U.S. Urged to Make Policy Switchover

U.S. Urged to Make Policy Switchover

Pyongyang, August 31 (KCNA) -- The U.S. should drop its hostile policy toward the DPRK if the nuclear issue between the DPRK and the U.S. is to be settled, which is a precondition and master key to the settlement of the issue. Rodong Sinmun today says this in a signed article.

The article says: Only when it becomes obvious that the non-aggression treaty with legal binding force is concluded and diplomatic relations are established between the DPRK and the U.S. and the U.S. does not hamstring economic cooperation between the DPRK and other countries, it can be considered that the U.S. substantially gives up its hostile policy toward the DPRK.

The DPRK proposed to the U.S. to drop its hostile policy toward the DPRK as a realistic and reasonable way for the settlement of the issue. That conforms to the desire of the world people for peace.

The U.S. advertises that it has no intention to invade and attack the DPRK. If it is true, there is no reason whatsoever for the U.S. not to make a radical switchover in its hostile policy toward the DPRK.
The mode of "security assurances" without legal guarantee, does not mean a switchover in the hostile policy toward the DPRK.

Only when the U.S. makes a bold decision to make a switchover in its hostile policy toward the DPRK and conclude a non-aggression treaty through the six-way talks, is it possible to settle the issue and improve the DPRK-U.S. relations.

If the U.S. does not want to do so, the nuclear issue will never be settled any time but result in irrevocable consequences.

The U.S. should be aware of the essence of the nuclear issue between the DPRK and the U.S. and make a political decision to drop the hostile policy toward the DPRK at an early date.
