N. Korea Six-Way Talks & "Overthrow of System" Incompatible

Struggle against U.S. Moves for New War Called for

Pyongyang, August 29 (KCNA) -- Marwan Sudah, chairman of the Arab Solidarity Committee for Supporting the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front and the Struggle of the South Korean People, released a statement on Aug. 14 on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of Korea's liberation. He recalled that the U.S. imperialists have so far imposed unbearable sufferings and misfortunes on the south Korean people by converting south Korea into their colony and military base.
There is no more urgent task for the south Korean patriotic people of all strata than to terminate the U.S. imperialist colonial rule, achieve national independence and reunify the country today on the threshold of the lapse of 60 years since the occupation of south Korea by the U.S. forces, he said.
He earnestly called upon all the Koreans in the north, the south and overseas and the progressives worldwide to pool strength in forcing the U.S. troops to pull out of south Korea and daringly smashing the U.S. imperialists' moves to provoke a new war.

Six-Way Talks and "Overthrow of System" Are Incompatible: KCNA

Pyongyang, August 29 (KCNA) -- Things are happening that make one feel doubt again as to the U.S. approach to the six-way talks. The U.S. chief executive appointed an "envoy for the human rights issue of north Korea" and set in motion the reactionary Radio Free Asia to launch into a massive distorted propaganda about the lot of "defectors from the north." We swear that we regard this as an absurd and foolish attempt to "overthrow the system" of the DPRK at any cost by adding the "human rights" racket to the nuclear issue.
It is something hither-to unknown that the U.S. administration appointed a presidential envoy specializing in the "human rights" issue of the DPRK. Still more grave is that the U.S. brought itself to appoint that "envoy" at the moment when there was a brisk movement for the resumption and progress of the temporarily adjourned six-party talks.
This suggests that the greater the expectation for the six-party talks and the faster the process of the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, the fiercer will be the "human rights" offensive of the United States against the DPRK.
The target of the six-way talks is the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and it must be based on the mutual respect for the sovereignty of the dialogue partner. Underlying the "human rights" racket kicked up by the U.S., however, is disregard of the sovereignty of the DPRK and it is aimed to "overthrow" its system. The six-party talks were delayed a little more than one year as the U.S. demolished the very foundation of the talks by disregarding and disrespecting its dialogue partner. The U.S. is now repeating this folly. This is tantamount to urging the DPRK to reconsider its approach to the talks.
The six-way talks and the overthrow of the system can never go together. This is the lesson drawn from the suspension of the talks for thirteen months. If the U.S. behaves without discretion, oblivious of this lesson, it would be entirely to blame for all the consequences arising from this.
It is the tragedy of the United States not to know the DPRK properly yet.
