Pyongyang, June 10 (KCNA) — A spokesman for the Central Committee of the DPRK Red Cross Society gave an answer to question raised by KCNA on Friday as regards the fact that organizations of various circles in south Korea are staging a vigorous action in demand of the repatriation of detained DPRK women citizens.
A vigorous struggle for the repatriation of detained Kim Ryon Hui and other twelve DPRK women citizens was launched in south Korea with the people of different strata involved, amid the growing demand for the liquidation of evils done by the Park Geun Hye group of traitors for confrontation with the fellow countrymen.
But the authorities of south Korea are intentionally turning away from the matter of their repatriation, despite of the appeal and demand by the people from all walks of life, and the “National Assembly” and ruling and opposition parties agreed to adopt a NA resolution “urging” the “reunion of divided families in the south and the north on August 15”, turning aside the issue.
Criticizing such wrong attitude, the spokesman said that the detention of DPRK woman citizens, who were abducted and taken away to south Korea, is a product of the heinous anti-DPRK confrontation policy of the Park group, which was sternly punished by the public, and it is an unpardonable unethical crime.
He further said:
If the south Korean authorities are truly interested in the issues of “human rights”, “humanitarianism” and “separated families”, they should pay attention to the strong demand of the families of those abductees and settle the issue of their repatriation at an early date before anything else.
It is preposterous to discuss on the “humanitarianism” and reunion of divided families and relatives, in disregard of such hideous unethical crimes as imposing bitter pains and misfortune on the compatriots by artificially making new “divided families”.
Any humanitarian cooperation between the north and the south, including reunion of divided families and relatives, can never be expected before the unconditional repatriation of the detained women citizens of the DPRK.
We will watch the attitude of the south Korean authorities and strive for the repatriation of the detained women citizens to the last.
