Press Statement of Vice Department Director of C.C., WPK Kim Yo Jong

Pyongyang, August 19 (KCNA) -- Kim Yo Jong, vice department director of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), released the following press statement "Don't have an absurd dream" on August 18:

It would have been more favorable for his image to shut his mouth, rather than talking nonsense as he had nothing better to say.

I am talking about Yoon Suk Yeol's "commemorative speech marking August 15".

In his situation where he is losing the public support, it would have been better if he had never presented himself on that occasion.

I'm only saying this today because the south seems to be very eager to know of our reaction and not because I'm concerned of Yoon's situation, as even a mere child would know.

If he had really wanted to take the platform, I'm curious to know how much effort he had put in to his speech to be unable to say anything that would save his dignity.

This time, Yoon focused on clamoring about "a course of building a free country by fighting against communist forces" and "defending the free world by facing against communist invasion" and inciting confrontation between systems.

Although I'm sorry to say this, dogs will always bark, as a pup or an adult, and the same goes for the one with the title of "president".

The most repulsive point was when he recited absurd words impertinently of proposing us a "bold and broad-based plan" to radically improve the economy and public welfare if we would stop nuclear development and turn towards substantial denuclearization.

With the person who had at one time pretended to be "driver", questioning the public, gone, another who also lives in his own world has appeared to sit upon the throne.

Although he seemed to have gone through a lot of troubles after pretending to have a plan on improving the north-south relations during his "inaugural address" in May and then explaining it to the U.S. and neighboring countries to explain himself and asking for understanding and support for it, the "plan" he had laid down this time is truly absurd.

All the ridiculous remarks uttered by the so-called "president" really make the south look marvelous only.

Is a certain Yoon the only person who could be elected as "president"?

"Bold plan?"

In a word, I can explain why it is absurd.

His "bold plan" is the height of absurdity as it is an impracticable one to create mulberry fields in the dark blue ocean.

He disregarded the other party's attitude towards the plan and the comments which will be made on it by those grasping the situation of the inter-Korean ties. I could not but be stunned by his "bravery" and excessive ignorance

I'd love to give some advices.

The "bold plan" is not a new one, but a replica of "denuclearization, opening and 3 000" raised by traitor Lee Myung Bak 10-odd years ago only to be forsaken as a product of the confrontation with fellow countrymen, far from attracting the attention of world people.

The fact that he copied the policy towards the north, thrown into the dustbin of history, and called it "bold plan" shows that he is really foolish.

I'm not sure that he knows his assumption "if the north took a measure for denuclearization" was a wrong prerequisite.

All the predecessors in the south and even their master the U.S. failed to "make the north abandon nukes", but he uttered pipedream-like remarks, which made him look so miserable as we wondered why he quickly read the text that must be wrongly written, not knowing what it means.

All can not be bartered. To think that the plan to barter "economic cooperation" for our honor, nukes, is the great dream, hope and plan of Yoon, we came to realize that he is really simple and still childish.

He, who came to power, would take two or three years to know well the law of the world and the situation while working hard.

No one barters its destiny for corn cake.

Bitter contempt is what we will only show those spinning a pipedream to succeed in making us abandon our nukes if they pay more stakes.

It would be advisable to mind their own business if they can find time to spare, not talking about the north-south issue.

They would have no time to talk about someone's "economy" and improvement of "people's livelihood" since they may be ousted anytime for their spoiled economy and public welfare.

Those villains seriously encroaching on our security circumstance by continuing to infiltrate dirty wastes into our territory talk about "food supply" and "medical assistance" to inhabitants in the north. Such deeds will only incite our people's surging hatred and wrath.

A knave who talks about "bold plan" today and stages anti-north war exercises tomorrow is none other than "mastermind" Yoon Suk Yeol.

It is our earnest desire to live without awareness of each other.

Before evaluating the south Korean authorities' "policy toward the north", we don't like Yoon Suk Yeol himself.

Though he may knock at the door with what large plan in the future as his "bold plan" does not work, we make it clear that we will not sit face to face with him.

It would be good for Yoon Suk Yeol to ponder over what serious threat the reckless confrontational remarks his hirelings have made irregularly and ignorantly will bring.

Yoon should not forget our advice even a moment that it would be good never to stand face to face with us.

In addition, we made it clear that the previous day's weapon test was conducted on the "Kumsong Bridge" in Anju City of South Phyongan Province, not the Onchon area the south Korean authorities announced rashly and talkatively.

I am curious to know why those always talking about the pursuit surveillance and full preparedness under the close cooperation between south Korea and U.S. could not indicate the launching time and place properly and why they do not open to the public data on the weapon system.

If the data and flight trajectory are known, the south will be so bewildered and afraid. And it will be a thing worthy of seeing how they will explain about it before their people. -0- (Juche111.8.19.)
