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.
