Normally we would not bother to comment on the stories being circulated in the Western media including the UK media such as the Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail and Daily Express about a so-called "coup " in the DPRK with "Pyongyang in lockdown " however we have had some questions from friends so we are putting out this short statement.; there is absolutely no truth whatsoever in these stories which incidentally do not come from anyone instead the DPRK or in Pyongyang but a website run by a so-called "defector " who has not lived in the DPRK for many years . In actual fact the situation in Pyongyang is perfectly normal with international trains and planes running normal . A KFA trip delegation including its president Alejandro Cao De Benos is in the DPRK now. Preparation for the the celebrations of the 69th anniversary of the foundation of the WPK are ongoing. It is totally inconceivable that a high level delegation of the DPRK including secretaries of the WPK and the director of the General Political Bureau of the KPA would go to south Korea for high level talks if a coup was taking place.
Significantly none of the Western embassies in Pyongyang have
made any statement about anything happening. The stories are basically cheap low grade rumours and falsifications.
The DPRK is based totally on the single hearted unity of the masses
around the leader and the Party .he DPRK is one of the most stable
countries on earth, in fact probably the most stable country in the
world . Young people there do not riot but instead act as the shock
brigade in socialist construction and take part with vigour in the
defence of the country. The DPRK is based on the socialist ownership of
the means of production so there is no social inequality . There can
be no such thing as a "coup attempt" or "unrest " in the DPRK.
The source for the stories being recycled by far right
wing newspapers in the UK as well and other sections of the
international capitalist media is a website run by a traitor to the DPRK
whom the wikipedia freely admits used to be employed by a "research
institute " under the so-called "National Intelligence Service " and set
up with the website with his redundancy pay .
It is probable that the rumours are being spread by US imperialist
interests keen to not only portray the DPRK as unstable etc but also to
ruin the atmosphere for dialogue and reconcillation on the Korean
peninsula by repeating un founded rumours started by some elements in
south Korea. Whoever is really behind the rumours will pay a high price.
Based on single hearted unity and led by dear respected Marshal KIM
JONG UN , People's Korea will defeat its enemies .
