U.S. Condemned for Obstructing Improvement of Inter-Korean Relations

  The National Reunification Institute on Feb. 14 made public an indictment slamming how the United States has obstructed the improvement of the north-south relations and the peace and the reunification of the Korean Peninsula in every way and laying bare the true colors.

  The indictment cited facts that the U.S. has dampened the reconciliation and unity of the Korean nation and trampled on the desire for the reunification through impudent interference and undisguised pressure since it occupied south Korea.

  Such moves have reached an extreme phase since Trump came to power, the indictment says, and goes on:

  When the pro-democracy and pro-reform forces came to power in south Korea after Park Geun Hye was ousted from power as she was hell-bent on pro-U.S. actions and confrontation with the fellow countrymen of the north, Trump told the regime that he would toughly deal with the north issue, the south-north summit is possible under special conditions only and dialogue for dialogue is not allowed.

  U.S. Secretary of State Tillerson, U.S. Secretary of Defense Mattis, National Security Adviser of the White House McMaster and other U.S. VIPs flew into Seoul one on the heels of the other and talked nonsense that it is of the most urgent necessity for the north to show the will to dismantle its nukes first and told the south Korean authorities not to improve the relations with the north without due consideration.

  When this year has witnessed a dramatic reconciliation phase thanks to the proactive measure and sincere efforts of the DPRK, Trump said that he supported the north-south dialogue 100 percent for the fear of criticism by the public at home and abroad but cried out for persistently enforcing the policy of the maximum pressure on the north and wooed his underlings to pressurize the south Korean authorities.

  The U.S. threw a serious roadblock in the way of improving the inter-Korean ties and the national reunification by escalating the tension on the Korean Peninsula through ceaseless arms build-up and frantic aggression war rackets against the north.

  Last year Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military maneuvers were staged for two months. Mobilized in the exercises were hundreds of thousands of troops and huge strategic assets and even U.S. special forces enough to carry out a war.

  The drills were unprecedented in their military strength, scale, intensity and period.

  Not content with spitting out such warlike remarks as "fire and fury" and "the calm before the storm", Trump unhesitatingly appeared on the UN forum to say that he would totally destroy tens of millions of Korean people.

  Right after the dramatic climate of reconciliation has been created between the north and the south and the Winter Olympics was held in south Korea this year, the Trump group announced they would immediately resume Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises after the Olympics, even though they unwillingly postponed the exercises.

  Noting that the U.S. has persistently resorted to the despicable moves of disturbing reconciliation, cooperation and exchange between the north and the south through vicious smear campaign, sanctions and pressure upon the DPRK, the indictment goes on:

  The U.S. organized anti-DPRK bodies such as "Citizens Alliance for Human Rights in North Korea" and "Network for Democratization of North Korea" on a large scale and spent a huge amount of money for them in a bid to put the north-south confrontation to the extremes for 9 years after the conservative group took the power in south Korea.

  Trump, incumbent president of the U.S., imprudently behaved, vociferating about "settlement of the nuclear issue of the north" after his assumption of office only to experience a hot agony of shame due to the DPRK's step of boosting up self-defensive nuclear force. Then he got frantic with the anti-DPRK moves, labeling the DPRK as "human rights abuser" with the mobilization of "defectors from the north" under the pretence of the worn-out "human rights issue of the north".

  Historically the U.S. has fabricated all sorts of laws such as the "Trading with the Enemy Act", "Export Control Act," "Foreign Assistance Act" and "Export-Import Bank Act" to impose unprecedented economic sanctions upon the DPRK and prevented south Korea and other vassal forces from doing economic cooperation with the DPRK.

  From the beginning of the year the U.S. called for "maximum pressure" on the north until it abandons nuclear and missile program, mischievously behaving linking the technical matters the south Korean authorities promoted for the DPRK's participation in the Winter Olympics to provisions of the UN "sanctions resolution" and "independent sanctions".

  Resorting to high-handed and arbitrary practices and shameless interference over the past 70 years since its occupation of a half of Korea, the U.S. has trampled down upon the aspiration and wishes of the Korean nation for the improvement of the inter-Korean relations and national reunification.

The historical thrice-cursed crimes of the U.S. prove that the U.S. is the sworn enemy of  the Korean nation and the biggest hurdle in the way for peace and reunification.

  The U.S. should properly understand the ever-growing aspiration and will of Koreans for national reunification and stop at once the anachronistic and unethical criminal acts against the improvement of the north-south relations and reunification of Korea
