Abe Group's Moves to Disturb Six-Party Talks under Fire
Pyongyang, August 1 (KCNA) -- Japan is keen to bar the improvement of its relations with the DPRK and derail the six-party talks aimed at settling the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula under the pretext of the "abduction issue." This is based on the calculation of the ultra-nationalist forces of Japan represented by Abe that the issue of access to nukes by the DPRK now in the hostile relationship with Japan can be used as a good pretext for turning it into a military power and its nuclear weaponization.
Rodong Sinmun today observes this in its signed commentary.
It goes on:
The Abe group is busy with its mendicant diplomacy aimed at internationalizing the issue of abduction and putting international pressure upon the DPRK, insisting that it has not yet been solved.
Abe is known to have regarded the "abduction issue" as a bargaining chip for the maintenance of his power and the realization of his political ambition. Some days ago, he let loose the jargon that he would buckle down to the settlement of the "abduction issue" with an "iron will."
The Japanese reactionaries are making much ado about the issue, but it had already found a solution thanks to the sincere efforts of the DPRK.
When the investigation into the issue and its handling came to an end thanks to the sincere efforts of the DPRK, the Japanese reactionaries invented new "victims of abduction" by putting in motion the "society for the investigation into the issues of specified persons reported missing."
Hundreds of people are reported missing in Japan every year and, therefore, the above-said forces may keep concocting new information about "abduction" as long as they are making much fuss about the "abduction issue" while staying in power.
Lurking behind the Abe regime's escalated provocations to the DPRK over the "abduction issue" are a sinister and wicked calculation and purpose.
Japan's "departure from the postwar regime" touted by Abe upon assuming premiership is intended to help Japan get rid of the status of a defeated country subject to military restrictions and establish a war system.
It is Abe's calculation that Japan must avail itself of the "wind caused by the DPRK's access to nukes" in order to lay a military foundation for the "assertive diplomacy" oft-repeated by him and to this end it is necessary to deter the six-party talks from making any progress and buy time.
There will be only complications and difficulties in the way of the talks if Japan continues disturbing the talks, persistently insisting on the already-settled "abduction issue" irrelevant to the mission and purport of the talks.
Japan would be left all alone and meet only frustration if it keeps standing in the way of the talks, making much ado about the "abduction issue."
Day of Korean People's Victory in War Observed in Different Countries
Pyongyang, August 1 (KCNA) -- A meeting and film shows were held in Pakistan, the Czech Republic and Poland from July 22 to 24 on the occasion of the 54th anniversary of the victory of the Korean people in the Fatherland Liberation War.
Secretary General of the Karachi Branch of the Pakistan−Korea Friendship Association Zabed Ansari in his speech at the meeting said that the DPRK has a powerful army which has grown strong to be a-match-for-a hundred army under the care of Kim Jong Il and the might of the unbreakable unity of the leader, the party and the masses.
Chairman of the Union of Polish People's Army Roman Orszewski noted that the army and people of the DPRK under the leadership of President Kim Il Sung dealt at the U.S. imperialists who boasted of being the "strongest" in the world the heaviest blow in history, adding that their victory in the Fatherland Liberation War marked an event to be specially recorded in the world history of wars.
The DPRK is now winning one victory after another in the fierce confrontation with the U.S. because the President and the leader have long built the capacity of the DPRK for self-defence with the Songun idea and Songun leadership.
Vice Dean of the Political Faculty of University of Damascus Saber Ballul in his statement on July 24 on the occasion of the 54th anniversary of the victory of the Korean people in the Fatherland Liberation War said should the United States keep pursuing aggression, oblivious of the lesson taught by history, it will certainly suffer a heavy defeat before the Korean people in the 21st century, too.

Withdrawal of U.S. Forces Urged in S. Korea
Pyongyang, August 1 (KCNA) -- The South Headquarters of the National Alliance for the Country's Reunification reportedly issued a statement on July 27 demanding the withdrawal of the U.S. forces from south Korea and the dissolution of the war "alliance" with the U.S.
The statement recalled that the U.S. has shipped nuclear weapons into south Korea for the last 54 years, thus increasing the danger of a nuclear war and reduced this land to a huge base of aggression forces and a nuclear arsenal according to its strategy for world domination.
It accused the U.S. of deliberately creating an atmosphere of inter-Korean confrontation, hamstringing the efforts to implement the June 15 joint declaration.
The south Korean authorities are driving innocent people to death by stepping up the arms buildup and troop dispatch pursuant to the U.S. policy of war of aggression, the statement noted, stressing:
It is necessary to drive the U.S. forces out of south Korea and scrap the war "alliance" with the U.S. in order to achieve genuine peace on the Korean Peninsula.

Speakers at the meeting said the Korean nation should not forget that the United States and Japan cooked up the criminal "Taft-Katsura Agreement" on July 29, 1905, 102 years ago, through which they worked hand in glove with each other to force the Koreans to experience the tragedy of losing the state power.

Mt. Paektu, Ancestral Mountain of Korea
Pyongyang, August 1 (KCNA) -- Mt. Paektu, a famous mountain of Korea, has been called as an ancestral mountain from olden times.
The mountain, which had been called as Pulham, Tothae, Thaebaek and Paek Mountains, was fixed as Mt. Paektu in the middle of the seventh century. In the light of its geological and geographical view, the mountain constitutes the origin of all the mountains and ranges of Korea.
The 1,470-kilometer long Grand Paektu Range runs from Mt. Paektu to Kujae Peak (Hadong County, South Kyongsang Province) in the coast of the South Sea at the end of Jiri Range, via Mts. Turyu and Thaebaek.
Ri Su Gwang, a pioneer of realism in Korea, wrote in his book "Jibongryusol" that the Paektu Range stretches southward through Chol Pass on Machonryong Range to form Mts. Kumgang, Odae and Thaebaek and ends at Mt. Jiri. He stressed that Paektu Range continues to extend under the sea to link all the islands of Japan and that Mt. Hanna is also part of the range.
Mt. Paektu is a famous and ancestral mountain of Korea. It is well illustrated by a map, appendix to the book "Sinjungdonggukyojisungram" published in the 16th century, the "Taedongyo Map" made by Kim Jong Ho in 1861 and other maps.
The Korean nation has regarded Mt. Paektu as the birthplace of the national state and holy mountain associated with soul of the nation. According to historical records including "Samguksagi", "Kusamguksa" and "Samgukyusa", such orthodox states in Korea as Koguryo, Palhae and Koryo from Kojoson (ancient Korea), the first state, asserted that the state foundation was directly connected with Mt. Paektu and the states were built in the spirit of the mountain.
The Korean ancestors worshiped the mountain generation to generation. It observed a custom to perform a sacrificial rite for the God of Mt. Paektu.
The Koryo people related Koguryo with Mt. Paektu and believed the God of the mountain as guardian of Koryo.
In the period of Ri Dynasty, people began to connect Tangun, founder of Korea, with the mountain.
Tangun tale, which is told in Miyama, Kagosima Prefecture, Japan also tells that Tangun is connected with Mt. Paektu.
Today, Mt. Paektu is widely known as not only the famous and ancestral mountain of Korea but also the sacred place and mountain of the revolution.

Rodong Sinmun reitera su critica a la banda de Abe
Pyongyang, 1 de agosto (ATCC) -- Al tratar de impedir el saneamiento de las relaciones Corea-Japon cuestionando el problema de secuestro, las fuerzas ultranacionalistas del pais isleno pretenden llevar al fracaso las conversaciones a 6 bandas y entorpecer la solucion del problema nuclear de la Peninsula Coreana.
Ademas, esta horda representada por Abe piensa que puede tomar por la justificacion de la conversion en una potencia militar y del armamentismo nuclear de Japon la posesion de armas nucleares por la Republica Popular Democratica de Corea que se halla en relaciones hostiles con este pais isleno.
Adelanta asi el diario Rodong Sinmun en un comentario individual difundido este miercoles y prosigue:
Al insistir en la irresolucion del problema de secuestro, la banda de Abe lanza una intensa campana diplomatica mendicante a fin de internacionalizarlo e imponer una presion internacional a la RPDC por el respecto.
Abe, quien considera ese tema como la carta principal para mantenerse en el poder y alcanzar su ambicion politica, se decidio recientemente a trabajar para su solucion con una "voluntad ferrea".
Pero, ese asunto escandalizado por los reaccionarios islenos ya fue resuelto gracias a los esfuerzos sinceros de la RPDC.
Una vez terminadas la investigacion y la gestion del problema gracias a las medidas magnanimas de la RPDC, esos elementos japoneses inventaron nuevas "victimas de secuestro" por conducto de la llamada "Sociedad de investigacion del problema de los desaparecidos especificos".
Es del todo posible que se inventen uno tras otro en Japon nuevos "datos de secuestrados" ya que en este pais se reportan al ano centenares de desaparecidos y se lanza una acalorada campana en cuanto al "rapto" de las fuerzas ultranacionalistas encabezadas por Abe en el poder.
En el trasfondo de la escalada de estas maniobras provocativas a la RPDC se halla un siniestro y malsano objetivo del ejecutivo de Abe.
Al tomar la posesion de premier, Abe abogo por la "salida de Japon del sistema posbelico" en su intento de sacarlo de la situacion del pais derrotado en la guerra, que se ve restringido en el campo militar, e implantar luego un sistema belico.
Para sentar el cimiento militar de la "diplomacia de criterio propio", de la cual Abe no se cansa de hablar, hay que aprovechar el "viento de posesion de armas nucleares del Norte de Corea" y ganar el tiempo al frenar la marcha de las conversaciones a 6 bandas pretextando el problema de secuestro. He aqui la astuta intencion de aquellos reaccionarios japoneses.
Si Japon sigue cuestionando obstinadamente ese polemico asunto, ya liquidado y desvinculado totalmente a la mision y el proposito de la cita a 6 bandas, solo creara complicaciones y escollos en ella y quedara aislado y perjudicado.
Mas de 150 casos de espionaje aereo contra la RPDC en julio
Pyongyang, 1 de agosto (ATCC) -- Segun una fuente castrense, en el mes recien expirado, se registraron mas de 150 casos de espionaje aereo contra la Republica Popular Democratica de Corea por parte de los aviones estrategicos y tacticos de diferentes misiones de los imperialistas norteamericanos y del ejercito surcoreano.

Entre los dias 24 y el 26, un "E-3", procedente de una base en ultramar, hizo otro tanto sobre los objetivos en las profundidades de la parte Norte, al tiempo que comandaba en el espacio aereo del Sur de Corea las escuadrillas enfrascadas en los ejercicios de apoyo aereo a corta distancia y de asistencia a las tropas terrestres.
Los dias 5 y 18, un "EP-3" sobrevolo las zonas litorales de los Mares Oeste y Este de Corea rastreando los blancos importantes de la parte Norte en la primera linea del frente y los objetivos submarinos en ambos mares.
Para las operaciones militares de este tipo, EE.UU. y el Sur de Corea movilizaron casi todos los dias varios aparatos, especificamente, el dia 13, 8 aviones, los 12 y 27, 6 unidades por cada uno y los 10 y 26, 5 por cada uno.
