KCNA Blasts American Lawmakers' Outbursts
Pyongyang, December 22 (KCNA) -- Ros-Lehtinen, member of the U.S. House of Representatives, called for taking "strong counteraction" and relisting the DPRK as a "sponsor of terrorism," while terming it a "rogue regime".
This is intolerable as it is malignant vituperation against the dignified DPRK and its system.
Ros, man representing the U.S. conservative hard-liners, is human scum as he earned ill-fame as an anti-communist fanatic.
He is a political illiterate ignorant of the background against which the nuclear issue cropped up on the Korean Peninsula and the processes to settle it.
It is natural to hear such rubbish from him.
What should not go unnoticed, however, is that he let loose vituperation against the DPRK soon after he became chairman of the House International Relations Committee.
It is quite clear that he would escalate the anti-DPRK campaign in Congress and political arena.
In fact, such moves have come to the fore.
Senator John McCain said that he would make new Congress commencing its work next year immediately relist the DPRK as a "state sponsor of terrorism" and apply financial and other sanctions against it.
The U.S. State Department, echoing the outpourings of conservative forces, clarified that it would tighten sanctions against illegal financial activities of the DPRK in a recent four-year diplomatic progress review report.
The above-said reckless remarks made by the U.S. against the DPRK, raising a hue and cry over the military clash on Yonphyong Island and its nuclear activities for peaceful purposes are despicable conspiratorial acts which can be committed only by those who stoop to any infamy to meet their political and military purposes.
It was not "a sort of reward" granted to the DPRK that the preceding U.S. administration delisted the DPRK as a "sponsor of terrorism." It was done on the principle of "action for action" stipulated in the September 19 joint statement on the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
No one has a ground to say this or that about it.
The U.S. conservative hardliners, however, are crying out for relisting the DPRK as a "state sponsor of terrorism". This is a despicable bid to check the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
The army and people of the DPRK will never pardon Ros and his group.
