DPRK blasts Bush's remarks on Korean War
The Democratic People's Republic of Korea(DPRK) lashed out Wednesday at U.S. President George W. Bush's remarks on the Korean War, warning such remarks will undermine the improving relationship between Pyongyang and Washington.

"Bush's saying denigrates the dignity and authority of the DPRK, which reflects that the United States still maintains the Cold War thinking," the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said in a commentary.

"The DPRK can not abide such a saying," it added.

DPRK's condemnation came in response to Bush's speech at Veterans of Foreign Wars National Convention in Kansas on Aug. 22.

Bush said "without Americans' intervention during the war and our willingness to stick with the South Koreans after the war, millions of South Koreans would now be living under a brutal and repressive regime."

The KCNA also criticized the accusation from "U.S. tough conservative force" that the DPRK is the country most likely to sell nuclear technology to terrorist organizations.

"Such a saying is aimed at blocking the development of the relation between the DPRK and the United States," said the comment, adding that "The DPRK never changes its stance on denuclearization and stability on the Korean Peninsula."

Pyongyang said Monday that the United States has agreed to remove it from a list of terrorism-sponsoring states and lift economic sanctions against it, after the DPRK agreed to declare and disable its nuclear weapons programs in a two-day meeting with U.S. officials in Geneva.
