Pyongyang, May 22 (KCNA) — Han Ho Sok, director of the Reunification Institute in the U.S., gave a lecture on the subject “DPRK-U.S. nuclear standoff goes to end and the day of national reunification is approaching” in Tokyo of Japan on May 19 to mark the 45th anniversary of the July 4 joint statement and the 10th anniversary of the October 4 declaration.
Attending it were Korean residents of different social standings from different parts of Japan.
The lecturer referred to the fact that Western media are misrepresenting the truth about the Korean issue to mislead the world public with false reports.
He urged Koreans in Japan to judge the developments with the Juche-based viewpoint as master of reunification.
The tremendous nuclear deterrence of the DPRK was proved through the successful test-fire of Hwasong-12, a ground-to-ground medium-to-long range strategic ballistic rocket, on May 14, he stated.
He stressed that when the DPRK wins in the nuclear standoff with the U.S., a radical turn will be brought in the way for Korea’s reunification desired by the entire nation.
He called upon all Koreans in the north and the south and abroad to pool their efforts for building a reunified powerful country with confidence and optimism for the future.
At the end of the lecture, the participants made signatures on a large flag depicting the reunified Korean peninsula.
