Pyongyang, June 25 (KCNA) — South Korean youth and student organizations on June 20 reportedly denounced Japan for evading sincere apology for and reflection on its past crimes and zealously toeing the U.S. hostile policy towards the north.
The Solidarity of Youth and Students for Implementing the June 15 South-North Joint Declaration in a statement accused the Japanese chief executive of dodging clarifying the will to reflect on the history of Japan at the “talks” with his south Korean counterpart. It termed this another deceptive trick to cover up Japan’s undisguised ambition for the revival of militarism and deceive the Korean people.
The Korean people will no longer remain a passive onlooker to the reckless behavior of Japan, the statement warned, demanding Japan lend an ear to the just voices of the Korean people urging it to redress its past crimes, apologize for them and stop going reckless.
The south Korean Students Federation for the 21st Century in a statement strongly condemned the Japanese chief executive for his reckless remarks intended to continue visiting the Yasukuni Shrine, far from making any apology for having seriously hurt the self-respect of the Korean nation with a string of balderdash about Tok Islet and through the moves to distort the history and taking any measure against their repetition.
What is more serious is that Japan is working hard to revise even the “pacifist constitution” without discarding its aggressive nature, the statement pointed out. It is quite ridiculous for such country to make a bid for permanent membership of the UNSC.
The Society of Youths Loving Reunification in a statement denounced Japan for acting a servant of the U.S., far from honestly apologizing for and reflecting on its past crimes. It called upon the youth and students to take the lead in the struggle to smash the moves of the U.S. and Japan to violate the sovereignty of the country by the concerted efforts of the Koreans.
