The Democratic People's Republicof Korea (DPRK) said here Friday that the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula "can surely be solved" if the United States has a will to do so.
"As far as the US much-publicized 'nuclear issue' on the Korean Peninsula is concerned, it can surely be solved if the US has a will to settle it through dialogues and negotiations with the DPRK," the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said.
"By nature, the DPRK's 'nuclear issue' is a product of the US hostile policy towards the DPRK as it is a fiction Washington dreamed up in a bid to disarm Pyongyang and bring it to its knees by forcing it to scrap its nuclear program before dialogue," the news agency said.
"In peddling the fiction about the DPRK's 'nuclear development'the US sought to contain the DPRK and bring it to collapse by force," the news agency said. "To this end, the US launched a large-scale 'foal eagle' joint military exercise in South Korea."
