Apr. 18, 2013 (TSR-Agencies) – The defense commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Thursday urged Washington and Seoul to stop provocations, part of conditions laid out by Pyongyang for restoring talks amid tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

The commission also demanded the United States and South Korea fully apologize for their aggressions, and give assurances not to carry out nuclear war games designed to intimidate the DPRK, according to the official KCNA news agency.

It also urged Washington and Seoul to withdraw nuclear weapons stationed in and around South Korea, and refrain from redeploying them, if they want to reopen negotiations with Pyongyang.

The statement followed months of super tensions on the Korean Peninsula after the United Nations Security Council imposed fresh sanctions against Pyongyang last month after it conducted a third nuclear test in February.

The United States and South Korea have since carried out intensive war games in and around South Korea, including sending B-52 strategic heavy bombers and B-2 stealth bombers to South Korea, apparently in a show of force.

These moves have led the DPRK to make repeated threats of war, which spooked many in and outside the region.

The statement noted that the United States and South Korea have expressed the willingness to defuse the crisis through negotiations and diplomatic efforts, but it blasted Washington and Seoul for setting preconditions for restarting talks with Pyongyang.

It rebuked assertions made by Washington and Seoul that blamed the so-called “provocations” and “threats” of the DPRK as an obstacle in reopening negotiations.

China, a close neighbor of Korean Peninsula, has long called on all sides to exercise restraint and stop tit-for-tat strategies to avoid further escalations of the situation.

Amid festering tensions on the Korean Peninsula, Chinese leaders have warned against stirring chaos at their country’s doorsteps.

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said Saturday that troublemaking on the Korean Peninsula issue would harm the interests of all the parties involved.

“To do that is nothing different from lifting a rock only to drop it on one’s own toes,” Li said in his meeting with visiting U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

“The parties involved should shoulder their responsibilities and be ready to bear the consequence to safeguard the regional peace and stability,” Li added.

The statement also said the situation on Korean Peninsula is directly linked with the peace and stability in northeast Asia and the world, and the DPRK’s military and its people will closely monitor the future actions by the United States and its “followers.”

Here is the full statement released on Thursday by the Policy Department of the National Defence Commission (NDC) of the DPRK:

An acute situation that has persisted on the Korean Peninsula since the end of last year is now putting the peninsula on the verge of war.

Much upset by the development, U.S. President Obama on April 11 reportedly stated in public of his intention to seek a negotiated and diplomatic settlement of the situation, saying that he does not want a war on the Korean Peninsula.

The chief of Chongwadae of south Korea, who is accustomed to currying favor with her master, let the “minister of Unification” make public a “statement”. She even loudly spoke of “the authorities’ proposal for dialogue to tide over the situation”, a U-turn from her previous attitude of stoking confrontation. She used to say that there can be neither dialogue nor dispatch of a special envoy at present.

The rhetoric about dialogue raised by the master and the stooge almost at the same time is a political decision made by them out of their calculation that they can never bring the DPRK into submission with military threats and “sanctions”.

It will be very much gratifying if they took a proper political decision to bring under control the grave situation prevailing on the Korean Peninsula with true interest in dialogue and negotiations.

But matter is that the U.S. and the south Korean puppet regime cried out for starting dialogue in an appropriate environment, in an appropriate time and under appropriate condition despite their loud claim that the U.S. and south Korea made a U-turn toward dialogue and negotiations. The preconditions for dialogue raised by them include a stop to “provocative” remarks which the DPRK has so far been engaged in and demonstration of its intention to realize denuclearization and suspend missile launch. These are absurd ones.

The U.S. and south Korea are opt-repeating “provocation” and “threats” from the DPRK, describing them as a stumbling block in the way of dialogue hoped for by them, while making the story of “north-south dialogue first and north Korea-U.S. dialogue next” an established fact as if the north had agreed to it.

In this regard, the Policy Department of the National Defence Commission (NDC) of the DPRK brings to light the nature of the prevailing situation and clarifies once again the principled stand of the DPRK.

There is a Korean saying which goes “Thief calls stop thief”.

The U.S. and all kinds of hostile forces following it are the very ones who pushed the situation on the Korean Peninsula to such a grave phase as now.


But the masterminds of the tense situation are portraying the DPRK as “provoker”, while describing them as victims. It appears that they are not afraid of divine punishment.


But the masterminds of the tense situation are portraying the DPRK as “provoker”, while describing them as victims. It appears that they are not afraid of divine punishment.

The “provocation” charge brought against the DPRK by the U.S. has become undisguised since they called the DPRK’s legitimate and peaceful satellite launch as a “missile launch”.

The DPRK’s working satellite Kwangmyongsong 3-2 was confirmed to be going around its orbit by the North American Aerospace Defense Command. Russia and several other countries also admitted this and shortly ago a scientific and research institute of south Korea photographed the DPRK’s satellite and made it public. But with their eyes shut to this stark fact, the U.S. and the south Korean puppet regime are stepping up provocations against the DPRK.

No wonder, the world public has now become increasingly vocal, condemning the U.S. and its allies’ vicious provocation of getting the UN Security Council pass the “resolution on sanctions” and calling the satellite launch a “missile launch” as a “deception that disgraced justice and conscience” and an “act of blind men unable to discern skirt from trousers”.

The UNSC’s “resolution on sanctions” following the DPRK’s legitimate satellite launch was a prelude to an open provocation by the U.S. and the south Korean puppet regime to inveigle all the forces following it to the worldwide campaign for isolating and stifling the DPRK. The nuclear war exercises being staged against the DPRK for nearly two months is a vicious, all-out military provocation.

The U.S. even brought to south Korea and to waters off it super-large nuclear-powered carrier task force equipped with nuclear warheads, B-52, B-2 and other nuclear strategic bombers, nuclear-powered submarines capable of launching cruise guided shells and guided shell destroyers and even F-22 Stealth fighter formation to be used for making maiden strikes at the targets of the DPRK’s army in the early days of war. They have stepped up the military provocation in an all-round way which now has reached the most dangerous phase of nuclear blackmail.

The DPRK has never termed the U.S. satellite launches missile launches and attempted to urge the UN to adopt resolutions on sanctions under that pretext. It has never threatened and blackmailed the U.S. by deploying its elite armed forces in waters off the U.S.

If the U.S. and south Korean puppet forces are not wolves in human form, they should properly understand the word provocation and feel ashamed of their brigandish behaviors.

It is another provocation against the DPRK that the U.S. urged the former to show the “will for denuclearization” as a precondition for dialogue.

Denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula remains the unshakable will of the army and people of the DPRK.

The joint declaration on denuclearization adopted by the north and the south early in the 1990s was a gain common to the nation as it was initiated by the DPRK with such will.


The U.S., however, introduced nuclear weapons into south Korea and its vicinity in league with puppet forces and began to escalating threat and blackmail against the DPRK, bringing this precious gain to naught.


The U.S., however, introduced nuclear weapons into south Korea and its vicinity in league with puppet forces and began to escalating threat and blackmail against the DPRK, bringing this precious gain to naught.

In order to cope with the U.S. escalating hostile policy and nuclear blackmail against the DPRK, it was compelled to have access to just nuclear force for self-defence.

Accordingly, nothing is more foolish and brigandish than pressurizing the DPRK to show its “will for denuclearization” first.

The nuclear force of the DPRK will always remain in the hands of its army and people as the most powerful means to protect the sovereignty of the country and its supreme interests and deal a retaliatory blow at the strongholds of aggression against it till the world including the U.S. is denuclearized.

Not content with terming the DPRK’s toughest countermeasures “provocations”, the U.S. and south Korean puppet regime went the lengths of ceaselessly hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK and its social system.

The army and people of the DPRK are demonstrating their just will to stand up against the enemies’ moves to isolate and stifle it and nuclear war moves against it. They are, however, describing this will as one for “consolidating the heir’s system”, “enhancing image” and “rallying unstable ranks”. This is the thrice-cursed politically-motivated provocation.

This is nothing but rigmarole let loose by the imbeciles who know nothing about the DPRK.

The bad-tempered U.S. and south Korean puppet regime can never imagine the tears of emotion shed by artillery women when the Supreme Commander took them to his arms and the warm feelings of service personnel and people shouting “hurrah” after jumping into cold sea waters.


As long as they persist in all sorts of provocations against the DPRK, its army and the people will steadily escalate the tough political and military counteractions as the days go by.


As long as they persist in all sorts of provocations against the DPRK, its army and the people will steadily escalate the tough political and military counteractions as the days go by.

The U.S. and the south Korean puppet regime should make a bold decision to take the following practical measures if they want to shirk off the historical responsibility for the prevailing grave situation on the Korean Peninsula, escape sledge-hammer retaliatory blows of the army and people of the DPRK and if they truly stand for dialogue and negotiations:

First, they should immediately stop all their provocative acts against the DPRK and apologize for all of them.

As the first phase, they should take the measure of retracting the UNSC’s “resolutions on sanctions” cooked up under absurd pretexts.

They should bear in mind that doing so would be a token of good will towards the DPRK.

The south Korean puppet forces should promptly halt all their anti-DPRK rackets, not linking their own mishaps such as Cheonan warship sinking incident and the “March 20 hacking case” to the north.

Second, they should give formal assurances before the world that they would not stage again such nuclear war drills to threaten or blackmail the DPRK.

Dialogue can never go with war actions.

Frequent nuclear war maneuvers will only strain the situation and totally block the way of dialogue.

The army and people of the DPRK will not be taken in by sophism that the nuclear war drills being staged under its very nose are annual and defensive military actions for defending the U.S. and guaranteeing the security of south Korea.

Third, they should make a decision to withdraw all nuclear war means from south Korea and its vicinity and give up their attempt to reintroduce them as their immediate duty.

They should bear in mind that the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula can begin with the pullout of the nuclear war means introduced by the U.S. and this may lead to the global denuclearization.

The chief of Chongwadae should not forget that the prospect of south Korea may be rosy when the north’s nukes are considered as a property common to the nation but south Korea is bound to go to ruin when it remains under the U.S. nuclear umbrella.

The situation on the peninsula is directly linked with peace and security in Northeast Asia and the rest of the world.

The army and people of the DPRK together with the world peace-loving people who sympathize with justice and value conscience will closely follow the future behavior of the U.S. and its followers.


There will be neither dialogue nor improved relations between the north and the south as long as south Korea persists in such hostile acts as enforcing sanctions against the DPRK, taking part in the acts to stifle it, deliberately accusing it of its space development and bolstering of its nuclear force and staging war exercises after massively introducing sophisticated war hardware into south Korea, declared a spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) in a statement issued on Thursday.

Recently the south Korean authorities expressed “regret and disappointment” at the DPRK’s rejection of their proposal for dialogue, the statement said, and went on:

They went the lengths of making impudent remarks that “the north should make a right choice”, jabbering that “it chilled the atmosphere and overturned the table”.

Had they have a true will to have dialogue, they should have halted all acts of hurting the dignity of the DPRK, stopped the north-targeted war exercises and smear campaign and given assurances to the nation that they would not resort to such hostile acts in the days ahead.

However, a spate of invectives slandering the celebrations of the Day of the Sun was let loose and such thrice-cursed crime as infringing upon the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK was committed in the heart of Seoul in broad daylight at the tacit connivance of the south Korean authorities.

Puppet minister of Defense Kim Kwan Jin and other warmongers kicked up confrontation hysteria, crying out for “a total war, strong counteraction and stern and decisive punishment.”

Worse still, the chief of Chongwadae let loose a whole string of jargons seriously hurting the dignity of the north. She blustered that “it is necessary to terminate the vicious cycle of renegotiating and assisting the north when it poses a threat and perpetrates a provocation and that such threat and provocation would isolate the north.”

All these facts prove that the south Korean authorities were compelled to propose dialogue under the pressure of the public, having no sincere heart.

They clearly indicate that the proposed dialogue is nothing but a deceptive artifice to cover up their act of having pushed the situation to a state of war, tide over the crisis and mislead the public opinion in a bid to shift the responsibility onto the north.
The south Korean authorities are employing sleight of hand as regards the issue of the Kaesong Industrial Zone but the crisis there most vividly reflects the present state of the inter-Korean relations.

They, along with their American master, are still talking such nonsense as “denuclearization” in the north in a bid to make a bargain over its nukes. They would be well advised to drop such daydream.

As a matter of fact, the DPRK was technically at a nuclear war with the U.S.

The U.S. has posed a threat to the DPRK with all its ultramodern nuclear strategic weapons and hardware.

This showdown was sparked by the U.S. and other hostile forces as they took issue with the DPRK over its legitimate satellite launch for peaceful purposes.

The confrontation maniacs should properly understand that the principled stance of the DPRK will never change, warned the statement.

COMBATTING U.S. LIES and PROPAGANDA: China denies military buildup on Sino-DPRK border

A Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman on Tuesday denied media reports of China’s military buildup on its border with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK).

“Such reports are not true,” Yang Yujun said while answering a question at a press conference which was held on the same day China released a national defense white paper.

Reports in foreign media earlier this month alleged that China was bulking up its military presence on the DPRK border amid an escalation in tensions in the region.

China is paying close attention to the development of the current situation on the Korean Peninsula and will remain committed to safeguarding peace and stability in Northeast Asia, Yang said.

It is widely known that the peninsula’s situation is “complex and sensitive,” he said, responding to another question.

China believes that a peaceful and stable Korean Peninsula is in the interests of people from all countries in the region, while unrest could mean disaster to them, Yang said.

Under a clear and consistent stance, China is committed to maintaining peace and stability, advancing the Korean Peninsula’s denuclearization, and addressing and settling the problem through dialogue, the spokesman said.
