Poor Excuse of Those Who Bedeviled Inter-Korean Relations under Fire
Pyongyang, November 17 (KCNA) -- The Lee Myung Bak group have driven the inter-Korean relations into the present grave phase. Nevertheless, they are talking a lot about the issue of north-south dialogue. This is nothing but hypocrisy as it is aimed at evading their responsibility for the above-said crime.

Rodong Sinmun Monday says this in a signed commentary.

It goes on:

Needless to say, such tragic developments as the deadlocked north-south dialogue are attributable to traitor Lee Myung Bak's treacherous "policy toward the north" and the frantic moves of his group to scuttle dialogue.

The group of traitors are raising a hue and cry over the north's "rejection of their proposal for dialogue" and the like. This is no more than shameless remarks intended to evade their responsibility for having pushed the inter-Korean relations to the present catastrophic crisis and a poor excuse to mislead the public opinion at home and abroad.

The Lee group are busy letting loose a spate of vituperations, misjudging the DPRK's will for dialogue and vociferating about what they called "interests." This behavior clearly reveals once again their despicable true colors as political charlatans and a group of traitors who know nothing but money as they take only profits and losses into account like merchants, utterly indifferent to the issue of the inter-Korean relations, the issue of the nation's destiny.

That is why the Lee group pretend to be interested in the issue of the inter-Korean relations, becoming more vocal about "dialogue" and "engagement" than ever before. What they utter is nothing but sheer sophism to divert elsewhere domestic and foreign public criticism of them and tide over their ruling crisis.

It is the steadfast stand of the whole nation that nothing can be expected from this traitorous regime.
