PYONGYANG, July 20 (Itar-Tass) — A spokesman for the North Korean Foreign Ministry demanded on Friday that the United States give up its hostile policy against Pyongyang. He said that the complicity of U.S. security services to South Korea’s subversive plans targeted against the DPRK were the best manifestation of America’s hostile policy.
He recalled that the North Korean state security service had recently arrested a criminal who had intended to blow up a statue of one of the North Korean leaders.
Judging from his confessionary statements, the operation “was planned by South Korean security agents jointly with their American colleagues. The United States is pursuing this policy with an aim to undermine the unity of the people and overthrow the existing social system in North Korea,” the North Korean Foreign Ministry said.
These circumstances are forcing North Korea “to revise its approach to its nuclear program,” the North Korean diplomat said. He added that it would be impossible to secure a durable and stable peace on the Korean peninsula, if the United States went ahead with its hostile policy toward Pyongyang.
Earlier this month, the North Korean Foreign Ministry said that North Korea was not planning any new nuclear tests so far.
