Conclusion of Peace Agreement Called for: KCNA Commentary
A series of negotiations including the six-party talks for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula underwent twists and turns in the past due to the failure to properly understand that the establishment of a peace-keeping mechanism is essential for settling the Korean issue.
It is impossible to wipe out the mutual distrust nor is it possible to achieve a smooth solution of the issue of denuclearization as long as there persists the hostile relationship between the DPRK and the U.S., the signatories to the AA, the relationship in which they level their guns at each other. This is the lesson drawn from the process of the six-party talks. http://www.kcna.co.jp/item/2011/201107/ ... -01ee.html

The Islamic Emirate Of Afghanistan:
The Process of Power Handover by the Foreigners Must not be Nominal
Thursday, July 28, 2011
Let’s see how realistic is the so-called security handover process and to what extent it can be called as genuine process of power transfer.
A case in hand is Helmand where the security responsibility was transferred to the Afghan [puppet] forces. But outside the parameters of the city, there are still 10,000 British troops stationed in various parts of the province. If we count the American and other foreign troops, their numbers would surpass tens of thousands of troops.
Kabul can be quoted as a second example of the process. The power transfer process will take place there soon, by completing power transition from the foreign forces to the Afghans’. There too, the foreigners have all epicenters of decision-making in their hands– right from the presidential palace down to the ministry of defense, the government departments and ministries.
