U.S. Urged to Make Clear Its Stand

U.S. Urged to Make Clear Its Stand

Pyongyang, (KCNA) -- If the U.S. truly wants a final solution to the nuclear issue through the successful progress of the six-party talks, it should draw a lesson from its unreasonable acts in the past days and refrain from all the moves spoiling the atmosphere of the talks arranged with so much effort. Minju Joson today says this in a signed commentary as regards the crazy claim of U.S. conservative forces that "bringing the nuclear issue to the UN Security Council should not be ruled out" in case "the talks end fruitless."

The commentary further says:

The U.S. makes the breakdown of the six-party talks an established fact when the talks are yet to open and sets forth its next action program. This is, in essence, little short of an open disclosure of its intention not to actively participate in the process of settling the nuclear issue, placing no big hope in the talks.

This is an intolerable mockery of and challenge to the expectation of the international community which desires so ardently a positive settlement of the nuclear issue.

It is a foolish dream to attain a sinister political aim at the talks by overawing someone with a war pressure.

The U.S. stand in the policy toward the DPRK is a touchstone showing whether it has the will to solve the nuclear issue with the DPRK, or not.

It would be difficult to expect a success of the six-party talks, if the U.S. still dreamed of stifling the DPRK by military force, not giving up its hostile policy toward the latter.

Does the U.S. want dialogue or war? It should make clear its stand.
