US blocks resumption of six-party talks with unreasonable preconditions

DPRK FM Spokesperson Answer
The spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA Tuesday in connection with the fact that the special representative for north Korea policy of the U.S. State Department toured countries around the DPRK:

What the special representative said and did while touring countries around the DPRK proved that the U.S. remains unchanged in its attitude set to check the resumption of the six-party talks while persisting in absurd preconditions.

This clearly proved once again that the U.S. has had no interest in the resumption of the six-party talks from the beginning.

The six-party talks aim at removing the root cause of the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula and denuclearizing the whole of the peninsula in the spirit of respect for sovereignty and equality.

But the U.S. has not fulfilled the commitments it made at the six-party talks in the past and now rejects the talks by raising the brigandish demand for the DPRK's unilateral concession first.

It is also resorting to a trick to shift the blame for the stalled six-party talks on to the DPRK in a bid to evade increasing denunciation and pressure from the public inside and outside.

But with no sleight of hand can it evade its responsibilities for the nuclear issue on the peninsula. It also has to withdraw its hostile policy toward the DPRK and create an atmosphere for denuclearization of the peninsula.

We want a negotiated settlement of the issue but will never accede to unreasonable preconditions raised by the U.S.

The U.S. improper behavior of deliberately creating obstacles in the way of resuming the talks under absurd preconditions will always be blamed and the U.S. will have to own full responsibilities for ensuing consequences.

The DPRK remains unchanged in its goal for the denuclearization of the whole of the Korean Peninsula but it will be compelled to steadily bolster deterrence as long as the U.S. becomes all the more undisguised in pursuing hostile moves and increasing nuclear threats.
