KCNA: "It should be well aware that it will be sunk by the waves of the angry public like the 'Park Geun Hye ship in distress' if it swims against the national trend of peace and reunification, failing to face up to the situation."
KCNA: "No faction can ever stand above the nationIf one is a politician, one should be faithful to the historic great cause of the reconciliation and unity of the nation and peace and prosperity rather than say this or that over conservatism and progress."
KCNA: "The ultra-right conservatives including Hong Jun Phyo are talking such nonsense every day as 'the rarest camouflaged peace show'so as to run down the Panmunjom summit and April 27 declaration and play down their meaning and success."
KCNA: "The position of Japan can never improve, finding fault with the historic Panmunjom summit and talks and the Panmunjom declaration. Japan standing alone at the crossroads of its life would be well advised to behave itself if it wants a proper treatment."
KCNA: "It is disgusting for Japanese reactionaries to throw cold water on the reunification fever on the Korean peninsula, revealing their sinister nature, far from clapping hands on the neighbor's auspicious event."

KCNA lashes out at Japan ahead of this week's trilateral Japan-China-ROK trilateral meeting; editorial specifically calls out PM Abe's requests for "detailed actions for the denuclearization."
KCNA: "Rate of supporting the Abe Cabinet dropped into 26.7 percent for being involved in high-profile graft revealed one after anotherMany Japanese are taking to street in protest against AbeJapan had better mind its own plight, instead of going against the trend of times."
KCNA: "Japan's loud voice reflects its complicated thought of being marginalized in the settlement of the dialogue-centered issue of the Korean peninsulait is very pitiful to see Japan left alone despite the rapidly changing situation in Northeast Asia."
KCNA: "Japan tries to show a 'hard-line' attitude toward the DPRK. However, this is no more than a stupid last-ditch effort to give a face-lift to its lost image after being excluded fromthe Korean peninsula. Actually, 'passing Japan' has become a hot topicacross the world."
KCNA: "Japan should ponder over its behavior and feel ashamed of itself under the present developing situation where a dramatic turn is being made. Its awful behavioronly provokes a side-splitting laughter of the world public."
KCNA: "So long as there is such a party that has inveterate repugnancy towards the fellow countrymen in the north and is keen on prolonging its remaining days through the confrontation with fellow countrymen, it is notpossible to realize the national reconciliation and unity."
KCNA: "The group of the 'Liberal Korea Party' including Hong Jun Phyo is hurling a heap of abuses, which is hysterics, regarding the success in the summit meeting as a thorn in their flesh."
KCNA: "There will be noobstacles insurmountable if the north and the south hold their hands with each other on the principle of national independence. The Panmunjom declaration has the idea of By Our Nation Itself and the principle of national independence as its core."
KCNA: "The issue of national reunification can never be settled if one depends on outsiders, the chief architect of the Korean division and disturber of the reunification. If the north and the south reject the outsiders and pool their efforts, they can smoothly settle all issues"
KCNA: "National reunification is, in essence, the cause of reconnecting the blood vessel of the Korean nation which was severed into the north and the south by the outsiders and the one of achieving the sovereignty throughout the nation."
KCNA: "Thanks to his strong grit, bold decision and ardent love for the nation and outstanding and tested guidance, the improvement of the north-south relationshave been given steady continuity despite the vicious obstructions of the anti-reunification forces."
KCNA: "This is the manifestation of the lofty loyalty, firm will and noble patriotism of the peerlessly great man to certainly realize the national reunification, lifetime desire and behests of the great leaders."
KCNA: "Kim Jong Un advanced a line of effecting a great change in the inter-Korean relations in his historic New Year Address with a plan for bringing a thaw infrozen north-south relations and thus glorifying this year as a year of events to be recorded in the national history"
KCNA: "The Panmunjom summit meeting and talks and the adoption of the April 27 declaration are an event to be recorded in the national history thanks to the extraordinary guidance of the respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un."
: "We're doing very well on, as you know, North Korea We have a meeting set up, we have the location all done, we have the time and place all finished now."
KCNA: "This act cannot be construed otherwise than a dangerous attempt to ruin the hardly-won atmosphere of dialogue and bring the situation back to square one."
KCNA: "The U.S. is deliberately provoking the DPRK at the time when the situation on the Korean peninsula is moving toward peace and reconciliation thanks to the historic north-south summit and the Panmunjom Declaration."
KCNA: "The U.S. is misleading the public opinion, arguing as if the DPRK's clarification of its intention for denuclearization of the Korean peninsula made through the Panmunjom Declaration adopted at the historic north-south summit is the result of so-called sanctions."
KCNA: "Neither the improved inter-Korean relations nor peace and prosperity can be achieved as the ultra-right conservative group including the 'Liberal Korea Party' steeped in inveterate repugnancy toward fellow countrymen to the marrow."
KCNA: "It is the disgrace of the nation that there is such group as human scum still within the Korean nation at a time when allKoreans should turn out in the efforts for carrying out the historic Panmunjom declaration with their concerted efforts and advance toward peace."
