Tanzanian President on Relations with DPRK

Pyongyang, May 21 (KCNA) — Tanzania sets store by its long-standing friendly and cooperative relations with the DPRK and will make sustained efforts to boost them.

Benjamin William Mkapa, president of the United Republic of Tanzania, said this when receiving credentials from DPRK Ambassador to Tanzania Pak Kun Gwang on May 12.

Recalling that the friendly and cooperative relations between the two countries were provided by President Kim Il Sung and former Tanzanian President Nyerere, he extended thanks to the DPRK for rendering considerable assistance and cooperation to Tanzania in its efforts to consolidate national independence including economic development in the past.

Noting that the federal formula provides an excellent way for reunification as it reflects the will of the Korean people, he added the inter-Korean summit meeting, the adoption of the June 15 joint declaration and the inter-Korean exchange are inspiring events in the reunification process.

Nuclear weapons should not be a specified country’s monopoly, he noted.
