KCNA Commentary Rebukes Japan's Smear Campaign against DPRK

Pyongyang, May 26 (KCNA) -- The Japan police recently announced that a "specified missing person" was located in the country. They have so far claimed that "his possible abduction by north Korea can not be ruled out".

This has given the lie to the story about "abduction" touted by the Japanese reactionaries.

It is not the first time that the specified persons who were reported to have gone missing were discovered in Japan.

A person whom they claimed to have been abducted by north Korea emerged as a dead body inside the premise of a second-hand ship import and export company in Chiba Prefecture in August 2013. There are other ample examples of the discovery of "specified missing persons", when counting only those revealed by the Japanese media, notably those in September in 2013, November in 2014, June and October in 2015, and June and December in 2016.

This clearly proves the absurdity of the "abduction issue" touted by the Japanese authorities.

The increase on the number of missing persons, a serious social problem in Japan, is just anti-human rights profile of the island country.

The number of those who give up everything and turn into "outcast without identities" for such reasons as debts, unemployment, difficulty in schoolwork, and botched marriage life claims 100 000 in Japan every year.

There emerged a company called "overnight relocation" which earns money by helping people take to flight to shock the public.

No wonder, a movie-man of a country is shooting a documentary film called "Disappeared People" featuring the wretched life of the Japanese who live a desolate life without any social relations.

However, the Japanese politicians set up plot-breeding organizations related to the "abduction issue" in the government, Diet and society from long ago and have engaged in evil activities of all descriptions at the expense of huge amount of money to convince the Japanese and the world people of the "abduction" by north Korea.

Recently they kicked up huge anti-DPRK racket called the "rally of families of abduction victims" by deliberately linking with the DPRK tens of thousands of missing persons whose number far exceeds that of the "abduction victims" fabricated by them.

The Japanese reactionaries' racket for "solution to the abduction issue" is all about evading historical responsibility for their unprecedented bloody crimes committed by the Japanese imperialists in the past and justifying their hostile policy toward the DPRK.

The Abe group is made up of the most shameless and wicked men with good hands at swindling and plot-breeding.

It is a pipedream for Japan to think of attaining its dirty aim by spreading the threadbare "abduction issue".

The more loudly the Japanese politicians get vocal about the issue, the more offences it will commit before the Koreans and the world people.

Humankind will never pardon those reactionaries of history who deceive their own people and the world people to become a military giant and to realize the ambition of reinvasion.

The Japanese rulers are fated to meet miserable end of plunging into a trap set by themselves. -0-

Liberty Party of Korea. A Pansori Tragedy. KFA Spain

Liberty Party of Korea. A Pansori Tragedy.

The Pansori (판소리 in Korean language) is a traditional music style similar to spanish cante jondo (deep sing in english, a type of flamenco) . In this style are sang injustices with not vengeance and tragedies.

By Lorenzo Ramírez

This party is named a lot in the whole Korean peninsula in the last times. Ideologically is related to the reactionary ideas of the Partido Popular of Spain (conservative party that comes from Francoism), Taiwanese Kuomintang or the Republican Party of the USA. Not only that, all these parties belongs to the International Democrat Union. An international ideologically liberal, conservative and anticommunist.

This party held relationships via the WACL (World Anticommunist League) widely known as WLFD (World League for Freedom and Democracy) with neonazi and fascist parties and organizations such as CEDADE in Spain, Italian Social Movement -MSI (ideological son of the Fascist Party of Mussolini) and the British National Front.

This party started in 1963 with the name: “Democrat Republican Party” with Park Chung Hee, former president of South Korea and ancient collaborationist of the Japanese invaders under the name of Masao Takagi. This person, after his reelection in his third term , changed the constitution for make it for his custom (Yusin constitution or 3rd Korean Republic)  after an auto-coup d’état and the creation of one-party system in a regime of repression against communist, political murders and total repression against the non-liberal. This sir, finally was executed by the Korean people.

After his execution, take the presidency other president of the same party: Chun Doo Hwan. He changed the name of the party to “Democratic Justice Party”. This president was terribly famous by the Gwangju massacre (of that massacre was the anniversary some days ago) with his premier Kim Jong Pil. Both were sentenced for more of 20 years of jail for that crime against the Korean people in 1997. Chun was into the death row until 1997.

After this continues the same party with Ro Tae U, he also changed the name to the party to “New Korea Party”. This individual was sentenced to jail too with charges of high corruption. The name was changed other time with a fusion with a minor party as “Gramd National Party”.

There was two presidents of another party, Kim Dae Jung and Roh Moo Hyun, during both mandates existed the best interkorean relationship until today. Both presidents passed away in strange circumstances.

Roh Mu Hyun felt with an impeachment and appeared Lee Muyng Bak, ancient mayor of Seoul and  ultra christian (Personal friend of George W. Bush) of the Great National party. This individual breaks all the relationships with DPRK and suppresses every dissident movement.

Then, the party is re-named as “Saenuri” and won the elections the daughter of the dictator Park Chung Hee. Ms. Park Geun Hye. She and Lee are now imprisoned for high corruption. During the presidency of this person was the Sewol tragedy, surrounded of many irregularities by part of high officcials.  The final political days of this woman was by an impeachment. After that, they were an escition into the party, with Saenuri and Liberty Party of Korea, inheritor of the politics of this criminal party.
For ending, every presidents of this party met very near the courts or executed by the people. This answers to the Pansori tragedy and the Han feeling of contained rage without revenge by Korean people.


On Wednesday, 22nd May an article was released by NK News entitled "Leaving The British Friends of North Korea". The piece authored by Oliver Hotham was about the time spent by former KFA member Alex Meads within the Korean Friendship Association. Oliver Hotham's article carried alot of inaccuracies and distortions of reality, attempting to portray the UK KFA as a "cult-like" body and as an extremist organisation.(in fact the article was  basically entirely false -ed) The UK KFA is infact a broad-based organisation promoting understanding and solidarity with the DPRK (North Korea) and striving for the peace and reunification on the Korean peninsula. In the UK KFA we have members from different social & ethnic backgrounds, from various political parties and social organisations.

The main reason for Mr.Meads suspension and then eventual expulsion from the ranks of the UK KFA was due to a serious complaint of racism which was made directly to the Headquarters of the International KFA. A UK KFA member  came out with allegations that Mr.Alex Meads verbally abused him in a racist and xenophobic manner during an altercation at a national meeting of the UK KFA on April 6th. Following this initial accusation by the member, other similar incidents have come to light, including ones where a whole delegation from the Spanish Section of the KFA was racially insulted by Alex Meads in August 2017, in Pyongyang, the DPRK. The KFA gave Mr.Meads ample opportunity to rebuff these allegations and to overturn the decision which was passed by the International KFA headquartered in Spain. Alex Meads could have chosen to have communicated his concerns over this decision to other members of the KFA, but instead went straight to hostile elements with his expose.

There were a whole host of incidents concerning Mr.Meads behaviour. While on a tour of the DPRK in September 2018, was openly mocking the Supreme Leadership of Peoples Korea in front of the Korean guides. At times was very rude to the delegation's Korean guide. In the Kumsusan Palace of The Sun (where the Great Leaders are laid to rest) Mr Meads had his arms crossed and was pushing the Korean guide Mr.Li forward. The delegation members found Mr.Meads conduct in the DPRK surprising given his level of knowledge of the DPRK and his previous commitment On the visit of the KFA delegation to the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the DPRK, Mr.Meads repeatedly came out with comments of a racist, chauvinistic, classist and homophobic character. In the NK News article, it was put across that a delegation member had said to Mr Meads "being perverted by a bourgeois education" whereas the term "influenced" was used. It is known that this person had attended a public school (private school). The said individual while on route to Pyongyang via Beijing uttered such expressions as "Do all Chinese people look the same". Even at Heathrow Airport Mr.Meads gave the finger to the portrait of Her Majesty The Queen, in front of security personnel.

I have found the issue of expulsion a rather distressing one and should only be resorted to as the last term measure. When Mr.Meads was The Commissar of the UK KFA he began to see enemies and infiltrators everywhere. Mr.Meads took it upon himself to act as a sort of Witchfinder General within the KFA, where the expulsion began the norm, not the exception. Many KFA members were expressing grave concern at the rate and frequency of these expulsions, which was impacting the reputation of the UK KFA. One vindictive example was the unwarranted expelling of a young Pro-DPRK Youtuber, in which Mr.Meads took great pleasure. One expulsion which was justified was with a person who had Far Right connections and was kicked out for no other reason. Mr.Meads was highly regarded as an energetic and highly committed member of the UK KFA and been at the forefront of the KFA activities. It is a shame to have seen such an ultra-loyalist turned into someone working with reactionary Anti-DPRK forces and warmongers. Mr.Meads was also a member of the New Communist Party for some years and it is alleged that he was also associated with front organisations of the Conservative Party.

There have been attempts to silence the voice of the KFA and halt the work of spreading the truth about the DPRK and campaigning for Peace in Korea. We must resist the efforts of those malevolent elements who wish to outlaw displays of friendship with the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea, and the KFA has always operated within the scope of UK legislation. The activity of the KFA will continue and become further diversified, bringing all peace-loving and progressive people to support the just cause of the Korean people!!

S. Korean Authorities Should Break with Idea of Confrontation: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, May 25 (KCNA) -- Recently, the U.S. Strategic Command made public that the south Korean military authorities took part for the first time in the nuclear attack drill Global Thunder that took place secretly at an air force base in North Dakota State, U.S. in November last year.

As known, Global Thunder drill is an annual global nuclear war drill that has been conducted in secrecy under the direction of the U.S. Strategic Command with the involvement of the 5th Bombing Group with B-52Hs and the 91st Missile Group with Minuteman-3s.

The U.S. had openly claimed in 2017 that one of the main purposes of the Global Thunder drill is to get familiar with the operation for striking the nuclear facilities in the DPRK.

Then, we cannot but ask the south Korean military authorities what happened in the Korean peninsula last year.

They signed the historic April 27 Panmunjom Declaration, the September Pyongyang Joint Declaration and the north-south agreement on military field last year. However, they went so shameless as to take part in the U.S. nuclear attack drill aimed at a preemptive attack on the DPRK behind the scene. This is another perfidious act against the compatriots in the north.

Such act is just one of many typical examples of disguised hostile acts persisted in by the south Korean military in collusion with the U.S. against the trend of the north-south reconciliation and peace.

The south Korean military, failing to drop the past evil habit of perpetrating military provocations, has ceaselessly conducted joint military drills in collusion with the U.S. against the DPRK though they had to be ceased.

The U.S.-south Korea joint military drill Alliance 19-1 and joint air drill were conducted in March and April this year. And plans of war drills against the DPRK are being mapped out even at this moment.

Nevertheless, the south Korean military is asserting that the military drills conducted by the army of the DPRK within its territorial land and waters under its regular drill plan are running counter to the idea of the north-south agreement on military field.

This is just the height of shamelessness.

The south Korean military is pursuing military confrontation, far from making efforts to develop the north-south relations and preserve peace and security on the Korean peninsula. This proves that the south Korean military doesn't actually want north-south reconciliation and cooperation and peace.

The above-said disguised act of the south Korean military, to say nothing of the open hostile acts they committed so far, constitutes an unpardonable provocation against the compatriots in the north. It draws bitterer disillusion and anger of all Koreans.

Dark cloud comes before a storm.

The south Korean authorities should cleanse themselves of the black-hearted confrontational idea and take a proper stand to honestly implement the north-south declarations and the agreement on military field.

All Koreans will never pardon the confrontational moves of the south Korean military going against the trend of north-south reconciliation and peace. -0

ASSPUK, JISGE,UK KFA and BSCPRKP support indictment of DPRK CPRC of LKP

http://http:  email \                                           \                                                                        
               London 25th  of May Juche 108(2019)
The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK), the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE) ,the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) and nd the British Solidarity Committee for the Peace and Reunification in the Korean Peninsula(BSCPRKP today issued a joint statement in support of the indictment issued by  Reunification and Agitation Department of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country (CPRC) of the DPRK ;
   The indictment correctly characterises the so-called Liberal Korea Party" (LKP) of south Korea as
 'a group of gangsters that have inherited the "tradition" of fascist dictators'.This is absolutely true . The LKP is the party of fascist dictatorship in south Korea and a descendant of past puppet fascist regimes in south Korea. The origins of the LKP go back to the days of the horrendous puppet fascist dictator Syngham Rhee .Although this party has used many names throughout its history such as
"Democratic Justice Party", "Democratic Liberal Party", "New Korea Party", "Grand National Party", "Saenuri Party" , it is basically the same fascist party . The LKP is just the latest incarnation of this clique.
  Throughout its history it has repressed the south Korean people by enacting laws such as the 'National Security Law ' which prohibits the freedom of thought in south Korea and makes leftist ideology punishable by up to 7 years in prison. The past south Korean puppet regimes have been linked to international fascism through the 'World Anti-Communist League ' which was in turn linked to neo nazis including the notorious National Front party in Britain.
   Although the fascist puppets like to boast about 'prosperity ' and say they are for increasing people's living standards in fact south Koreans suffered poverty and unemployment . Under the Lee Myung Bak puppet fascist regime   5.2 million were unemployed and 10 million in poverty . Park Geun Hye
the daughter of Park Chung Hee, who was ousted from office , spent a lot of money on going around the world to sign free trade agreements which totally ruined the south Korean economy .
   The LKP is doing all it can to sabotage and derail any movers towards Korean reunification and inter-Korean co-operation.They slandered the inter-Korean summits held last year .
  As the indictment says ' No matter how loudly the LKP group including Hwang may cry out for "people's livelihood" and "security", they can never cover up their sordid nature as the fascist party, the group of sycophantic traitors and confrontational maniacs and hotbed of evils.'.
 We support the indictment of the  Reunification and Agitation Department of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country (CPRC) of the DPRK and urge that it is widely distributed and read !
More needs to be done internationally and in the UK to expose the nature of the LKP . We reiterate
our call for the dissolution of the LKP and the punishment of its leaders !

ASSPUK, JISGE , UK KFA and BSCPRKP say US to blame for rupture in DPRK -US talks

http://http:  email
               London 24th  of May Juche 108(2019)
The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK), the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE) ,the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) and nd the British Solidarity Committee for the Peace and Reunification in the Korean Peninsula(BSCPRKP today issued a joint statement concerning the rupture in DPRK-US talks ;
  As is well known the 2nd DPRK-US summit in Hanoi , Vietnam  ending without an agreement and DPRK-US talks have come to a grinding halt, basically they have been ruptured . This is 100 per cent entirely due to the arrogant ,arbitrary and high-handed attitude displayed by the US side at the Hanoi summit.The US did not act in an honest way but instead attempted to force impossible demands on the DPRK.
  The DPRK did its best to implement the 12th June DPRK-US joint statement. As clarified by the answer of the spokesperson of the DPRK Foreign Ministry on the 24th of May , the DPRK " crucial and meaningful measures of a strategically decisive nature including the discontinuation of nuclear test and test-fire of intercontinental ballistic missile, and we also took a broadminded step towards the realization of the repatriation of the American POW/MIA remain".
   However the US response was not only to continue with its anti-DPRK hostile policy and evenly brazenly demanded the unilateral disarmament of the DPRK at the Hanoi summit.
  The DPRK through its foreign ministry spokesperson has said that "We hereby make it clear once again that the United States would not be able to move us even an inch with the device it is now weighing in its mind, and the further its mistrust and hostile acts towards the DPRK grow, the fiercer our reaction will be....Unless the United States puts aside the current method of calculation and comes forward with a new method of calculation, the DPRK-U.S. dialogue will never be resumed and by extension, the prospect for resolving the nuclear issue will be much gloomy".
  Thus it is the responsibility of the US to take genuine measures to restart the dialogue otherwise the process cannot move forward.If the peace and dialogue process collapses then the blame will lay with the US .
 We support the just stand of the DPRK and call for the US to end its hostile policy towards the DPRK .
