Repatriation of unconverted long-term prisoners urged

Pyongyang, November 26 (KCNA) — The Peruvian National Association for the Study of Kimjongilism, the Madagascar-DPRK Friendship and Solidarity Committee and chairman of the People’s Front of Workers, Peasants and Students of Peru Genaro Ledesma Izquieta issued statements demanding the repatriation of unconverted long-term prisoners in South Korea.


The statements said that the South Korean authorities’ opposition to the repatriation of the former POWs is not only a violation of the Korean Armistice Agreement but also an infringement upon man’s rights to choose his residence at his will.

They urged the South Korean authorities to take an immediate measure to send the unconverted long-term prisoners standing at the crossroads of life and death back to their hometowns where their kinsmen are waiting for them.

They expressed full support and firm solidarity with all the initiatives and efforts of the DPRK to promote the unity between the north and the south and realize the immediate repatriation of unconverted long-term prisoners to the north by solving the criminal and inhumanitarian issue in South Korea.
