Dermot Hudson , KFA UK Chairman, Chairman of the Juche Idea Study Group and President of the Association for the Study of Songun Politics sent a list of questions to the Pyongyang Mission of the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front of south Korea .
Here are the answers from the AINDF:
Some days ago, I received your email requesting view of the Pyongyang Mission in connection with favorable situation is being created on the Korean Peninsula.
After making a deep studying on the questions raised by you, I would like to inform you of view of the Pyongyang Mission in some aspects.
First, our view on Libyan style denuclearization touted by the US.
Of late, the Libyan style of denuclearization is hotly debated in the US as the scheduled DPRK-US summit is approaching.
National security advisor Bolton, US vice-president Pence and other senior US officials of the White House are making reckless remarks “nuclear abandonment first, compensation later”, while taking about the Libyan style of nuclear abandonment and “complete, verifiable and irrevocable denuclearization”.
These allegations are far from any negotiated settlement of the issue and they reveal a sinister scheme to impose on the DPRK what Libya and Iraq suffered after leaving themselves at the mercy of powers.
As you know, the victory of the WPK's line was won and thus the struggle of the Korean people who worked hard to acquire a powerful treasured sword for defending peace was successfully concluded and the firm guarantee for an eternal foundation for the prosperity of the posterity was provided.
No nuclear test and intermediate-range and inter-continental ballistic rocket test-fire are necessary for the DPRK, given that the completion of nuclear weaponization was verified.
The DPRK declared that it will discontinue nuclear test and inter-continental ballistic rocket test-fire from April 21, Juche 107 (2018).
As the mission of the northern nuclear test ground has come to an end it was dismantled on May 24 under the global spotlight.
The DPRK made its clear stand that it will make every possible effort for peace of humankind and worldwide nuclear disarmament.
Mistaking the DPRK’s magnanimity and generous measures for expression of weakness, the US is trying to bill them as the results of their sanctions and pressure campaign. The US advertises the fact that it would offer economic compensation and benefits in return for the DPRK’s nuclear abandonment.
It is preposterous that comparing the DPRK with Libya, bended to the US, that ended up in destruction. The US bigwigs are still ignorant of the DPRK.
The AINDF fully supports the DPRK’s attitude and standpoint.
Next, I would like to mention about the “policy change” in the DPRK much touted in the West.
The 3rd Plenary Meeting of the 7th Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea declared with pride victorious conclusion of line of simultaneously developing the two fronts and advanced new strategic line of concentrating all efforts on the socialist economic construction.
It is not “policy change” and it is strange to “reform” and “opening” advertised by the West.
The DPRK will take the road of independence, and socialism chosen by itself by dint of self-development and science in any adversity.
A reality will tell what eye-popping change would take place in the DPRK.
When you visit the DPRK you will witness rapid progress of the DPRK and you will keenly feel the “policy change” in the DPRK vociferated by the West is nonsensical.
Next, I would like to mention about withdrawal of the US troops from south Korea and the south Koreans’ struggle for abolition of the “National Security Law”.
Independence, democracy and reunification are the final goal of the AINDF and the south Korean people.
To this end, the US troops in south Korea should be withdrawn and the NSL stamping out the popular resistance should be abolished.
The pullout of the US forces from south Korea and abolition of all legal and institutional mechanism blocking reunification and prosperity of the nation are essential demand for realizing the righteous cause of the south Korean people and peace and independent reunification of the Korean Peninsula.
It is an impending issue in view of improving inter-Korean relations and the scheduled DPRK-US summit thanks to proactive effort of the DPRK.
The AINDF and people of various circles will launch a vigorous drive to drive out the US troops, the source of national division and an obstacle to Korea’s reunification, from south Korea as early as possible and abolish the NSL and other fascist laws hampering inter-Korean reconciliation and unity.
We hope your organizations would make active solidarity campaign such as release of statements, protest letters and picket to support the south Korean people’s action to withdraw the US troops from south Korea and abolish the NSL and treacherous acts of the opposition Liberty Korea Party and conservative forces against the April 27 Declaration.
Your solidarity campaign would offer a great inspiration to the Korean people’s drive for independence, democracy, reunification, peace and prosperity.
Next, I would like to mention on dispatch of the UK’s warships to the waters off the Korean Peninsula.
Some days ago, Max Thunder with involvement of many stealth fighters was conducted in south Korea. Thus the scheduled inter-Korean high-level talks came to rupture.
The UK’s engagement in the hostile acts of the US is an anachronistic act and an intolerable challenge to the Korean nation and humankind desirous of peace on the Korean Peninsula.
Had the UK sincerely wishes peace and reunification of the Korean Peninsula, it should not join the US reckless military action. We hope your organization would spare no efforts to check the moves of the British government pursuant to the US.
These are my views on the questions you asked me.
