Pyongyang, June 24 (KCNA) -- The Central Committee of the Democratic Front for the Reunification of Korea, the National Peace Committee of Korea and the North Headquarters of the Nationwide Special Committee for Probing the Truth behind the GIs' Crimes made public a joint statement on June 24 as regards the lapse of six decades since the U.S. imperialists provoked the Korean War.

The statement said that the last Korean War was an aggression war ignited by the U.S. with its satellite countries and south Korea to stifle the young DPRK in its cradle and realize its wild ambition for world domination. It was also a war of massacre against the Korean nation unprecedented in the world history of wars, it noted, and went on:

During the war the U.S. imperialist ogres used even germ and chemical weapons against the Korean people in wanton violation of international law and even hatched a plot to drop an atomic bomb.

Due to the shuddering brutalities of the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet forces, millions of innocent people met death and the whole territory of the northern half of Korea turned into such debris during the war that not a single house and a full brick could be found.

Branding the U.S. imperialists as blood-thirsty murderers, heinous war fanatics and aggressors without parallel, the statement further said:

More than half a century has passed since the U.S. imperialists signed the Korean Armistice Agreement, with their knees bent before the army and people of the DPRK. But the U.S. has not only committed vicious moves to provoke a new war but desperately stood in the way of improving the inter-Korean relations and achieving reunification while interfering in the internal affairs of the Korean nation and disturbing the process for improving relations even after the war.

The Lee Myung Bak group of south Korea, driven to the tight corner after being censured inside and outside, is working with bloodshot eyes to escalate confrontation and provoke a war, pursuant to the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK. It is, indeed, the top class war servant and nuclear war accomplice of the U.S.

The only way out for the Korean nation is to turn out in the nationwide patriotic struggle to foil the U.S. and the pro-American conservative group's scheme to escalate confrontation and launch a war against the DPRK.

All Koreans who have the blood and spirit of the nation should courageously turn out with dignity and honor of the nation in the struggle to make the enemies pay dearly for the blood shed by their fellow countrymen.

The entire Korean nation should resolutely foil the U.S. reckless hostile policy toward the DPRK and its war moves, holding high the banner of peace against the U.S. and war.

The people from all walks of life in south Korea should all rise up in the struggle to decisively break the shackling "alliance" with the U.S., an "alliance" for war leading the nation to ruin, and put an end to the U.S. military occupation.

They should wage a resolute and merciless struggle to force the puppet conservative group to pay dearly for its treachery and bury the group of traitors in the graveyard of history once and for all.

Whoever stands for peace against war should opt for defending and implementing the June 15 North-South Joint Declaration.

All Koreans in the north and the south and abroad should cherish deep the mission they have assumed before the times and history and give rise to the anti-U.S. and anti-Lee Myung Bak wind and thus force them to pay dearly for the sufferings and disasters inflicted upon the Korean nation and make a turning-point in accomplishing the patriotic cause of justice for peace and reunification of the country.
