US Interference Biggest Hurdle in National Reunification

Pyongyang, July 6 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is the biggest hurdle in the way of the Korean nation's grand march to achieve national reunification by implementing the June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration.

Rodong Sinmun Tuesday says this in a signed article.

Branding the U.S. as the arch criminal who divided the Korean nation and is standing in the way of its reunification, the article goes on to say:

The U.S. has violated the national dignity and sovereignty of the south Korean people, stamped out democracy and egged the puppet group on to confrontation with fellow countrymen and moves for a war of aggression against the DPRK, becoming a heinous enemy of the Korean nation and the primary target of grudge and resentment. The U.S. warlike circles orchestrated such hideous farce as the case of warship "Cheonan's" sinking in collusion with south Korean puppet group to escalate the confrontation with the DPRK. This was full revelation of their dangerous scenario to stem the trend of the June 15 era, disturb peace on the Korean Peninsula and, furthermore, provoke a war of aggression against the DPRK come what may.

Without putting an end to the U.S. imperialists' presence in south Korea, their hostile policy towards the DPRK and their interference in the affairs of the Korean nation it is absolutely impossible to independently settle the issue of the nation, the issue of national reunification in line with the desire and interests of the nation. This is the lesson taught by the 60 odd year-long history of national division.

All Koreans should wage a nationwide struggle against the foreign forces' domination and interference to remove the root cause of throwing obstacles to national unity and reunification and force the U.S. forces to quit south Korea and thus deprive the U.S. of any pretext to meddle in the issue of the Korean nation.
