The ASSPUK and Juche Idea Study Group of England issued the following joint
statement on the occasion of the 67th anniversary of the foundation of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea on September 9th;

   The foundation of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea on September 9th 1948 proudly announced to the world the birth of Juche Korea , an independent socialist state with invincible might . The foundation of the DPRK was the first step in the road of Juche-orientated state building and the building of a prosperous powerful nation. The DPRK was founded by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung as a pure manifestation of the will of the  entire Korean people north and south. The DPRK is the only legitimate state in Korea as it was founded by the will of the Korean people. The DPRK is the fruit of the anti-Japanese armed struggle led by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung. Under the leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung the Korean people solved the question of power which is the most pressing question in the revolution .
           The foundation of the DPRK was a powerful inspiration to the oppressed peoples of  of the world ,groaning under imperialist oppression, in their struggle for independence and national liberation. It was also  a great inspiration to the international proletariat advancing towards socialism .
    The DPRK under the wise leadership of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung fully completed the tasks of the anti-imperialist , anti- feudal democratic revolution in a short space of time and switched over to the socialist revolution proving the validity of the Juche-orientated theory on continuous revolution . The DPRK is not a replica of another country and pursues independent Juche-orientated policies. It is based firmly on the principles of independence, self-sufficiency and self-defence.
                                  Now the DPRK is rapidly developing the economy by relying on  its own resources and in defiance of the sanctions and harsh blockade of the US imperialists and the UN. It has shown it is the most independent state in the world by refusing to bow down before US imperialism.                                                        As the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il said


" Our Republic is an independent socialist State that absolutely maintains its Juche character and thoroughly preserves its national identity in its development and activities.


     The Juche character and national identity are the independence and lifeline of a country, a nation and the masses of the people. The struggle of the masses for independence is waged with the country and nation as a unit, so the party, the government and the masses of each country should conduct the revolution and construction independently and creatively as masters."
                               Under the wise leadership of President Kim Il Sung the DPRK created a people-centred socialist system in which there is no exploitation and oppression . The improvement of the people's living standards is the supreme principle of state activity and this is underpinned by legalisation. The DPRK  introduced free medical and free education. It abolished taxation in 1974. The DPRK is a people's paradise. As the great eternal leader President Kim Il Sung said
"Our people are now enjoying fully independent and creative lives in the embrace of the Republic, as masters of the state and society.
In our country all the people exercise their full rights to indepen­dence through their active participation in the political life of the state. They are adding lustre to their worthwhile lives through their creative struggle to achieve the high aim set by the Party, helping and leading each other forward, closely united on the basis of revo­lutionary constancy and comradeship. All the material and cultural needs, such as food, clothing, and housing, are met by the state, which also provides them with secure jobs according to their abili­ties. They are leading equally happy lives, receiving the benefits of free education, free medical care and so on from the state and soci­ety.

  Today under the leadership of dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un the DPRK  upholds the Songun revolutionary line under the uplifted banner of the Juche idea.  The people are united solidly around the leader and the Party . The DPRK under the leadership of dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un is thwarting all attempts of the US imperialists and hostile forces to stifle it and is marching forward to the final victory of Songun !

S. Korean Authorities Denounced for Creating Complexity in North-South Relations

 Pyongyang, September 3 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA Thursday as regards the fact that the south Korean chief executive during her foreign trip let loose such disturbing remarks as describing a series of incidents that occurred in the area along the Demilitarized Zone as the "north's provocations" and expressed "thanks for the constructive role" played by someone:
    All the Koreans are feeling relieved as the serious crisis that could have led to an armed conflict between the north and the south was tided over and they are unanimous in their hope that the joint press release that was agreed at the north-south high-level urgent contact would be fulfilled with sincerity to create a new environment for improving the relations and achieving peace on the Korean Peninsula.
    A Red Cross working contact is slated to take place for the reunions of separated families and relatives in coming September 7th under the north-south agreement and other preparations are also in the making for the improvement of the north-south relations.
    However, the south Korean authorities are repeatedly uttering wild remarks chilling this atmosphere, thereby creating complexity in the north-south relations again.
    The south Korean chief executive who set on her foreign trip on Sept. 2 falsified the truth about the recent situation while talking about "provocation by the north in the DMZ" and asserting "tension might escalate any moment". She went the lengths of mentioning the "constructive role" played by someone, a seriously insult to the DPRK, and sophism devoid of elementary political awareness.
    As unanimously estimated by the public at home and abroad, the DPRK proposed the north-south high-level urgent contact on its own initiative from a transparent independent stand in reflection of the fundamental interests and the desire of the nation and provided a dramatic occasion of achieving peace on the Korean Peninsula and improving the north-south relations with sincere efforts.
    The south Korean chief executive, defying this stark reality, let loose ill words while making eyes at others during her foreign trip. This clearly proves that she pursues north-south confrontation in reliance on someone despite her lip-service to reconciliation and cooperation.
    Ill-boding remarks being heard from her juniors are problematic but what is all the more serious are irresponsible remarks the chief executive is unhesitatingly making in breach of the spirit of the north-south agreement and the trend of the times. These are very serious development making it hard to judge issues high on agenda for repairing the north-south relations.
    In fact, one may say the north-south relations are like thin ice.
    Therefore, the DPRK advised the south Korean authorities to keep and take good control of the north-south ties that were put on the track of reconciliation and detente with much effort and to specially guard against those forces displeased with the process to improve the ties with particular attention.
    If the south Korean chief executive has an elementary political insight, she should be careful about her behavior and words that can turn the tide of the situation against will in such a sensitive time as now.
    She should also clearly remember that the force promoting the improvement of the north-south ties and preserving peace on the peninsula are the Korean nation itself, not outsiders.
    If the south Korean authorities persist in utterances seriously rattling the nerves of the dialogue partner while peddling the internal issue of the nation abroad, the north-south relations cannot but suffer from the repetition of the evil cycle of confrontation.
    Whether the hard-won north-south agreement is substantially implemented to pave the path for improving the relations or not and whether the situation again reaches an extreme phase or not entirely depend on the attitude of the south Korean authorities. -0-

KCNA Commentary Accuses S. Korean Regime of Spoiling Atmosphere for North-South Reconciliation

 Pyongyang, September 3 (KCNA) -- All Koreans and the international community have followed the situation on the Korean Peninsula since the north-south joint press release was made public.
    Now that the situation which inched close to a war has reached detente, it is a prerequisite to peace and security on the peninsula and in other parts of Northeast Asia to safely control the hard-won atmosphere for reconciliation.
    However, media, experts and individual politicians in south Korea are keen on twisting the spirit of the joint press release.
    The south Korean regime unhesitatingly asserted that it should not "over-speed" the improvement of its relations with the north, pining hope on it and slackening vigilance.
    A security meeting of Chongwadae called for "putting the lid on over-optimism" as north-south negotiations have not yet come to an end but have just begun.
    A spokesman for the "Ministry of Unification" asserted that there is no need to expect too much from the projected reunion of separated families and relatives from the north and the south as "over-speeding should be banned in the development of north-south relations now that the "May 24 step" has not yet been lifted.
    Notably, Kim Kwan Jin, chief of the security office of Chongwadae, and Hong Yong Phyo, minister of "Unification," who came to the contact, is floating the rumor that as the contact was the "first one that wrested a definite apology from the north" and brought a "stepping stone to ending an evil cycle", the "May 24 step" might be lifted only when the north "makes an apology" for "torpedoing Cheonan warship", takes a measure for preventing its recurrence and punishes those responsible for it.
    Timed to coincide with their assertion, the conservative media in south Korea are busy misleading the public opinion, asserting it is not necessary to pin too much hope on the north-south agreement.
    All these ill-intended outbursts are closely related to the largest-ever "integrated firepower annihilating drill 2015" staged by the south Korean regime in league with the U.S. forces on August 28 shortly after the north-south high-level urgent contact.
    Even a mere child knows that such reckless remarks and military actions provoking the dialogue partner and escalating tensions might chill the atmosphere of the north-south relations and disturb the safe control of the situation.
    All facts make the public become skeptical about whether the south Korean regime is sincere in its efforts to mend the north-south relations or not.
    Improvement of the north-south relations is of weighty significance in the history of the nation as it is directly related to the destiny of all Koreans.
    A mere reckless remark and a simple rash action might adversely affect the situation.
    No one is entitled to violate the north-south agreement which both the north and the south promised to implement before all Koreans.
    Whether the north-south relations are repaired or not totally hinges on with what attitude the north and the south opt for solving problems.
    The north and the south should opt for mending their relations from their honest stand and attitude to reunify the country through cooperation and unity but not chill the atmosphere and deliberately lay obstacles in the way of improving the relations.
    All Koreans should keep strict vigilance against the moves of the forces undesirous of rapid development of the north-south relations and thoroughly smash the sinister acts of inciting confrontation. The north and the south are obliged to properly control the hard-won phase of reconciliation.
    All Koreans and history are watching whether the north-south agreement specified in the joint press release is implemented or not. -0-

ASSPUK , JISGE and UK KFA support statement of DPRK NDC Policy Dept "S. Korean Authorities Urged Not to Behave Contrary to Hard-won Atmosphere of Improving Inter-Korean Relations"

               London 3rd of September Juche 104(2015)
                           The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK), the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE) and the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) today issued a joint statement in support of the statement of the Policy Department of the National Defence Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea "S. Korean Authorities Urged Not to Behave Contrary to Hard-won Atmosphere of Improving Inter-Korean Relations" made on the 2nd of September ;

We support the statement made by the spokesman of the Policy Department of the National Defence Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea because the south Korean authorities are seriously undermining what was achieved at the recent north-south contact at Panmunjom on the 24th of August .
                   The Korean peninsula was  a hairs-breadth away from a catastrophic fratricidal conflict which could have quickly become a nuclear exchange that would have threatened the existence of  humanity . However this was averted owing to the peace-loving and patient efforts of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea fully backed by the might of Songun and the resolute , principled and revolutionary anti-imperialist stance of the supreme revolutionary leadership of the DPRK . The DPRK itself took the initiative to hold the contact.
The south Korean regime assented to the contact because it was scared of being
annihilated . The south Korean chief executive was scared that she might face a People's Court in a reunified Korea and meet her end just as her father did.

The hard-won agreement represented the hope of the Korean and world people for peace and the easing of inter-Korean tensions. However the south Korean side has cast aspersions over the agreement. In fact the DPRK never apologised  or admitted responsibility for the landmine explosion incident. It merely expressed regret for the injuries sustained by the south Korean soldiers.
                       The statement of the Policy Dept of the DPRK NDC points out that
"The south Korean authorities' reckless act has reached the phase of staging "integrated firepower annihilating drill 2015" targeting the compatriots in the north.
    Paying no heed to the changed atmosphere, the warmongers opened fire at "red marks" designated according to "operation" allegedly to cope with "north's provocation", military confrontation hysteria and wanton infringement upon the dignity of the DPRK.
    The gravity of the situation was that even the south Korean chief executive joined warmongers to hurl them into the confrontation rack
et."

         If they really desire the relaxation of tensions, improved inter-Korean relations and reunification the south Korean regime should cease spreading malevolent falsehoods about the north-south contact and  should cease all military exercises targeting the DPRK  .

KCNA Commentary Accuses U.S. of Posing Nuclear Threat to World and Proliferating Nukes

 Pyongyang, September 1 (KCNA) -- It was disclosed by a U.S. internet newssite recently that the U.S. had pushed forward a plan to drop 12 more A bombs on 12 cities of Japan hard to destroy with ordinary bombs for the purpose of verifying "A bomb effect" after dropping A bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during the Pacific War.
    According to what was discussed by military experts on August 13, 1945, the third A bomb, more powerful than those dropped earlier, was standing by in the Mariana Islands and 12 more A bombs including that were under an additional dropping plan.
    The U.S. drop of A bombs, the first nuclear disaster against mankind, was monstrous human rights abuses.
    About 700 000 people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki fell victim to the drop of A bombs.
    Even today thousands of people have to receive the treatment of the diseases resulting from radioactive rays among the survivors of the A-bombing.
    However, the U.S. dropping of A-bombs has not yet been brought to an international military tribunal.
    Recently the speaker of the State Duma of Russia asserted the need to refer the U.S. dropping of A-bombs on Japan to an international military tribunal, adding that no statute of limitation is applicable to the hideous crimes against humanity.
    The U.S. is a nuclear war criminal and chiefly to blame for posing a nuclear threat to the world and proliferating nukes in it.
    The U.S. is styling itself a proactive player in the world denuclearization and a model in nuclear disarmament, talking volumes about "a world without nuclear weapons". But it is steadily modernizing its nuclear arsenal, pursuing with increased zeal its scenario to dominate the world with nukes. It is busy developing and producing new type nuclear weapons, conducting ceaseless concealed nuclear tests.
    The U.S. keeps proliferating nukes as evidenced by its recognition of Israel's access to nukes and discussion on a proposal for stepping up the nuclear weaponization with the member states of NATO in breach of the spirit of the NPT.
    It is speeding up the development and modernization of nukes under the pretext of denuclearization.
    It is mulling investing a trillion U.S. dollars for modernizing nuclear weapons in nearly 30 years to come.
    Last year it made the biggest financial allocation for the research, development and trial production of nukes since the 1950s. It is contemplating investing 355 billion U.S. dollars for modernizing nuclear warheads in nearly 10 years to come.
    It built a base for producing new type weapon grade plutonium and nuclear test ground in Los Alamos, New Mexico State, and started enriching uranium in a new facility in Tennessee State.
    It is refusing to ratify the CTBT while pushing forward the establishment of a global MD system and the project to put its "conception of prompt global strike" into practice.
    Washington's nuclear policy sparked a race for nuclear weapons development and manufacture in the international arena and, consequently, the world is exposed to increasing danger of a nuclear war.
    No one can vouch that such tragedy as what happened in Hiroshima and Nagasaki will not repeat itself as long as Washington continues to brandish nuclear weapons
    The U.S. can never evade the responsibility for bringing the dark clouds of a nuclear war to hang over humankind. -0-

S. Korean Authorities Urged Not to Behave Contrary to Hard-won Atmosphere of Improving Inter-Korean Relations

Pyongyang, September 2 (KCNA) -- Very ill-boding ceaseless demeanors chilling the atmosphere of improving the inter-Korean relations have been reported from south Korea since the publication of the joint press release to bring pain to Koreans.
    A spokesman for the Policy Department of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK issued a statement on Wednesday, prompted by its desire to keep the hard-won atmosphere of improving the north-south relations afloat and open up their prospect.
    The south Korean authorities should, to begin with, stop dishonest demeanors of ceaselessly floating story that "security crisis was caused by the north first" and it is "chiefly to blame" for the recent dangerous crisis.
    The chief executive of south Korea blustered at Chongwadae that "the crisis was caused by the north's landmine and shelling".
    Kim Kwan Jin, chief of the security office of Chongwadae who came to the contact, is spreading rumor that the south wrested "apology from the north", claiming that the north "made an apology" for "planting landmine" and pledged to make efforts to defuse tensions and prevent the recurrence of the case.
    Worse still, Hong Yong Phyo, minister of "Unification", unhesitatingly let loose a spate of sophism that "May 24 step" can be lifted when priority is given to the "north's apology" for the Cheonan warship sinking case, measure for preventing the recurrence of the case and punishment of those responsible for it as this opportunity is the "first instance" in which the south wrested a "sure apology" from the north and the south laid a "stepping stone for ending the vicious cycle".
    What is strange is that the south Korean authorities are spreading rumor that "regret" expressed by the north in the joint press release is the north's "admission" and "apology" for the suspicious case which occurred in the Demilitarized Zone.
    They asserted that the word "regret" means the "apology of north Korean style" as it is a technical term which contains the intention of "apology" both from the legal point of view and in the light of practice at international political negotiations.
    A linguistic expert of south Korea said that "expression of regret" means, in fact, "the intention of inquiring after a sick person," clarifying its true meaning.
    In a word, "regret" is no more than an expression that "I am sorry for the case".
    A spokesman for the "Ministry of Unification", when asked on what ground it concluded the landmine blast in the DMZ as "a provocation from the north," was tongue-tied and simply uttered what was stated in the joint press release was a correct answer as he was not in a position to go into details."
    This was quite different from the fact that the south remained silent about the blast of the similar "landmine" in the same place along the DMZ on August 23.
    "Mine blast" of such kind that occurred in the DMZ is just a common accident.
    Misjudgment of the rival would only entail catastrophic consequences in the north-south relations. The south should not forget this even a moment.
    Next, the south Korean authorities should stop such foolish act of bluffing that the adoption of the joint press release was a "victory of theory of principle" won by them.
    The south Korean political camp is noisily claiming that the south "won a score" and the north "lost a score" in the match for weathering the recent crisis.
    Kim Kwan Jin and Hong Yong Phyo are main players here.
    They are asserting that the joint press release was a result of the negotiations based on their consistent principle in which the "government" flatly rejected the north's demand even though it urged the south to stop anti-north loudspeaker broadcasts while creating crisis.
    Those concerned of Chongwadae are also vociferating that the south forced the north to accept "the theory of principle" while "highly estimating the joint press release as it contained an apology from the north and its promise to prevent the recurrence of such incident as requested by Park Geun Hye."
    An agreement by both sides is possible on mutual understanding of agenda items and recognition of them.
    The south Korean chief executive, not content with getting busy making "encouraging phone calls", called law-makers from the "Saenuri Party" to Chongwadae on August 26 where she highly appreciated the joint press release as a result of "firm will" and "security awareness based on principle". She even praised the negotiators for "approaching the contact on principle for the security of the people and the country". This is something beyond common sense.
    Irony is that the representative of the "Saenuri Party" said the "only way of checking the north's provocation" is "resolute punishment" just the way he uttered before his American master while kowtowing to it. In response to his nonsense, such rubbish as "theory of principle for security" backed by "flank support" and "action of keeping pace" were heard all at the same time.
    We are of the view that the successful tide-over of the crisis and the adoption of the joint press release were ascribable to the powerful capability for defence of the DPRK based on nuclear forces and the might of the single-minded unity of the army and people of the country.
    This is also the result of the unanimous desire of all the Koreans to live in a peaceful environment free from confrontation and war.
    It was a fair estimation by the world public.
    The south Korean authorities should stop at once pointing an accusing finger at the DPRK, asserting that the accounts of the briefing made by the director of the General Political Bureau of the KPA on the result of the urgent contact were different from what was said at the contact."
    The conservative reptile media in south Korea are misleading the public mindset, asserting the director of the General Political Bureau of the Korean People's Army was "double-tongued" when he claimed that "the south Korean regime fabricated a groundless case and unilaterally judged the situation which was created unilaterally" and that the "government should protest against it."
    What the director of the KPA General Political Bureau mentioned as regards the urgent contact reflected the stand of the party, army and people of the DPRK.
    Saying this or that about it cannot but be viewed as a behavior devoid of elementary etiquette toward the dialogue partner.
    What should not be overlooked is that the south Korean authorities unhesitatingly made such ridiculous remarks that they should not slacken alert, pinning hope on improving the north-south relations, but avoid "over-speed".
    The security meeting of Chongwadae held on August 27 called for refraining from having "too much optimism" as the north-south negotiations are not over but they are just a beginning.
    A spokesman for the "Ministry of Unification" even said that speedy development of the north-south relations should be avoided as the "May 24 step" has not yet been lifted and, therefore, "not much should be expected from the reunions of separated families and relatives".
    Assertion calling for avoiding "speedy" development of the north-south ties is a revelation of ill intention of cross-minded guys who are displeased with the improvement and development of the north-south ties.
    Yun Pyong Se went the lengths of talking such rubbish that the adoption of the joint press release is a "victory of the close south Korea-U.S. alliance".
    The south Korean authorities' reckless act has reached the phase of staging "integrated firepower annihilating drill 2015" targeting the compatriots in the north.
    Paying no heed to the changed atmosphere, the warmongers opened fire at "red marks" designated according to "operation" allegedly to cope with "north's provocation", military confrontation hysteria and wanton infringement upon the dignity of the DPRK.
    The gravity of the situation was that even the south Korean chief executive joined warmongers to hurl them into the confrontation racket.
    Dialogue is not a veil for concealing the confrontation scenario.
    Nothing will be more shameless than trumpeting about the implementation of the agreement while staging saber-rattling.
    Very serious are these developments in just several days after the publication of the joint press release.
    The north-south relations can never be mended by unilateral sincere efforts.
    The south Korean authorities should not make a foolish misinterpretation of the hard weathering of such crisis on the eve of war and refrain from such act as threatening the hard-won peace.
    Those who took part in the contact, in particular, should be prudent in their remarks.
    What is essential at present is that any remark and any behavior would be a barometer judging whether one has etiquette of respecting one's dialogue partner or considering one as an object of mistrust and antagonism.
    The south Korean authorities should pay heed with utmost consideration to the advice of the DPRK reflecting its patience and generosity.
    An agreement by both sides should be implemented and one step taken today will lead to ten, nay hundreds steps tomorrow.
    The tiding over of the crisis does not mean the achievement of peace.
    We are following with higher vigilance the future moves of the south Korean authorities. -0
