Pyongyang, November 20 (KCNA) — The North, South and Overseas Headquarters of the Pan-national Alliance for Korea’s Reunification (Pomminryon) issued a joint statement on Nov. 20 on the 26th anniversary of its formation.
The formation of Pomminryon was a great event of epochal significance in strengthening the driving force for national reunification and developing the reunification movement into a nationwide movement, the statement said.
It noted that the formation of Pomminryon made it possible to build a mother body of great national unity capable of rallying the patriotic forces at home and abroad as one and develop the movement for national reunification into an organized one and nationwide one.
The aspiration and patriotism of the fellow countrymen to defend the independent dignity of the nation and usher in the new era of reconciliation, unity, peace and reunification are growing stronger, it said, and went on:
1. Pomminryon will hold higher the three principles of national reunification and the north-south joint declarations as the lifeline of the reunification movement.
The three principles of national reunification and the north-south declarations reflect the general will of the nation and serve as the great reunification programmes common to the nation and milestones of reunification whose validity and vitality have been clearly proved in practice.
If the agreements common to the nation which were made by the north and the south and proclaimed before the world are nullified because of the change of situation and regime change, the Korean nation can never achieve the peaceful reunification of the country.
2. Pomminryon will resolutely check the reckless moves of the anti-reunification forces at home and abroad for war and confrontation.
Peace and security are the vital issues related to the destiny of the Korean nation and an essential prerequisite to national reunification.
It is the unanimous assertion and unbreakable will of all the members of the nation that they can never allow the cradle of life of the fellow countrymen to be reduced to a theatre of a nuclear war due to the moves of foreign forces and their vassal forces for war and confrontation and the Korean nation to fall victim to them.
3. Pomminryon will surely succeed in opening the nationwide great gathering for reunification and take the lead in opening a new phase of peace of the country and its independent reunification.
It is the unanimous wishes of all the fellow countrymen to hold the nationwide great gathering for reunification with all the political parties, organizations and individuals in the north, the south and abroad involved to defuse the present danger of war as required by the general will of the nation and usher in the new era of national reunification, peace and prosperity.
We will surely succeed in opening the nationwide great gathering for reunification as Pomminryon has held high the banner of national independence and great national unity and struggled to achieve them.
As an immediate task the South Headquarters of Pomminryon will conduct positive activities to form as early as possible a preparatory committee grouping people of all social standings from the south side as the preparatory committees were formed for the nationwide great gathering for reunification in the north and overseas.
The statement called upon all political parties, organizations and figures at home and abroad aspiring after the improved inter-Korean relations and national reunification to turn out as one in the drive for successfully opening the nationwide great gathering for reunification.
