The following article was published on the Chinese language search-engine ‘Baidu’ in 2015, and demonstrates President Obama’s unwillingness to sign a Peace Treaty with North Korea. In 1953 during the Korean War, the US and UN forces had suffered numerous and humiliating military defeats at the hands of the Chinese ‘Volunteer’ Army and its North Korean ally. With no hope of victory insight, the US decided to sign an ‘armistice’ agreeing to a cease-fire – but not an official end to hostilities. Today, over 60 years later, North Korea and South Korea are still in a ‘state of war’, which the US will not allow to be changed – despite continuous requests by the North Korean leadership. This is because the US believes that the North Korean regime can be bankrupted and impoverished by its continuous requirement to develop arms to protect its borders from the threat of US military aggression, and that pressure upon North Korea equals pressure upon its major ally – Communist China. Although Donald Trump is a rightwing, bourgeois lunatic, his ultra-aggressive policy toward North Korea is remarkably continuous of US foreign policy since 1953, and in-line with Obama’s approach, albeit more pro-active and dynamic. Trump wants North Korea destroyed (and capitalised), and Russia to be a subordinate branch of the EU, as a means to spread US-style domination around the globe. In reality, however, it is the US that wants war, and North Korea that wants peace. ACW 15.4.2017

North Korea reportedly rejected the idea of resuming talks to abandon its nuclear program on Saturday, but said it would welcome negotiations for a peace treaty with Washington.

据报道,朝鲜周日拒绝继续关于终止核计划的谈话,但称其欢迎与美国进行和平协议的谈判。
North Korea’s foreign ministry made the statement one day after President Obama and South Korean President Park Geun-hye said they were ready to open talks with Pyongyang on sanctions if they were serious about dissolving its nuclear program, according to Reuters.
距路透社报道,来自朝鲜外交部的这一声明发生在奥巴马与韩国总统朴槿惠做出声明的一天后,他们说已准备好与朝鲜开启关于制裁的谈话,如果朝鲜真的要解除其核计划。
If the United States insists on taking a different path, the Korean peninsula will only see our unlimited nuclear deterrent being strengthened further,” the North said in a statement.
朝鲜在声明中说:”如果美国坚持走另一条道路,朝鲜半岛无限制的核威慑力量会进一步加强。”

North and South Korea are still technically at war after signing a truce in 1953 to temporarily end their conflict. The U.S. also signed the deal after backing the South.
在1953年签订停战协议短暂结束了冲突后,朝韩实质上还是处于战争状态。美国也参加了协议的签署,在此之前它是韩国的支持者。
Obama, while meeting with Park on Friday, said Iran had been prepared to have a “serious conversation” about the possibility of giving up the pursuit of nuclear weapons. He said there’s no indication of that in North Korea’s case.
奥巴马于周五会见了朴槿惠,他称伊朗已准备对放弃核武器的可能性进行谈话,而在朝鲜的例子里没有这样的迹象。
“At the point where Pyongyang says, `We’re interested in seeing relief from sanctions and improved relations, and we are prepared to have a serious conversation about denuclearization,’ it’s fair to say we’ll be right there at the table,” Obama told a joint news conference.
Obama在一场新闻联合会议中说:”对于平壤方面所说的,’我们对减少制裁、改善关系非常有兴趣,同时我们正为关于撤销核武器的会谈做准备’,我们可以很公正的说我已经做好了在谈判桌上的准备。”
In a joint statement after Friday’s meeting, the U.S. and South Korea said that if North Korea decides to launch another rocket into space or test a nuclear explosion, “it will face consequences, including seeking further significant measures by the U.N. Security Council.” The statement also said they would never accept North Korea as a nuclear weapons state.
周五的会谈后,美韩发表联合声明称,如果朝鲜决定再发射一枚火箭或测试一次核爆炸,朝鲜将会面临后果,包括来自联合国安理会的严重措施。这次声明还强调美韩绝不接受朝鲜作为一个核武器国家。
North Korea had walked away from talks involving the U.S. and four other countries in 2008 and continued to conduct nuclear tests. It claims the only way to end conflict with Washington is to sign a peace treaty.
朝鲜拒绝参与美国和其他四国于2008年的会谈,并继续开展核测试,它称与美方停止冲突的唯一方法就是签署和平协议。
Park’s visit Friday further strengthened South Korea’s ties with the US.
朴槿惠周五的访美活动进一步加强了韩国与美国的联系。
U.S. retains 28,500 troops in South Korea, a legacy of the 1950-53 Korean War, and nearly 50,000 troops in Japan. Obama called the U.S.-South Korean alliance “unbreakable.” Park called it a “lynchpin” of regional security.
美国在韩国驻军28500人,这一传统从1950年至1953年的朝鲜战争就遗留下来,美在日本驻军近50000人。奥巴马称美韩关系牢不可破,韩国称其为区域安全的关键。
In August, the two Koreas threatened each other with war after two South Korean soldiers were wounded by land mines Seoul says were planted by the North. The tensions have since eased, and the two sides have agreed to resume next week reunions of Korean families divided by the Korean War.
八月,在两名韩国士兵被韩国方面称是朝鲜埋下的地雷炸伤后,韩国朝鲜两国以战争相要挟。冲突在之后有所缓和,双方同意继续下周举行的因朝鲜战争而被分开的家庭的团聚。
The Obama administration has faced criticism from hawks and doves alike for a lack of high-level attention on North Korea, which estimated to have enough fissile material for between 10 and 16 nuclear weapons.
奥巴马方面受到了来自鹰派和鸽派方面的批评,称其缺少对朝鲜方面的高度重视,朝鲜据估计拥有足够多的核燃料,和10至16个核武器。
