Pyongyang, June 19 (KCNA) — The nation’s movement for reunification has been put on a higher stage by the June 15 grand festival for national reunification which gave confidence and courage to the 70 million fellow countrymen in their efforts to thoroughly implement the North-South Joint Declaration and dealt a telling blow to the foreign aggressors who are working hard to split and alienate the Korean nation. Minju Joson says this in a signed commentary today.
The Korean nation is faced with an important task to consolidate the achievements of the June 15 grand festival, the commentary says, and goes on:
In order to fulfill the task the “declaration of national reunification” adopted at the meeting for national reunification marking the 5th anniversary of the publication of the June 15 joint declaration should be carried through.
The interests common to the nation should be placed first, joint steps promoted, solidarity strengthened and multi-lateral cooperation intensified between authorities and between non-governmental organizations.
The struggle for peace against war should be further strengthened to remove the danger of nuclear war and build up a ground for a peaceable life with the concerted efforts of the whole nation.
The June 15 Joint Committee that sponsored the grand festival is the parent body of great national unity.
The commentary calls for developing the joint committee into the most extensive and powerful organization for the patriotic movement for reunification.
The 70 million fellow countrymen should open a new phase of national reunification by stepping up the great march of the nation for independence, peace and reunification this year marking the fifth anniversary of the publication of the June 15 joint declaration, conscious of being the masters who open a new era of national reunification, it concludes.
