North Korea Refuses To Cut Nuclear Weapons Program

SPA Approves Measures Taken by Foreign Ministry as regards Nuclear Issue

Pyongyang, September 3 (KCNA) -- The First Session of the Eleventh Supreme People's Assembly (SPA) on September 3 adopted Decision of the DPRK SPA "On approving the external measures taken by the DPRK Foreign Ministry as regards the nuclear issue between the DPRK and the U.S." The decision says:

The First Session of the Eleventh Supreme People's Assembly of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea examined the nuclear issue between the DPRK and the U.S. that has reached a grave phase due to the Bush administration's extremely hostile policy toward the DPRK and made the following decision:

The nuclear issue is a product of the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK from A to Z.

In the hope of seeking a peaceful negotiated settlement of the nuclear issue between the DPRK and the U.S. the DPRK government recently participated in the multilateral talks, not sticking to any format of talks, and confirmed whether the Bush administration is willing to make a policy switchover or not.

At the talks the DPRK clarified that the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula is the general goal of its government and made clear the stand that it would scrap its nuclear program if the U.S. gives up its hostile policy toward the DPRK in practice.

And it set forth a reasonable and comprehensive proposal to denuclearise the Korean peninsula.

However, the Bush administration, in utter disregard of the DPRK's reasonable proposal, imposed upon the DPRK the brigandish demand that the DPRK scrap its nuclear program first.

The U.S. has totally denied the inviolable people's power of Korean style, terming the DPRK "part of an axis of evil" and "a target of preemptive nuclear attacks." It raised the arrogant and brigandish demand that the DPRK scrap its nuclear program first in a complete, verifiable and irreversible manner.

This offered the DPRK an opportunity to confirm that the Bush administration still intends to disarm the DPRK and use the multilateral talks for laying an international siege to the DPRK to isolate and stifle the DPRK.

Now that the U.S. does not want to co-exist peacefully with the DPRK at all and seeks to disarm the DPRK completely, the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK, upon the government's authorization, declared to the world that the DPRK would not feel any need to have such talks nor show any interest and expectation for them any longer and it would have no other option but to keep and increase its nuclear deterrent force as a just self-defensive means to repel the U.S. preemptive nuclear attacks and ensure peace and stability in the Korean peninsula and the region.

The First Session of the 11th Supreme People's Assembly of the DPRK considered as just all the measures taken by the Foreign Ministry upon the authorization of the DPRK government, supported and approved them and decided to take relevant measures.
