Pyongyang, August 7 (KCNA) -- Japan is behaving imprudently again.
Shortly ago Japanese Foreign Minister Kono and the president of the House of Councillors spouted gibberish about denuclearization and "abduction issue".
It came soon after Prime Minister Abe talked about "bearing of cost" and "realization of summit talks", which betrays the disturbed feelings of Japan trying to meddle in the issue of the Korean peninsula.
But it is impossible to change the position of Japan that has sunk into a quagmire.
As known, now Japan is subject to disgrace and shame because it is the only one who doesn't have a share in the process of negotiations and cooperation of various countries for ensuring peace and security of the Korean peninsula and the region.
As it oversteps the mark casting a chill over the climate of dialogue and causing trouble, the international community's attitude to it gets cold day by day.
In a nutshell, Japan has sunk into the worst-ever quagmire of being marginalized and given the cold shoulder.
That's why it tries to draw the attention of the world with the whole gamut of nonsense.
Its miserable position is totally attributable to its anachronistic one-sided policy of pressure on the DPRK.
Apart form the trend of the times it keeps on its keynote of hostile policy towards the DPRK, which is the reason why it can't sit face to face with the DPRK and why it fails to flee from "passing Japan".
Nevertheless, it refers to the already-settled "abduction issue" again to stoke the atmosphere of hostility towards the DPRK, only plunging its fate into an abyss of hell.
It's very ridiculous of Japan to persistently pursue the escalation of tension and deterioration of situation on the Korean peninsula, even though the others give up.
No wonder, even foreign media say that "Japan has been definitely sidelined to the second group in tackling the issue of the Korean peninsula".
Today the first legal and moral obligations Japan assumes before the DPRK are the honest reflection on its bloody past crimes of aggression, full apology and thorough reparation.
No matter how craftily it acts to thrust itself into the trend of the times, it can never flee from the current pitiful position until it has properly settled its past chock-full of crimes. -0-
