“It is our stand that that is the end of all if we regard everything that happened between the north and the south as an empty dream,” said Jang Kum Chol, director of the United Front Department of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, in a statement on Wednesday.
The statement came the day after the DPRK exploded the unsightly north-south joint liaison office in the Kaesong Industrial Park.
Referring to the fact that the Blue House, much upset by this, convened a meeting of the Security Council and clarified an official stand on the result of the meeting, Jang Kum Chol said that they only tried to shift the blame onto the other by employing the stereotyped method they had resorted to for a long time in the past, ridiculously threatening the north.
The south Korean authorities reportedly expressed strong regret, termed the DPRK's measure an act contrary to expectations, asserted the full responsibility for all situations rests with the north, and bragged that they would take strong countermeasures if the north took measures of continuously aggravating the situation, he noted.
It seems that the south Korean authorities felt an urgent need to keep their face this time as they have been exasperated and pushed to the tight corner till now by our sharp rebuke that they connived at the anti-DPRK hostility committed by human scum and come under fire at home for their humiliating policy of low posture and the policy of behaving at the beck and call of the north, he derided.
The chief culprit, who reduced the north-south declaration and agreement made in the eyes of whole nation and world to a scrap of paper, and the provocateur, who hurt what the DPRK deems sacred and pushed the situation to the nadir by enraging the Korean people, have the temerity to pass the buck, he rebuked.
“The mishap is what they deserve for their crime. Given that they try to shift the blame onto us, despicably talking about the responsibility for the crisis, far from feeling remorse, we will take responsibility without reluctance.
“We are never afraid of whatever responsibility, as there is nothing to be implemented and no future for improved inter-Korean relations even if we have many vis-a-vis talks with such coward, weak and despicable guys.”
We have no intention to sit together with the authorities of the south side who evoke only disgust and nasty feelings, he said, adding that when considering the merits and demerits of a total rupture of inter-Korean relations, the DPRK has nothing to lose, but it will be a matter of concern to the south Korean chief executive who has been engrossed in making administrative records during his stay in office.
Through the current crisis, he concluded, it has been proved that the enemy is the enemy after all and we made quite correct decisions.
