               22nd of July 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 the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification in Korea (BSCPRKP) issued a joint statement on the 66th anniversary of the victory of the Korean people , led by the great leader Generalissimo Kim Il Sung , in the great Fatherland Liberation War against the US imperialists;
   66 years agothe Korean people led by great generalissimo Kim Il Sung defeated US imperialism on the battlefied .On July 27th  is celebraed by the Korean people as their second liberation day .It is an inspiration not only for the Korean people but for Juche idea followers, Songun idea followers and anti-imperialist fighters the world over so July 27th is celebrated across the globe from Bogotá to Belfast !
  Dear respected Chairman Kim Jong Un said "Our July 27 is the second Day of Liberation when our people defended with honour their country's dignity and sovereignty from the brigandish aggression by the U.S. imperialists, and also the day of proud victors that put the U.S. imperialists, who were recklessly attempting to gain hegemony in the world and enslave it, on a downhill march towards ruin."
                                       



  The heroic and glorious KPA commanded by the great leader Marshal Kim Il Sung tore the guts out of US imperialism.The US imperialists lost over : 1,567,128 men including 405,498 US soldiers, 1,130,965 south Korean puppet troops, and 30,665 soldiers of their satellite states were killed, wounded or captured; 12,224 airplanes includ­ing "air fortress B-29" were downed, damaged or captured, 7,695 guns, 3,255 233 tanks and armoured cars were lost; and 564 warships and vessels including the heavy cruiser Baltimore and the flagship of the Seventh Fleet Missouri were sunk or damaged. The loss suffered by the US imperialists was nearly 2.3 times greater than what they had suffered in the four years of the Pacific War during World War II. Even official US statistics showed during each of the three years of the Korean war they lost double the troops for each year of the Vietnam war.
    US general Mark Clark lamented mournfully that he was the first US commander to conclude an armistice without a victory .
   The Fatherland Liberation War of the Korean people was an unequal battle as the US imperialists threw in huge armed forces plus the troops of 15 of their satellite countries as well the Japanese militarists not too mention the south Korean puppets. The US imperialists used barbaric methods of warfare exceeding those of the Hitlerlite Nazis. They used germ and chemical warfare and carried out horrendous massacres. All these failed to subdue the Korean people who under the wise leadership of the great revolutionary leader Marshal Kim Il Sung achieved a great victory. The forces of the heroic KPA defeated the so called "Invincible US 24th Division", taking its commander General Dean prisoner. Dean was the first US general to be captured by an opposing side. The KPA turned Height 1211 into a hill of heartbreak for the US imperialist aggressors.
                                     


   The KPA and Korean people fought in the revolutionary spirit of self- reliance based on the Juche Idea.The great revolutionary leader Marshal Kim Il Sung stated“We must solve our problems no matter who is helping us and what help we get......Victory must be won by our strength” " It was their efforts that were primary in defeating the US imperialist aggressors"
   In the Fatherland Liberation War commanded by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung ,the reactionary bourgeois military theory was smashed by the Juche- orientated revolutionary military strategy and theory. Generalissimo Kim Il Sung continually stressed that the outcome of war is not determined by weapons or technology but by those who wield the weapons. The Fatherland Liberation War was a burning crucible of Songun. The victory of the Korean people led by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung shattered  revisionist and pacifist theories about peaceful co-existence and 'non-violence'
 The Korean People's Army commanded by the great leader generalissimo Kim Il Sung was a true people's army, an army of justice and liberation. It assisted  the people . A strong spirit of Army-People unity prevailed throughout  society. Summing up the significance of the victory in the Fatherland Liberation War. The great revolutionary leader Marshal  Kim Il Sung said
"In this great struggle our people fought determinedly as one in mind under the correct leadership of the party and government and thereby withstood the harsh trials of war honourably and won a historic victory inflicting an ignominious defeat on US imperialism and its running dogs"
The great leader comrade Kim Jong Il said
 "It was a great revolutionary war of worldwide significance, a war in which our people defended their motherland and inflicted the first-ever defeat on US imperialism, the ringleader of world imperialism, by waging a national, heroic struggle."
 Dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un said that the victory in the Fatherland Liberation War " was a military miracle unprecedented in the war history of mankind and a great feat of historical significance never seen before in the nation's history spanning 5 000 years."
     The Fatherland Liberation War ended in victory due to the Juche orientated military tactics, Juche-orientated military thought and Songun revolutionary leadership of the great leader supreme commander generalissimo Kim Il Sung and the sublime heroism of the KPA. The myth of US invincibility was smashed to smithereens in the Fatherland Liberation War.  The victory in the Fatherland Liberation War inspired national liberation and revolutionary movements all over the world to struggle against the colonial system of the US-led imperialists bringing about an era of decline for  US imperialism  an era of anti -imperialism . US imperialism's defeat in Korea preceded its defeat in Vietnam and elsewhere. The Korean people's victory in the Fatherland liberation war was a great contribution to the world revolutionary movement as it showed that US imperialism could be stopped in its tracks and beaten.                  
   Glory to the Korean people and the KPA on the occasion of the 66th anniversary of the victory in the great Fatherland Liberation War against the US imperialists.

Superiority of Juche-based , popular democratic local elections in People's Korea

                                                       


Local elections have just taken place in People's Korea yesterday (21st of July) . The people of the DPRK elected new deputies to provincial (municipal), city (district) and county people's assemblies which will democratically run local government in the DPRK.
99.98 per cent of electors voted . Compare to this to the average turnout of 35 per cent in local elections for England in 2018 .
People in the DPRK vote in elections because they have a genuine stake in society , they are exercising people's power rather deciding on which incompetent is going to put up council tax . In the DPRK deputies to local people's assemblies are not just representatives of the people , they are servants of the people.

Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un Takes Part in Election of Deputies to Provincial, City and County People's Assemblies

                                                                       

 Pyongyang, July 22 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and supreme commander of the armed forces of the DPRK, visited the polling station of Sub-constituency No. 94 of Constituency No. 201 of South Hamgyong Province Sunday to take part in the election of deputies to the provincial, city and county people's assemblies.

Supreme Leader of the Party, state and armed forces Kim Jong Un received ballots from the chairperson of the sub-constituency committee and voted for Ju Song Ho and Jong Song Sik who are candidates for deputies.

He met the candidates and warmly encouraged them to become the faithful servants of the people by fulfilling their duties so as to live up to the anticipation of the people, being aware of being the representatives of the people.

He was accompanied by Jo Yong Won, Kim Yong Su, Ri Yong Sik, Hyon Song Wol and other senior officials of the Party Central Committee. -0-

Genuine Welfare Policy Impossible in Capitalist Society: Rodong Sinmun

Pyongyang, July 21 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Sunday stresses in an article that it is an out-and-out deception and daydream to build a "welfare society" in capitalist countries where the gap between the rich and the poor is extremely widening and all sorts of social evils are rampant.

The article says that the building of "welfare society" much touted by politicians in capitalist countries is nothing but an advertisement for covering up the inequality and anti-popular nature of the capitalist society.

It goes on:

A tiny handful of capitalists suppress and dominate the popular masses in the capitalist society. The state power is seized by monopoly capitalists and reactionary ruling quarters serving them.

There is no representative of workers and peasants in parliaments of capitalist countries. The same is true of governmental organs.

Politicians in capitalist countries are all mouthpiece for the interests of business giants and their servants.

They make all sorts of pledges during presidential and parliamentary election campaigns to curry favor with electors, but deny all of them after taking power.

Class antagonism and conflict reach an extreme in the capitalist society.

It is self-evident that capitalists can never have mercy on the working masses as the former remains hostile to the latter.

Therefore, the enforcement of genuine welfare policy for the people is impossible in the capitalist society. -0-

KCNA Commentary Hits Japan for Its Unreasonable Restrictions on Exports to South Korea

Pyongyang, July 19 (KCNA) -- Amid the ever mounting anti-Japanese sentiment in south Korea over the restrictions on exports to south Korea, the chief Cabinet Secretary of Japan said on July 16 that the restrictions were not a retaliatory measure but they were taken for "appropriate control of exports aimed at security".

His remarks are no more than vague explanation made by the guy who was upset by bitter public protest against issues like "suspicions of south Korea's exports of strategic materials to north Korea", all of which Japan described as pretexts for the restrictions after the south Korean court decisions ordering Japanese companies to compensate victims of forced labor during Japan's colonial rule.

Question is, just how the Japanese authorities explained, why they chose the present juncture for the restrictions on exports to south Korea.

Externally Japan finds itself isolated in the international arena, marginalized by the trend of peace in the Korean peninsula and the region, and faces an important political event, that is, the election of the House of Councilors at home.

It can be said that now is a crucial political moment for the Japanese politicians.

The Japanese reactionaries versed in drawing water to their mill at the sacrifice of others try to sacrifice south Korea, which they consider as an entity easy to deal with in the region, in a bid to get rid of their crisis at home and abroad.

And they are trying to destroy the trend of peace on the Korean Peninsula by putting pressure upon south Korea through the restrictions in a bid to create a political atmosphere favorable for realizing their wild militaristic ambition.

Furthermore, they seek to attain a medium- and long-term goal to deal a blow at the south Korean economy, arouse dissatisfaction at the authorities among south Koreans and thus help the south Korean pro-Japanese traitors, who were driven into a tight corner, come back to power.

On the other hand, they have carefully calculated to make their master undesirous of the aggravated south Korea-Japan ties consider the interests of Japan marginalized over the issue of the Korean peninsula.

They also seek to give a positive impact on the unity of and support for the rightwing forces at home through tightened restrictions on exports to south Korea so as to hold elections of the House of Councilors without difficulties and realize their long-desired aims including the revision of the Constitution.

Doing so will suffice Japan's political and diplomatic interests to help it make up for the loss from the deteriorating south Korea-Japan relations.

South Korean media and civic and public organizations stage a courageous struggle to lay bare the shameless sinister aim of Japan and protest against the unreasonable retaliatory economic measures.

This is the eruption of towering hatred and anger of the south Koreans towards the Japanese reactionaries attempting to wreck the hard-won peace in the Korean peninsula and the region by realizing their sinister political ambition at the sacrifice of south Korea.

All the fellow countrymen should take this opportunity to properly show the sworn enemy the strong spirit and mettle of the Korean people who love justice and never tolerate injustice. -0-

Japan Should Atone for its Past Crimes for Its Future: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, July 19 (KCNA) -- The shamelessness of Japan denying its past criminal history has reached the extremes.

As it is known, the Japanese authorities responded to a south Korean court's ruling for reparation to the victims of the forcible drafting with such economic retaliatory measure as restrictions on exports to south Korea.

Japan totally denied the decision that targeted private businesses and responded to it with state retaliatory measure.

This is a clear revelation of Japan's intention not to make any acknowledgement, repentance and reparations for the thrice-cursed crimes committed by the Japanese imperialists against the Korean nation in the past.

So tremendous crimes did Japan commit against history and humanity.

In the past century, the Japanese imperialists deprived Korea of its sovereignty. They abducted and drafted a lot of Koreans to drive them to the sites of slave labor and wars of aggression, massacred more than one million and enforced the sexual slavery for their imperial army to reduce 200 000 Korean women into "preys" for its lecherous soldiers.

Every page of Japan's crime-woven history is stained with the blood of the Korean nation.

Japan can never compensate fully to the Korean nation for human, material and moral damage, even though it offers its whole territory.

This being a fact, the Japanese reactionaries are doggedly sidestepping the settlement of the past, far from making a thorough apology and reparation to the Korean people, but are justifying the heinous crimes.

What cannot be concealed is the Abe group's sinister intention to create a political climate favorable to the forthcoming election for the House of Councilors and the militarist revival by fleeing from the past crimes forever and diverting elsewhere the domestic criticism focused on it.

Japan is legally and morally obliged to atone for its crime-woven past before the Korean nation and humanity.

The Japanese reactionaries are shamelessly calling for dialogue, though they are keen on committing sins only to anger the Korean nation.

Firm is the stand and will of the DPRK on the issue of Japan's atonement for its past crimes.

Japan has to make a proper apology and reparation for all the damage and suffering it inflicted on the Korean nation and it should clearly understand that without the apology and reparation, it will never get a ticket for Pyongyang.

Japan should atone for its crime-woven past for its future. -0-

On the Fatherland Liberation War of the Korean People-speech delivered by Dr Dermot Hudson to the seminar of the Brazilian Centre for Songun Politics at Rio State University July 11th


                                                                           

Thank you for inviting me to speak at your seminar .It is a great honour to be here with comrades and friends from Brazilian Centre for the Study of Songun Politics and a great honour to be at Rio State University.
  Today I am going to speak about the Korean War or as it is called in People’s Korea , the Fatherland Liberation War . In 16 days’ time it will be 66 years since US general Mark Clark put his signature on the Korean Armistice Agreement and wearily declared “In carrying out the instructions of my government, I gained the unenviable distinction of being the first United States commander in history to sign an armistice without victory. “The purpose of my speech to this seminar  is to answer two false ideas about the Fatherland Liberation War .The first and biggest one that is contained in history books and repeated over and over again is that the DPRK was responsible for the outbreak of the war. The second one is that the war was not a defeat for the US . Of course there are other myths and misunderstandings, some who worship big countries belittle the self-reliant efforts of the Korean people led by great generalissimo KIM IL SUNG and attribute the victory of the DPRK to other countries .However  today I will focus on the two big myths .
 I think it is relevant to start with pointing out that Korea is one country not two . Before 1945 there was no north or south Korea. Korea from ancient times was one nation and one people. In 1945 an American colonel, one Dean Rusk , who later became a leading figure in US politics, draw a line with a ruler and a pencil across a map of Korea , at the 38th parallel , disregarding natural boundaries such as rivers and counties and provinces . The US troops invaded south Korea on the 8th of September 1945 and created a puppet state. Thus Korea a peaceful, united and homogenous nation was divided by the actions of the Yankee imperialists. Of course it is impossible to invade your own country .However the issue of who provoked the Korean War , is a key issue because it is still used to demonise the DPRK and was invoked as a pretext for the US launching one of the most  barbarous war ever in history . A war in which the US killed 4.2 million Korean people.
The US imperialists, the ringleader of the world imperialism and the international reactionaries, provoked a war in Korea on the 25th of June 1950 by instigating their south Korean puppets to attack the young Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. The US imperialists were hungry for profits and conquest. The US imperialists fought an unjust aggressive war against the Korean people. The US imperialists launched a war of conquest against the DPRK , a war to destroy the Juche-based people's democratic system in the DPRK as well to destroy socialism in Asia and the world.
 The USA had long coveted Korea. In the 19th century they sent various expeditions to Korea. In 1866 the US “General Sherman” sailed up the Taedong river into Pyongyang but it was destroyed due to the struggle of the local people led by Kim Ung U (great grandfather of President Kim Il Sung) . They sent other scouts into Korea and committed plunder.
The US concluded the so called “Korea US - Treaty “ with the Korean feudal government  in 1882. The US seized the gold mines in Korea . Although in the early 20th century Korea became a Japanese colony, the Yanks held the gold mining concessions in Korea The US was actually opposed to Korean independence. During the negotiations at Teheran, Yalta and Potsdam between the 3 big powers the US proposed that Korea should be put under “Trusteeship” for 40 years. Trusteeship would essentially be just another form of colonialism.
. After Korea was liberated in 1945 US troops occupied south Korea on the 8th of September nearly 3 weeks after Japan had been defeated on August 15. At first they ruled through a direct military administration and then through  the puppet regime of Syngham Rhee . Rhee was a corrupt fascist despot hated by the south Korean people .Rhee was discredited as he had embezzled funds from the Korean independence movement in the 1920s. Rhee was fanatically anti-communist. One American writer said of Syngham Rhee ““He is two centuries before fascism—a true Bourbon. “
The US took over the land in south Korea that had been owned by the Japanese and became the biggest landlord in south Korea. In south Korea the people’s committees were dissolved by the US occupation troops , the Communist Party was banned. Leftists and patriots were brutally suppressed. Rhee’s troops along with US troops put down uprisings in Cheju island, killing at least 30,000 people , and  the army mutiny at Ryosu .
The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea was founded on September 9th 1948. The US regarded it as a thorn in their side, right from the start. The US had not wanted a socialist regime in the north of Korea. Moreover, the Korean peninsula had a key strategic position, it was the bridgehead into north east Asia and indeed the entire Asian continent. By conquering the DPRK the US would have troops on the border of the People’s Republic of China and the USSR. This the existence of the DPRK blocked the US’s stepping stone into north east Asia. The victory of the Chinese revolution gave a further impetus to the US to militarily move against the DPRK.
In those days rather than referring to the “containment “of communism, the US talked about the “Rollback “ of communism . John Foster Dulles, US secretary of state was a well-known architect of this policy. Dulles had made a lot of money through dealings with the German Nazi party in the 1930s ..Dulles wrote a book called “War or Peace “ arguing for “liberating “ the socialist countries . He said “We should make it clear ............ in Eastern Europe and Asia , that we do not accept the status quo ........ and eventual liberation is an essential and enduring part of our foreign policy” . In other words the aims of the US was to crush socialism by means of force whether direct military force or other kinds of force.
Internally the US banned the Communist Party and unleashed a wave of anti-communist hysteria known as McCarthyism in which even non-communist liberals were persecuted.
Dissenting opinions were crushed by people being hounded out of jobs , vilified in the media and in some cases imprisoned ( in the most extreme example Ethel and Julius Rosenberg , 2 US communists , were executed on trumped up espionage charges).
The US embarked on a programme of increasing military expenditure. Externally it became very expansionist, establishing military bases all over the world including in south Korea.
The DPRK, a young people’s democracy in the far east , was seen by the US policymakers as a prime testing ground for “rollback “.. The US imperialists would stand better chance of winning a physical war against the socialist world in Asia than trying to wage a war in Europe against the Soviet Union as in Europe the Soviet had a buffer zone between it and the US and their allies . If the US and NATO militarily destroyed East Germany they would still have to also invade Poland before they could put troops on the border of the USSR but by invading the DPRK they could have troops on the borders of the Soviet Union in one swoop . Such a prospect must have been very tempting for the US warmaniacs.
The U.S. imperialists who decided to take the DPRK as the first target of attack for realizing the wild dream of world domination after their illegal occupation of south Korea worked out a plan for the Korean war and made all preparations for it.
They desperately armed the south Korean puppet army with modern war means and raised its war capabilities to use it as the shock force for the war of aggression against the DPRK.
According to an official document released by the U.S. Congress, they handed over more than 145,000 rifles, some 2,000 machine guns and submachine guns, over 2,000 pieces of various calibres, 4,900 odd vehicles, 79 warships and others to the south Korean puppet army in 1949 alone. It is noticeable that the south Korean puppet navy was greatly expanded.
The number of the south Korean puppet troops who were armed with such war equipment and means and trained in the American way reached more than 100,000 as of September 1949. The south Korean puppet troops were controlled by the US through the “American Military Advisory Group in south Korea.
On January 26th 1950 the US concluded the US-south Korea Mutual Defence Treaty.  On the 14th of April 1950   a then secret directive of  US National Security Council directive NSC 68 authorised the start of the Korean war.
The U.S. imperialists deployed most of the south Korean puppet army on the front along the 38th parallel and incessantly perpetrated armed provocations against the DPRK. In1949 the south Korean puppet army intruded into areas of the DPRK such as Mt Songak, Mt Unpha and other areas causing a lot of damage and causalities. The DPRK was attacked a total of 2 ,617 times.
.
The US and south Korea built or expanded airfields, harbours, roads and others in south Korea in an extensive way. At the same time, they worked out a prearranged plan to conceal the armed aggression after the outbreak of the Korean War in an attempt to shift the responsibility for the war provocation on the DPRK.
US Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, the main advocate  and author of the US imperialist anti-communist “Rollback “ strategy visited south Korea in June 1950 only days before the war broke out . His visit cannot have been a coincidence. This is reinforced by the fact that Dulles even visited frontline areas.
 Dulles met with discredited south Korean puppet ruler Syngham Rhee . Rhee had several times talked publicly about “marching north “ and reunifying Korea .Dulles took the south Korean defence minister with him to actually inspect the 38th parallel. This was 6 days before war broke out. Dulles said to the south Korean puppet army “No strong enemy whatever would stand against you. But I hope you will strive ever harder because the day is not so far off when you’ll have to display your great might for your own sake."
Addressing the south Korean puppet “national assembly “ he said "You are not alone. You will never be alone so long as you continue to play worthily your part in the great design for the freedom of human beings.”. What did this mean? . It was basically the green light for the south Korean puppets to ignite the Fatherland Liberation War.
After visiting south Korea Dulles stopped off in Tokyo and met with General Bradley and General Douglas McArthur as well US defence secretary Johnson . Again this meeting cannot have been coincidental. On the 22rd of June Dulles stated, somewhat cryptically and enigmatically, “The United States will soon take some positive action “ It was evident that the meeting was to finalise the provocation of the Korean War.
A book by ex-Soviet specialists and some former DPRK commander called “Echoes of the Korean War” pointed out by  1950 the south Korean puppet army had 95,000 troops most of which were deployed along the 38th parallel or within  close proximity to it whereas the DPRK had about 74,000 troops.
Some figures actually put the size of the Syngham Rhee puppet army as 150,000  troops . This would have meant that they outnumbered the the KPA by 2 to 1 .South Korea’s population was nearly double that of the DPRK’s so it would have been difficult for the DPRK to “invade” the south . The US population was nearly 20 times than of the DPRK and its landmass many times greater than the DPRK. The US had emerged victorious in the second  world war and had won many wars.
 The DPRK was a young country which had just began creating regular armed forces and building munitions factories. Would the DPRK choose to take on the might of the “Greater American Empire “ , the answer is no. It is also inconceivable that the Soviet Union which had lost 20 million people during the Second World War and the newly founded People’s Republic of China would choose to support a war by the DPRK.
McArthur himself said that at the time of the outbreak of the Korean War the DPRK was not had completely mobilised its army. The report of McArthur’s command on the 30th of July 1950 stated only 6 divisions of the north Korean KPA were mobilised on the day the war broke out. Other sources such as British Army captain Julian Tunstall pointed that “On June 25 the Rhee army had six fully equipped divisions sitting just below or quite close to the 38th parallel ... So far it can be judged the KPA had 2 below combat strength divisions on or near the 38th the parallel.”
Other sources such as the CIA and south Korean intelligence services state that there was no evidence prior to June 25th 1950 that the DPRK had prepared forces for an attack on the south .
Ri Song Ga former commander of the 8th Division of the south Korean puppet army  stated  “we had to go into battle from the dawn of 25th June”
On the 23rd of June south Korean puppet forces began an artillery bombardment of the areas north of the 38th parallel.
On the early morning of the 25th June the south Korean forces under the command of the American Military Advisory Group started the attack on the DPRK . The 17th regiment of the south Korean puppet army pushed forward in Taetan and Pyoksong and the First Infantry attacked in the Kaesong area . They intruded 12 kilometres into DPRK territory. The DPRK demanded they stop at once but this was ignored so the DPRK went over to the counteroffensive. It should be noted that the DPRK only launched the counter-offensive after warning south Korea to halt its attack.
The “New York Tribune” of 26 June 1950 reported “south Korean troops  drove across the 38th parallel, which forms the frontier, to capture the  manufacturing town of Haeju,just north of the line”.South Korean radio itself reported that their troops had captured Haeju. Clearly it would have been impossible for the south Koreans to capture unless they had attacked first.
 The well-known US journalist John Gunther wrote in his book “Riddle of McArthur” that a US staff officer in Tokyo on the 25th of June was called to the phone and came back and whispered, “A big story has just broken. The South Koreans have attacked North Korea."’
Some 650 US women and children were evacuated by the Norwegian ship the Reinford at 3am in the morning. US accounts put the war as staring at 6am so how would the US know in advance to plan the evacuation of its nationals?
Choe Dok Sin ,former South Korean Army commander, south Korean foreign minister and South Korean ambassador to the UN stated he saw the secret order of Syngham Rhee(south Korean puppet dictator) to start the war .
The US demanded an emergency meeting of the UN security council. This was held without the presence of the Soviet Union nor of the People’s Republic of China which was kept out of its legitimate seat. No  one from the DPRK was allowed to present their case before the UNSC
Instead the UNSC carried a resolution blaming the DPRK for starting the war and authorising the use of force by UN member nations. Effectively the UNSC was just a kangaroo court for US imperialism. Basically it was a legal justification for the US to rope in a number of other states into the war. The resolution itself was actually contrary to the UN charter which stipulates that the UN could not intervene in the internal affairs of sovereign nations, in the case of the Korean peninsula there were 2 governments established, so any conflict was not a conflict between different nations but essentially a civil war  between rival government so the UN was intervening on one side .
The evidence presented to blame the DPRK was simply a telegram from US ambassador in Seoul John S Muccio. This telegram is a very subjective and sketchy document which refers to ‘reports ‘ etc . As the US ambassador to south Korea, the ambassador of the key belligerent in the Korean War,  Muccio can hardly have been an objective and impartial witness ! More to the point he was not at the 38th parallel on the day so therefore   his so-called  “information “was nothing more than recycled claims of the south Koreans and US military . It is actually thought that Muccio;s “telegram “ was  prepared in advance  and duly used as so-called evidence.
However another giveaway clue to who started the Korean war was the fact that the US admitted its “UN resolution “had been prepared in advance . Assistant Secretary of State John D Hickerson said “We had a skeleton of a resolution, but only in very rough form.”How could US diplomats know that a war was going to start in Korea and prepare a resolution . Moreover the speed that the slow moving, cumbersome and bureaucratic UN moved at to call a meeting and carry the resolution is something quite surprising especially when considering that was in the era before  the internet , email and skype . Normally it can take days and weeks even months to get a resolution through the UN Security Council.  In a congressional hearing the US admitted that its armed forces went into action before the resolution was carried.
The US threw huge armed forces into the war including those armed forces of its satellite countries . To my eternal shame, Britain sent troops to fight against the Korean people on the side of the US. Young British men were basically cannon fodder  for US imperialism . It is significant that the UK found itself fighting not only on the same side as US imperialism but with Apartheid South Africa, Colombia of the death squads, fascist Greece , Haile Selaissie's Ethiopia and other very reactionary regimes against an independent , progressive ,democratic and anti-imperialist government . Thus the Korean war was a totally reactionary one that held back the liberation struggle of the Korean people and the reunification of Korea.
 Indeed the British role in Korea for the past 150 years has been a most shameful one. It was Britain that secretly helped Japan to invade Korea and colonise Korea.
   The government  of Clement Attlee  , which is praised in some quarters but  was actually responsible  for surrendering Britain's independence by taking the UK into NATO  and  also purging communists from the civil service ,was a willing  accomplice in the aggression against the Korean people. Attlee sent young men to fight in Korea against the Korean People's Army commanded by the great leader Marshal KIM IL SUNG. In order to pay for the cost of sending the troops to Korea prescription charges were increased.
   Among the British forces sent to the Korean front was the Royal Ulster Rifles which had suppressed the Irish people and committed many atrocities during the northern Ireland troubles. The British Army held back the reunification of Korea in the 1950s and also held back the reunification of Ireland.
The second myth is that the US was not defeated.  The reason why the Fatherland Liberation War or Korean war is often called the unknown war is that the US does not like to acknowledge its defeat . The right wing and extremely anti-communist  US military historian Bevin Alexander , who himself had been a US army officer during the Korean War, referred to the Fatherland Liberation War as being ‘the first war we lost’
  The Fatherland Liberation War was a truly herculean and titanic struggle which saw the Korean people defeat US imperialism for the first time in world history. It was a David and Goliath Struggle.
 When the war broke out on the 25 June 1950 , the odds against young People's Korea surviving let alone defeating US imperialism seemed very slim indeed because the US had a population  more than 20 times the size of the DPRK's and nearly 100 times the size of the DPRK in terms of landmass. Moreover the US had waged over a 100 wars of aggression and had emerged as the victor in the Second World War . As part of the allied forces  the US had seen off Imperial Japan , Nazi Germany and fascist Italy.  The US had emerged as the boss of world imperialism . It had a huge military machine and a global empire of military bases across the world .The US was and is the bulwark of modern colonialism, international gendarme and strangler of independence and national liberation .On top of this  the DPRK  not only to had to fight against the US but also the forces of the south Korean puppets , armies from 15 satellite countries of the US and the Japanese fighting secretly in Korea wearing the uniforms of the south Korean puppet army .
The Korean people led by the great revolutionary leader and national hero Marshal KIM IL SUNG, a true military strategic genius and ever-victorious iron-willed brilliant commander fought a fierce anti- imperialist, anti- US struggle against US imperialism and the allied forces of international reaction. It was a fierce class struggle against the enemies of the people. The US fought a truly racist and genocidal war. The order of the US commanders was to shoot everything in white and most Korean civilians wore white. It was no coincidence that George Lincoln Rockwell the founder and leader of the American Nazi Party served as a lieutenant commander in the US imperialist forces during the war.
The Fatherland Liberation War was a just national liberation war as well as a fierce anti-US, anti-imperialist struggle and a class struggle against the enemies of the people .It was a sacred war for Korean reunification .At the same time was a war to defend the independence and freedom of the Korean people . Also it was a war to defend peace and security and the eastern outpost of the socialist camp.
                     How could a small country like People's Korea fight against the US and its puppets and vassals? The answer was in the powerful revolutionary leadership of Marshal KIM IL SUNG , the  Juche idea and the Songun idea as well as the heroic self-sacrificing spirit of the Korean people and the young Korean People's Army. The Korean people fought in the spirit of self-reliance and fortitude guided by the Juche .The great revolutionary leader Marshal KIM IL SUNG stated“We must solve our problems no matter who is helping us and what help we get......Victory must be won by our strength” The efforts of the Korean people that were primary in defeating the US imperialist aggressors.
  Some people like to draw attention to the internationalist assistance given to the Korean and in particular point to China and the USSR. Of course it is true that such assistance was given and not just by big countries but by all socialist countries. Moreover in the capitalist countries the working class and revolutionary movement opposed the war by holding demonstrations and strikes. In the UK  the Communist Party of Great Britain and “Daily Worker “ opposed the war , as did some Labour MPs to their credit,for example the famous Welsh MP S O Davies. Even in the US there were protests against the war. In the oppressed colonial countries the revolutionary peoples intensified their anti-imperialist struggles. In particular the revolutionary forces of Malaya and Thailand stepped up their armed struggle. However the best internationalist aid and assistance has no effect unless the revolutionary forces of a given unite and wage a powerful struggle. History knows many examples of revolutions that were given unstinting assistance but came to nothing because the internal revolutionary forces were not strong enough and the quality of leadership was lacking.
 The great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG always stressed that the outcome of war is not determined by weapons alone but the ideology of those holding the weapons.
During the Fatherland Liberation War totally new tactics based on the Juche Idea were applied. For example the Korean People’s Army developed tunnel warfare, a new concept. An article by overseas Korean writer Han Ho Suk wrote that  North Korea's expertise in digging tunnels for warfare was demonstrated during the Vietnam War. North Korea sent about 100 tunnel warfare experts to Vietnam to help dig the 250 km tunnels for the North Vietnamese and Viet Gong troops in South Vietnam. The tunnels were instrumental in the Vietnamese victor
  On the 25th June 1950 at dawn guns boomed and jets of flame shot out . The south Korean puppets intruded several kilometres deep into the territory of People' Korea. The south Korean puppet army, under the direct command of the US Military Advisory Group , had  launched an armed invasion all along the 38th parallel on a preconceived war plan. The south Korean puppets started their  aggression against the DPRK over the whole length of the 38th parallel, intruding one-two kilome­tres deep in the directions of Haeju, Kumchon and Cholwon. The south Korean puppets bragged their radio they had captured Haeju(which categorically disproves the account of US, Western and south Korean historians the  DPRK attacked first) . The destiny of the DPRK was hanging in the balance, what could it do against the onslaught of the south Korean puppets who were backed by the biggest military power in history ?  The great leader Marshal KIM IL SUNG  called meeting of the Cabinet of the DPRK and  demanded that the south Korean puppets stop their aggression at once . The south Korean puppets refused to do so . So the great leader Marshal KIM IL SUNG ,declaring that the Yankees had misjudged the Koreans, ordered the Korean People's Army and Korean Peoples Security Forces to go over to an immediate counter-offensive.
   Thus the KPA and KPSF went over to an immediate counter-offensive  pushing the south Korean puppets back .This was something unprecedented in the history of warfare! . Generally when a state is attacked or invaded by another state it takes some time to even adopt a defensive posture to resist the aggression. However thanks to the original Juche-orientated revolutionary military thought and strategy the forces of the DPRK were able to launch a decisive counter-offensive after halting the south Korean puppets in their tracks and allowing them no breathing space.
    The great leader Marshal KIM IL SUNG had accumulated precious experience during the 15 year long armed struggle against the Japanese imperialists. He developed original Juche-orientated military tactics, the like of which had never been seen before.
  On the third day of the war , 28 June, Seoul the south Korean puppet capital was liberated by the  KPA .This was disastrous for the south Korean puppets who had orgininally boasted of "having breakfast in Haeju, lunch in Pyongyang and dinner in Sinuiju" . This had not happened, instead the victorious DPRK wiped out the south Korean puppet forces and liberated south Korea,. The hated colonial reactionary ruling machines were smashed and land was distributed to the peasants free of charge. The US started to heavily bomb all of Korea and drew  into the war forces from some satellite countries. This did not stop the advance of the Juche-orientated Korean People's Army commanded by the great leader Marshal KIM IL SUNG. The KPA smashed the Yankees at Osan .Torpedo boats of the KPA Navy sunk US cruisers and destroyers.                                
  The great leader Marshal KIM IL SUNG personally commanded the Taejon liberation battle.I. The U.S. 24th division was totally destroyed in the Taejon battle on July 20, that was the 20th day after its arrival in south Korea. A  young People's Army  took prisoner Dean himself. He was the first division commander of U.S. imperialist aggression forces to be taken prisoner in the Korean War. This was  a great feat of the heroic Korean People's Army to have captured a Yankee general.
 In the first stage of the war the Korean People's Army liberated 90 per cent of the territory of south Korea and 92 of the population. A truly remarkable accomplishment that was achieved by the self-reliant revolutionary armed forces of People's Korea under the command of the great leader Marshal KIM IL SUNG .
  The US threw into the war unprecedented numbers of troops and amounts of materials.  In fact 73 million tons of war materials were used in the war .The war raged on until July 27th 1953 when the US kneeled down and signed the Armistice Agreement.
During the three-year long Fatherland Liberation War, the U.S. imperialists lost over 1,567,000 men, including more than 405,000 of their own armed forces, and an enormous amount of combat equipment and war supplies, including over 12,200 aircraft, more than 560 warships and ships, over 3,200 tanks and armoured vehicles of different types, more than 13,350 trucks and 7,690 artillery pieces of various types. The loss suffered by the US imperialists was nearly 2.3 times greater than what they had suffered in the four years of the Pacific War during World War II. Even official US statistics showed during each of the three years of the Korean War they lost double  the number of troops lost in each year of the Vietnam war.
 Former State of Secretary Marshall said that “the myth was blown away. We are not a strong country as others thought. The infamous Senator J R McCarthy admitted “we suffered a serious defeat in Korea “ . McCarthy’s remark  prompts me to think whether  Ethel and Julius Rosenberg were really executed(on the 19 of June 1953  a month before the US defeat) as scapegoats for the US defeat in the Fatherland Liberation War .As the great leader generalissimo KIM IL SUNG said “In this great struggle our people fought determinedly as one in mind under the correct leadership of the party and government and thereby withstood the harsh trials of war honourably and won a historic victory inflicting an ignominious defeat on US imperialism and its running dogs .
The US imperialists also suffered irretrievable political and moral defeats. It was a great victory for the Korean people and opened up a new era of anti-US, anti-imperialist struggle. Indeed Korea was the war before Vietnam !. The executive secretariat of the Organisation  of Solidarity with the People’s of Asia, Africa and Latin America  said on the 19th of June 1968 “ under the superb leadership of the Marshal KIM IL SUNG the People’s Army and the people of Korea who inherited the traditions of the glorious  anti-Japanese armed struggle fought heroically and defeated US Imperialism om the defence of liberty of the fatherland and the gains of the revolution, making a great contribution in the anti-imperialist national-liberation struggle  of the peoples throughout the world and the struggle for peace in Asia and the world.
This historic victory of the Korean people has shown that no force on earth can ever bring to their knees a people who fight for the independence and liberty of their country

   The victory in the Fatherland Liberation War was due to the outstanding an brilliant commanding art of the great leader Generalissimo KIM IL SUNG , a military strategic genius and ever-victorious iron-willed brilliant commander.
 





Japan Is in Dock: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, July 18 (KCNA) -- A south Korean court recently ruled that Japanese war criminal businesses must make reparation to the victims of conscript labor forced by the Japanese imperialists.

In defiance of the decision, the Japanese authorities claimed that the postwar reparation issue had been "completely and finally settled", and clamored for counter-measures. And they went the lengths of imposing restrictions on export to south Korea.

Japan's shameless moves enrage all Koreans as it went abusive and reckless, far from making an apology and reparation for the thrice-cursed crimes it committed against the Korean nation, and even took the absolutely unjust retaliatory economic measures.

What should not be overlooked is that Japan is pulling up the DPRK under an absurd excuse that "key materials for semiconductor production may find its way into the north via south Korea".

This is a cunning artifice to justify the unreasonable economic retaliation by disguising it as an "issue related to national security" and "international issue," which constitutes a revelation of the trite hostile policy towards the DPRK and an intolerable political provocation against it.

Japan has no say as it still remains in the dock of the court of history.

The Korean nation suffered great human, material, spiritual and moral damage from the long occupation of Korea by the Japanese imperialists and their brutal colonial rule over it, and its aftereffects still continue along with national division.

Notwithstanding, the Japanese reactionaries have persistently evaded the atonement for the past while benefiting from adding fuel to the aggravation of situation in the Korean peninsula and the escalation of confrontation between the north and the south of Korea.

Though an unprecedented trend of peace settles in the region, Japan is running amuck to sacrifice the interests of the Korean nation and the peace of the region for its political tactics while putting all sorts hurdles in the improvement of the DPRK-U.S. and inter-Korean relations.

In fact, Japan has cried out for "cooperation in sanctions and pressure" on someone and "solidarity", if there is anything beneficial to it, but if not, it has not scrupled to hurt anyone. Such dishonest behavior of the island country shows to the international community once again how untrustworthy Japan is.

It is quite natural that Japan is put on the periphery of the trend of regional situation over the Korean peninsula.

Japan had better atone for the past first, well aware that it is in the dock. -0-

Meeting of the Brazilian Centre for the Study of Songun Politics on the Korean Revolution and Fatherland Liberation War at Rio State University 11th of July 2019


                                       


On the 11th of July UK Dr Dermot Hudson,President of the Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK , chairman of UK KFA and the  Juche Idea Study Group of England  addressed a seminar at Rio State University organised by the Brazilian Centre for the Study of Songun Politics , on the subject of the Korean Revolution and the Korean War .
    The Brazilian Centre for the Study of Songun Politics or Centro de Estudos da Política Songun Brasilhttps://cepsongunbr.wordpress.com/ was founded in February 2017 in Rio De Janario on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the birth of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL .The preparatory work for founding the centre was started in October 2016 The centre aims to disseminate the Songun idea and promote anti-imperialist solidarity with People~s Korea , the land of Juche .
 The meeting organised by the Brazilian Centre for the Study of Songun Politics was simply amazing.
About 150 to 200 people attended the meeting ! It was incredible
Lucas Rubio head of the Brazilian Centre for Songun Politics introduced the meeting and the speakers.
The book ~History of the Korean Revolution~ was launched . Comrade Alexandre Rosendo spoke about the struggle for independence of the Korean people led by the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG and the anti-imperialist , anti-feudal democratic revolution . He also spoke about the division of Korea by US imperialism.
Dr Dermot Hudson spoke about how US imperialism and the south Korean puppets provoked the Korean war saying that ~I think it is relevant to start with pointing out that Korea is one country not two . Before 1945 there was no north or south Korea. Korea from ancient times was one nation and one people. In 1945 an American colonel, one Dean Rusk , who later became a leading figure in US politics, draw a line with a ruler and a pencil across a map of Korea , at the 38th parallel , disregarding natural boundaries such as rivers and counties and provinces . The US troops invaded south Korea on the 8th of September 1945 and created a puppet state. Thus Korea a peaceful, united and homogenous nation was divided by the actions of the Yankee imperialists. Of course it is impossible to invade your own country .However the issue of who provoked the Korean War , is a key issue because it is still used to demonise the DPRK and was invoked as a pretext for the US launching one of the most  barbarous war ever in history . A war in which the US killed 4.2 million Korean people.
The US imperialists, the ringleader of the world imperialism and international reactionaries, provoked a war in Korea on the 25th of June 1950 by instigating their south Korean puppets to attack the young Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. The US imperialists were hungry for profits and conquest. The US imperialists fought an unjust aggressive war against the Korean people. The US imperialists launched a war of conquest against the DPRK , a war to destroy the Juche-based people's democratic system in the DPRK as well to destroy socialism in Asia and the world. 
 The USA had long coveted Korea. In the 19th century they  sent various expeditions to Korea . In 1866 the US “General Sherman” sailed up the Taedong river into Pyongyang but it was destroyed due to the struggle of the local people led by Kim Ung U (great grandfather of President Kim Il Sung) . They sent other scouts into Korea and committed plunder. 
The US concluded the so called “Korea US  Treaty “ with the Korean feudal government  in 1882. The US seized the gold mines in Korea . Although in the early 20th century Korea became a Japanese colony, the Yanks held the gold mining concessions in Korea The US was actually opposed to Korean independence. During the negotiations at Teheran, Yalta and Potsdam between the 3 big powers the US proposed that Korea should be put under “Trusteeship” for 40 years. Trusteeship would essentially be just another form of colonialism. 
. After Korea was liberated in 1945 US troops occupied south Korea on the 8th of September nearly 3 weeks after Japan had been defeated on  August 15 . At first they ruled through a direct military administration and then through  the puppet regime of Syngham Rhee . Rhee was a corrupt fascist despot hated by the south Korean people .Rhee was discredited as he had embezzled funds from the Korean independence movement in the 1920s. Rhee was fanatically anti-communist. One American writer said of Syngham Rhee ““He is two centuries before fascism—a true Bourbon. “
~.
Dr Hudson also explained how the Korean people led by great generalissimo KIM IL SUNG won victory in the world by Juche-based ,self-reliant efforts pointing out that ~The great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG always stressed that the outcome of war is not determined by weapons alone but the ideology of those holding the weapons.
During the Fatherland Liberation War totally new tactics based on the Juche Idea were applied. For example the Korean People’s Army developed tunnel warfare, a new concept. An article by overseas Korean writer Han Ho Suk wrote that “North Korea's expertise in digging tunnels for warfare was demonstrated during the Vietnam War. North Korea sent about 100 tunnel warfare experts to Vietnam to help dig the 250 km tunnels for the North Vietnamese and Viet Gong troops in South Vietnam. The tunnels were instrumental in the Vietnamese victory”....During the three-year long Fatherland Liberation War, the U.S. imperialists lost over 1,567,000 men, including more than 405,000 of their own armed forces, and an enormous amount of combat equipment and war supplies, including over 12,200 aircraft, more than 560 warships and ships, over 3,200 tanks and armoured vehicles of different types, more than 13,350 trucks and 7,690 artillery pieces of various types. The loss suffered by the US imperialists was nearly 2.3 times greater than what they had suffered in the four years of the Pacific War during World War II. Even official US statistics showed during each of the three years of the Korean War they lost double  the number of troops lost in each year of the Vietnam war.
 Former State of Secretary Marshall said that “the myth was blown away. We are not a strong country as others thought. The infamous Senator J R McCarthy admitted “we suffered a serious defeat in Korea “ . McCarthy’s remark  prompts me to think whether  Ethel and Julius Rosenberg were really executed(on the 19 of June 1953  a month before the US defeat) as scapegoats for the US defeat in the Fatherland Liberation War .As the great leader generalissimo KIM IL SUNG said “In this great struggle our people fought determinedly as one in mind under the correct leadership of the party and government and thereby withstood the harsh trials of war honourably and won a historic victory inflicting an ignominious defeat on US imperialism and its running dogs .
The US imperialists also suffered irretrievable political and moral defeats. It was a great victory for the Korean people and opened up a new era of anti-US, anti-imperialist struggle. Indeed Korea was the war before Vietnam~

Dr Hudson was awarded a plaque of commendation by the Brazilian Centre for the Study of Songun Politics and KFA Brazil.

The  Association for the Study of Songun Politics , Juche Idea Study Group of England and UK Korean Friendship is very grateful to the Brazilian Centre for the Study of Songun Politics for extending the invitation to Dr Hudson and organising such an excellent meeting.

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 the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula (BSCPRKP) issued the following joint statement in support of the press statement made by a spokesperson of the DPRK Foreign Ministry on the 16th of July:
 Despite relaxation of tensions on the Korean peninsula  including the unpecedented meeting of supreme leader Marshal KIM JONG UN with Trump at Panmunjom on the 30th of June , the US and south Korea plan to stage "Alliance 19-2"military exercises in August .These  exercises are a grave provocation and challenge to the DPRK as they are basically a rehearsal to invade the DPRK and effect regime change.
  The planned exercises are a violation of the June 12th 2018 DPRK-US joint statement , they go against both the spirit and letter of the statement . Moreover the staging of the exerises show that Trump is reneging on the promises he made to respected Marshal KIM JONG UN during his first and third meetings with the the DPRK supreme leader.
  The DPRK has sincerely implemented its side of the joint statement by suspending nuclear and ICBM tests and also by returning the remains of US soldiers who died in the Fatherand Liberation War .However the US has yet to honour its committments to the DPRK and worse still is indulging in all sorts of hostile anti DPRK actions .
   The DPRK Foreign Ministry justly warns that ~With the U.S. unilaterally reneging on its commitments, we are gradually losing our justifications to follow through on the commitments we made with the U.S. as well~. It isthe independent right of the DPRK to respond to the bad faith and provocations of the US by restarting  ICBM and nuclear tests .If the situation on the Korean peninsula returns to a state of extreme tension , the US will have no one to blame but themselves .
We call for Alliance 19-2"to be cancelled at once . We support the will of the DPRK to take the nessecary steps of resuming nuclear and ICBM tests should the US fail to honour its committments and promises that have been made.
 US OUT OF KOREA !
LONG LIVE JUCHE KOREA !

Seminário "Guerra da Coreia: revisitando a guerra esquecida"

Eternal Father of Nation

Eternal Father of Nation

This is July in which the public irresistible reverence for President Kim Il Sung is fervent. 
Twenty-five years have elapsed since President Kim Il Sung passed away, however, he is alive in the minds of the Korean nation. 
He is the peerless patriot and great man unparalleled in history who devoted his life just for the sake of his nation.
The country’s multi-millennial history knows many famous persons but no one except President Kim Il Sung admired and revered by all people century after century.
The Korean people have been blessed with illustrious leaders generation after generation, a pro-reunification figure in Seoul said with emotion.
A student living in Busan said:
The sun is eternal. It is symbolic of immortality.
President Kim Il Sung is a great man just like the sun.
He is eternal in terms of ideology, exploits and personality.
Human history has seen many famous persons but none of them is on a par with him in the light of idea, political ability, personality, appearance and achievements. 
He is the greatest man and sage than all prominent persons recorded in world history, all combined. 
President Kim Il Sung dedicated his all to the realization of the country’s reunification. He set forth most reasonable strategy for reunification including the three principles of national reunification, the 10-point program for the great unity of the whole nation and the proposal for founding the Democratic Federal Republic of Koryo. He arouses the Korean nation to achieve the national reunification and put his last signature to the historic document relating to reunification until his last breath.
Therefore, the Korean nation always remembers him and reveres him as the eternal father of the nation.
 A south Korean politician said:
Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un is leading the Korean nation’s movement for national reunification true to noble intention of PresidentKim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il.
Historic inter-Korean declarations mirror the Supreme Leader’s inflexible will to accomplish the national reunification desired by the preceding leaders.
Led by him, the undying achievements made by the preceding leaders in realizing the national reunification will shine for all ages. He is determined to make an all-out effort to write a fresh history of independent reunification, peace and prosperity.  

Spokesperson for DPRK Foreign Ministry on DPRK-U.S. Working-level Talks

Pyongyang, July 16 (KCNA) -- A spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA on July 16, with regard to the DPRK-U.S. working-level talks.

At present, there are widespread public opinions across the world concerning an opening of the DPRK-U.S. working-level talks.

The United States is going to conduct a joint military exercise "Alliance 19-2" with south Korea in contravention of the commitments made at the highest level at a time when the working-level talks between the DPRK and the U.S. are on the agenda, which has been made possible by the DPRK-U.S. summit meeting in Panmunjom.

If the military exercise really goes ahead, it would affect the DPRK-U.S. working-level talks.

We will formulate our decision on the opening of the DPRK-U.S. working-level talks, while keeping watch over the U.S. move hereafter. -0-

Japan Can Not Flee from Atonement for Past: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, July 16 (KCNA) -- Days ago, civic organizations in Saitama Prefecture held a rally on the occasion of the 82nd anniversary of "the July 7 incident" provoked by the Japanese imperialists.

At the rally, the participants denounced the crimes committed by the Japanese imperialists in the past and demanded that the present Japanese government have correct perceptions of the history of aggression and honestly reflect on it.

It shows that time is not a medicine for people's curse and hatred against the brutal aggression by militaristic Japan.

The thrice-cursed crimes Japan committed in the last century were unprecedented in terms of brutality, atrocity and unlawfulness.

On July 7, 1937, Japan engineered the "Lugou Bridge incident" to provoke a general war against China. It plunged China into sea of blood and committed all sorts of atrocious crimes including slaughter, plunder and arson for nearly 3 000 days.

Earlier, in 1905 the Japanese imperialists illegally occupied Korea and enforced brutal colonial rule in a bid to turn the Korean Peninsula into a springboard to invading the continent.

They abducted and forcibly drafted 200 000 Korean women and over 8.4 millions of young and middle-aged Koreans to reduce them into sexual slaves, bullet-shields and talking labor tools, and massacred more than one millions of innocent Korean people. Such heinous crimes committed by Japan still evoke towering anger of the Korean nation.

So, Japan should make thorough apology and reparation for inflicting untold misfortune and pain upon the Korean people and other peoples of Asian countries.

However, the behavior of the island country is too shameless.

While justifying the war of aggression, Japan still denies the thrice-cursed crimes it committed against humanity.

Far from drawing a lesson from the filthy and disgraceful history, it is keen on revision of laws and arms buildup for reinvasion.

In fact, Japan has already turned itself into a war-capable state and is waiting for a chance of reinvasion.

But, Abe group's moves sharpen the vigilance of the international community over Japan and harden the will to settle accounts with Japan.

Mankind will never pardon those posing grave threat to global peace and security and trying to bring miserable disaster to the region again, and will force them to dearly pay for it.

Japan can never flee from the atonement for the past. -0-

Traitors Have No Room for Existence: KCNA Commentary


Pyongyang, July 16 (KCNA) -- The DPRK-U.S. summit meeting and talks held with surprise at Panmunjom, the symbol of hostility and confrontation, served as an occasion to build unprecedented trust between the DPRK and the U.S., which made all the Koreans and the whole world brim with excitement and emotion.

But the south Korean conservatives, displeased with the world-stirring event, are getting impatient to downplay its significance.

The conservative groups including the "Liberal Korea Party" and the "Parun Mirae Party" slander the recent DPRK-U.S. summit meeting, letting loose such invectives as "it is merely for show" and "there is no change in reality and essence despite the U.S.-north Korea summit meeting".

Their slander is no more than a death cry of traitors who are marginalized by the trend of peace with no room left for their existence for having staked their fate on confrontation, hostility, tension and war.

Peace and security of the Korean peninsula are vital to the Korean nation and global peace and security.

The recent DPRK-U.S. summit meeting and talks, held at Panmunjom representing the long history of distrust, misunderstanding, conflict and antagonism, heralded a new history of reconciliation and peace all over the world.

The international community, therefore, hails and supports the Panmunjom DPRK-U.S. summit meeting as an epoch-making event that brought about a radical turn in achieving peace and prosperity of the Korean peninsula, the region and the rest of the world.

Nevertheless, the conservative traitors dare challenge all the Koreans and the world.

They are making desperate efforts to check the trend of national reconciliation and unity and peace on the Korean peninsula, obsessed with greed for power and indifferent to the destiny and future of the fellow countrymen, while slandering the historic inter-Korean declarations and crying out for total repeal of the north-south agreement in military field.

The total denial of the stirring event recognized by the world people goes to prove that "peace" much touted by the conservatives is no less confrontation and war.

They are, indeed, the shame on the Korean nation as they still run mad to find a way out in anachronistic dependence on outsiders and confrontation with the fellow countrymen, unaware of the trend of the times.

The LKP, a dreg of history, and other conservatives can never block the trend of the times towards peace, prosperity and reunification whatever their efforts.

Sure to come is the day when the traitors plotting permanent national division and living upon confrontation with fellow countrymen will meet ruin. -0-
