Every country in the world has the right to develop nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. Why does the United States insist that only we should give up that right? This is total nonsense. Our right for peaceful use of nuclear energy is not something that can be negotiated away.
We have built our nuclear energy facilities over the past decades by tightening our people's belts. The facilities are built with our people's blood and sweat. It is unimaginable for us to succumb to outside pressure and give up our independent nuclear power industry without an alternative that will compensate us with nuclear energy.
The United States should, first of all, lift its sanctions against the DPRK, the main factor in scuttling the talks, before suggesting their resumption. The prospect of their continuing entirely depends on the U.S. behavior.
This is a declaration of war, a nuclear war against the DPRK. Therefore, the U.S. openly violated and destroyed the DPRK-U.S. agreed framework and nullified the North-South joint declaration on denuclearization.
