Pyongyang, January 27 (KCNA) — The recently held sixth presidium meeting of the National Alliance for the Country’s Reunification (Pomminryon) set this as a “year of independence and great unity of the nation.” and it discussed Pomminryon’s action program, tasks and ways for making a radical turn in the struggle for achieving the independent and peaceful reunification of the country with concerted efforts of Koreans and their pro-reunification organizations in the north, south and overseas. It is a very timely and significant step.
Rodong Sinmun says this in a commentary today.
The reunification of the country is the whole nation’s cause which can be accomplished only by the nation’s united efforts, the newspaper says, and continues:
National independence is the life and soul of the nation and the basic principle to be adhered to in solving the reunification issue in conformity with the will and demand of the nation. And the great unity of the nation definitely guarantees strong forces of the nation for reunification and the reunification of the country in an independent way.
If all the fellow countrymen in the north, south and overseas strive hard, on the basis of national independence and great unity, to implement the three principles of national reunification, the Ten-Point Programme of the Great Unity of the Whole Nation and the confederation formula in line with the resolution of the presidium meeting, a radical turn will surely be made in the efforts for the independent and peaceful reunification of the country.
Adopted at the meeting was a special resolution calling for the elimination of South Korea’s “National Security Law” and “Agency for National Security Planning”, which are something like cancer in the way of reunification. It is also an important step aimed at removing confrontation between the north and the south, promoting national reconciliation and unity and making a fresh progress in the efforts for national reunification.
We believe that Pomminryon will, this year, too, fully discharge its obligation and role to develop the pro-reunification movement into a nationwide struggle invigorated by the Koreans in the north, south and overseas under the banner of national independence and great unity.
