KCNA: "Trickery and dog-eat-dog relations for power, means for accumulating wealth, are a commonplace event in capitalist political circles. Murder, rape, abduction, human trafficking, theft and swindle are committed for money, individual honor and luxury."

KCNA: "'The interests of an individual are sacred and inviolable' and 'I must kill you to live' are the way of thinking and viewpoint of people corrupted by the bourgeois morality based on the extreme individualism in capitalist society."

KCNA: "It is just the conservative group of south Korea, a group of traitors, which always put a brake on the efforts for improving the north-south relationswhenever a dramatic change was witnessed in the relations thanks to the proactive measures and efforts by the DPRK."

KCNA: "The south Korea-Japan agreement on protecting military intelligence is a criminal product traitor Park Geun Hye and the Abe group made under the pretext of 'threat from the north'The agreement should be promptly abrogated in view ofthe Panmunjom Declaration."

KCNA: "Now the Korean nation and the whole world hope that the Panmunjom Declaration on Peace, Prosperity and Reunification of Korean Peninsula would be implemented as early as possible. But, a number of hurdles still lie in the way for implementing the declaration."

KCNA: "If the U.S. sincerely hopes for the talks, it should stop the acts of threatening its dialogue partner by force. It is high time the U.S. behaved properly, clearly seeing what is profitable for it."
KCNA: "The world people say that the U.S. persists in staging the joint military drills as it does not hope for the detente on the Korean peninsula and has no interest in reconciliation with the DPRK."
KCNA: "At present the issue of the joint military exercises serves as a touchstone showing whether the U.S. wants peace or pursues war."
KCNA: "When the DPRK and the U.S. are coming for face-to-face dialogue with the will to solve the pending issues, it is unnecessary for the U.S. to stage the joint military exercises, the main root cause of aggravating tension and bringing nuclear war to the Korean peninsula."
KCNA: "The U.S. maneuvers which have been conducted in south Korea every year are the root cause of disturbing the peace and stability on the Korean peninsula as they are staged under the simulated conditions of a preemptive attack and total war against the DPRK."
KCNA: "Such provocative remarks are intolerable mockery of the dialogue partner. Rodong Sinmun Tuesday says this in a commentary."
KCNA: "Meanwhile, American policy makers spit out unreasonable remarks, unsuited to the atmosphere of dialogue, that the military option on the DPRK has never been ruled out and that there will be no guarantee of the social system if the DPRK does not give up nukes."
KCNA: "The U.S. Department of Defence and the White House vociferate that the U.S.-south Korea joint military exercises are 'defensive' ones, the 'annual' joint military drills would continue and their scale would not be reduced."

KCNA: "The DPRK is advancing along the path taken by itself according to its timetable no matter whatever others may say and wherever wind may blow from in order to implement the decision of the Third Plenary Meeting of the Seventh Central Committee of the WPK."
KCNA: "The world, stunned by the DPRK's declaration on dismantling the nuclear test ground, calling it a bold decision, is admiring its practice in which the transparency was fully shown."
KCNA: "The DPRK permitted on-site coverage by the international press corps, to say nothing of domestic media, to show the transparency of the dismantlement of the nuclear test ground, and took technical measures for it."
KCNA: "The DPRK's active and bold measures are, in a nutshell, part of the efforts for implementing the decision of the Third Plenary Meeting of the Seventh Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea."
