DPRK er North Korea calls for formal peace treaty!


I do believe that I recall that NK just got a new Defense Minister (unsure exact title). If this change could bring about a greater degree of peace in the region, then more power to it!

Unfortunately, I am not so sure that China would EVER allow NK to slip away and rejoin with the south. When East and West Germany reunited, the Soviet Union was in a freefall. China is in no way in such a state... in fact, its global domination capabilities are growing based on the foundations the west (mainly the US) supplied with its industrial plant.

There will always be a North Korea. Always...

North Korea, which has been unpredictable in its rhetorical outbursts of late, expressed its desire for an official peace treaty with South Korea. The two nations have been officially at war since the start of the Korean War in 1950.

Pyongyang on Wednesday called for substituting an armistice signed at the end of the Korean War in 1953 with a formal peace treaty to improve stability on the Korean Peninsula, according to Yonhap, the South Korean news agency.

In an article carried by the Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the Workers' Party of Korea, it was argued that efforts to preserve the armistice that brought the three-year conflict to a close in July 1953 can only be viewed as an attempt to rekindle another war.

"There is a pressing need to replace the Armistice Agreement, which is a relic of the war, with a permanent peace regime," the paper said.

Had a formal peace been signed between the North and South following the war, the current impasse over the question of nuclear weapons on the Korean Peninsula would not have become an issue in the first place, the paper added.

It is “unnatural” for a cease-fire pact to be maintained for 60 years and if a disastrous situation were to develop on the Korean Peninsula, the blame for such a development will rest solely on the shoulders of the U.S. that resisted all moves to sign a peace treaty, it continued.

The Korean War (1950-1953) saw the US military, under the aegis of the UN, field over 300,000 troops alongside South Korean forces in a battle against Chinese-supported forces in the North. The conflict left the Korean Peninsula physically and politically divided along the 38th parallel, known as the Korean Demilitarized Zone, a 250 kilometer (160 mile) long, 4 km (2.5 mi) wide buffer that has been described as the most heavily militarized border in the world.

Today, some 28,500 US military personnel are stationed inside South Korea, and this intensive military cooperation between the two countries remains a perennial source of concern for Pyongyang.

Every year, the US and South Korea conduct military exercises (dubbed Key Resolve and Foal Eagle) that invariably attract heated accusations from Pyongyang that the maneuvers are preparatory steps for war.

Furthermore, the military games between South Korea and the US are not only seen as a provocation, but a direct violation of the 1953 armistice agreement, Pyongyang argues. The recluse Communist nation says it was obliged, therefore, to unilaterally nullify the cease-fire pact in direct response to these “threats.”

On February 12, 2013, North Korea delivered more than heated rhetoric when it announced it had conducted an underground nuclear test, the third such detonation in seven years.

The UN Security Council responded endorsed a fourth round of sanctions against Pyongyang, while the United States cut it off the Foreign Trade Bank of Korea from the American financial system.

North Korea amplified its heated rhetoric, vowing to launch a preemptive first-strike nuclear attack against the United States that would engulf Washington in a "sea of fire."

Despite these very serious and disturbing threats, the seemingly unpredictable behavior coming out of Pyongyang seems to follow the iron-bound trajectory of an amusement park roller coaster, which, after one has rode it enough times, the wicked turns and bends no longer carry the same level of white-knuckle fear they originally did.

Meanwhile, the recluse communist country is showing tepid signs of opening up.

Before and after the North conducted its underground tests, it hosted two high-profile US individuals. Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman of Google, met politicians and toured computer research centers in Pyongyang during a surprise four-day trip in January. One month later, just after North Korean the nuclear test, ex-NBA star Dennis Rodman, and three members of the Harlem Globetrotters, paid a visit to the communist country.

So with powerful gestures on the one hand, and warm hospitality for US personalities on the other, one gets the sense that North Korea, while very concerned about the situation on the peninsula, is firing warning desperate warning shots, while not completely confident about its situation.

This is how North Korea works. Threats of war and death and then offers of peace and love, under the condition of course to begin talks on such a thing as soon as some food and oil are sent free of charge. This is how it goes, over and over.

oooh....NK wants a peace treaty, sends a shiver down my spine...yes, yes, yes!!!! USA and SK opposing it? darn those 2 warmongers!

BUT HANG ON A SEC!

A Treaty without terms? UNCONDITIONAL? From the Fat Boy????

ROFL!!!

Sigh.....

There is NO treaty. The only treaty fat boy wants is for USA and Sk grovel on the ground and call him the divine being, and will do ALL his biddings, including no obstruction to nuke weapons.

Who does the fat boy thinks he can fool yet again?

No. No need to be fooled yet again. His call for treaties and the return of execs to the kaesong park and other sweet words are no more than TOTALLY DESPERATE needs for cash and food aid, hiddened deep within hateful rhetorics.

His troops are hungry and the masses turing to canabilism. His Fat arse is now viewed with lip smacking drool as a source of food.

Let him sweat and his people starve.

He should know the PRICE of being belligerant to threaten the world with nuke armageddon and rivers of blood BS. He should be made an example of, so that any other idiot leader that decides not to play by the rule so international law, standard and behaviors sharing our world, would be met with the same response by us mankind - apathy.

No need for USA and SK to jump at his command. Tell him we will take time to consider their offer - 6 months, then another 6 months to make travel and security arrangements to discuss the issue, and another year for congress to decide. Hopefully, long before that, he will be on his knees begging for forgiveness, as his soldiers and masses will be sharpening their knives to feed on the Kim dynasty for lunch.

Play him like a fiddle, instead of being fiddled by him. USA and SK had long been fiddled enough by NK. Time to change the script. After all, he will not give up on nukes for sure and all talks will only be a waste of time, precious time that is needed sorely eslewhere in the socio-political - economic spheres of USA and SK.

If he had not learnt his lesson and decides to threatened nuke launches or even nuke wars, then he should know what to expect - the TOTAL EXTINCTION of the kim dynasty and military within hours. There is no bunker deep enough to hide. If China and Russia is idiotic enough to make noise, just ask them what would they have done if a rogue small state threaten to launch nukes at their own country. Self preservation will shut their belligerant mouths.

So it is a smart move, lets hope the US and South Korea take it serious and end this frozen state of war once and for all. It is in the best interest of everyone.


Devil is in the details. They aren't going to sign a peace treaty just to stabilize the area. No, they want something. And there are plenty of items in that category.... They have a big wishlist.

Question is, how much of it are we willing to grant for another worthless peace of paper? (I say worthless, as NK repeatedly has shown an unwillingness to live up to ANY agreements.....)

Simply put, we called his bluff, now he's scrambling to save face, and still cast us as the bad guys. Something has happened that we aren't being told yet...that's for sure. Anyone know the last time Kim made a public appearance?

It never ends with NK. I can remember sitting next to my step-dad and watching the news and it's the same exact thing, nearly three decades later!.

I don't think it's a good idea, putting young adults with little to no life experience in positions of authority. I just hope his handlers have a tight lease on their pup - because he's quite mad in my opinion.

We can hope that peace comes to that region and their oppressed society is freed from tyrannical rule, we shall see. I should like to see that for the whole world, and burn down corporatism, but we shall see... There is a lot of change in the world I wish for, but what can one inconsequential person do? Spout out my opinion and spread it around like manure? Check, I do that! That's the problem with the world right now. Everyone is always waiting for someone else to get the ball rolling... and those with the influence and resources to get that ball rolling, deflated it - long ago. Hey, they got bread and butter - why should they have to share it with everyone else to?

So where NK is concerned, I shrug - It's been this way now for decades. I'll be surprised and do a happy dance when the people of North Korea finally put their foot down and say - enough is enough. But until that day, all I can do is hope, all they continue to do, is foam at the mouth with a bark worse than their bite.

There could very well be a hidden agenda.

I just kind of hope for the best.

But you are correct, something is not right.

Actually my first thought on the subject was that you make friends with your enemy and then cut their throat when they are not looking.
The optimist in me over ran the pessimist.
The details are something the US would never agree to, and rightfully so as it stands..
But I would love to see a resolution to North and South Korea that does not involve an all out war.

Ill get to your question in a sec , but i got to ask , you got to have ideas on what Un is up too, I would like to see what your thinking , speculation is welcomed on this here thread, none will be put down , might be corrected, that is to say if it is too far out, ill or someone will point out the faults with it.

Say Un ate to much and can not get out of seat, so looking through his desk he found the old peace treaty and wants his name on it not his dads. Fault with this is:

first of all, Un could never eat to much, secondly doubt he can read.

now to your question Has Un been seen in public yes may 27th so says KCNA news he went and seen... well here see for your self, why take my word for it www.kcna.kp... form the link

Kim Jong Un Visits Fishery Station under KPA Unit
There now that he has been seen in public or it could be a double, {that's an other thought } Un is up too something China could have told him make peace or else. But something did happen to make him er DPRK want a Peace Treaty all of a sudden.

Park, Xi likely to adopt statement on 'denuclearization' of N. Korea

Published : 2013-05-30 13:16
Updated : 2013-05-30 13:16
President Park Geun-hye and Chinese President Xi Jinping are likely to adopt a joint declaration that includes the "denuclearization" of North Korea, after their summit talks set for late next month, a diplomatic source in Seoul said Thursday.

South Korea and China have been in the midst of fine-tuning the language to be used in the joint declaration, the source said on the condition of anonymity. Park is scheduled to visit China late next month for her first summit with Xi since taking office in February.

"The North Korean nuclear issue is an important part of the joint declaration," the source said. "There is a high possibility that the word denuclearization will be included in the joint declaration in regard to solving the nuclear issue of North Korea."

If included, it would demonstrate the new Chinese government's willingness to step up efforts to get North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons program, according to the source.

In a meeting with Xi in Beijing last week, a North Korean special envoy, sent by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, said Pyongyang is willing to rejoin the long-stalled six-nation talks on its nuclear weapons program, according to Chinese media reports.

During the meeting, Xi told the North's envoy, Vice Marshal Choe Ryong-hae, that denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula should be achieved no matter how the situation changes.

Nonetheless, strong doubts persist about the North's true intentions after its media conspicuously failed to mention the envoy's remarks made to Xi concerning the six-party talks. The forum, which involves the two Koreas, the U.S., China, Japan and Russia, has been suspended since late 2008.

North Korea quit the six-party forum in a dispute over how to verify steps it was supposed to take to disarm. Early this year, the North conducted its third nuclear test and declared that its nuclear programs are non-negotiable. (Yonhap News)
Yonhap?/ how did i miss that???? oh well one source form there is as good as the other one .. for now .

My personal theory is that since he's run out of bargaining chips, he's "creating" one...the peace treaty. He's going to dangle the carrot, but only if it includes recognition of NK as a nuclear state. Now, he knows, and we know, that isn't going to happen, but that is fine, because the "offer" of a treaty is still going to help him reinforce NK as the "good guy" or so he thinks. He'll then agree to the six party talks (no doubt after some aid is received), where he'll stall yet again, and make even more lame promises, etc. (and of course blaming the US, SK, and China as blocking peace).

And then, he'll do a test months from now, and we'll be right back where we started with in all this mess.

I really hope I'm wrong, but I'm likely not.

If Mr Un is serious in his peace offers, he can make a start by closing down the concentration camps and freeing North Korea. That will show NK is serious about peace. Until then I don't trust one word from NK who has adopted Nazi style concentration camps and killing its own people.


If anything the whole regime should be put on trial for crimes against humanity.
