Pyongyang, November 18 (KCNA) — Rodong Sinmun today in a signed article describes the campaign against the building of Tangun’s statues in South Korea as a treacherous act of negating the nation’s ancestral father.
The article goes on:
Some dishonest elements in South Korea are negating the existence of Tangun. This is an unpardonable treachery of negating national history, tradition and homogeneity vital to great national unity and, in essence, little different from the past anti-Tangun obliteration moves of the Japanese aggressors.
In South Korea some dishonest Christians are these days zealously opposing the building of Tangun’s statues, saying that the existence of Tangun has not yet been identified.
This is connived at and backed by the authorities. This is a revival of the policy of obliterating Tangun once pursued by the Japanese.
Insulting Tangun is precisely a treacherous act of serving the purpose of the aggressive policy of the U.S. and the Japanese reactionaries keen on obliterating the history, tradition and spirit of the Korean nation and, at the same time, an act of joining the imperialists in their moves to perpetuate the national division and thus exterminate the Korean nation.
