Pyongyang, June 14 (KCNA) -- The North, South and Overseas Headquarters of the Pan-National Alliance for Korea's Reunification (Pomminryon) made public a joint statement on Sunday to mark the 15th anniversary of June 15 North-South Joint Declaration.
The statement said:
The June 15 joint declaration serves as a landmark and great
programme common to the Korean nation for peace and reunification of the
The territory of the country was divided against the will of the
nation, and the way for its peace, reunification and co-prosperity has
been blocked owing to the outsiders' interference.
This deplorable situation teaches the truth that rejecting the outsiders is the only way out for the nation.
The joint declaration is the most fair and reasonable landmark for
reunification and a touchstone distinguishing reunification from
division as it is meant to reunify the country in the idea of By Our
Nation Itself, irrespective of differing ideologies and systems in the
north and the south.
The essence of the joint declaration is to resolve all the issues
arising in the cause of national reunification with the concerted
efforts of all Koreans.
Difficulties in the movement for the national reunification can be
overcome in the spirit of By Our Nation Itself, and flunkeyism and
treachery inciting division and confrontation can turn into independence
and patriotism under the banner of By Our Nation Itself.
The war threats coming across the Pacific Ocean will become ineffective when all Koreans pool their efforts.
Clarifying the will and determination for the national
reunification, the North, South and Overseas Headquarters of Pomminryon
continued in its statement:
We will invariably hold fast to the joint declaration, the keynote
of which is the spirit of By Our Nation Itself, as the lifeline of the
movement for the national reunification.
Keeping in mind the precious lesson that the nation can have an
independent life only when it struggles and gets united, we will take
the lead in the struggle to preserve independence and peace of the
country against the forces seeking national division, traitors and U.S.
and Japanese aggressors in the spirit of the joint declaration no matter
how the situation may change.
Korea is one and the Korean nation is one no matter how the world and the situation may change. -0
