Invariable ambition for aggression

Pyongyang, April 21 (KCNA) -- Reconnaissance planes belonging to the U.S. Pacific Command have made flights almost every day for the purpose of espionage on the DPRK, while "stealth" bombers and latest-type fighters equipped with special missiles have been deployed forward for military exercises for striking the DPRK's underground fortresses, according to a news report. The U.S. warhawks are alleging that the intentional opening to the public of the sophisticated combat equipment is aimed at "deterring the DPRK's possible invasion." What they really seek, however, is to justify their criminal military buildup and complete war preparations under the pretext of the DPRK's "threat." For this purpose, the united states sent an "F-15" Flying Corps, several fighter-bombers and two gunboats to South Korea in February. In March it reorganized the U.S. 8th Army in South Korea into a field army system and decided on an additional supply to the South Korean puppets of 168 long-distance multiple rocket launchers, 112 new-type launchers and other sophisticated combat equipment. The facts show that a war may break out on the Korean peninsula any moment due to the U.S. warmaniacs' arms buildup. Though the united states is paying lip-service to peace on the Korean peninsula, its invariable aggressive design and military policy against the DPRK remain unchanged. If the United States is truly interested in peace on the peninsula, it should withdraw its aggression forces from South Korea and its vicinity. Only then, can the danger of war be removed and an atmosphere of peace created on the peninsula. We do not want war. But we never tolerate anyone who tries to hurt the dignity of our nation and the sovereignty of our country. If the United States persistently seeks war and confrontation, ignoring our efforts for peace, our people and army will answer its aggression with a thousandfold retalitation.

Pyongyang meeting marking 50th anniversary of convocation of North-South Joint Conference

Pyongyang, April 21 (KCNA) -- A Pyongyang meeting took place at the People's Palace of Culture on April 21 to mark the 50th anniversary of the historic Joint Conference of representatives of political parties and public organisations in the north and south of Korea. Yang Hyong Sop, alternate politburo member of the WPK Central committee and Chairman of the Supreme People's Assembly, made a report at the meeting. The April Joint Conference was the first pan-national assembly in which representatives of political parties and public organisations in the north and south, who were different from each other in ideology, ideal, political view and religious belief sat together for the first time after the liberation of the country, sincerely discussed the measures common to the nation and reached the consensus of views and ensured the unity of action= it was an epochal event which recorded a brilliant chapter in the history of the Korean people's struggle for the reunification of the country, the reporter said, and went on: The fatherly leader President Kim Il Sung comprehensively clarified the three principles of national reunification --independence, peaceful reunification and great national unity -- the proposal for founding the Democratic Confederal Republic of Koryo and "10-Point Programme of the Great Unity of the Whole Nation for the Reunification of the Country", which constitute the three pillars of national reunification, and other Juche-orientated programme and ways of reunification and wisely led the struggle for their materialisation. His plan for great national unity and line of national reunification are being successfully realized by General kim Jong Il. Seeing through the ardent desire of the fellow countrymen to achieve the reunification of the country by concerted efforts of the nation and the requirements of the era, General Kim Jong Il in his work "Let us reunify the country independently and peacefully through the great unity of the entire nation" comprehensively indicated the essence and principle, the tasks and ways of great national unity. To achieve great national unity at present, it is necessary to replace inter-KOREAN relations of acute confrontation with relations of reconciliation and unity, reject outside domination and interference and wage a vigorous struggle against the traitors to the nation and anti-reunification forces who are in collusion with outsiders. All the Koreans in the north, south and abroad must hold contacts and visit one another, promote dialogue and strengthen solidarity. Inter-Korean relations have been placed in the worst plight and a thick barrier has been laid in the way of national reunification by the "civilian"-veiled traitors who had engaged themselves in flunkeyism and dependence on foreign forces in south korea. This more urgently requires that the principle of national independence be observed. South Korean politicians who truly want to take the road of patriotism for the country and the nation must not follow their predecessors' political mode of depending on outsiders but make a resolute decision to solve the reunification issue, the internal affair of the nation, in concert with the fellow countrymen. The United States should give up their aggressive ambition to stifle the DPRK by force of arms, withdraw its troops from South Korea and refrain from doing things obstructive to the peace and reunification of the Korean peninsula and national unity. If the South Korean authorities make no policy switchover and give lip service to dialogue, they cannot bring a good result to the nation. If the
