KCNA: "It is a lesson shown by the past history that it would never be possible to write a new history of opening up the prospect of the country and nation even though we may sit with those without trust and confidence and without manners. Clear and immutable is our stand."
KCNA: "Unless the serious situation which led to the suspension of the north-south high-level talks is settled, it will never be easy to sit face to face again with the present government of south Korea."
KCNA: "The south Korean authorities are required to think over the present situation turning into an irrevocable worst one, not whiling away time with thoughtless moves to shift the blame on to the DPRK based on a string of lame excuses and pretexts."
KCNA: "The direction of the future north-south ties will entirely depend on the behavior of the south Korean authorities."
KCNA: "The present south Korean authorities have been clearly proven to be an ignorant and incompetent group devoid of the elementary sense of the present situation, of any concrete picture of their dialogue partner and of the ability to discern the present trend of the times."
KCNA: "The south Korean authorities launched the extremely adventurous 2018 Max Thunder joint air combat exercises aimed at precision strike on key strategic objects of the DPRK and the seizure of the air control together with the U.S."
KCNA: "On the other hand, they let human scum hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK and its social system and speak ill of the historic Panmunjom Declaration at the 'National Assembly'."
KCNA: "Far from thinking over the meaning of the step taken by the DPRK and taking necessary follow-up measures, they went so senseless as to express 'regret' and 'urge' something."

Kashmir: militants escape after brief gunfight, locals clash with forces
KCNA: "If it truly wishes for dialogue, it should come out to positively respond to the DPRK's pro-active measures for world peace, not posing threat to the peace and security on the Korean peninsula through the introduction of nuclear strategic assets."
KCNA: "The U.S. should not misjudge the DPRK's peace-loving willingness as an expression of weakness but stop act of rattling the dialogue partner through continued introduction of nuclear strategic assets."
KCNA: "It is a universally recognized maxim that no issue can be implemented through the efforts of only one side and that good results can be expected only when both sides create favorable conditions and environment by joint efforts."
KCNA: "The U.S. continued introduction of nuclear strategic assets has exposed the process for detenteto vulnerability and clouded the prospect of the upcoming DPRK-U.S. summit, to say nothing of suspending the north-south high-level talks that was just around the corner."
KCNA: "An atmosphere of detente and reconciliation has been created on the Korean peninsula thanks to the proactive efforts made by the DPRK. But the U.S. is going against all the peace-loving efforts and good faith the DPRK has shown so far in practice."
KCNA: "At a time when the DPRK-U.S. summit is approaching, the U.S. has launched the largest-ever drill involving B-52 strategic nuclear bomber, F-22 Raptor stealth fighters and other nuclear strategic assets. This is an extremely provocative and ill-boding act."
