Analysis of developments in inter-Korean relations

Some analysis of the developments in inter-Korean relations . As usual the mainstream media have misinformed people about the nature of what is going on . It has been falsely said that the DPRK has opened talks with south Korea because of the 'sanctions ' or ' it is simply ' a tactic to gain time' . This is a mean slander on the DPRK's sincere efforts for Korean reunification and for peace.
As a matter of fact over decades the DPRK has tabled hundreds , if not thousands of reunification proposals. Even just before the Korean war broke out in June 1950 the DPRK had been working towards peaceful reunification and had sent emissaries to south Korea on the 7th of June . President KIM IL SUNG had put forward the proposal for a confederation of the north and south at the 4th congress of the Workers' Party of Korea and had also held the historic north-south talks in July 1972 .
Chairman KIM JONG IL held the inter-Korean summit in June 2000 with then south Korean ruler Kim Dae Jung .
Respected Marshal KIM JONG UN had several times put forward proposals for peace and reunification including an offer to suspend nuclear and missile tests. These proposals were ignored by the south Korean puppet fascist regime of Park Geun Hye and its masters the US imperialists . It is not the DPRK that has changed its position but south Korea. The new regime in south Korea has accepted the DPRK's proposals leading to a significant breakthrough in reducing tension. However it needs to be seen whether this is from a genuine patriotic pro reunification stand or whether this is a tactic to deal with the DPRK's increasing strength and might .
The root cause of Korea's division is the occupation of south Korea by the US . What we can do is to campaign day and night for the US troops to be withdrawn .

Abe Group Accused of Further Clinging to Sanctions and Pressure Campaign against DPRK

Pyongyang, January 18 (KCNA) -- A spokesperson for the Institute for Studies of Japan of the DPRK Foreign Ministry gave the following answer to a question raised by the KCNA on January 18 regarding the fact that the Abe group is further clinging to the sanctions and pressure campaign against the DPRK:

During his recent tour of some European countries, Japanese prime minister Abe mentioned the DPRK's "nuclear and missile development" and abduction issue every time he discussed bilateral relations with these countries and heinously maneuvered to drag them into cooperation for pressure against the DPRK.

Abe cried out that the DPRK launched a ballistic missile that can hit Vilnius and Belgrade and it is a serious threat to the entire Europe and that they should make the DPRK change its policy through maximum pressure.

While touring the United Arab Emirates and Canada, Japanese Foreign Minister Kono also uttered that the DPRK is earning time to continue its nuclear and missile development and that they should not be misled by the DPRK's "smiling diplomacy" and he called for pressure against the DPRK, by means of, inter alia, severing diplomatic relations.

The Abe group is creating an atmosphere of pressure against the DPRK, taking issue with our self-defensive nuclear deterrence while driving the whole of Japan into an atmosphere of terror by fabricating a national crisis. Their purpose is to make Japan a country that can be able to wage a war by revising the present constitution through all means.

The fact that Abe doggedly preached about putting pressure on the DPRK during his latest tour of European countries clearly proves how desperate they are to realize their dangerous purpose.

It is really a childish and foolish way of thinking for a prime minister of a country to think that we would change our policy if they intensify pressure on us.

As for the abduction issue which Abe group is chanting like monk's chanting prayers, it is well known to the whole world that this issue has already been resolved by our sincerity and efforts.

Nevertheless, continuing to take up the abduction issue here and there is merely a deceptive farce aimed at achieving a long-term power. The Abe group will surely have to be responsible for its consequence.

Japan abducted millions of Korean people by force and inflicted mental and physical suffering upon them. It should keep in mind that our punishment will become harsher as it adds more sins to those crimes against humanity without settling them.

The Abe group had better have a proper eye on the elevated strategic position of our Republic and revise its policy towards the DPRK, instead of keeping to the foolish act of spitting against heaven which will fall in his face. -0-

U.S. Accused of Convening FMs' Meeting of Countries Participated in Korean War

Pyongyang, January 18 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Institute for American Studies of the DPRK Foreign Ministry gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA on January 18 as regards the foreign ministers' meeting of the countries that participated in the Korean War, recently convened by the U.S. together with Canada:

The U.S., in collusion with Canada created the scene of war simulation by summoning the foreign ministers' meeting of the countries that participated in the Korean War in Vancouver, Canada from January 15 to 16. Participated in this meeting were 20 countries including the ones that had followed the U.S. to the aggressive war against our country from 1950 to 1953.

At the meeting, the U.S. Secretary of State openly trumpeted that they should intensify the pressure campaign against us until we stop nuclear program by way of limiting the export of oil and industrial products, strengthening naval control, expelling our workers abroad, etc. and he went so far as to insist on the military option.

Now the whole world warmly welcomes the dramatic change in the frozen inter-Korean relations and the visible sign of easing tension on the Korean peninsula, which are being brought about by our generous and magnanimous proposal.

However, the U.S., while throwing a wet blanket over this atmosphere, have brought together its vassal forces including the countries that had followed the former to participate in the aggressive war against our country and openly hatched a plot to further intensify the barbarous sanctions and pressure against our country and provoke a new war on the Korean peninsula.

It is no accident that many countries including our neighbouring countries unanimously criticize the meeting, arguing that the nature and the agenda of the meeting are not conducive to easing the tension on the Korean peninsula and that it would rather bring an adverse effect.

As we have already clarified several times, the tightening of sanctions against our country like the naval blockade, which have been discussed behind the screen at the meeting, is tantamount to an act of war.

The meeting speaks to the fact that the U.S. is willing to spark a new war in the Korean peninsula at any cost although it talks about dialogue.

We take the U.S. convocation of the meeting simply as the ridiculous floundering of the Trump group which was frightened by the might of our Republic that has achieved great historic cause of perfecting the state nuclear force and made a dignified rise to a position of the strategic state recognized by the world.

The move of the U.S. trying to solve the issue of the Korean peninsula by force further solidifies our conviction that the road we chose was absolutely right and we should ever follow this road without any slightest vacillation.

We scrutinize even at this moment every move of the U.S. that is making highly disturbing military acts by continuously bringing the strategic nuclear weapons in and around the Korean peninsula and we constantly maintain high alert.

We take this opportunity to warn those unprincipled countries that kowtowed to the U.S. and participated in the meeting unlawful and ambiguous in nature and advise them to contemplate the consequences to ensue thereafter. -0-

Rodong Sinmun on Importance of Class Education

Pyongyang, January 18 (KCNA) -- It poses itself as a very important problem to intensify the class education for the Party members and other working people, says Rodong Sinmun in an article on Thursday, adding:
Socialist construction is attended by a serious class struggle.
The more successfully the masses' cause of independence, the cause of socialism, makes an advance, the more desperately the imperialists try to stop it.
The victorious advance of revolution is guaranteed by the struggle of the service personnel and people with strong class consciousness.
Our revolution has performed miracles and achievements as all the Party members and other working people and the service personnel have waged a do-or-die struggle with burning hatred against the class enemy trying hard to stop them from achieving the prosperity of the country and the happiness of the people.
Our people are now carrying on the revolutionary general offensive for a fresh victory in the building of a powerful socialist country under the leadership of the Party.
Much upset by this, the U.S. imperialists and their vassal forces are making desperate efforts to stop our advance.
It is very important to intensify the class education as the U.S. imperialists are going reckless in the most barbarous aggression war moves and sanctions, crying out for "exterminating" our state and people.
The bitter lesson that a large number of residents in Sinchon met massive deaths as they had no class consciousness is not bygone tragedy.
It is necessary not to neglect the class education even a moment but intensify it for both preventing recurrence of the bloody history and making the red flag of revolution flutter on the victorious peak of socialism. -0

ASSPUK,JISGE , UK KFA and BSCPRKP on recent developments on the Korean peninsula

  London 18th of January Juche 107 (2018)      
  The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK),the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE),the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula (BSCPRKP) issued a joint statement on the recent talks between the DPRK and south Korea;
 On the 17th of January talks between the DPRK and south Korea were held at  Panmunjom concerning the participation of the DPRK in the 23rd Winter Olympics and Paralympics. It was agreed that the DPRK would send a sports team, cheer group, Taekwon-do demonstration group and press corps . What is highly significant is that the DPRK and south Korea will march under the flag of a reunified Korea .
   This is big step forward for peace and reunification which has been hailed by the world media and is evoking excitement amongst the world progressive people.The icy glacier of national division imposed by the US imperialists has started to thaw.Our organisations applaud these moves towards  a lessening of tension and towards reunification.
   The imperialists are talking about the DPRK 'driving a wedge between south Korea and the US '. This is the most ridiculous thing ever said . The Pacific Ocean and thousands of miles separate Korea and the US . The US is an uninvited guest on the Korean peninsula, an unwanted interloper and in fact occupier and enemy of the Korean nation.
  Although a very big step forward has been taken there should be no room for complacency because US troops still occupy south Korea, they are the root cause of Korea's division. Despite the lessening of inter-Korean tensions , the US imperialists have deployed extra forces and equipment around the Korean peninsula as well as staging the Vancouver anti-DPRK conference and imposing sanctions on  People's Korea. The US plans to deploy nuclear aircraft carriers and go ahead with war exercises against People's Korea . The south Korean chief executive has even praised Trump. This shows the
process of inter-Korean dialogue still has a very long way to go and that pro US attitudes amongst the south Korean ruling quarters need to be uprooted .
  We support the struggle of the Korean people for reunification and for the withdrawal of US forces
from the south  !

Precondition for National Reunification

In his New Year Address for 2018, Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un said that a climate favorable for national reconciliation and reunification should be established in order to repair frozen inter-Korean relations and create environment conducive to national concord.

Now the unity of the Korean nation is a pressing task.

The atmosphere of national reconciliation and reunification never comes by itself. It is realized through contact, travel, cooperation and exchange. The north and the south should remove mutual misunderstanding and distrust through wide-ranging contact, visit, cooperation and exchange thus fulfill their responsibility and role as the motive force of national reunification.

All legal and institutional mechanisms should be removed in south Korea in order to create conditions and environment conducive to inter-Korean reconciliation and reunification. The south Korean authorities should put a definite end to acts that might offend the other party and incite discord and hostility between fellow countrymen.

Of late, inter-Korean dialogue was held thanks to north Korea’s energetic effort for creating a climate favorable for national reconciliation and reunification. It is a manifestation of great magnanimity and sincerity of north Korea for achieving a breakthrough for independent reunification without being obsessed by bygone days.

The future orientation of the inter-Korean relations depends on the south Korean authorities' efforts for creating the atmosphere of national reconciliation and reunification.

The south Korean authorities should respond positively to north Korea’s sincere efforts for establishing a climate favorable for national reconciliation and reunification.

Now civic bodies and people of all backgrounds urge the south Korean authorities to take the road of peace and reunification with north Korea, positively supporting active measures taken by north Korea for alleviating tension on the Korean Peninsula and improvement of north-south relations.
