Pyongyang, September 27 (KCNA) — The spokesman for the National Democratic Front of South Korea (NDFSK) released a statement on September 22 denouncing the South Korean authorities for deciding to call the Japanese king “emperor,” the Seoul-based radio Voice of National Salvation said.
The “emperor” is a symbol of the Japanese imperialists’ aggression and war crimes as well as pronoun of the devil who inflicted the incurable wounds of misfortune and pains upon the Korean people, the statement says, and continues:
Japan’s moves for staging a comeback are getting all the more pronounced with each passing day and the “emperor” serves as a mental pillar of the resurgent militarism. A decision to call the Japanese king “emperor” in the context is one more humiliating act vis-a-vis Japan. It is as good as a declaration that the South Korean authorities will be a guide for reinvasion by Japanese militarism.
The South Korean authorities decided to call the Japanese King “emperor”, the king who is the most villainous boss of Japan’s samurais who hurt the pride of the Korean nation refusing to make an apology, compensation and reparation for the damage the Japanese imperialists imposed upon the Korean people during their colonial rule.
The decision cannot be pardoned at all because it is an unbearable insult to the martyrs who laid down their lives for the liberation of the country and to the millions of people who were killed by Japanese after conscription and labor draft as well as the “comfort women for the army.”
