Pyongyang, September 21 (KCNA) — Ideas and policies on reunification laid down by the President Kim Il Sung in his policy speech of May 24, 1990 are an immortal banner and platform for reunification which brightly indicates the road ahead of the reunification movement of the Korean nation, says Rodong Sinmun in a signed article today.
The work says that the entire nation should push ahead with the struggle for country’s reunification by founding a Democratic Confederal Republic of Koryo under the uplifted banner of independence, peaceful reunification and great national unity.
Indicated in the work is the five-point policy of national reunification the keynote of which is that the tension on the Korean peninsula must be eased and a peaceful climate for the country’s reunification be created, the barrier of division must be removed and free travel and a full-scale open-door policy effected between the north and the south, the north and the south must develop their foreign relations on the principle of creating an international climate favourable for the independent and peaceful reunification of the country, the dialogue for reunification must be developed and that a nationwide united front for the country’s reunification must be formed.
The author of the article says:
The three principles of national reunification — independence, peaceful reunification and great national unity — are a common reunification program of the nation which the north and the south confirmed through the July 4 Joint Statement and made public at home and abroad.
Accordingly, the country must be reunified only on these principles no matter how the situation on the Korean peninsula may change in the future.
The proposal for founding the Democratic Confederal Republic of Koryo is the most reasonable and realistic reunification blueprint which makes it possible to accomplish the cause of country’s reunification by overcoming difficulties and obstacles lying in the way of reunification.
The cause of national reunification can be successfully accomplished without any deviation only when the reunification movement is conducted true to the instructions of the President on achieving the reunification on the three principles of reunification and in accordance with the proposal for founding the Democratic Confederal Republic of Koryo.
