The Association for the Study of Songun Politics (ASSPUK) , Juche Idea Study Group of England (JISGE), the UK Korean Friendship Association (UK KFA) and British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula (BSCPRKP) issued the following joint statement on the talks that have been held in Pyongyang the capital of the DPRK between the DPRK supreme leader respected Marshal KIM JONG UN and the envoys of the south Korean president:
The Korean and world people are rejoicing over these talks as an agreement for the holding of an inter-Korean summit was concluded at the talks . This will make a massive contribution to easing the acute tension on the Korean peninsula which has been caused by the US imperialists and also will make progress towards inter-Korean co-operation and reunification.
This breakthrough has come about because of the policy of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN for independent peaceful reunification .
Respected Marshal KIM JONG UN has many times reiterated his support for independent peaceful reunification, for example at the 7th Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea..
Basically respected Marshal KIM JONG UN is carrying out the behests of the great leaders comrade KIM IL SUNG and comrade KIM JONG IL on national reunification . Indeed respected Marshal KIM JONG UN is pushing forward the noble idea of "By Our Nation Itself ".
This significant progress towards peace and reunification has only come about because of the Songun policy and the DPRK's nuclear deterrent .
Some dishonest forces are pretending that the DPRK has shifted its position . This is false the DPRK some time ago put forward the policy of 'freeze for freeze' . It has always maintained that is nuclear weapons are self-defensive and if the US ends its hostile policy towards the DPRK it will negotiate over its nuclear deterrent .
The US imperialists need to stay out of the inter-Korean peace process . If the US wants peace on the Korean peninsula.
It should end for good its hostile anti-DPRK policy .
KOREA IS ONE !
US OUT OF KOREA !
