Reunification by Federal Formula Called for

Korean Central News Agency of DPRK via Korea News Service (KNS)

Pyongyang, February 24 (KCNA) -- The best way of realizing the reunification of Korea in a reasonable manner is to found a unified state of the nation by federal formula based on one nation and state and two systems and governments.

Rodong Sinmun Wednesday observes this in a signed article.

It goes on:

The proposal for achieving reunification by federal formula is the peace-loving way for reunification which is conducive to guaranteeing global peace and security as well as ensuring durable peace on the Korean Peninsula.

This proposal is the just and fair way for reunification as it neither ensures the predominance and interests of either the north or the south nor does harm to any side.

Huge armed forces of the north and the south of Korea are standing in acute confrontation along the Military Demarcation Line, leaving the peninsula fraught with the danger of war all the time. Under such situation, it is as plain as pikestaff that any try for "unification of systems", not reunification by federal formula would give rise to another war.

There is no reason for the north and the south of Korea to fight against each other as they are one nation. They should choose the reunification based on federation which would make it possible to reunify the country in a peaceful way, not a war which would bring ruin to the whole nation.

The proposal for achieving reunification based on federation is the only way of reunification for the Korean nation.

All the Koreans in the north and the south and overseas should turn out as one this year which marks the 30th anniversary of the proposal for founding the Democratic Federal Republic of Koryo and more dynamically conduct the patriotic struggle to realize the proposal for achieving reunification based on federation and thus bring about a decisive turn in the struggle to achieve the independent and peaceful reunification of the country.
