Key to Mending Inter-Korean Relations Is National Independence: Rodong Sinmun

Pyongyang, February 18 (KCNA) — The anti-reunification conservative forces of south Korea are running wild with confrontation ruckus and the U.S. is freaking out to block the climate of reconciliation and peace between the north and the south being created on the Korean peninsula and to realize its ambition to strangle the DPRK, Rodong Sinmun Sunday says in an article.

But, such vicious obstructive moves can never reverse the trend of the times heading towards the improvement of inter-Korean relations and the independent reunification, the article stresses, adding:
What is all the more important in repairing the inter-Korean relations and achieving national unity and reunification is to solve any issue regarding the inter-Korean relations on the basis of the firm stand of national independence, not depending upon outsiders, now that the U.S. and the south Korean conservative forces’ moves to hamper reunification have reached the zenith.
Independence is a way for improvement of inter-Korean relations, peace and reunification, whereas dependence on the outsiders is the apple of discord that stokes mistrust and standoff between the fellow countrymen and increases the danger of a nuclear war.
The relations between the north and the south were driven into the worst state of catastrophe during the conservative regime in south Korea. It’s because the conservative ruling forces had only indulged in sycophancy and treachery and standoff with fellow countrymen, crying out for “priority to the relations” and “strengthened alliance” with the U.S.
Nine-year tenure of office by the conservatives provided a serious lesson that the inter-Korean relations will not evade doom if they turn their faces away from the principle of By Our Nation Itself and run amuck in confrontation with fellow countrymen by cooperating with and throwing in their lot with the outside forces.
A fundamental key to mending the inter-Korean relations is to solve all issues under the unfurled banner of national independence.
The anti-reunification forces at home and abroad still present a vicious challenge but no ordeals and difficulties can shake the will of the Korean nation desiring the improved north-south relations and the country’s reunification.
