That the south Korean conservatives link the DPRK's access to nukes to the issue of inter-Korean relations is a base intrigue to shift the blame for the extremely deteriorated inter-Korean relations onto the DPRK and to justify their anti-DPRK confrontation policy, says Rodong Sinmun in a signed article on June 29.
It goes on:
The June 15 joint declaration and the October 4
declaration are reunification programmes in the new century which expounded the
most correct principle, orientation and ways for settling the reunification
issue. They are also a supreme banner for reunification which comprehensively
deals with all the past inter-Korean agreements.
However, the south Korean conservative group assailed
the north-south declarations as "pro-communist, enemy-benefiting
documents", described the June 15 era of reunification as "a lost
decade" and has run amuck for the confrontation with the compatriots in
collusion with outsiders. So, the implementation of the inter-Korean
declarations has been completely suspended and the inter-Korean ties have faced
the phase of extreme deterioration.
Even now the south Korean authorities are unhappy with
the opportunity of improving the inter-Korean relations created with much
effort and are making desperate efforts to join the U.S. and Japan in creating
the atmosphere of imposing international "sanctions" on the DPRK.
This notwithstanding, the authorities have pulled up
the DPRK over what they called "the breach of the spirit of the
south-north agreements" and "violation". This is just like a
guilty party filing the suit first.
With nothing can they mislead the public opinion at
home and abroad and conceal their anti-reunification, treacherous colors as the
disturber of the north-south relations.
