Implementation of Inter-Korean Declarations Called for
Korean Central News Agency of DPRK via Korea News Service (KNS)
Pyongyang, February 3 (KCNA) -- How to approach the June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration serves as a barometer to distinguish the harmony between the north and the south from confrontation and reunification from division. Rodong Sinmun Wednesday observes this in a signed article.
It goes on:
The above-said historic declarations are the declarations on national independence and those on national unity in which the north and the south promised to solve the issue of national reunification on the basis of the spirit of "By our nation itself".
The inter-Korean relations should be developed by the concerted efforts of the Koreans on the basis of the declarations under any circumstances. If the south Korean authorities persist in kicking up the racket of confrontation in league with foreign forces while denying the June 15 joint declaration, the inter-Korean relations will never be improved.
Those who struggle for the implementation of the above-said declarations are patriots at present whereas those who negate them are anti-reunification elements.
Whoever truly wants the reunification and prosperity of the country should respect the inter-Korean declarations and sincerely implement them. One should not rely on foreign forces but take the stand of national independence and settle the issue of inter-Korean relations on the principle of "By our nation itself".
The south Korean authorities should meet the desire of the fellow countrymen and the need of the era for improving the inter-Korean relations and bringing about a landmark turn in national reunification as indicated by the declarations, concludes the article.
