KCNA Issues Detailed Report on 5th Anniversary of October 4 Declaration

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

Pyongyang, October 4 (KCNA) -- The Korean Central News Agency issued a detailed report "The 5-year-long history of the bedeviled north-south relations says" on Thursday, the 5th anniversary of the historic October 4 declaration.

The gist of the report is as follows:

The adoption of the June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration, practical program of the former, marked a great event to shine in the history of the reunification movement of the Korean nation, the one and only nation in the world that has suffered from disgrace and pains for more than half a century due to its division.

Nevertheless, the south Korean Lee Myung Bak regime during its tenure of office blatantly challenged the national reunification declarations, mercilessly infringed upon the idea of "By our nation itself" and brought about the worst phase of confrontation between compatriots.

It tarnished the idea of "By our nation itself" as "national chauvinism", "narrow-minded nationalism" and the root cause of "insecurity".

The Lee group malignantly blustered that "it would not be dragged by the north without a principle though it may not sit with the north for dialogue during its 5-year tenure of office" and that "it is ready to leave the inter-Korean relations frozen till the end of its tenure."

It carried out the overhaul of the "Ministry of Unification" to turn it into one of anti-reunification and reshuffled even Chongwadae and Intelligence Service to staff them with die-hard anti-reunification elements keen on inciting confrontation.

As regards the positive and broad negotiations proposals made by the DPRK through the joint statement of its government, political party and organizations, the puppet regime categorically denied them, asserting "sincerity is not in view" and "it might be a tactics".

Therefore, no proper dialogue was possible between the north and the south during Lee Myung Bak's office.

The Lee group brutally clamped down on the persons concerned with the joint declarations and their supporters and went the lengths of repressing the former "presidents" who signed the June 15 Joint Declaration and October 4 declaration, forcing them into deaths.

The present inter-Korean relations have taken up the confrontation structure more serious than the one in the period of the Cold War before the adoption of the June 15 declaration, and plunged into the one reminiscent of a fierce war.

The group, in alignment with its U.S. master, rounded off the "OPLAN 5027" and "OPLAN 5029" to be the more provocative war plans and confirmed a pre-emptive attack on the DPRK as the orientation of its "military policy toward the north".

It also revised the military reaction programs and operational rules so that the military units may ignite a war at any time.

Begging its U.S. master to extend the 2012 transfer deadline of wartime operational control, the Lee group even takes part in the dangerous "Proliferation security initiative of weapons of mass destruction" and U.S.-led establishment of missile defence system which its predecessors dared not attempt and turned south Korea into a base for igniting a nuclear war against the DPRK.

Traitor Lee and the military war maniacs have held more than a thousand of war drills against the DPRK for the past 5 years under various codenames including Ulji Freedom Guardian, Key Resolve, Foal Eagle, Hoguk.

They mapped out a "scenario for invading the north" the main content of which is "civil operation" on the premises of waging a special warfare targeting the headquarters of the DPRK, preempting strikes at its nuclear and missile bases and occupying its territory. And they committed such dangerous acts of applying them to the Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military drills in August.

Pursuant to the new U.S. defense strategy and hostile war policy toward the DPRK, the Lee group has massively introduced various latest military equipment and mass destruction weapons and, at the same time, has got frenzy to conclude a military agreement with Japan and form the triangular military alliance with Japan and the U.S.

Due to the military confrontational rackets kicked up by the puppet regime, the waters around the 5 controversial islands in the west sea which the north and the south agreed to turn into peaceful waters have already turned into the world biggest hotspot where a second Korean war may break out.

After the great loss to the nation in December of last year, the Lee group of traitors committed unethical crimes against the nation, an unprecedentedly thrice-cursed politically-motivated provocation against the DPRK, stunning the entire nation and humanity.

Uncountable is the damage the civilian economic cooperation and the overall economy of south Korea suffered due to its reckless acts against the nation.

Due to its moves to check the north-south cooperation between NGOs, lots of non-governmental cooperative enterprises and organizations ended their existence or are on the verge of bankruptcy.

The south Korean pubic are denouncing the Lee Myung Bak regime as "the most broken regime in morality in history", saying "they can not but consider how it could so rapidly break the south-north relations in such a short period". They are now contending that it is attributable to its pro-U.S. and pro-Japanese traitorous nature.

The Lee Myung Bak conservative group was driven into a miserable plight of not being allowed to remain as a member of the nation due to its crimes against the nation and reunification.

Such a piteous lot of traitor Lee goes to prove that he will get only self-destruction through his anti-DPRK confrontation, and that the idea of "By our nation itself" is, indeed, a desire of the Korean nation and a truth of history.

The stand and attitude to the historic north-south joint declarations are a touchstone distinguishing patriotism from quislingism and reunification from division. The implementation of the joint declarations guarantees the nation's livelihood, reunification and peaceful prosperity.

The DPRK is invariable in its stand to advance hand in hand with anyone if he sincerely desires the country's reunification and wishes for the nation's peace and prosperity, and to make responsible and persevering efforts to accomplish the historic cause of national reunification.

All the compatriots in the north, south and overseas will mercilessly smash the vicious moves of the separatist forces for escalating confrontation against reunification, and certainly usher in the new era of independent reunification and peaceful prosperity that proudly advances in the spirit of "By our nation itself".
