북한의 천안함 격침행위는 테러행위가 아니기 때문에 북한을 테러지원국 리스트에 올리지 않을 것이라고 미 국부부가 밝혔습니다 

필립 크롤리 미 국무부 대변인은 오늘 정례브리핑을 통해 북한의 천안함 격침행위는 도발적 행동이며, 한국전 정전협정 위반이지만 이는 테러행위가 아니라 한국가가 다른 국가에 취한 군사적 행동이라며 북한을 테러지원국 리스트에 다시 등재하지는 않을 것이라고 말했습니다

브리핑멘트
Also last week I was asked about the status of our review of North Korea and the question of state sponsorship of terrorism. And this review process continues. It’s actually a never-ending process. We’re always evaluating information that is available to us in concert with the relevant statutes. But it is our judgment that the sinking of the Cheonan is not an act of international terrorism and by itself would not trigger placing North Korea on the state sponsor of terrorism list. That said, we continue to evaluate information that is consistently coming into us regarding North Korean activities, and we will not hesitate to take action if we have information that North Korea has repeatedly provided support for acts of terrorism. So that is an ongoing process.

--------------------------------------
QUESTION: Does that constitute an act of war then? I mean, what is it if it’s not --

MR. CROWLEY: Well, it certainly is a violation of the existing armistice between North and South. And we are obviously seeking a meeting with North Korean officials to discuss that. I think there’s been some reporting that North Korea has, at least for the moment, declined to participate in that meeting. But this is a – it was a state-on-state action and by itself does not constitute an act of international terrorism. That said, we obviously have plenty of concerns about activity of North Korea in terms of its well-established export of weapons and dangerous technology and know-how and we will continue to watch North Korea very carefully and will not hesitate to take action if we think that there are actions that North Korea has taken which do, in fact, demonstrate a consistent support for international terrorism.

QUESTION: At what level are you seeking that meeting with the North Koreans?

MR. CROWLEY: I mean, this is – there’s an established process if we have – if we want to raise questions that – about violations of the armistice. We believe that the Cheonan was, in fact, a violation of the armistice. We’ve sought meetings at various levels and thus far they have not been set up.
-----------------------------------------------
QUESTION: Going back to North Korea – South. On the ground, it’s always said that the final agreement about ending the war was never signed. So do you have anything to say on that?

MR. CROWLEY: That’s true. (Laughter.)

QUESTION: Yeah. I was in South Korea and North Korea and this is – was exactly what – they said the war is still on. So how do you define that?

MR. CROWLEY: Well, and that is – that’s a fact that technically, the two countries remain at a state of conflict. We obviously would like to see that resolved. But clearly, there are things that North Korea will have to do if it wants to have better relations with its neighbors and, in particular, South Korea.

QUESTION: Now, is South Korea doing anything to proceed with this?

MR. CROWLEY: Is South Korea doing anything --

QUESTION: To proceed with this signing of the end of the war?

MR. CROWLEY: Well, I mean, that’s a matter of – I mean, that’s a matter, I think, for the United Nations would oversee that process. But at this point, what we’re doing in light of the North Korean provocations, we’re continuing to work with South Korea to strengthen our defense cooperation. You heard over the weekend decisions made by the presidents of the United States and South Korea regarding operational control of forces on the peninsula. We obviously would like to see North Korea cease its provocative action and construct better relations with its neighbors, take affirmative steps towards denuclearization of the peninsula. Those would be the kinds of things that we think would create the proper environment to resolve the armistice and establish peace and stability on the peninsula. But that is, at this point, up to North Korea.

Question Taken at the June 23, 2010 Daily Press Briefing
June 28, 2010


Question: Has a determination been made whether to put North Korea back on the list of State Sponsored Terrorism? Was the Cheonan incident a factor?

Answer: The standards for designating a country as a state sponsor and rescinding the designation are set out in the three separate statutes: Section 620A of the Foreign Assistance Act (22 USC 2371), Section 40 of the Arms Export Control Act (22 USC 278), and Section 6(j) of the Export Administration Act (50 USC app 2405(j)). All three statutes provide for the Secretary of State the authority to designate countries the governments of which “repeatedly provide support for acts of international terrorism.” Therefore, the Secretary of State must determine that the government of North Korea has repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism. The United States will follow the provisions of the law as the facts warrant, and if information exists which indicates that North Korea has repeatedly provided support for acts of terrorism, the Department will take immediate action. As a general matter, a state military attack on a military target would not be considered an act of international terrorism.



북한은 미국의 테리지원국 리스트에 등재돼 있다 지난 2008년 제외됐으며 한국은 천안함 격침사태와 관련, 미국이 북한을 테러지원국 리스트에 재등재해야 할 것이라고 요구해 왔습니다 
 
크롤리 국무부 대변인은 그러나 행정부가 북한의 행위가 북한을 다시 테러지원국 리스트에 올릴 만한 것인지에 대한 검토를 계속하고 있다고 여운을 남겼습니다

크롤리 대변인은 만약 우리가 북한이 테러행위에 대한 지원을 반복한다는 정보가 있다면 행동하는데[테러지원국 리스트에 재등재하는데] 주저하지 않을 것이라는 말도 덧붙였습니다
