Pyongyang, August 21 (KCNA) — The secretariat of the committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland published an open questionnaire on August 20 laying bare the deceptive and contradictory nature of the “proposal to the north” made by the present South Korean ruler.
In the “proposal,” he prattled that he would open up a “second era of national building” and that he would also make a new “epoch” in the relations between the north and the south.
Asking him how he can talk about the “spirit of the north-south agreement” which reaffirmed the three principles of national reunification while entreating the United States to keep its troops in South Korea for an indefinite period, the questionnaire said:
The basic spirit of the north-south agreement reaffirms the three principles of national reunification the keynote of which is national independence.
After taking office, he repeatedly said that the “U.S. troops must be stationed in South Korea not only for the present but also after the country is reunified.”
Who wants a reunified country which is subjugated to others?
As long as the “National Security Law” (NSL) and the “Agency for National Security Planning” (ANSP) exist, it is impossible to achieve reconciliation between the north and the south.
In South Korea, however, the “NSL” is still in force and the “ANSP” has been beefed up.
With such legal and institutional confrontation devices left intact, how can the idea of inter-Korean confrontation, which has lasted 50 years, be terminated?
“Reciprocity” and “sunshine politics” clamoured about by him are nothing but a smokescreen to pull the wool over eyes of the northerners. Accordingly, genuine “cooperation and exchange” between the north and the south cannot be realised.
By “sunshine politics”, he means that, through “cooperation and exchange”, he will induce the north to “reforms” and “opening.” this is a new confrontation doctrine negating the different ideologies and systems which exist in the north and the south.
Has he the face to talk about “peace” and “removal of war danger” while continuing provocative arms buildup and joint military exercises with outside forces in order to invade the north?
The “Ulji Focus Lens” joint military exercises, involving 70,000-strong armed forces and latest military hardware, began in South Korea two days after he cried for “peace” and “removal of war danger.”
Moreover, the present South Korean authorities brutally cracked down upon the struggle of students and people for national reconciliation, unity and reunification.
This reminds people of the anti-reunification separatist moves of the preceding fascist dictators.
If the South Korean ruler is truly willing to work for reconciliation, unity and peaceful reunification, he must stop trying to befool the nation with deceptive utterances.
