Pyongyang, January 21 (KCNA) — The fixed principles and way of national reunification consistently maintained by the Korean people are the three charters — three principles of national reunification, the proposal for founding the Democratic Confederal Republic of Koryo and the “10-Point Programme of the Great Unity of the Whole Nation for the Reunification of the Country”.
President Kim Il Sung put forward the three charters.
He met with the south side delegates to the high-level political talks between the north and south of Korea on May 3, Juche 61 (1972) and clarified the three principles of national reunification the keynote of which is independence, peaceful reunification and great national unity.
The principles mean to reunify the country independently free from outside interference without recourse to the force of arms by promoting great national unity transcending the differences in ideology, ideal and social system.
The principles were declared at home and abroad through the historical July 4 North-South Joint Statement as the reunification programme common to the nation.
The proposal for founding the DCRK was advanced by the President in his report at 6 Congress of the Worker’s Party of Korea which was held on October, Juche 69 (1980).
“10-Point Programme of the Great Unity of the Whole Nation for the Reunification of the Country was advanced by the President on April, Juche 82 (1993).
