Pyongyang, September 16 (KCNA) -- Taken aback by the DPRK's successful nuclear warhead explosion test for self-defense, the Japanese reactionaries are getting frantic with campaign against the DPRK and Chongryon (General Association of Korean Residents in Japan).
The chief executive of Japan cried out for ratcheting up sanctions
against the DPRK and the ruling and opposition parties agreed to adopt a
"resolution critical of north Korea" at the Houses of Representatives
All papers and TVs of Japan are busy airing programs accusing the
DPRK in a bid to rapidly build up public opinion critical of the DPRK.
Against this backdrop right-wing gangsters of Japan have flocked to the
Central Hall of Chongryon since Sept. 9 to perpetrate all sorts of
They brought dozens of loudspeaker vans around the hall to spout
endless litany of such invectives that north Korea's ballistic rockets
fell on exclusive economic zone of Japan, Tokyo condemns north Korea's
nuclear warhead explosion test and it would expel Chongryon from Japan,
creating a terror-ridden atmosphere there.
Groups of more than 10 gangsters attempted to break into the hall, a
sign of persistent threat and blackmail against Chongryon and Koreans
Such ceaseless hooliganism is nothing but a ruckus of those much
scared by the DPRK's might increasing as the days go by under the banner
of Songun as it is a clear manifestation of the Japanese reactionaries'
persistent hostile policy toward the DPRK and Chongryon.
The gravity of the situation lies in that it is a deliberate and
premeditated politically-motivated provocation aimed to incite the
atmosphere of confrontation with the DPRK in the whole Japanese society
by tarnishing the prestige and image of Chongryon, overseas Koreans
organization of the DPRK, and intensifying persecution and pressure upon
With nothing can the Japanese reactionaries cover up their
anti-DPRK, anti-Chongryon campaign as they have intentionally and
systematically patronized the hooliganism of the right-wing gangsters
under the guise of "people's sentiment."
The Korean people can hardly repress their towering resentment at
the Japanese reactionaries who are painting themselves as "victims" and
exploiting their campaign for intensifying the suppression of Chongryon,
oblivious of the idea of making apology and reparation for the hideous
crimes the Japanese imperialists committed against the Koreans in the
Suppression of Chongryon can never be pardoned as it is another wanton violation of the sovereignty of the DPRK.
The DPRK will never remain a passive onlooker to this repressive
campaign but resolutely counter the Japanese reactionaries' despicable
politically-motivated terrorism and persistent crackdown upon Chongryon
and Koreans in Japan.
The Japanese authorities should be held fully responsible for the
right-wing gangsters' hooliganism, stop the ceaseless provocations and
sternly punish those responsible for it.
The DPRK will closely watch the behavior of the Japanese authorities. -0
