Pyongyang, January 18 (KCNA) — The Nepali Congress, the Nepal Communist Party (United Marxism-Leninism), the Nepal Worker-Peasant Party and the Nepal Journalist Association and other political parties and organisations of Nepal made public a joint statement on Jan. 10 demanding the demolition of the concrete wall built in the area south of the Military Demarcation Line of Korea.
The statement said that barriers symbolic of east-west confrontation were pulled down and detente, reconciliation and cooperation have become a new trend after the end of the Cold War but the concrete wall, a symbol of national division and confrontation, is still existing in the area south of the Military Demarcation Line of the Korean peninsula.
If the concrete wall is demolished, any physical barrier will not exist between the north and south of the Korean peninsula and a favourable phase for the independent and peaceful reunification of korea will be opened, it said.
It strongly urged the United States and the South Korean authorities to promptly pull down the barrier of division, which does not meet the aspirations of the Korean people for the reunification of the country and the trend of the times.
