Pyongyang, November 9 (KCNA) -- A spokesman of the Consultative Council for National Reconciliation gave an answer to a question raised by KCNA Thursday in connection with the fact that the south Korean authorities announced a "proposal for independent sanctions on the north".
The puppet authorities made public the "proposal", timed to coincide with U.S. President Trump's visit to south Korea, the spokesman said, and went on:
This is another unpardonable provocation to the DPRK and a hideous act of escalating confrontation with the fellow countrymen.
The "proposal" was announced one day before Trump's visit. This is a servile and clumsy act of brownnosing the master to flatter him.
The puppet regime itself admitted that the "independent sanctions" have neither effectiveness nor significance. But they are now trumpeting about "contribution" and "effect". This is a ridiculous and foolish act disclosing their poor position as colonial stooges who can prolong their remaining days only by currying favour with their master.
Their farce of slapping "sanctions on the north" is an act as foolish as trying to pump up water with net, and to expect any "sanctions effect" is as foolish as waiting for the sea water to dry.
No matter how desperately the U.S., all sorts of hostile forces and the puppet forces may try in their efforts to put pressure on the DPRK, nothing can check the army and people of the DPRK dynamically advancing toward the final victory with the might of single-minded unity under the uplifted banner of Juche.
The south Korean puppet forces should clearly understand that the "independent sanctions" are as suicidal as tightening the noose already put around their neck.
They will be made to pay a dear price for having committed cursed crime before the nation to serve the gangster hanger-on who just spends a night in south Korea.
