Kim/Trump summit uncertain.
PYONGYANG, North Korea (PNN) - May 16, 2018 - Pyongyang canceled May 16 high-level inter-Korean talks in response to provocative Fascist Police States of Amerika/South Korean military exercises, violating the recent Panmunjom Declaration's letter and spirit. On Tuesday, a North Korean KCNA media report said the following:
“This exercise targeting us, which is being carried out across South Korea and targeting us, is a flagrant challenge to the Panmunjom Declaration and an intentional military provocation running counter to the positive political development on the Korean Peninsula. The (FPSA) will also have to undertake careful deliberations about the fate of the planned North Korea-(FPSA) summit in light of this provocative military ruckus jointly conducted with the South Korean authorities.”
Provisions of the inter-Korean Panmunjom Declaration include the following:
- alleviating longstanding bilateral military tension to curb the threat of war on the peninsula;
- ceasing hostile actions by both sides against each other, including transformation of the DMZ into a peace zone;
- establishing a permanent peninsula peace regime, ending an uneasy armistice, and formally ending the Korean War;
- concluding a Non-Aggression Agreement between both sides;
- beginning a process of phased disarmament, providing tensions between both countries ease, along with achieving military confidence-building progress.
Pyongyang justifiably believes FPSA/South Korean military exercises are rehearsals for war on the North.
The Panmunjom Declaration was an important step in the right direction, yet a long way from achieving peace and stability on the peninsula because Washington has rejected normalized relations with the PPRK since the late 1940s.
Earlier initiatives to change things failed when less extremist FPSA regimes were in power.
World peace and stability are virtually off the table with hard-line neocons in charge of FPSA President Donald Trump's geopolitical agenda, targeting all sovereign independent countries for regime change, a FPSA imperial objective long before his election.
High-level May 16 inter-Korean talks were scheduled to discuss implementation of what both countries agreed on last month in summit talks.
On Wednesday, DPRK First Deputy Foreign Minister Kim Kye-gwan said, “(W)e will not be interested in talks anymore if (the Trump regime) only tries to push us unilaterally into a corner and force us to give up nukes. It would be inevitable to reconsider whether to respond to the upcoming summit with the (FPSA).”
North Korea's minister criticized FPSA unilateral demands, calling them a way to force the destiny of the collapsed Libya and Iraq to our dignified state.
Endless violence and chaos followed FPSA-led war on both countries, devastation the DPKR experienced from Washington's aggression in the early 1950s, and developing nukes as a deterrent to prevent another war on the peninsula.
Minister Kim said he doubt(s) whether the FPSA really wants sound dialogue and negotiation.
In dealings with other countries, Washington demands - especially sovereign independent ones - most often breaching agreements made, JCPOA pullout the latest example, proving again the FPSA can never be trusted.
If DPRK/FPSA summit talks take place in mid-June as scheduled, chances for ending FPSA hostility toward the North are slim at best - and that’s being generous.
Replacing all sovereign independent governments with pro-Western vassal ones is part of Washington's aim for global hegemony; naked aggression and color revolutions its favored strategies.
Amerika's long history of deal breaking and determination to dominate other nations is the greatest obstacle to peace and stability on the peninsula, and everywhere else.
