S. Korean Authorities Urged to Remain True to June 15 Joint Declaration

Pyongyang, August 28 (KCNA) — The Swiss Committee for Supporting Korea’s Reunification sent a letter to the south Korean chief executive on Aug. 19 in protest against the actions taken by south Korean authorities to disallow the Pyongyang visit of a non-governmental delegation to participate in the functions commemorating the 10th death anniversary of President Kim Il Sung and the participation of representatives of the South Headquarters of the National Alliance for the Country’s Reunification and the National Alliance of Youth and Students for the Country’s Reunification and the south Korean Federation of University Student Councils in the August 15 meeting for national reunification.

The letter branded the above-said actions as acts quite contrary to the spirit of the north-south joint declaration as they are crimes against the nation and reunification.

It strongly demanded the south Korean authorities halt cracking down upon the people’s patriotic movement for reunification and permit contacts and visits to the north, something commonplace between compatriots.

The letter demanded the south Korean authorities abolish the fascist “Security Law” which bans any contact with northerners and considers it as a crime and release all the arrested pro-reunification personages. It also urged them to implement the joint declaration and act in its spirit.
