Japan Entirely to Blame for Bringing Six-Party Talks to Collapse
Pyongyang, April 28 (KCNA) -- Shortly ago, the Chief Cabinet Secretary of Japan at a press conference pointed an accusing finger at the DPRK, talking about "fulfillment of commitment" according to the September 19 joint statement and "return to talks" and the like. He also asked the countries concerned to exercise their influence, asserting that "the six-party talks are very important" and the international community should "jointly cope with the situation."

Minju Joson Tuesday observes in a signed commentary in this regard:

Lurking behind his outbursts is a sinister intention to mislead the public opinion in a bid to evade their blame for bringing the talks to collapse, shift the responsibility onto the DPRK. Another aim sought by him is to weather the daily deepening political crisis under that pretext and secure a justification for accelerating the nuclear weaponization for reinvasion in real earnest.

Whenever the talks opened, Japan raised issues completely irrelevant to the talks, deliberately throwing obstacles in their way and making desperate efforts to bring the talks to collapse.

When other parties to the talks opted for the implementation of their commitments under the agreement of the six-party talks, only Japan refused to carry out its duty, escalating its economic sanctions against the DPRK. It was none other than Japan which kicked up a racket of intercepting the satellite for peaceful purposes and it was again Japan that behaved more wickedly than any others, asserting that the UN Security Council should "adopt a resolution."

Nevertheless, parties to the six-party talks allowed the UN Security Council to issue a "presidential statement' instead of taking issue with Japan's attitude.

The six-party talks have thus turned into a platform for infringing upon the sovereignty of the DPRK and disarming it. Precisely for this reason the DPRK clarified its stand not to participate in the talks under any circumstances.

The Japanese reactionaries should have apologized for having brought the talks to collapse but they are pulling up the DPRK, deliberately getting on the nerves of its army and people.

They would be well advised to drop their bad habit of groundlessly accusing others, mindful of what will happen to them should it touch off the resentment of the army and the people of the DPRK against Japan.

If they continue behaving impertinently, going against the trend of the times, they will have to pay dearly for it.
