S. Korean authorities’ “sunshine policy” flayed

Pyongyang, November 6 (KCNA) — The secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland released an article disclosing the injustice and anti-national nature of the “sunshine policy” desperately pursued by the South Korean chief executive.


The issue of Korean reunification should find a solution that meets the interests of the nation, the article says, and goes on:

The “sunshine policy” peddled by the South Korean chief executive is not a creative one towards the reunification of the country but a product of the policy of blindly toeing others and copying their things.

Not content with copying foreign things, he picked the word “sunshine” from the western collection of fables to dream up his “policy toward the north” intended to undress others.

This is a political cartoon provoking people’s laughter.

The inter-Korean relations are directly linked with the issue of the country’s reunification. It is an anti-national, anti-reunification behaviour for him to have regarded this reunification issue related to the nation’s destiny as a matter of one party undressing the other party.

The issue of Korea’s reunification is not a question of one side of the north and the south conquering or undressing the other side.

Such “sunshine policy” will only result in a fratricidal war or in the disgraceful permanent division.

The “sunshine” logic is, in essence, a logic of confrontation and the outdated logic of the Cold War.

The South Korean chief executive is now putting up the signboard of “sunshine” but his confrontation posture to strip others naked is little different from the anti-communist policy of his predecessors.

He, obsessed with the mode of thinking in the Cold War, is seeking confrontation through the “sunshine policy”, regarding the reunification question as one on which victory or defeat of his system hinges. This is an intolerable anti-reunification criminal act.

Dismissing the South Korean chief executive’s nonsense that this policy is “not intended to undress the north” as hypocrisy, the article continues:

To tell the truth, it is the South Korean authorities who should be undressed.

We, who are wearing clothes that represent Juche, independence and Korea, do not need to take them off nor have anything to take off.

But the South Korean authorities have U.S.-made overcoat and Japan-made dress offered by their U.S. and Japanese masters.

These are, no doubt, clothes for flunkeyists and traitors which are not suited to Koreans.

The South Korean authorities are well advised to wear clothes that represent independence, great unity and reunification, the national dresses, though belatedly.

It was in this sense that we sincerely proposed to the South Korean authorities to take off foreign clothes and have national dresses at a joint meeting of the DPRK government, political parties and organizations early this year.

The South Korean chief executive should not go in clothes for flunkeyists and traitors, clothes for confrontation, but make a bold decision to accept the three priorities set forth by the DPRK at the joint meeting.
