According to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), people in DPRK are setting off a new upsurge of economic construction in hope of opening the country to the outside world in 2012, and therefore it is impossible that the government torpedoed the South Korean warship.

Some 100,000 people gathered in Kim Il Sung Square in central Pyongyang, capital of Democratic Republic of Korea (DPRK), on May 30 to protest the United States and South Korea over the sinking of a warship earlier this year. It is now feared that war may break out at any time between the two Koreas.

"This is a conspiratorial plot intended to tide over the serious ruling crisis caused by the total failure of the (Lee Myung-bak) group's domestic and foreign policies," said Choe Yong Rim, chief secretary of the Pyongyang City Committee of the ruling Worker's Party of Korea.

It is the first mass rally in DPRK since the sinking of "Cheonan".
