KCNA Commentary Condemns Park Geun Hye Regime's Obstructions to Joint Conference for Reunification

Pyongyang, August 11 (KCNA) -- All Koreans and the international community are closely following the developments on the Korean peninsula since the DPRK proposed a great national conference for reunification to mark the 71st anniversary of Korea's liberation.
How to approach the proposal for convening a joint conference of all political parties, organizations and individual personages in the north, the south and abroad represents the stand on the crucial proposal to repair the north-south relations facing the worst crisis by the concerted efforts of the nation and make a breakthrough in the drive for achieving national reunification.
It also serves as a touchstone to distinguish the pro-reunification forces from the anti-reunification forces. That's why all Koreans at home and abroad and the international community expressed positive support and response to the proposal and have made efforts to make it successful. It is only the ruling forces of south Korea that are swimming against this trend.
The Park Geun Hye regime has flatly turned down the proposal, describing it as a "strategy for the united front" and "bogus peace offensive." It has got desperate in blocking the activities of people of various circles in south Korea including the South Headquarters of the Pan-National Alliance for Korea's Reunification.
Due to the vicious obstructions of the puppet regime, the preparatory work for the joint conference has faced serious difficulties and the formation of the pan-national joint preparatory committee has been delayed.
This clearly proves that the puppet regime is working hard to chill the desire of the fellow countrymen to the last by pursuing the wild ambition for "unification of social systems" and "unification through absorption."
As known to everybody, the proposal of the DPRK was prompted by its single patriotic desire to defuse the decades-long north-south confrontation and antagonism, distrust and hostility and to write a new history of independent reunification by joining hands with each other and through bold practice.
There is no reason for any member of the nation to refuse to respond to it. It is unjustifiable anti-national and anti-reunification act for the puppet regime to turn down the just proposal of the DPRK and obstruct the preparations of political parties, organizations and individual personages in south Korea for opening the joint conference Not content with making the June 15 national joint event abortive, the Park regime is getting desperate in its moves to disturb the preparations for the joint conference.
The regime is, indeed, a group of traitors who are utterly indifferent to the interests of the nation. The Park group, seized with sycophancy towards the U.S. and the wild ambition for achieving "unification through absorption," is ceaselessly introducing nuclear war hardware including THAAD into south Korea, rendering the situation extremely tense, and desperately resorting to risky moves to do harm to the lives and security of all Koreans, playing the role of a shock brigade of the U.S. in carrying out its strategy for dominating Asia-Pacific.
If the group persistently toes the U.S. policy and escalates the confrontation with the compatriots in the north in disregard of the strong desire of all Koreans for reunification, it will never be able to escape isolation, ruin and stern punishment by history.

No force on earth can ever check the dynamic advance of all Koreans to achieve independent reunification by rejecting outside forces and pooling their efforts. The great national conference for reunification is sure to open.

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.

KCNA Assails U.S. and Western Countries' Interference in Other Countries' Internal Affairs

Pyongyang, August 6 (KCNA)
The U.S. and Japan are leaving no means untried to tarnish the image of the DPRK, asserting that it "does not guarantee the rights of its workers" abroad. Shortly ago, a spokesperson for East Asian and Pacific Affairs of the U.S. Department of State claimed that the "money earned by workers of the DPRK abroad finds its way to the government of north Korea and this is being used exclusively for its illegal nuclear and missile programs" and such problem will be reflected in the sanctions against the DPRK.
Pursuant to its master's scenario, Japan, too, is working hard to seek the adoption of a "resolution" on forcing the DPRK to halt the dispatch of its workers to other countries. It failed to include an item calling on foreign countries to prohibit the hiring of DPRK's workers in the UN Security Council "resolution" adopted in January.
In the wake of the adoption of another UNSC "resolution" in March it got in touch with individual countries which are hiring workers of the DPRK in a bid to halt the hiring. This is a reckless behavior of those hell-bent on pursuing a hostile policy toward the DPRK. It has become common practice for countries to have exchange not only in funds and technology but also in manpower in their economic relations and so nobody can find fault with this.
The DPRK's workers dispatched to foreign countries on the voluntary principle according to the legitimate contracts with them are striving to develop the economy of their country and boost the external economic exchange under working and living conditions as required by international law and the DPRK's law. The U.S. and Japan are peddling this normal economic exchange in the international arena, urging "relevant countries not to hire Korean workers" under the pretext of "human rights abuse."
This is a wanton interference in their internal affairs as it seriously infringes upon other countries' sovereignty in order to achieve their sinister goals. It is the U.S. and western countries that are now putting collective pressure upon those countries which maintain their unique system and political mode under the pretext of "human rights abuses" in quest of their unilateral interests irrelevant to human rights. Countries' sovereignty is being violated and their national development seriously retarded worldwide owing to the hostile forces' vicious interference and moves for aggression under the pretext of "protecting human rights."
The DPRK's working people abroad and their families are now expressing irrepressible resentment at the U.S., Japan and other hostile forces spreading the fiction about "abuse of the rights of its workers abroad" for the purpose of increasing the pressure upon the DPRK over the issue of "human rights".

The "human rights standard" based on the American-style outlook on value cannot be applied to the DPRK and it is absolutely unacceptable to use it for political purpose or as a precondition for exchange among countries and their development. It is necessary to heighten vigilance against the U.S. and other hostile forces to realize its wild ambition for hegemony through pressure and aggression while internationalizing the "human rights issue" of other countries.

Pyongyang, August 2 (KCNA) --The National Reunification Institute issued a white paper Tuesday dealing with the criticism of Park Geun Hye by media of various countries. According to the white paper, VOA, the Wall Street Journal, the AP, BBC, Financial Times, AFP and other major media organizations in the West, commenting on Park Geun Hye's running for the 18th-term puppet presidential election as a candidate from the "Saenuri Party", reported that "dictator's daughter runs for presidency" and "dictator's daughter runs for presidential election".
With the puppet presidential election at hand, foreign news media repeatedly warned that if Park Geun Hye, daughter of military dictator who ruled south Korea in the 1960s-1970s, grabbed power, "yusin" dictatorship could revive. When Park took the "presidency", the AP, the Bloomberg, the Washington Post, the New York Times and other media reported that "Park Chung-Hee dictatorial regime ended with assassination, Park Geun Hye returns to Chongwadae in 30 odd years", "The longest ruling dictator's daughter wins presidential election" and "results beyond expectation", expressing strong repugnancy and concern.
After the "presidential election" it was disclosed that Park Geun Hye took office by manipulating media with the mobilization of the Intelligence Service. The New York Times, the Washington Post, Le Monde, AFP and scores of world's media were unanimous in revealing that "the Intelligence Service, the Cyber Command, etc. spread more than 24 million twitters for the Park Geun Hye's election", "in the final analysis secret agents of the Intelligence Service helped the daughter of the dictator win the election" and "Park Geun Hye won with difficulty the competition with a candidate from an opposition party who won 48% support because of such a secret operation".
When Park resorted to a reckless act of disclosing the minutes of the north-south summit, being much upset by the voices critical of the her group's illegal election rigging, the Washington Times, Reuters, Asahi Shimbun and other media commented that "the disclosure of the southnorth summit minutes, top-secret document, by the Park Geun Hye regime is a political and strategic attempt to divert elsewhere the attention of the public focused on its illegal election" and "the disclosure of the summit minutes is an illegal intervention in politics in violation of the commitment to the neutrality in politics".
When the Park group forcibly disbanded the United Progressive Party and cooked up Ri Sok Gi's attempted rebellion case and thus created an unprecedented terror-ridden atmosphere in south Korea, foreign media recalled that "Park Chung-Hee banned activities of political parties quite often in a bid to disband the National Assembly and political organizations and suppress opposition parties" and "Park Geun Hye's ruling mode bears striking resemblance to dictator Park Chung-Hee's".
The Park Geun Hye group's vicious crackdown on trade unions and media has become the target of censure and denunciation by the international community. The MERS incident that occurred last year as well as the ferry Sewol sinking case in 2014 were hideous disasters that greatly shocked the south Korean society. At that time Le Monde,
Spiegel and other major media detailed facts that Park Geun Hye's whereabouts were not known for seven hours at a critical moment for putting the accident under control, the puppet authorities defaulted on rescuing the victims by dragging on time, adding that "the ferry Sewol disaster was not just a simple accident but the biggest man-caused disaster" and that "Park Geun Hye's attempt at shifting the responsibility on to the captain of Sewol was aimed at toning down criticism of the regime".
The Washington Post, Kyodo and other foreign media derided Park by commenting that "MERS outbreak in south Korea is a worldwide problem", "MERS incident points to a critical [3] problem in the Park Geun Hye regime's ability of coping with crisis" and "a man-caused disaster attributable to the unripe and belated counteraction taken by the regime taking people's lives lightly".
Anti-Park Geun Hye and anti-"government" actions have been daily occurrences in south Korea ranging from the action for a probe into the truth behind illegal election in the early days of Park's office to actions against the privatization of railways and healthcare fields, the actions against opening of rice market, the actions against anti-north war exercises, the actions for a probe into the truth behind ferry Sewol disaster and general strike against retrogressive revision of the labor law.
Reporting these actions, foreign media denounced Park and her group for reducing south Korea to the world's worst hell, tundra of democracy and human rights and complete colony of the U.S. International criticism and derision of the evil woman of Chongwadae, matchless fascist dictator and murderer and bete noire, found their vivid manifestation during the puppet National Assembly election this April.
The recent Park group's decision on deploying THAAD in south Korea after yielding to the U.S. pressure has driven traitor Park to a tight corner in the face of strong rebuff by countries around the Korean peninsula. Not only media and experts in China, Russia and other neighboring countries but government authorities deplore the situation, saying that "retaliation is inevitable", "south Korea will be the first victim of strategic scramble for power" and "Park Geun Hye regime will be made to pay a dear price". Inside south Korea, such criticism as "Park Geun Hye regime was the first to get intercepted by THAAD deployment" and "miserable tragedy was brought about by humiliating diplomacy" is being heard.

The white paper said that all these facts are just a tip of iceberg of international criticism of traitor Park, stressing this clearly proves that Park Geun Hye is not only the worst trouble-maker of the nation but also root cause of misfortune common to humankind and dreg of history. Evil woman of Chongwadae exposed to curse and denunciation by all the fellow countrymen [4] and to derision and censure by the international community will only face a miserable ruin, concludes the white paper


Pyongyang, August 3 (KCNA) -- Park Geun Hye of south Korea, taking issue with the DPRK again at a "state council meeting" on Tuesday, blustered that "she was anxious about continued conflict over THAAD deployment as north's nuclear and missile threats are becoming a reality" and "political camp should pool efforts to prevent inner split and conflict wanted by the north."
She went as shameful as to laud her father and mother who met miserable ends, spouting such sickening remarks that it is her "least wish to have the security of the country and people protected." She also reeled off rubbish that she is "persuading" states of the world and "conducting close cooperation" with them to have "the north abandon nukes and missiles."
A spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country of the DPRK in a statement on Wednesday termed it a last-ditch effort to divert to the DPRK the accusation and denunciation focused on her by people from all walks of life in south Korea and the world for her moves for deploying THAAD, justify her thrice-cursed crimes and get rid of the pretty fix she is finding herself now at any cost.
Intolerable is Park's move to abuse the DPRK's nuclear deterrence for self-defense, the dignity and pride of the nation, for justifying her despicable pro-U.S. act of treachery, the statement said, and went on: Park should wag her tongue after clearly understanding that the DPRK had not had an access to the self-defensive nukes and the latest strike means just to deal with the south Korean puppet group, which is no more than a colonial stooge of the U.S.
As it has repeatedly been declared, the real "enemy" the DPRK's nuclear force regards as its rival is a nuclear war itself, and its latest strategic strike means are targeting the U.S. and its followers keen on stifling the DPRK, not innocent compatriots, the Korean nation and the peaceful world.
The heinous crimes of the Park group can neither be covered up nor be pardoned as it is putting the security and peace of the south Korean people at stake, challenging the unanimous desire of the Korean nation and the international community for detente of the Korean peninsula, improved inter-Korean relations and independent reunification of Korea.
The people of all social strata in south Korea should clearly see through the true colours of the Park group bringing all disasters and misfortune as the days go by, and resolutely throw overboard the herd of pro-U.S. traitors before facing bigger misfortune.

Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, provided field guidance to the Chollima Building Materials Complex.
Enjoying a bird's-eye view of the complex with a vast area, he said that he visited the complex to turn it into a leading comprehensive building materials production base in which its production is more successfully put on a Juche and modern basis.
He looked round the room dedicated to the history of the complex.
He stressed that the officials and employees of the complex should live and work, bearing deep in mind the great pride and honor of working at the modern building materials production base built under the far-sighted plan of leader Kim Jong Il.
He went round various places including the iron sheet roofing materials shop, light steel structure shop, plastic building materials shop and products exhibition to learn in detail about the production and quality of products.
He praised the complex for turning out diverse products, saying that the complex produces not only plastic sash, aluminum sash, iron sheet roofing materials, heat-proof multiple sheet and plastic tubes of various forms, sizes and colors but also iron fence, wire net fence and varieties of blocks for diverse uses.
Noting the building materials being produced by the complex are impeccable in the light of not only technical indexes and aesthetic value, he said with satisfaction that it has become possible to apply formative art to structures at a higher level by using locally produced quality building materials.
Referring to the important duty the complex is performing, he advanced tasks facing it.
Noting it is the intention of the Party to turn the complex into an icon one capable of massively producing building materials conducive to improving the people's living standard, augmenting the national power and making the country look more beautiful and putting architecture on a high-level of formative art, he said he would personally solve all the problems arising in doing so.
Calling for successfully remodeling the complex as the one which will materialize the Party's policy on locally producing building materials with locally available resources and raw materials and indigenous technology and the profitable Juche-oriented one to be proud of before the world, he said to do so is the way of successfully cultivating and bringing into bloom the seeds sown by Kim Jong Il.
He had a photo session with the officials and employees of the complex.
He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Pak Yong Sik, O Su Yong, Jo Yong Won and Ma Won Chun.


Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, provided field guidance to the newly-built combined fishing-tackle factory under the KPA.
Enjoying a panoramic view of the factory, he said it looks nice as it has a high level of culture. He expressed great satisfaction over the fact that the KPA successfully built it in a grand style under a long-term plan.
Going round the room for the education in the revolutionary history and the room dedicated to the history of the factory, he stressed that the factory should minutely organize the ideological education for giving fullest play to its employees' mental power and dynamically wage a hot emulation and thus successfully operate the important post directly linked with the work for improving the diet of the service personnel and people, the armory-like establishment on the fishing front by achieving signal successes in production.
He went round the combined control room, sample room, net-production shop, rope-production shop, float production shop and others to learn in detail about the level of its technical equipment, production and quality of products.
As the factory is fully equipped with such equipment as modern net-weaver, winder and shaper, the level of its technical equipment and production capacity has been remarkably increased and a sea of machines has appeared, he noted.
He said he was pleased that the factory successfully put an integrated production system on a high scientific and IT basis by pooling efforts with scientists and technicians, the system whereby it can seek the most reasonable production method suited to the production environment, and installed modern machines of Korean style.
The factory has an important duty to perform, he noted, indicating the tasks facing it.
Noting that it became possible for the factory to massively produce and sufficiently supply varieties of fishing tackle not only to specialized fishery stations but also to sideline fishing boats of KPA sub-units stationed in coastal areas, he said with pleasure that the factory is an icon factory, a valuable asset and a big base for the generations to come as it can greatly contribute to developing the fishing industry of the country.
He had a photo taken with the officials and employees of the factory.

Accompanying him were Hwang Pyong So, Pak Yong Sik and So Hong Chan.


Pyongyang, July 28 (KCNA) -- After deciding to deploy THAAD in south Korea, the U.S. recently transferred a battery of PAC-3 to the base of U.S. imperialist aggressor forces in Kunsan, North Jolla Province of south Korea from the U.S. Air Force's Kadena base, Okinawa. Earlier, the U.S. decided to deploy on a permanent basis nuclear-powered submarine Mississippi and super-large nuclear-powered Ohio, which had entered Pusan Port, in the waters surrounding the Korean peninsula. The U.S. is blustering that it would additionally deploy improved PAC-3 MSE, whose maximum altitude is twice that of PAC-3 now deployed in the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces present in south Korea. A spokesman for the National Peace Committee of Korea (NPCK) said in a statement on Thursday: These are extremely dangerous military provocations as they further escalate the tension on the Korean peninsula and disturb the regional peace and security. To force the U.S. imperialist aggressor troops to pull out of south Korea is the basic way of foiling the U.S. frantic armed buildup for a nuclear war and preventing a nuclear war disaster on the peninsula. The U.S. troops in south Korea are like a time bomb planted in the powder keg for a nuclear war and the withdrawal of the U.S. troops is the most urgent matter which brooks no further delay. The struggle to defuse the danger of a nuclear war on the peninsula and guarantee the regional peace and security should start from pulling the U.S. troops out of south Korea. [2] The DPRK, which joined the front rank of nuclear powers, is now fully ready to cope with all forms of wars to be ignited by the U.S. imperialists, and the U.S. troops in south Korea will be the primary target of our merciless deadly strike. The U.S. should properly face up to the strategic position of the DPRK and the trend of the times and behave itself and pull the aggressor forces and war equipment out of south Korea without delay. If the south Korean authorities sincerely hope for peace and reunification, they should roll back their despicable sycophantic pro-U.S. policy and make a resolute decision to withdraw the U.S. aggressor forces from south Korea, as unanimously demanded by all Koreans.


Pyongyang, July 27 (KCNA) -- The Park Geun Hye group of south Korea, being ignorant of where it is standing, is busy with hectic diplomacy over THAAD deployment only to draw derision and criticism of the public at home and abroad. As known, Northeast Asia is a very sensitive region where interests of world major powers are intermingled complicatedly. Attention of the world public has been focused on the region where a scramble for power among big powers is getting fierce. Specifically, the danger of a new fresh Cold War is looming on the Korean peninsula and in other parts of Northeast Asia and a nerve war and conflicts between the U.S. and big regional powers are festering in the wake of the recent decision of U.S. THAAD deployment in south Korea only to turn it into a frontline base of the U.S. for realizing its strategy for dominating Asia-Pacific and an advanced base for igniting a nuclear war. Against this backdrop, the Park group has gone so foolish as to get involved in the power scramble of the neighboring big powers, talking about "shuttle diplomacy" on "pro-north countries," only to remind one of a shrimp getting its back broken in a fight between whales. The south Korean regime has bluffed as if it would do something significant in Northeast Asia plagued with a hot scramble of power, going here and there with such petty diplomatic signboards as "plan for building new Eurasia", "idea of achieving peace in Northeast Asia" and "self-sacrificing diplomacy." Terming the DPRK's bolstering of military muscle with the nuclear deterrent as its pivot a "provocation" and "threat", the chief executive-led south Korean authorities have all turned out in conducting "diplomacy for soliciting pressure on the north" in league with outsiders. When the U.S. and other "allies" found it impossible to materialize their criminal purpose through "sanctions" only, the puppet regime recklessly opted for "intensive diplomacy to win over the countries friendly to the north or sympathizing with it through pressure." Chief Executive Park at a recent ASEM summit solicited international support for her policy of confrontation with the DPRK, calling for "leading the north to a right change", "execution of sanctions steps" and "international efforts for cooperation over north's nuclear issue." Traitor Park during her 20 odd foreign junkets desperately worked to solicit worldwide cooperation for escalating confrontation with the DPRK, loudly talking about "strategic partner" and "international cooperation". However, no one has regarded her group as partner for "diplomatic cooperation" but as colonial lackeys of the U.S. and a herd of rabid dogs desperate in biting the fellow countrymen. It is quite natural that the Park group of traitors and sycophants without an iota of national self-esteem has suffered shame and humiliation while going here and there like a hungry dog to hurt the compatriots. South Korea, which turned into a complete colony of the U.S. due to the Park group's treacherous policy of depending on outsiders, is reminiscent of Korea dating back to late 19th century to early 20th century when the country was ruined as a theatre of the scramble among big powers. The on-going diplomatic crisis facing the group is an inevitable lot of those who have prolonged their remaining days by treachery and reliance on outsiders without any correct political philosophy and sovereignty. The Park group is bound to meet final ruin for its acts of treachery.


Pyongyang, July 26 (KCNA) -- On July 12 the U.S. under secretary of Treasury officially admitted and opened to public the fact that international criminal bodies have concealed and laundered illegal funds through bogus companies operating in the U.S. The under secretary said that the results of tracking terrorist, drug-smuggling and computer hacking organizations overseas proved all the criminal bodies are closely linked with bogus companies in the U.S., adding bogus companies are appearing one after another and criminal organizations are making use of them as many states of the U.S. are allowing the establishment of anonymous companies hard to confirm the identities of their owners. The U.S. government organs, in particular, are overtly ensuring the activities of the bogus companies for concealing and laundering the funds, the under secretary said, deploring that U.S. Congress is refusing to adopt a bill on combating illegal dealing, being involved in bribe operations of backstage negotiators. This goes to prove that the U.S. is the arch criminal fostering the money-laundering of terrorist organizations and committing state-sponsored terrorism, threatening the international financial system. Illegal fund dealing serves as a chronic illness in the capitalist society of the U.S. where the competition for existence based on the jungle law is justified and all crimes are rife and it becomes a major lever for existence in the U.S. The U.S. criminal organizations are raking up a huge amount of illegal funds by use of diverse levers such as fraud and swindle, robbery, prostitution, drug and arms smuggling, flesh traffic and counterfeit security dealing. They are keeping U.S. economy afloat by investing them in it and laundering illegal money. Lurking behind many states' allowance of anonymous companies is the purpose of re energizing the illegal fund dealing and drastically increasing tax income through them. More than a million companies are registered in Delaware State with less than a million population as it is ill-famed for such companies and 880 million U.S. dollars or 23 percent of the state government total budget were collected from the above-said companies as taxes in 2013 only. This indicates that the U.S. is mulling making up for the exorbitant fiscal deficit caused by the indiscreet operation of war economy through the circulation of illegal funds. The U.S. is the world's worst criminal state making no scruple of despicable practices in financial dealing to meet its interests though it is censured and condemned by the international community. The said bogus companies in the American empire and their illegal financial activities are paving the way even for international criminal organizations to escalate their crimes. The U.S. should no longer cry out for abiding by the international financial order and cutting off the financial sources of the terrorist bodies.


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."

Pyongyang, July 21 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Emergency Measure Committee for Rescuing Abducted Persons on Thursday gave the following answer to the question put by KCNA in connection with the fact that the south Korean puppet regime is keeping the women citizens of the DPRK abducted by it away from any contact with outside under the pretext of "personal safety " of the families of the abductees: Progressive organizations of people from all walks of life in south Korea including the Bar Association for Democratic Society and the office of the UN high commissioner for Human Rights asked for interviews with the abductees of the DPRK, but the puppet regime turned it down under the pretext of "personal safety " of the families of the victims.
Meanwhile, the puppet regime let human scum talk such nonsense that if the "women, who voluntarily defected from the north," are opened to public, their families in the north would be in danger. What the regime claimed is nothing but sheer sophism to prevent the disclosure of the truth about its thrice-cursed group allurement and abduction of women of the DPRK. At the families' earnest request, we repeatedly demanded the south Korean puppet authorities allow their families to go to Seoul via Panmunjom to have face-to-face meeting with their children.

The families are now repeatedly calling on the south Korean puppet regime to allow them to meet their children, greatly angered by its continued detention of their children under the pretext of "group defection according to their free will."

This notwithstanding, the puppet group is vocal about "personal safety" of the families of the abductees. This is an intolerable insult to them and cheap propaganda aimed to tarnish the image of the dignified DPRK. If the puppet forces did not abducted citizens of the DPRK, why do they refuse to make public the fate of the abductees and meet the request for informal interview with them made by international human rights organizations even today after the lapse of three months since they were taken to south Korea?

As clearly disclosed through the press conference with a stooge of the puppet Intelligence Service who was recently spotted and arrested in the DPRK, the puppet group has gone frantic in its smear campaign against the DPRK while appeasing and deceiving citizens of the DPRK and alluring and abducting them to south Korea and then misleading the public opinion by describing it as "voluntary defection from the north".
The puppet group is resorting to sleight of hand such as "personal safety" of families of abductees in a bid to justify its vicious act of putting them in custody and keeping them away from contact with outside. But it can never cover up its true colors as a group of international terrorists and human rights abusers.

Absolutely unpardonable is the hideous unethical and treacherous crime of the puppet group that is forcing their children to be separated from their parents against their will and seeking to make them fall victim to the farce of confrontation with fellow countrymen in the north.

The puppet group has to immediately stop the unbearable mental and physical persecution of the woman citizens of the DPRK and cruel "defection operation" and send them back to the embrace of the DPRK unconditionally. We will continue to press for proactive measures to roundly disclose the truth behind the group abduction committed by the puppet group and realize the repatriation of the abductees.

North Headquarters of Pomminryon Hits out at Park Geun Hye Regime's Treachery

Pyongyang, July 23 (KCNA) -- The North Headquarters of the Pan-National Alliance for Korea's Reunification (Pomminryon) in a statement on Saturday bitterly denounced the south Korean regime's moves to deploy THAAD in south Korea as a hideous confrontational move to bring the disaster of a nuclear war to the inviolable country and a thrice-cursed act of selling off the interests and security of the nation to the U.S. lock, stock and barrel.
It also extended full support and solidarity to the south Korean people in their just dailymounting struggle against THAAD deployment. Noting all successive rulers of south Korea kowtowed to the U.S. but there was no such traitor as Park Geun Hye who has gone so far as to sell off even the interests of the nation as a pro-U.S. prostitute in an ill-minded bid to escalate the confrontation with the compatriots in the north, the statement said: It is quite natural for the south Korean people to stage a bold struggle in protest against the U.S. and the Park regime's moves for deploying THAAD in order to protect their right to existence and future.
If such traitors as Park prolonging her remaining days through sycophancy towards the U.S. and confrontation with compatriots are allowed to go with impunity, it is hard to deliver south Korea from a bottomless quagmire of uneasiness and terror and help all Koreans escape misfortune and disaster of a nuclear war, to say nothing of national reunification.

All Koreans in the north, the south and abroad should make a clean sweep of the group of traitors bringing a horrible nuclear disaster to the Korean nation by intensifying the all-out actions against the Park group's moves to deploy THAAD. The Park Geun Hye group of traitors will never escape severe punishment by history for her thrice-cursed crimes against the nation.


Pyongyang, July 21 (KCNA) -- Park Geun Hye at the recent Asia-European summit in Mongolia cried out for "denuclearization of the north" and "right changes." She made mean solicitation for "enforcement of sanctions measures".
A spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country of the DPRK in a statement Thursday dismissed her recent despicable behavior as just a repetition of her sickening conduct which the international community is used to witness during her every foreign trip as it only disclosed once again the true nature of confrontation-minded woman steeped in inveterate repugnancy and hostility toward her fellow countrymen in the north to the marrow of her bones.
She has made over 20 foreign tours since she took power during which she spouted stereotyped confrontational rhetoric hurting her fellow countrymen in the north and made a spectacle of herself, clean indifferent who the opposite party is and what the agenda item is to be discussed, the statement said, and went on: But no matter how mischievous Park may become, the nuclear deterrence of the DPRK for self-defence has been remarkably bolstered to be a treasured sword meeting the desperate challenge of the hostile forces and firmly guaranteeing the sovereignty and dignity of the nation and a powerful weapon for ensuring peace and stability in Northeast Asia, to say nothing of the Korean peninsula.
What's more, the international "cooperation" which Park has touted so vociferously is now proving more bankrupt than ever before. This is a hard reality today. As a matter of fact, the recent trip of Park must be called the one to escape protest of the south Koreans angered by the humiliating decision to deploy THAAD and to evade public criticism.
Traitor Park roamed about abroad like a rabid dog while slandering her fellow countrymen after reducing south Korea to a mayhem. She is a trouble-maker and malignant tumor which all the Koreans in the north and the south and abroad have to eliminate at an early date. So pitiful is Park as she makes desperate efforts to do harm to her fellow countrymen, touring this or that country, being unaware of how much the international community snubs and rejects her.
Great irony is that Park who is finding herself in the abyss of ruin, being driven into a tight corner inside and outside, openly revealed her attempt at "unification through absorption" while making such remarks that "unification is the way of recovering freedom and human rights of someone and a starting point in building a world without nuclear weapons", being unaware of where she stands. Should the puppet group ignite a nuclear war against the DPRK with the backing of the U.S. while dreaming of "achieving the unification of social systems", we will mercilessly wipe out the provocateurs through a great and just war for reunification and achieve reunification of our own style.

This is our firm stand. It is quite natural that the south Koreans today are strongly demanding Park step down as early as possible before the nation faces greater disaster, saying it is sickening to have just a glance at her. What awaits Park adding to her high treasons is only a stern punishment by history, warned the statement.


Pyongyang, July 21 (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. found fault with the ballistic rocket firing drill conducted by the Korean People's Army: Official figures of the White House and the State and Defense Departments of the U.S. are branding the ballistic rocket firing drill conducted by the Hwasong artillery units of the Strategic Force of the KPA as "violation of resolution" of the UN Security Council and "provocation".
The U.S. action reminds one of a thief crying "Stop the thief!" as it took issue with the routine military rehearsal of the KPA. The U.S. has to look back on the fact that it is posing a grave threat to the DPRK with nuclear weapons after bringing to south Korea all types of strategic assets, before slandering others. The unceasing arms buildup and nuclear war drills of the U.S. are real threats to the peace and security of the Korean peninsula and a wanton violation of the UN Charter and international law.
Just like a robber shaking his fist at the owner after breaking into his house, the U.S. is accusing the DPRK of its legitimate countermeasure for self-defence. This is an intolerable provocation against the DPRK. With the joint military exercises Ulji Freedom Guardian scheduled in coming August at hand, the U.S. is steadily escalating the tension on the Korean peninsula.
There is no guarantee that the saber-rattling which the U.S. plans to stage with the coming joint military exercises as an occasion would not lead to igniting the fuse of a nuclear war. The spokesman warned that the U.S. will be made to face a prompt, merciless and deadly nuclear retaliation if it plays with fire on the peninsula despite the repeated warnings by the DPRK.

Some countries about to side with the U.S. should take unbiased stand with a clear understanding of the nature of the situation and contribute to ensuring peace and security on the Korean peninsula and in the rest of the world, the spokesman stressed.


Spokesman for Foreign Ministry of DPRK Pyongyang, July 25 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK released the following statement on Monday: The DPRK, who won a victory in the confrontation of rifles and A bombs in the war ignited by the U.S. in the1950s thanks to the Juche-based war methods and leadership of President Kim Il Sung, has registered a series of victories in an all-out stand-off with the U.S., demonstrating its might as an invincible nuclear power, a power with elite army, under the Songun guidance of leader Kim Jong Il and Marshal Kim Jong Un.
Much water has flown under the bridge since the hard-fought war in the 1950s but the U.S. remains unchanged in its wild ambition to invade the DPRK. The U.S. has persisted in its arms buildup, war drills and military provocations on the Korean peninsula, seized with its invariable scenario to stifle the DPRK and dominate Asia and the world, far from drawing a lesson from the serious political and military defeats it sustained in the past Korean war.
It dared hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK, not content with escalating harsh sanctions and pressure upon it while massively introducing various strategic nuclear strike means and latest war hardware into south Korea. While stepping up the moves to deploy THAAD, the U.S. is busy staging ever more undisguised war drills.

Despite the international community's concern and denunciation of the its saber-rattling pushing the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a war, the U.S. is mulling staging Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military drills targeting the DPRK in August in league with the [2] south Korean puppet forces. If the U.S. opts for igniting the second Korean war in defiance of the strategic position of the DPRK and the trend of the times, it will never escape its final doom with no one left to sign a surrender document.


Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA) Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea and chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK, gave field guidance to the Fish Food Factory run by KPA Unit 810.
Visiting the factory in March last year, he underscored the need to steadily put its modernization and cultured practice in production and life on a higher level. And he set forth the tasks for reinforcing modern equipment, putting all its production processes on an automated and stream-lined basis and turning its compound into a woodland and orchard and provided it with valuable equipment.
He took hands of the officials one by one and noted that he was very pleased to hear that the output at the factory has remarkably increased as it was furnished with modern equipment. And he gave a high appreciation of the unit, saying that it is ready to do all what the Party desired.
He went round food processing shop, fish sorting ground, fish freezing chamber, food storage and other places of the factory.
He noted that the factory made a lot of achievements in the work to establish the scientific and rational fish food production method while successfully introducing a combined control system for fish food production processes and streamlining the processing, package and carriage on a high level.
It is admirable that the factory has run a newly-built sci-tech room on a normal basis to improve the technical skills of its employees, he said.
The factory has an important role to play in implementing the Party's intention to supply fresh fish to servicepersons and civilians all the year round through further development of pisciculture, he said, advancing the tasks to be carried out by it.
He gave an instruction that officials, scientists and technicians of the relevant field should visit the factory and manufacture modern floating food production equipment for fish farms.
He is very pleased to see the factory full of modern equipment and its production potentials is great, he said, adding that if the factory keeps the production going at a high rate, enough quality fish food can be supplied to fish farms.
Noting that KPA Unit 810 has registered a lot of successes in the efforts to bring a radical turn in fish farming as intended by the Party, he said its secret lies in that the unit is displaying the spirit of unconditionally implementing the Party policy in hearty response to it. He gave strength and courage to the unit so that it can steadily play a vanguard role in the drive for developing the country's pisciculture.

He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, O Su Yong and Jo Yong Won.


Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA) Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK, provided field guidance to the drill for ballistic rocket fire of the Hwasong artillery units of the KPA Strategic Force.
He, together with General Kim Rak Gyom, commander of the Strategic Force, and other commanding officers, went round the firing sites to learn about the preparations for ballistic rocket firing. After hearing about its plan, he ordered to kick off the drill.
The drill was conducted by limiting the firing range under the simulated conditions of making preemptive strikes at ports and airfields in the operational theater in south Korea where the U.S. imperialists nuclear war hardware is to be hurled. And it once again examined the operational features of the detonating devices of nuclear warheads mounted on the ballistic rockets at the designated altitude over the target area.
It fully demonstrated the combat capability of the Hwasong artillery units.
Kim Jong Un expressed great satisfaction over the successful drill, highly praising the artillerymen for keeping themselves fully ready to carry out any order issued all of a sudden and for being always exact and elaborate both in maneuverability and striking force.
He assigned the leading officials of the WPK Central Committee, scientists and technicians in the field of research into nuclear weapons and commanding officers of the KPA Strategic Force accompanying him to the tasks of fully ensuring speed and security of the operation of nuclear attack system, rounding off the Juche-based firepower striking methods and developing diverse type ballistic rockets.

He was accompanied by Ri Man Gon, Ri Pyong Chol, Hong Sung Mu, Kim Jong Sik and other leading officials of the WPK Central Committee and scientists and technicians in the field of research into nuclear weapons.
