Pueblo Can Never Be Sent Back to U.S.: Rodong Sinmun
Pyongyang, February 20 (KCNA) -- Days ago, the assembly of Colorado State which has a village called Pueblo adopted a resolution demanding the return of the spy ship Pueblo.

The resolution was distributed to U.S. President Obama, the president of the Senate, the speaker of the House of Representatives and the governor of Colorado State. It reportedly calls for observing January 23, the day when the spy ship was seized, as "day of ship Pueblo" every year and "praising the sacrificing spirit" of the then crewmen and persistently demanding its return.

Rodong Sinmun Saturday says in a commentary in this regard:

It is very ridiculous for the U.S. to insist on the return of the ship which was captured by seamen of the Korean People's Army while conducting all sorts of despicable espionage to invade the inviolable DPRK nearly half a century ago. Great irony is that it is kicking up a row over the issue of the captured spy ship.

No matter what noisy rackets the U.S. may kick up in demand of the return of the ship, they would get it nowhere.

The U.S. more frequent "commemorations" of the day of ship Pueblo would bring bitterer sense of shame and humiliation to it.

The electronic spying equipment, secret documents and the ship Pueblo can never be sent back as they were captured while conducting espionage in territorial waters of the DPRK.

Those things belong to the victors.

The ship Pueblo is on display in Pyongyang to tell the present and future generations and world people that it is a U.S. armed spy ship captured by seamen of the KPA.

The DPRK will as ever mercilessly beat back those encroaching upon its sovereignty even a bit to protect the dignity of Juche Korea.
