PYONGYANG, May 2 (Xinhuanet) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Monday condemned the United States for again labeling it a "terrorism-supporting state".
"The US more undisguised move to stifle the DPRK only hardens its determination to continuously go the way it has already chosen," a spokesman of the DPRK's Foreign Ministry said.
According to the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), the US State Department recently released an "annual report on terrorism in 2004," designating again the DPRK as a "terrorism-supporting state."
"It is ridiculous that the United States, the kingpin of state-sponsored terrorism and the biggest terrorism-supporting state, publishes a 'report on terrorism' every year and brands anti-US countries as 'terrorism-supporting countries,'" the spokesman said.
"Although the Bush administration admitted the DPRK has no record of terrorism, it termed the DPRK a 'terrorism-supporting state' again over the 'issue of abduction' which had been completely resolved between the DPRK and Japan," the spokesman said, adding that it clearly shows "how frantic the US ambition" is to overturn the DPRK's system.
