The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) is the state news agency of North Korea that was established on December 5, 1946. The agency portrays the putative views of the Workers' Party of Korea and the North Korean government for foreign consumption. KCNA is headquartered in the capital city of Pyongyang. In South Korea, access to both KCNA websites: www.kcna.kp and www.kcna.co.jp, are blocked by the South Korean government.
Pyongyang, April 26 (KCNA) -- An editorial member of Minjok Thongsin, an internet newspaper of Koreans in the U.S., on April 3 released a commentary denouncing the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK.
The commentary accused south Korean conservative media, the U.S. and Western media of making reports distorting the cause of the crisis on the Korean Peninsula and the essence of the showdown with the U.S.
The basic cause is attributable to the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK, it said, and went on:
As already known, the DPRK has called for concluding a peace treaty, longing for denuclearization.
But the U.S., turning back on the DPRK's call, designated it as the target of preemptive nuclear strike, while encroaching upon its sovereignty. It has persisted in its hostile policy toward the DPRK, singling it out as an "axis of evil". In this course the DPRK has prepared the self-defensive capabilities to protect its sovereignty and dignity.
It did not yield to the U.S. as it regarded the sovereignty as its life and soul, even though it had to make the forced march.
Nevertheless, the conservative media have talked about "provocation of the north".
Whoever has common sense and conscience should properly answer what is the cause of the crisis and how to tide over it.
All countries of the world have the right to launch satellites.
Several countries launched many satellites but the UN Security Council has never slapped sanctions on any of them.
When the DPRK succeeded in launching satellite Kwangmyongsong 3-2, the U.S. prodded the UNSC into adopting a "resolution on sanctions" against the DPRK. How will one answer it?
The U.S. also persisted in applying "sanctions" against the DPRK over its nuclear test. Question is whether such unreasonable acts can convince those with the power of normal thinking.
The U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK convinces no one.
In order to remove the danger of a war on the Korean Peninsula it is necessary to opt for implementing the June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration.
Kim Ryong Song, chairman of the North Side Committee for Implementing the June 15 Joint Declaration, in his keynote speech said that leader Kim Jong Il provided the north-south summit, the first of its kind in the history of national division in June 2000 and saw to it that the June 15 North-South Joint Declaration was adopted, adding that it is an exploit to be specially recorded in the history of the Korean nation.
The adoption of the joint declaration provided the Korean nation with a programme for reunification clearly indicating the basic principle and goals for settling the issue of Korea's reunification and the ways to realize them.
Kim Jong Il once again provided the north-south summit in October 2007 and made sure that the October 4 declaration was adopted, ushering in a new heyday of the development of the north-south relations and peace and prosperity.
