North Korea blames South Korea for failed talks

Jun 13 2013, 3:55am CDT | by

Seoul, June 13 (IANS/RIA Novosti) North Korea came down on South Korea Thursday after high-level talks between the sides were cancelled.

Seoul, June 13 (IANS/RIA Novosti) North Korea came down on South Korea Thursday after high-level talks between the sides were cancelled.

North Korea said South Korea had deliberately hindered the resumption of the talks, Yonhap news agency reported citing North Korean media.

"This fully proves that the south side had no intent to hold dialogue from the beginning and that it only sought to create an obstacle to the talks, delay and torpedo them after reluctantly taking part in the talks, far from solving issues at the negotiating table," a spokesperson for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) was quoted as saying.

The North and the South were to have held two-day talks starting Wednesday, but the plan was called off after Pyongyang complained that Seoul fielded negotiators of insufficient rank.

Yonhap said Wednesday that North Korea's leadership did not return repeated calls from its counterparts in South Korea made over the last extant communication line between the two countries.

Tensions mounted on the Korean Peninsula earlier this year after North Korea conducted new nuclear and missile tests.

Pyongyang threatened Seoul and the US with war and closed off the joint industrial zone in Kaesong following a new round of international sanctions, but later voiced willingness to negotiate.

Foreign policy of procrastination

Aug 31 2014 1:59pm CDT | Source: WND

When President Obama was questioned about countering the Islamic terrorists (ISIS) in Syria, his response was, “We don’t have a strategy yet.” This exemplifies the status of our foreign policy. The Obama administration has deferred our foreign policy decisions to other countries who defer back to the U.S. It is a policy of procrastination based on hopes and dreams that the world problems will fade away or be solved by foreign good guys in ...

North Korean media have graced Secretary of State John Kerry with one of its trademark insults against foreign leaders, calling him a "wolf with a hideous lantern jaw,” according to the Associated Press. The AP noted that Wednesday’s insult against Kerry only appeared in Korean-language media, meaning it was meant specifically to drum up internal support against the United States. The Kerry insult ...

N. Korea mocks 'hideous lantern jaw' Kerry

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) –  In its latest personal attack on a prominent official from a rival country, North Korea on Wednesday called U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry a wolf with a “hideous lantern jaw.” North Korea has unleashed a slew of crude insults against leaders in Washington and Seoul this year, calling President Barack Obama a monkey and South Korean President Park Geun-hye a prostitute.

Daily Beast: Pope Francis, ISIS, and the Last Crusade

This article originally appeared in The Daily Beast: Is the Pontiff of Peace advocating war? No, but the self-proclaimed “Caliph” Ibrahim wants his fight to be a true holy war on both sides, and his strategy seems to be succeeding. Pope Francis is walking a knife edge—or perhaps, better said, the blade of a crusaders’ sword—as he tries to mobilize support for Christians and other minorities victimized by th ...
