Diplomatic, Security Chief of Chongwadae Accused of Slandering DPRK
| Pyongyang, January 10 (KCNA) -- Chon Yong U, chief for diplomacy and security of Chongwadae of south Korea, said at an interview with Kukje Shinmun on Jan. 3 that "the May 24 step has given impact on future and destiny of the north."
He even defamed the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK, talking about "its contingency".
A bylined commentary of Minju Joson Thursday dismisses Chon's reckless remarks as an open politically-motivated provocation as he irritated and insulted the DPRK by distorting facts.
The commentary brands Chon as a lunatic engrossed in confrontation with fellow countrymen because he talked nonsense about "disabling" and "existence and future" under the signboard of "May 24 step" aimed at escalating confrontation with fellow countrymen.
The "May 24 step" dealt a heavy blow at south Korean businesses, says the commentary, adding:
The companies that had benefited from north-south economic cooperation went bankrupt one after another, saddled with huge amounts of debt after the "step" took effect.
It is natural for the south Korean people to call for the lifting of the traitorous "step". It is the view of south Korean economic experts that it is possible to revive the crisis-ridden economy in south Korea only when the "May 24 step" is lifted.
Chon's malignant vituperation against the DPRK was prompted by a wicked plot to push the north-south relations to an uncontrollable phase.
It is Chon's foolish calculation that only when the north-south relations further deteriorate, will the next ruling forces pursue confrontation with fellow countrymen and the present rulers be able to escape imprisonment after their ouster.
Such imbecile as Chon Yong U will have to pay for his whole string of invectives against the DPRK.
