Pyongyang, November 20 (KCNA) — The central committee of the Democratic Front for the Reunification of the Fatherland sent a letter to pro-reunification movement organisations in South Korea and abroad on November 20.
In the letter it proposed to form a joint fact-finding team of people in the north, south and abroad and conduct an active investigation into the truth behind the criminal killings committed by the U.S. aggression forces in the north and south of Korea during the last Korean War.
The letter said:
Even in wartime killings of peaceable civilians, not servicepersons, are strictly banned by the international law. To strictly square accounts with the U.S. for their murderous crimes is a matter of weighty importance in defending the dignity of the Korean nation and keeping outsiders from inflicting disasters upon the nation again.
It underscored the need to lay bare massacres by GIs in the North Korea as well as in South Korea during the last Korean War and to make yankees pay for their atrocities one thousand times.
It went on:
The U.S. and the South Korean authorities claim that they engage themselves in what they call “joint investigation” into the killings in Rogun-ri. That is a deceptive trick to put down the wrath and anti-American feelings of the South Korean people.
It is the height of impudence that the criminals “investigate” their crimes. It is not hard to see what result their “investigation” will bring about.
Their loudmouthed “investigation” is designed to while away the time playing tricks and cover up their crimes and flee from the responsibility for them at any cost. So, there is nothing to be expected of it.
Worse still, the present authorities of South Korea who place the interests of the U.S. above the interests and dignity of the nation are zealous ly defending the excesses committed by uncle Sam. The reality shows that only through impartial and active efforts of the fact-finding team is possible to fully expose the historic crimes of the U.S. Troops.
We express hope that all the fellow countrymen and pro-reunification movement organisations in the north, south and overseas which value the dignity and sovereignty of the nation will show an affirmative response to the constructive proposal of the DPRK for the formation of the joint fact-finding team.
