Pyongyang, October 3 (KCNA) -- All-Korean Committee for Implementation of June 15 Joint Declaration Friday sent an appeal to all Koreans in the north, the south and abroad on the occasion of the 7th anniversary of the historic October 4 declaration.
The committee in an appeal stressed the need to open a new phase of
peace, co-prosperity and reunification under the unfurled banner of the
north-south joint declarations.
The appeal called upon all Koreans to dynamically turn out in the
drive to firmly defend the north-south joint declarations and implement
them by their concerted efforts.
It called upon them to thoroughly reject all sorts of such
mud-slinging as denying the other party and fostering confrontation
between fellow countrymen.
It called for opposing and rejecting outsiders' interference and
dependence on them in the issue of national reunification and settling
the reunification issue independently by the concerted efforts of the
Koreans as proposed by the north-south joint declarations.
It underscored the need to make the committee a nationwide
organization for the reunification movement which steers the movement of
people from all walks life in the north, the south and abroad.
It underlined the need to further boost the unity and solidarity of
all Koreans in the north, the south and abroad and kindle the torch for
implementing the north-south joint declarations in all places where
Koreans live and thus usher in the second June 15 era of reunification.
2015 is a significant year marking the 70th anniversary of national
liberation and the 15th anniversary of the historic June 15 joint
declaration, it said, and went on:
Let's make 2015 a year of historic turn to usher in a new heyday of
the movement for national reunification in the same high spirit as was
displayed when the August 15 liberation was achieved and with the same
hot wind with which the June 15 era was ushered in!
In order to make 2015 a year of great turn shining in the history
for the reunification movement, All-Korean Committee for Implementation
of June 15 Joint Declaration will form a joint preparatory body, pool
all wisdom and energies and exert all efforts to let all fellow
countrymen positively join in the drive.
The appeal stressed the need to greet the 15th anniversary of the
historic June 15 joint declaration and the 70th anniversary of the
significant August 15 national liberation as grand festivals for
national reunification to be specially recorded in the national history.
