Pyongyang, April 7 (KCNA) — The South Headquarters of the National Alliance for the Country’s Reunification (Pomminryon) reportedly issued a statement on March 31 strongly denouncing the Japanese government’s moves to revive militarism.
Referring to the fact that the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan issued instructions to describe Tok Islet as part of Japan’s territory in the high school textbooks to be used from the next year and whitewash its past crimes including the issue of the “comfort women” for the imperial Japanese Army, the statement said: This is a criminal move to conceal and distort all sorts of base and shameless acts Japan committed in the past.
The statement drew attention to the fact that under the protection of the U.S. Japan is taking the dangerous road of emerging a military power, styling itself the so-called “moving aircraft carrier” and a shock force in carrying out the U.S. strategy to dominate Northeast Asia and throwing away its pacifist constitution.
It demanded that the Japanese government retract at once the wrong description of Tok Islet, stop its moves to turn Japan into a military power, admit all its past crimes and make an official apology and compensation for them.
