Pyongyang, August 19 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the National Defence Commission (NDC) of the DPRK Wednesday released a statement as regards the "statement to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII" made by Japanese Prime Minister Abe on August 14.
Abe's "statement" on the 70th anniversary of the Japanese
imperialists' defeat in the war should have been full of deep remorse
and heartfelt apology for the bloody crime-woven past which inflicted
tremendous damage and sufferings on the Korean and other Asian peoples,
the statement said, and went on:
No sooner had Abe's "statement" been published than it aroused hatred and resentment of public at home and abroad.
Abe's "statement" is a blatant challenge to the sovereignty and
dignity of the DPRK, international justice and conscience of mankind as
it concealed, curtailed and avoided the crimes from the beginning to the
Abe is a typical man of modern samurais who carried forward
craftiness and belligerency and is accustomed to ultra-right reactionary
idea as he is running the whole gamut of gimmick to bury the
unprecedented hair-raising crimes into the oblivion of history.
Looking back on the past, what Abe buckled down to right after he
became the driver of a militarist chariot running headlong into the road
of reinvasion was to revise the constitution in order to totally deny
the legal position of Japan as a war criminal state and defeated state
which is unable to make any military threat or use and have army after
the Second World War.
The army and people of the DPRK will certainly and unconditionally
force the Japanese reactionaries, the sworn enemy, to pay thousand-fold
price generation after generation.
If Abe does not want to face nightmare-like tragedy on this planet,
he should bring his knees before the Korean people and mankind,
unconditionally apologize for the unheard-of crimes and make honest
reparation for them, showing his will in practice to prevent Japan from
repeating the crime-woven past.
This is the best way for saving Japan from running fast to ruin. -0-
