DPRK's Stand on Nuclear Issue Reiterated

DPRK's Stand on Solution to Nuclear Issue Reiterated

The DPRK will closely follow how the U.S. will move at the phase of "action for action" in the future. A DPRK delegate declared this at a plenary session of the Geneva Conference on Disarmament on September 22, referring to the close of the second phase of the fourth six-party talks on the nuclear issue between the DPRK and the U.S. The DPRK approached the talks with magnanimity, patience and sincerity, proceeding from the principled, fair and aboveboard stand to achieve the general goal of the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula at any cost, and at last succeeded in meeting all the challenges, making it possible to agree on the joint statement, "verbal commitments," he noted, and went on:
The joint statement reflects the DPRK's consistent stand on the settlement of the DPRK-U.S. nuclear issue and, at the same time, the commitments of the U.S. and south Korea responsible for denuclearizing the whole of the Korean Peninsula. The DPRK will feel no need to keep even a single nuclear weapon if its relations with the U.S. are normalized, bilateral confidence is built and it is not exposed to the U.S. nuclear threat any longer.
What is most essential is, therefore, for the U.S. to provide light water reactors to the DPRK as early as possible as evidence proving the former's substantial recognition of the latter's nuclear activity for a peaceful purpose.

Motion Calling for Nat'l Assembly's Ratification of Proposal for Rice Negotiations under Fire in S. Korea

Pyongyang, September 27 (KCNA) -- The lawmakers from the Democratic Workers' Party of south Korea occupied the place where government policies are examined by the Unification, Diplomacy and Trade Committee of the National Assembly (NA) and went on a sit-in struggle there in protest against the motion calling for the NA ratification of the proposal on rice negotiations on Sept. 23, according to south Korean KBS. They charged that the NA should not take up the above-said proposal unless the demands of the peasants are reflected in it.
Earlier, the Democratic Workers' Party and peasants bodies called a press conference at which they held that the suspicion about the agreement reached at the rice negotiations has not yet been clarified and the adverse impact it will have on the living of the peasants has not been examined, holding that there is no ground to introduce the motion to the NA.
