Lee Myung Bak Group and Other Hostile Forces Accused of Smear Campaign over DPRK's Satellite Launch
| Pyongyang, May 10 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea Thursday gave the following answer to the question put by KCNA as regards the fact that the Lee Myung Bak group of south Korea and other hostile forces recently pulled up the DPRK over expense for satellite launch:
The Lee group of traitors was reported to have impudently pulled up the DPRK over its satellite launch, etc. recently, claiming a huge amount of money might be spent for the missile launch and that amount of money would be enough to buy a lot of food.
Traitor Lee Myung Bak invited even primary school children to Chongwadae and chided the north "for spending a lot of money for missile launch."
Chon Yong U, presidential secretary for diplomacy and security of Chongwadae, Ryu U Ik, minister of Unification, and other yes men of Lee vied with each other to join in the anti-DPRK smear campaign.
The U.S. was so ridiculous as to urge the DPRK to give up nuclear development and rocket launch and improve the people's living standard as part of the anti-DPRK smear campaign over its moves to bolster its nuclear deterrence and push forward its plan for space development for peaceful purposes. There are some persons who blindly echo its rhetoric.
This is an intolerable insult to the dignity and sovereignty of the DPRK and a grave provocation and mockery of its army and people.
The hostile forces are noisily trumpeting that the DPRK would receive any reward in return for dismantling nukes and stopping the missile launch.
They even claim that some other countries may launch the DPRK's satellites.
Such allurement may work on others but not on the DPRK.
The people of the DPRK will never allow their dignity and sovereignty to be bartered for a huge amount of money or something else.
It is preposterous, indeed, for the U.S. to talk about someone's expense as it tops the world list of military spending.
The above-said smear campaign kicked off by the Lee group and the U.S. is nothing but the last-ditch effort of those frightened by the Songun power of the DPRK and a foolish attempt to break its single-minded unity.
No matter what high expense the army and people of the DPRK have to cover, they will further bolster its defence capability including nuclear deterrence to firmly protect its dignity and sovereignty.
