Pyongyang, November 18 (KCNA) — The central committee of the Democratic Front for the Reunification of the Fatherland and the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland on Nov. 17 issued an appeal to the 70 million fellow countrymen at home and abroad in order to push ahead with the building of the monument to three-point charter for national reunification as a pro-reunification patriotic movement.
The appeal said:
The pro-reunification patriotic forces in the north, south and abroad decided on August 15 this year to build the monument in Pyongyang, the fountainhead of the three-point charter for national reunification.
The construction of the monument now progressing apace is to be finished before August 15 next year, the first year of the 2000s, on which the 55th anniversary of Korea’s liberation from the Japanese colonial rule falls.
The three-point charter for national reunification consists of the three principles of national reunification–independence, peaceful reunification and great national unity–, the ten-point program of the great unity of the whole nation for the reunification of the country and the proposal on founding the Democratic Confederal Republic of Koryo.
The building of the monument to the three-point charter is a noble work common to the nation to exalt for all ages the immortal exploits performed by the President Kim Il Sung for the country and the nation. And it is a proud patriotic work to demonstrate at home and abroad the iron will and conviction of the whole nation to build a reunified country under the banner of the three-point charter.
The appeal called for successfully and wonderfully building the monument and powerfully demonstrating the Korean nation’s unshakable will for reunification to the whole world.
Underscoring the necessity to pool patriotic sincerity of the whole nation in the construction of the monument, it called upon all the Koreans to make a tangible contribution to the construction, those with strength devoting strength, those with money donating money and those with knowledge dedicating knowledge.
All the reunification movement organizations and personages in the north, south and abroad should make the forthcoming year 2000 a year of historic turn for national reunification, upholding the three-point charter for national reunification as the great reunification program common to the nation.
