Unquenchable trend of the June 15 reunification era


Great obstacles are laid on the way to development of the inter-Korean relations and Korea¡¯s reunification owing to the advent of the Lee Myung-bak regime.

The Lee regime framed the policy of pro-US sycophancy and confrontation against north Korea and makes attempt to debase all the successes the Korean nation achieved under the banner of the June 15 joint declaration. It faces denunciation of the Korean nation and progressive humanity of the world as it swims against the era of independence.

Reality urgently requests the Korean people who love the country and nation to firmly defend the June 15 joint declaration and accelerate the movement for independent reunification based on it. 

The June 15 North-South Joint Declaration is the declaration for independent reunification common to the nation that embodies the desire of the Korean nation for independent demand and reunification and clarifies the way of independent reunification. The core of the joint declaration is national independence and the main idea is national independent reunification.

The north and the south of Korea declared to the world that the Korean nation would solve the issue of reunification with united efforts of the Korean nation without dependence on the foreign forces.

During the past 8 years, the Korean nation achieved great successes in the inter-Korean relations and movement for independent reunification to implement the joint declaration under the banner of it. It shows the justness and vitality of the joint declaration that stresses the national independence.

The June 15 joint declaration opened a new history of reconciliation and unity on the Korean Peninsula. The sky, sea and road were opened and reconciliation and unity between the north and south of Koreans were promoted through visits.

The Korean people have demonstrated the spirit and wisdom of the Korean nation under the banner of the June 15 joint declaration. The ministerial talks, dialogues in different sectors, functions for reunification on the occasion of the June 15 and August 15 were held and exchange and cooperation were prompted between the north and the south of Korea in last 8 years. In the process, the Koreans in the north and south of Korea fully recognized that the united efforts of the Korean nation are the best way to realize reunification.     

The successes eloquently prove the June 15 joint declaration is the reunification declaration of national independence, a banner of struggle and sword of victory to be held higher to the day of reunification.

The October 4 Declaration for Development of North-South Relations and Peace and Prosperity was adopted in Pyongyang. Thanks to the adoption of declaration, an action program for applying the June 15 joint declaration to practice in an all-round way was made.

The historic June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration help the Koreans to resolve all the problems arising in the process of reunification and realize the historic cause of reunification, a long-cherished desire of the Korean nation.   

The Korean nation should vigorously intensify the movement for independent reunification, adhering to the June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration.   

Now the cause of Korean nation for independent reunification undergoes temporary trials.

However, the pro-US conservative force that runs counter to independent reunification would only invite self-destruction. The south Koreans from all social standings accelerate the advance of independent reunification against the US to frustrate the anti-reunification plots of the Lee regime, holding aloft the banner of the June 15 joint declaration.     

Recently, the Solidarity for Implementing the June 15 South-North Joint Declaration of south Korea said that the Korean nation would realize reunification whenever the situation may change, should the June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration are implemented. The South Headquarters of the National Alliance for the Country¡¯s Reunification noted that the echo of ¡°By our nation itself¡± would resound in south Korea through thorough implementation of the joint declaration, though the conservative ruling force makes desperate attempt.      

The world progressive people including the AINDF and the US Committee for Supporting the South Korean People¡¯s Struggle firmly express positive support to the Korean people¡¯s righteous struggle to implement the June 15 joint declaration and realize independent reunification of Korea without fail.
