    Pyongyang, March 9 (KCNA) -- A few days ago an inaugural ceremony of the preparatory committee for joint functions of Koreans in the north, the south and abroad took place in Mt. Kumgang, a picturesque mountain of Korea, to implement the June 15 joint declaration and its first meeting was held, at which an inaugural declaration and a joint press release were adopted. The preparatory committee is a permanent nationwide solidarity organization of the reunification movement which groups political parties, organizations and public figures of all circles in the north, the south and abroad, the first of its kind ever since the division of the country.
    The formation of the committee is a national historic event making it possible to pave a wide avenue of national reconciliation, cooperation, peace and reunification, regardless of differences in idea and ideology, political view, religious belief, class and social stratum, political affiliation and region, says Rodong Sinmun Wednesday in a signed commentary.
    Declaring that the people in the northern half of Korea warmly support the formation of the preparatory committee, the commentary goes on:
    It was agreed upon at the first meeting of the preparatory committee to hold grand reunification functions and meetings of organizations of all strata for reunification on significant occasions. This is a judicious option to orient the minds and strength of the fellow countrymen to the successful fulfillment of national historic tasks facing them this year.
    The basic mission of the preparatory committee in the implementation of the June 15 joint declaration is to closely unite all the fellow countrymen under the banner of the joint declaration and pave a broad way of reunification, placing the common interests of the nation before anything else.
    All the Koreans in the north, the south and abroad should accept the spirit of the preparatory committee, which raised the anchor for reunification and patriotism, as the requirement of national history and turn out on a nationwide scale in the struggle for reunification and patriotism and thus give full play to the patriotic spirit and invincible might of the Korean nation creating a new history of national unity and a new era of independence and reunification.
