  The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK),the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE),the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula (BSCPRKP)  issued a statement in support of the press statement of the DPRK Foreign Ministry concerning the latest sanctions imposed by the US and the threats made by Trump against the DPRK ;
   Since the beginning of the New Year the DPRK has made strenuous efforts to reduce tension and create a peaceful atmosphere on the Korean peninsula .Long-awaited inter-Korean dialogue and cooperation have been realized and the Olympics took place successfully by the inter-Korean collaboration. This has been applauded by the people of the world.
 However the reactionary Trump clique has imposed more draconian sanctions on People's Korea , even going as far to talk about intercepting DPRK vessels on the high seas  which would be an act of piracy and contrary to international law .
  Worse still Trump even said that if the sanctions do not work (which of course they wont) a "very rough phase 2" ,which means military action , will be implemented. This is a most brazen threat . Trump is threatening a genocidal war against the entire Korean nation.
  The DPRK developed the self-defensive nuclear deterrent in order to defend itself against such threats from the US imperialists.
  The DPRK has sternly declared that any kind of blockade against will be an act of war . The DPRK Foreign Ministry sternly warns that the Korean people will take resolute counter-actions against the US imperialists should they try to invoke 'phase two'.
 The US will be entirely responsible if a war breaks out on the Korean peninsula !
HANDS OFF THE DPRK !
NO TO SANCTIONS, NO TO BLOCKADES !

As part of their efforts to undermine inter-Korean reconciliation and also to slander the socialist system of the DPRK thereby smearing the dignity of the DPRK and injuring its prestige
they have hurled abuse at the DPRK and its supreme leadership.
 In particular Pence the vice president of the US has let loose a string of slanders .Pence declared that the so-called ' strategic patience is over ' . He viciously slandered the people's government of the DPRK and even made dark and abusive insinuations about the  first vice department director of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, who attended the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in south Korea as part of a goodwill mission.
  No one should pardon the slanders of the ignorant Yankee imperialists against the people-centred socialist system of the DPRK and the supreme leadership of the DPRK . It is the US where human rights are violated and where poverty and racism reign supreme.The US and the Trump group has no place to slander the DPRK .
  We support the resolve of the Korean people , as manifested by the statement of the KAPPC to , settle accounts with those slandering the social system and supreme leadership of the DPRK.

KAPPC Urges Japanese Authorities to Prevent Terrorism against Chongryon and Koreans in Japan

Pyongyang, February 25 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee (KAPPC) Sunday issued a statement as regards the fact that in recent days the Japanese authorities and right-wing reactionaries are getting very serious in their hysteria against our Republic and the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon).

Around 03:50, Feb. 23 two Japanese right-wingers with arms committed the heinous terrorist crime, firing several bullets at the hall in which Chongryon headquarters.

The Chongryon Central Standing Committee speaks for the dignity, right and interests of Chongryon organizations and Koreans in Japan and is playing the role as a diplomatic mission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea under the present situation that the diplomatic ties have not been established between the DPRK and Japan.

The statement said that from the formation of Chongryon up to this date the successive Japanese governments and right-wing reactionaries have made all sorts of misdeeds against Chongryon organizations and Koreans in Japan, but they did not fire at the Central Hall of Chongryon, the inviolable area in which the DPRK's sovereignty is exercised.

It went on:

The Japanese right-wing gangsters' terrorism against the Central Hall of Chongryon is not merely an accident but a deliberate politically-motivated provocation and heinous crime against the DPRK and Chongryon committed by the Japanese reactionaries with the sinister intention to extremely strain the situation on the Korean peninsula and revive militarism and realize their old dream of the "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere" taking advantage of it.

The Japanese authorities are misleading public opinion as if the recent incident happened by an individual body and person while investigating the criminals arrested but it is little short of a clumsy excuse to cover up their sinister intention.

It is an open challenge to the DPRK and a prelude to overall crackdown upon Chongryon that the Japanese authorities made right-wing gangsters fire at the hall, not content with making desperate efforts to realize their impossible pipedream.

The more desperately the Japanese reactionaries go in their moves against the DPRK and Chongryon, the more clearly they reveal their despicable true color as disturber of peace and war servant before the world.

The Japanese authorities would be well advised to disclose the background and truth behind the shooting spree to the end, mete out a stern punishment to the chief culprits and accomplices and take a special measure to prevent the reoccurrence of violent crime and terrorism against Chongryon and Koreans in Japan. -0-

U.S. Hit for Bringing Clouds of War to Hang over Korean Peninsula

Pyongyang, February 25 (KCNA) -- The spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK issued the following press statement on Sunday:

Respected Supreme Leader Comrade Kim Jong Un affirmed his will in his New Year Address to make strenuous efforts to improve inter-Korean relations, create a peaceful environment on the Korean peninsula and ensure a successful holding of Phyongchang Winter Olympics.

Thanks to our supreme leadership's noble love for the nation and strong determination for peace, long-awaited inter-Korean dialogue and cooperation have been realized and the Olympics took place successfully by the inter-Korean collaboration.

However, on the eve of closing of the Olympics, United States is running amok to bring another dark cloud of confrontation and war over the Korean peninsula by announcing enormous sanctions against the DPRK.

Trump has announced new sanctions, the core of which is to completely block the DPRK's maritime trade with other countries, and he openly threatened us by making wild remarks that if the said sanctions do not work, "very rough phase 2" will be operated.

Trump group's attempt itself to threaten us by such sanctions or wild remarks only reveals its ignorance about us.

We came to possess nuclear weapons, the treasured sword of justice, in order to defend ourselves from such threats from the United States.

As we have stated on numerous occasions, we will consider any type of blockade an act of war against us, and if U.S. has indeed the guts to confront us in "rough" manner, we will not necessarily take the trouble to stop it.

If U.S. ignores all of our sincere efforts for improving inter-Korean relations and for preserving peace and stability on the Korean peninsula, as desired by the nation, and doggedly persists instead in provocation against us, we will have a tight grip on U.S. and deal with it with our own way of counteraction, no matter how rough and hysterical the U.S. moves are.

If tension on the Korean peninsula escalates into a brink of war due to the U.S. reckless actions, all the catastrophic consequences resulting therefrom will be borne by the United States. -0-

U.S. Blasted for Hurling Stream of Abuse

Pyongyang, February 25 (KCNA) -- The Trump group is going frantic with the anti-DPRK smear campaign, much upset by the daily-increasing climate of the improvement of inter-Korean ties.

U.S. Vice-President Pence said at a conservative group meeting in Maryland State on Feb. 23 that an era of strategic patience for the DPRK ended and the U.S. would show its decisive will until the DPRK stops threatening the U.S. and its allies and totally abandons the nuclear and missile program.

What is more intolerable is that he dared to describe the first vice department director of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, who attended the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in south Korea as a congratulatory mission, as "center of vicious regime" or "pillar of oppressive regime".

In this regard, a spokesman for the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee on Feb. 24 issued a statement condemning Pence's disgraceful behavior as an act of rogue without an equal in the world.

Unpardonable are that Pence dared to defame the inviolable DPRK government, terming it "dictatorial regime", and absurdly slandered our congratulatory missions including the first vice department director of the WPK Central Committee, the statement said, adding:

It is the mettle of our army and people sharing their destinies with their leader and their social system to find out and punish without mercy those insulting the dignity of the supreme leadership and the social system of the DPRK no matter whoever and wherever they are.

Pence will have a wearing time, witnessing what quagmire his crazy remarks threw the U.S. and himself into.

Trump, who is taking such bete noire as Pence under his wings, should be well aware that we will never beg for dialogue in any case and, particularly, have no dealings with those viciously slandering the dignity of our supreme leadership and government.

We will never have face-to-face talks with them even after 100 years or 200 years. This is neither an empty talk nor any threat.

The U.S. will have to pay dearly for stupid and wild vituperation. -0-
