It is the solemn requirement or thereality to put an end to the moves of the south Korean authorities forconfrontation with the DPRK, says Rodong Sinmun Monday in abylined article.
To improve the relations between the north and the south of Korea isan important way for defusing the confrontation and tension on theKorean Peninsula and solving the issue of reunification by peacefulmeans, the article says, adding:
It is the consistent will of the DPRK to pave a wide avenue for peaceand reunification and national prosperity by averting the danger of warin the peninsula by the concerted efforts of the Korean nation on thebasis of the historic June 1 5 joint declaration and the October 4declaration and putting an end to the history of confrontation betweenfellow countrymen.
The long history of national division clearly shows that there isnothing but continued division and terrible war disaster for the northand the south to get from escalation of distrust and confrontation.
Moreover, the Koreans keenly realized again in the last three yearssince the emergence of the present south Korean conservative authorities that confrontation can never be a solution to the issue ofthe north-south relations and this will only bring armed conflict andwar.
Dialog e between the north and the south is an important matterrelated to the destiny of the nation and the prospect of nationalreunification, and it is for common interests and prosperity of bothsides. If the south Korean authorities persistently check theresumption of north-south dialogue, putting up unreasonablepreconditions which can never work on the DPRK, the deterioratedinter-Korean relations will never be improved. The ruling forces ofsouth Korea should, above all, take proper attitude and stand towardthe dialogue.
Those separatists who are set to stand in the way of the dialogue foran indefinite period will never evade a stern punishment by history andthe nation.
Rodong Sinmun on Korean-style Socialism
Pyongyang, May 1-6 (KCNA)
Korean-style socialism is the roadleading to making the Korean revolution ever-victorious The Koreanpeople will never step back even an inch from this road.
Rodong Sinmun Monday says this in a jointly signed article.
To preserve the nature of socialism is the eternal lifeline ofKorean-style socialism, the article notes, and goes on:
Capitalism is the society based on individualism while socialism isthe society based on collectivism Therefore, the nature of socialismlies in collectivism President Kim Il Sung built socialism centered onthe popular masses, guided by the Juche idea, for the first time inhistory and provided the advantages of Korean-style socialism one by one as required by it.
For us to preserve the nature of socialism means, in the final analysis,protecting the socialist system, the collectivism ownership andcollectivist lifestyle provided by the President and the socialist gainswon by the Korean people at the cost of blood and sweat. Preservingthe nature of socialism precisely means defending socialism andboundlessly glorifying it.
To preserve the nature of socialism, in particular, presents itself as animportant issue in frustrating the imperialists' moves against socialismand successfully building a thriving socialist nation.
It is thanks to the original Songun leadership of Kim Jong Il that thenature of socialism is firmly preserved and its vitality is given fullplay with each passing day in the DPRK.
The article underscores the need to dynamically advance the generaldrive for improving the standard of people's of living under hisleadership and demonstrate the invincible might and dignity ofKorean-style socialism before the whole world.
Third Installment of Statement of Inspection Group of NDC of DPRK
Pyongyang, May 15 (KCNA)
The inspection group of the NationalDefence Commission (NDC) of the DPRK on May 14 issued the thirdinstallment of the statement disclosing the ulterior aim sought by thesouth Korean group of traitors in faking up the third and fourth"Cheonan” warship cases, obsessed by the anachronistic ambition.
The statement cited material evidence proving that the "story aboutnorth's involvement" touted by the group of traitors is false.
It was disclosed before the whole world that the "Cheonan" warshipcase was the most hideous conspiratorial case aimed to escalate theconfrontation with compatriots but the group of traitors are stillfloating the above-said story.
The NDC inspection group published a statement to disclose theconspiratorial nature of the "Cheonan" case faked up by the group oftraitors as it was left with no way to fairly settle the case even thoughit employed every possible means and method.
The puppet group which suffered disgrace in the eyes of the worldprovoked the second "Cheonan" case, far from repenting of its wrongs. It was the Yonphyong Island shelling last year.
The group of traitors is faking up farces one after another to expandthe scope of confrontation with fellow countrymen to social domainbeyond political and military fields.
The puppet Intelligence Service and Prosecution invented the storyabout "the north's involvement" in the cyber attack on the bankingcomputer network of the "National Agricultural CooperativeFederation" on May 3.
In the course of 20 odd day-long "intensive investigation" they drew a"tentative conclusion" that this was primarily caused by "cyberterrorism from outside."A few days later they released the results ofinvestigation in which they claimed it was "done by the north".
Meanwhile, they are floating the "story about the threat from thenorth" throughout south Korea, making much ado that the north maycontinue doing fatal damage to core facilities related to the securityincluding the puppet authorities organs, airports, harbors and nuclearpower plants.
It is needless to say that this incident has a thread of connection withthe "Cheonan" case for its motive and method though it was cooked upin other field.
The "Cheonan" case timed to coincide with the situation where theyfelt the urgent need to create serious "security concern" in a bid to putoff the transfer of the right to command wartime operations byinventing a pretext for the permanent U S presence in south Korea.
In a bid to keep the nature of the charade buried into oblivion forever,they fabricated the case in a place and at time unfavorable forclarifying the case, i.e., in territorial waters, not in the open sea,underwater, not on the surface of waters and at midnight, not atnoonday.
This ease took the lives of 46 innocent seamen.
The story about "the north’s involvement" in the above-said cyberattack was faked up at a time when the Chongwadae and the "GrandNational Party" were locked in a fierce dog fight, blaming each otherfor the shameful defeat they suffered in the April 27 by-election due tothe public condemnation of their unpopular rule. It also timed tocoincide with their efforts to seek an artifice to calm down the voicesof countries around the Korean Peninsula demanding the resumptiondialogue.
The federation was sacrificed for cooking up the "story about thenorth's involvement" according to their crafty intention to shift on tothe DPRK the responsibility for the deterioration of the peoplelivelihood and the gap between the rich and the poor during thisregime.
All facts indicate that the fourth and fifth anti*DPRK charades may be orchestrated as long as the group of traitors is working hard to stokeconfrontation between the north and the south, while peddling the"story of the north's involvement” in the wake of the fabrication of the"Cheonan" case.
The relations between the north and the south of Korea were pushed tothe dangerous phase of war due to the hideous "Cheonan" case.
The precious gains of the June 1 5 era of reunification hardly won bythe Korean nation who has suffered from the division were spoiledovernight by the frantic racket for confrontation with fellowcountrymen kicked up by the group of traitors and this resulted in theserious situation reminding one of the era of the Cold War.
The inspection group will continue making efforts to probe the truthas long as the group of traitors is desperately trying to curb thedevelopment of the north-south relations, linking the "Cheonan" casewith the DPRK at any cost.
We strongly urge the group of traitors to own responsibility forfaking up the conspiratorial farces doing harm to the fellowcountrymen and make an official apology before the nation.
We clarify once again that it is the steadfast stand of the army andpeople of the DPRK never to deal with anyone who dare mocks at andinsults the independent sovereignty and socialist system in the DPRK.
The group of traitors will be cursed and denounced for generations tocome, being branded as arch criminals who orchestrated hideousconspiratorial farce*, die-hard confrontation elements and harassers ofreunification, should they persist «n the policy of confrontation withthe DPRK defying its demand.
Fascist Dictatorial Rule of South Korean Authorities Accused
Pyongyang, May 14 (KCNA)
Since the appearance of the presentconservative regime the south Korean society has been reduced to ahell on earth where all rights of human beings have been stamped outand the fascist dictatorship are running roughshod.
Rodong Sinmun Saturday observes this in a by-lined article.
It goes on:
Due to the military occupation of south Korea by the United Statesand its domination over it the independent rights of people have beenrecklessly violated in all fields of social life including politics, economy and culture.
The dictatorial policy pursued by the south Korean ruling circles isreactionary one representing and defending the interests of a handfulof financial group and privileged class in all fabrics of the social life.
As soon as grabbing power, the ruling forces, talking about the “lostdecade", ruthlessly trampled down even the sprout of democratizationwhich the south Korean people gained through dynamic struggle.
The group of traitors has used the ill-famed "Security Law" as ameans for staying in power and retrogressively revised it instead ofabolishing it in a bid to justify its dictatorial rule.
The ruling forces have revived all the repressive machinery of thepast military dictatorship and the Chongwadae is now watching andcollecting the tendency of even the "national assemblymen" andpolitical parties.
The struggle for national reunification has become subject to recklesssuppression in south Korea being branded as "illegal acts" and"enemy-benefiting moves".
Moreover, the south Korean authorities are carrying out the operationof seducing and abducting fellow countrymen with the mobilization offascist plot-breeding organs including the Intelligence Service, theMinistry of Unification and the Defense Security Command as well ashuman traffic organizations.
The south Korean rulers are not in a position to talk about the sacredhuman rights as they are pursuing only unpopular rule and the policyof confrontation with fellow countrymen while failing to ensure theworking people the elementary right to existence, the article concludes.

Pyongyang, May 14 (KCNA)
The relations between the DPRK andthe European Union have favorably developed in line with the bilateralinterests and the international trend.
Rodong Sinmun Saturday stressed this in a bylined article dedicatedto the 10th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between the DPRK and the EU.
After the establishment of diplomatic ties the exchanges andcooperation between the DPRK and member nations of the EU havebeen underway more vigorously and in this course they promotedmutual understanding, the paper said.

Rodong Sinmun Calls for Abolishing Old International Economic Order
Pyongyang, May 12 (KCNA)
Developing countries which entered into the new stage of development in the 21" century are calling forthe earliest abolition of the old order in the field of internationaleconomy.
Rodong Sinmun Thursday observes this in a by-lined article.
It goes on;
It is very important and urgent for the non-aliened and otherdeveloping countries to abolish the old international economic order atpresent.
The imperialists are pursuing a policy aimed at gaining their ownprofits by sacrificing the interests of developing countries through acrafty use of different levers under the above-said order. Consequently,resources and results of labor of developing countries are sold to thecapitalist countries at giveaway prices.
The Western countries are imposing various unreasonableconditionalities upon the goods being exported to developing countries,availing themselves of their economic and technical advantages.
Because of imperialists' artifices the prices of the primary productsfrom those countries are steadily dropping in world markets.
The United States is amalgamating or absorbing banks of developingcountries in reliance upon the old international monetary system and putting raw material resources, means of production, etc. under its control. By doing so it prevents these countries from building anindependent national economy.
Developing countries can neither develop economy not get rid of theimperialists' economic subjugation, exploitation and plunder as long asthe old international economic older remains in force.
Only when the old international economic order is abolished to put anend to inequality, violation of sovereignty and exploitation andplunder of other countries in the international economic relations, is itpossible to guarantee the socio-economic progress of the developingcountries and provide conditions for world stability.
The DPRK will wage a dynamic struggle to abolish the oldinternational economic order and build instead a fair new one in theidea of independence, peace and friendship and thus contribute toadvancing global independence, concludes the article.
KCNA Commentary Blasts U.S. Policy of Overseas Aggression
Pyongyang, May 12 (KCNA)
The president of the World Peace Council, addressing the second peace seminar for the dismantlement of military bases overseas, described U S. President Barack Obama as the new face of its war expansionism.
It exposed once again that the U.S. policy of hegemony which has been pursued historically has been invariably carried forward by the 44th administration and the American president is the chief executor of the government's policy of overseas aggression.
The U.S. has about 850 military bases in 135 countries and it is responsible for 43 percent of military spending worldwide.
No country in the world has so many military bases overseas as theU.S.
The U.S. has stationed its huge troops in the Asia-Pacific regionunder the pretext of coping with the "attack to the south" by the SovietUnion in the period of the Cold War. But it has steadily increased thenumber of military strongholds in that region and hastened theforward-deployment of U.S. forces even now when the Cold War isover and it has no military rivals.
The main thrust of the U.S. Asia strategy is to ward off the influenceof other big powers upon this region, contain the expansion of thesphere of their forces and establish a U S. style order of dominationover it by force of arms.
South Korea and Japan are outposts for carrying out the U.S. Asiastrategy and the forward-deployment of U.S. forces is used as amilitary lever for its implementation.
The U.S. claims that a lot of military bases set up by it in Kuwait,Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, the United Arab Emirates andother Middle East regions are aimed to beat back the possibleaggression from Iran and ensure the security of the oil transport route.
In the middle of the 1990s the U.S. set up its military facilities inHungary, Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Macedonia and SouthernKosovo under the pretext of peace-keeping and humanitarianactivities.
The U.S. set up at least 19 new military bases after the September 11,2001 incident.
Latin America is no exception as far as the issue of U S. military basesis concerned.
The U.S. put five air force bases and two naval bases of Colombiaunder its control under the pretext of "helping it in anti-drugoperations and those to rout anti-government troops." It is set todeploy more than 1 400 personnel and lots of arms and equipmentthere U.S. military bases are operating in El Salvador, Honduras,Panama, Costa Rica, etc.
Many U.S. military bases whose number is on the steady increase invarious countries and regions are unanimously chided by theinternational community for being advanced bases for realizing itsambition for world domination.
Spokesman for CPRK Denounces Lee Myung Bak's Provocative Remarks against DPRK
Pyongyang, May 11 (KCNA)
A spokesman for the Committee forthe Peaceful Reunification of Korea gave an answer to a question putby KCNA Wednesday as regards the provocative remarks made bytraitor Lee Myung Bak against the DPRK during his recent visit toGermany.
On May 8 Lee at the round-table talks with compatriots and a pressconference held during his junket to Germany, the first leg of hisEuropean tour, blustered that the north's nukes are obstructive tounification, urging it to "dismantle" them, and asserted that it should"apologize" for the warship sinking ease and the Yonphyong Islandshelling case. He went the lengths of crying out for "the punishment ofwhat he called "provocation" as regards even the anti-DPRKconspiratorial case orchestrated by him in the past.
He groundlessly pointed an accusing linger at the DPRK, findingfault with its system. He also let loose a string of foolish invectivesinciting despicable confrontation of systems, talking about thepull-down of the Berlin Wall.
The spokesman branded this as a blatant provocation against thesystem and dignity of the DPRK and an intolerable mockery of thepublic opinion at home and abroad and the DPRK's positive efforts fordialogue.
He went on Lee, not content with kicking off the anti-reunificationconfrontation racket in south Korea, made such reckless remarksoverseas This was nothing but the last-ditch effort to chill theever-growing atmosphere of dialogue, ward off the criticism of him forthe collapse of the inter-Korean relations and the failure of Ins policytoward the north and justify his anti-DPRK nuclear racket and themoves to escalate the confrontation with it.
The puppet group was so preposterous as to describe the DPRK's"apology" for the above-said two cases as an option for crossing thethreshold of inter-Korean dialogue. This revealed its ulterior intentionto challenge the DPRK to the end, without having any dialogue with it.
The group's outbursts raising someone's "dismantlement of nukes" as aprecondition for dialogue are no more than a ridiculous attempt todisarm the DPRK and realize the ambition for invading if in collusionwith the U.S.
The group is seeking to import the mode of reunification applied by aforeign country, bewildered by it. This is as foolish an act as expectingthe sky to fall.
The Korean Peninsula is not Germany.
The puppet group is dreaming of such a contingency as whathappened in Germany but it was south Korea where regimes collapsedseveral times due to such contingencies as the April 19 Popular Uprising that broke out on the peninsula.
Great irony is that Lee, a stooge serving the U S in its moves for anuclear war, is going busy with hectic diplomacy over the issue ofopening what he called a nuclear summit in south Korea, the world'sbiggest advanced base for a nuclear war and largest nuclear arsenal.
The world people still remember well that he declared the policy oftoeing the U.S. and the policy of confrontation with fellow countrymenwhen he was coming to power and blustered that it was all right not to have inter-Korean dialogue during the tenure of his office.
The DPRK cannot but seriously consider its stance maintained so faras it has become clear now that the mean declaration made by Lee wasput into practice and he is set to stand in confrontation to the last.
It is quite self-evident that nothing can be expected from a dialoguewith such a man keen on confrontation with fellow countrymen,blinded by a foolish dream.
The DPRK will never pardon those hurting its dignity arid system andmaking a mockery of them but take merciless and strongcounter-actions against them.
The confrontation of the systems will only lead to a war.
If a war breaks out on this land, it will be the Korean nation's just andsacred patriotic war for national reunification.
Lee would be well advised to behave himself, properlyunderstanding the disposition of the DPRK and the reality.
