Military Pressure Will Never Work on DPRK

Military Pressure Will Never Work on DPRK

Pyongyang, August 21 (KCNA) -- The former director of the Central Intelligence Agency and other heavyweights of the U.S. hard-line forces let loose a string of bellicose remarks that the agreement to hold the six-way talks would change nothing and the U.S. and south Korea should be ready for the second Korean war including the military attack despite the projected talks. Rodong Sinmun today in a signed commentary dismisses this as an open demonstration of strength toward the dialogue partner and a racket of military pressure.

The commentary goes on:

What should not be overlooked is the south Korean authorities' attitude of supporting the U.S. moves to provoke a war against the north.

Shortly ago, the minister of National Defence of south Korea called for increasing the national defence spending and the south Korean military is applying to the Ulji Focus Lens joint military exercises now underway in south Korea the offensive tactics worked out by Striker unit, an elite combat unit of the U.S. army equipped with ultra-modern precision weapons, to suit the geographical conditions of the Korean peninsula through its exercises to get familiar with south Korea.

The DPRK has so far made every sincere effort for the negotiated peaceful settlement of the nuclear issue between the DPRK and the U.S.

The six-way talks soon to be opened for the solution to the DPRK-U.S. nuclear issue are the result of the DPRK's positive initiative and efforts.

The U.S. pays such lip-service as "it has no intention to invade the north", talking about "dialogue" but, in actuality, poses threat to it and openly seeks to stifle it by force.

It is an aim sought by the U.S. before the six-way talks to wrest a sort of "concession" from the north by threatening and blackmailing it by force and realize its ambition to invade the north with ease. The U.S. should drop this wild dream. The U.S. and the south Korean authorities would be well advised to cool their heads overheated with war fever, do soul-searching and behave with discretion.
