to violence to maintain its colonial rule. Therefore, the peoples of colonies, only when they take arms in their hands, can become the masters of their destinies free from the lot of slaves, and carve them out independently and creatively.
It was a historical review of the anti-Japanese struggle in Korea at that time. The Korean people, who found themselves at the crossroads of life and death, rose up to fight against the cruel colonial rule by the Japanese imperialists. People from all walks of life waged constantly mass struggles against the Japanese imperialists across the country, but met with many a setback under the barbarous repression by Japanese armed forces. Bourgeois nationalists of Korea dreamed of gaining independence of the country by making compromise with Japanese imperialism or seeking help from great powers. Their naïve dreams were impossible. They were too ignorant of the imperialist nature.
Kim Il Sung put forward a line of liberating Korea neither by relying on outside forces nor by peaceful means, but by Koreans own efforts and by waging armed struggle on the basis of the Juche idea and Songun idea. Since then the national liberation struggle of Korea could be firmly put on the scientific and correct road.
Kim Il Sung achieved the countrys independence by preparing the powerful forces of Songun revolution and vigorously exercising Songun-based leadership.
On April 25, 1932, he founded the Anti-Japanese Peoples Guerrilla Army, the predecessor of the Korean Peoples Army. It was a significant event that marked the birth of the main force of the Korean revolution, the core force of the Songun revolution, and the beginning of his Songun-based leadership.
In the course of expanding and strengthening the AJPGA he developed it into the Korean Peoples Revolutionary Army and built it up as an invincible military ranks through the fierce battles against the Japanese army. The KPRA, under his command, dealt heavy blows to the Japanese army in the battles of Pochonbo, Jiansanfeng, Hongtoushan and many others with unique strategy and tactics.
While strengthening the KPRA, he rallied the broad masses around it to further expand the forces of the Songun revolution. He founded in May 1936 the Association for the Restoration of the Fatherland, an anti-Japanese national united front organization, in order to firmly unite the masses of all strata on the basis of the worker-peasant alliance and mobilize their unfathomable strength for achieving the cause of national liberation. After the founding of the ARF, all the patriotic, anti-Japanese forces of Korea could rally firmly as one under the banner of national liberation and further strengthen the struggle.
He paid special attention to achieving army-people unity in the whole course of the anti-Japanese armed struggle, thus consolidating the force of the Songun revolution as firm as a rock. In those days he put forth an aphorism, As fish cannot live without water, so guerrillas cannot live without the people. The KPRA fighters protected the lives and properties of the people at the cost of their lives, true to his intention, and the people aided the KPRA with all sincerity. It constituted one of important factors that made the KPRA, without state backing and assistance from a regular army, always throw the powerful Japanese imperialists on the defensive whenever they fought battles.
Relying on the reliable forces, he organized the final operations for liberating the country. Under his order issued on August 9, 1945, to start general offensive, the KPRA launched the operations for final campaign against the enemy and the people in the homeland joined in them, with arms in hands, harassing the Japanese army in the rear. At last the Japanese imperialists were defeated and the Korean people achieved their countrys liberation on August 15, 1945.

The achievements President Kim Il Sung accomplished in liberating Korea with the Songun-based leadership will shine forever in the history of the anti-imperialist national liberation struggle of the world. 

KIM JONG UN PROVIDES FIELD GUIDANCE TO NEWLY-BUILT PYONGYANG HOME FOR AGED


Supreme leader Kim Jong Un gave field guidance to the newly-built Pyongyang Home for the Aged.
Going round different places of the home, he learned in detail about its construction and preparations for its operation.
He said that the home was successfully built to suit national character and flavor, adding that, the longer one watches, the more fashionable it looks and every aspect of the structure was constructed to meet the requirements of physical bodies, ages and mentality of its health-seekers.
Heated floor rooms and bedrooms were built to cater to the taste of health-seekers, dining rooms were constructed to create homelike atmosphere and stairs were designed in such a way as not to give any inconvenience to old people when moving in line with the instruction given by me when visiting the construction site last time, he noted.
He said that service and healthcare establishments including barbers, beauty parlor, bath and treatment rooms look impeccable and library, sporting room and amusement hall were also successfully built for the cultural and emotional life and physical training of health-seekers.
An air-conditioning system by use of geothermal is introduced into the home to smoothly settle the issue of regulating temperature and outdoor resting place was arranged well and greening of its environment done very well, he said, adding he was very pleased with everything.
The appearance of Pyongyang Home for the Aged along with Pyongyang Baby Home and Orphanage in a good place has turned this area into a district which vividly shows President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il's love for the people, he noted.
He said with emotion that the completion of the home for the aged made it possible to realize another lifetime desire of the great leaders.
The aged persons will be very pleased to come to the new home, he said, instructing officials to hold a ceremony for completing the home for the aged and let them settle there as soon as possible as they are looking forward to the day of moving to it.
He expressed expectation and belief that the solider-builders who had successfully completed Pyongyang Home for the Aged as intended by the Party Central Committee would perform greater miracles and feats in the new worksites for building a rich and powerful country entrusted to them by the party.

He was accompanied by O Su Yong, Kim Ki Nam, Ri Jae Il and Kim Yo Jong.

KIM JONG UN ENJOYS ART PERFORMANCE OF STATE MERITED CHORUS


Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, together with service personnel of the KPA enjoyed an art performance given by the State Merited Chorus to mark the 62nd anniversary of the victory in the great Fatherland Liberation War.
Kim Jong Un appeared at the auditorium with Ri Sol Ju.
In the performance which started with serial songs "July 27, Our Victory Day", its performers sang high praises of the exploits of the great Generalissimo Kim Il Sung, who aroused with his indomitable pluck and matchless guts the army and people of the DPRK to a nation-wide resistance for defending the country from huge aggressor forces' invasion and wiping out the enemy and created the myth of heroic Korea's war victory with his Juche-based military idea, superb strategies and tactics and distinguished leadership ability, thus honorably defending the freedom and independence of the country.
Through presentation of wartime songs, they lauded the spirit of the participants in the war who bravely fought for the freedom and independence of the country, united close around the great leader and the great Workers' Party of Korea.
The numbers of the performance included male choruses "Ode to General Kim Jong Un" and "Parade of Glory".
Appreciating the successful performance, Kim Jong Un expressed expectation and belief that the creators and artistes of the State Merited Chorus would as ever conduct their revolutionary and militant art activities to more inspiringly encourage the service personnel and civilians of the DPRK in the showdown with the U.S. and the all-out struggle for the victory in building a thriving nation.

Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un guided the "2015 combat aeronautics contest of air commanding officers of the Air and Anti-Air Force of the Korean People's Army" which was held with splendor at the Kalma Airport, which has been rebuilt on an expansion basis, to mark the 62nd anniversary of the victory in the great Fatherland Liberation War.

KOREAN REVEREND IN CANADA CONFESSES TO SUBVERSIVE PLOTS AGAINST DPRK
Rim Hyon Su, Korean reverend in Canada, was interviewed at the People's Palace of Culture on Thursday.
Rev. Rim was accused of making subversive plots and activities against the DPRK. Present there were officials concerned, Korean media persons and those of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan, foreign correspondents, staff members of diplomatic missions here and overseas Koreans staying in the socialist homeland.
The DPRK's relevant organ arrested Rim who acted as a servant of the U.S. imperialists and south Korean puppet group. He malignantly hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership and social system of the DPRK and resorted to subversive plots and activities in a sinister bid to build a religious state in the DPRK while frequenting it under the guise of "humanitarian aid" and "free donation" over the past 18 years.
He confessed to all his crimes in the course of the investigation by the competent organ. He spoke first at the press conference. He said that he illegally entered Pyongyang via Rason City in violation of the DPRK's emergency measure to prevent the spread of Ebola in last February.
He is, therefore, under legal investigation by the DPRK's relevant organ as his hostile acts against the DPRK overseas were brought to light in the course of investigation, he noted. He went on: I have so far malignantly defamed the dignity and social system of the DPRK, pursuant to the scenario of the U.S. and the south Korean regime, visiting the DPRK under the signboard of "humanitarian aid", "free donation" and "cooperation". Not content with this, I attempted to bring down the DPRK I delivered a "report on what is going on in north Korea" before tens of thousands of south Koreans and overseas Koreans at sermon on Sundays at my church and during preaching tours of  more than 20 countries including Canada, the U.S., south Korea, Japan and Brazil. Each time I malignantly slandered the dignity and social system of the DPRK.
At various kinds of religious meetings including Kimnet, a group of leaders of overseas compatriot church and missionary organization in North America, and the world's south Koreans missionary meeting, I made preachment and gave lectures that "north Korea should be collapsed with the love of 'God'", fanning up hostility toward the DPRK. I persistently conducted anti-DPRK missionary activities in a bid to collapse the worship for the leader kept in the hearts of the people in the DPRK and disintegrate and destroy it from within.
I made sure that food jutes "donated" to different parts of the DPRK were intentionally drawn the Cross and used to send them written on church name and bible phrases and clauses. I went round different parts of the DPRK in the name of "aid" in a bid to overturn its social system by taking advantage of the hostile policy against it sought by the U.S. and the south Korean authorities and set up a base for building a religious state. I fanned up distrust and hostility toward the DPRK among churchmen and the society of compatriots with fabrication and false propaganda.
I sent despicable photos I took in the DPRK in a secret way to my son. I made sure that my son made opposition literature including video titled "North's reality", and briefed on the fact before churchmen and posted it on his website. I secretly photographed the old bible and hymns of So Kye Ok, Korean living in the U.S., in around 2007 and committed such fraud that I collected them from people of the DPRK believing in religion. I took active part in the operations of the U.S. and the south Korean authorities to lure and abduct DPRK citizens and in their programs for "aiding defectors from the north." When meeting the U.S. ambassador to Mongolia in 1996 I discussed the issue of helping over 500 "defectors from the north" go to south Korea via Mongolia every year. I received a GPS marking an area of the boarder of Inner Mongolia, China from Dennis Kim, south Korean in the U.S., involved in alluring "defectors from the north", and handed it to a "Korean broker defected from the north" at Beijing Airport. I made outlay for supporting "defectors from the north" from the church budget for two years since 1996 and dispatched Canadian believer Jon Jong Sok to Yanji and Tumen areas in Jilin Province of China to allure DPRK citizens to "defecting." Rim Hyon Su honestly admitted all crimes perpetrated by him were aimed to overthrow the state. Page 3 of 3 He answered questions raised by reporters. He referred to how he was checked and arrested by a law enforcement organ of the DPRK and laid bare the vicious and hypocritical nature of the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces' moves against the DPRK. According to him, the U.S. and south Korean authorities are hurling not only politicians but all tricksters, media and websites into noisy propaganda about the "nuclear issue of the north" and the "human rights issue of the north". They are terming the DPRK a "country proliferating WMDs", "country suspected of money laundering" and "country manufacturing biological weapons". The "report of the UN Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in the North" through which the U.S., the south Korean authorities and the West are vociferating about the "human rights issue of the north" was cooked up on the basis of false testimonies made by such human scum as Sin Tong Hyok who fled after committing crimes in the north. They bribed "experts" on Korean issues and egged them on to let loose a spate of invectives against the DPRK. The U.S. and its allied countries and south Korean authorities are strictly barring goods for civilians, even a gram of food and fertilizers from being exported to the DPRK.

He exposed church organizations and persons engrossed in false propaganda and conspiratorial activities against the DPRK, pursuant to the policies of the U.S. and south Korean puppet forces. He deeply repented of his wrongdoings, adding he committed crimes against the DPRK, prompted by his wrong understanding of it.
FM SPOKESMAN DENOUNCES US FOR TAKING ISSUE WITH DPRK OVER FLESH TRAFFIC
A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK on July 29 gave the following answer to the question raised by KCNA as regards the fact that the US recently took issue with the DPRK over flesh traffic:
The US Department of State in its 2015 report on flesh traffic on July 27 slandered the DPRK, referring to the flesh traffic in different countries. It termed the DPRK “a source of flesh traffic,” asserting that many of trespassers are sold off to flesh traffickers of other countries and it has made no effort to prevent the practice. The report went the lengths of citing misinformation about forced labour and concentration camps in a sinister bid to malignantly slander the dignified DPRK as it did in the past. The US, the worst abuser of human rights and biggest flesh trafficker in the world, shamelessly talked rubbish over the “human rights issue” in the DPRK as if it were “a human rights judge”. This is just like a guilty party filing the suit first and a vivid expression of its hostile policy towards the DPRK.
The US has got corpulent through hundreds of years-long slave trade as it was founded as a result of genocide. It is vociferating about any “flesh traffic,” telling sheer lies, but no one would pay heed to them. The US is cooking up a flurry of such false documents as it found it hard to bring down the DPRK by force. This is a revelation of its cynical ploy to internationally isolate the DPRK by such poor method of hurling mud at its social system and a carefully worked out scenario to realize the ambition for bringing down the system at any cost.

It is an unbearable insult and mockery of the DPRK that the US is trumpeting about any “flesh traffic” which can never exist under the former’s socialist system whereby the people are fully exercising the independent right as the masters of the country and realizing their beautiful dreams and ideals. The undisguised hostile intention of the US to bring down the social system of the DPRK will only further harden the will of its service personnel and people to defend the socialist system, their cradle, firmly adhering to Songun politics and the line of simultaneously developing the two fronts as the treasured swords.
FM SPOKESMAN URGES US TO SHOW ITS SINCERE “WILL FOR DIALOGUE
A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK on July 29 gave the following answer to the question raised by KCNA as regards the fact that the US is working hard to shift the blame for the stalled dialogue over the nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula on to the DPRK at any cost:

Visiting south Korea and its surrounding countries from July 25, the special envoy for the six party talks of the US State of Department is misleading the public opinion to give an impression that the dialogue has not been resumed due to the DPRK, asserting that the US is keeping the door of dialogue open but the DPRK is reluctant to come out for dialogue and if the DPRK makes a decision to go other way, the US would flexibly react to it. As can be judged by anyone with reason, the escalated tension without dialogue persists on the Korean peninsula due to the US hostile policy towards the DPRK, the ceaseless joint military maneuvers for aggression, its military expression, in particular. If the US, not the DPRK, stops such hostile acts as joint military maneuvers and makes a decision to go other way, it will be possible to resume dialogue and settle many issues. It is the height of shamelessness and hypocrisy that the US is trumpeting about “will for dialogue” and “flexibility” while resorting to military maneuvers ceaselessly. This is nothing but a petty trick to shift the blame for the stalled dialogue on to the DPRK in a bid to tide over the crisis when the public in the US is becoming increasingly vocal blaming the Obama administration’s failed policy toward the DPRK. The evil cycle of tension will persist and dialogue will not be held before the US shows its much touted sincere “will for dialogue” by stopping the joint military maneuvers.

FM SPOKESMAN SLAMS U.S. FOR DELIBERATELY LINKING NEGOTIATIONS WITH IRAN OVER NUCLEAR ISSUE WITH DPRK

A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK Tuesday gave the following answer to the question put by KCNA as regards the fact that the U.S. is deliberately linking the conclusion of the agreement on the nuclear issue of Iran with the DPRK:
The U.S. is talking this and that over the nuclear issue of the DPRK in the wake of the conclusion of the agreement on the nuclear issue of Iran. A spokesperson of the U.S. Department of State said on July 14 that "Washington is ready for dialogue with Pyongyang if discussion is made on the nuclear issue of North Korea and it helps put it on a concrete and full-fledge stage of nuclear disarmament."
A U.S. under secretary of State uttered on July 16 that it was his hope that the conclusion of the agreement with Iran would help the DPRK rethink of its nuclear issue.
Iran's nuclear agreement is the achievement made by its protracted efforts to have its independent right to nuclear activities recognized and sanctions lifted. But the situation of the DPRK is quite different from it. The DPRK is the nuclear weapons state both in name and reality and it has interests as a nuclear weapons state. The DPRK is not interested at all in the dialogue to discuss the issue of making it freeze or dismantle its nukes unilaterally first.
The nuclear deterrence of the DPRK is not a plaything to be put on the negotiating table as it is the essential means to protect its sovereignty and vital rights from the U.S. nuclear threat and hostile policy which have lasted for more than half a century.
It is illogical to compare Iran's nuclear agreement with the situation of the DPRK which is exposed to constant provocative military hostile acts and the biggest nuclear threat of the U.S. including its ceaseless large-scale joint military exercises.
The DPRK remains unchanged in the mission of its nuclear force as long as the U.S. continues pursuing its hostile policy toward the former.
