Exploits of Kim Jong Il Praised

    Pyongyang, March 30 (KCNA) -- Yehia Jakariya Khairallah, chairman of the Egyptian Committee for the Study of the Juche Idea, issued a statement on March 22 on the occasion of the 11th anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il's assumption of office as chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK. He stressed that Kim Jong Il decisively shattered the aggressive attempt of the imperialists with the outstanding and tested leadership for the last 11 years and led the Korean people's struggle for defending and glorifying the socialist system centering on the popular masses to victory.
    He noted that Kim Jong Il pursued the Songun policy based on the Juche idea, a unique political mode, and overcame difficulties when the Korean people experienced the trials unprecedented in history, in particular.
    He continued:
    Thanks to his Songun leadership, the military might of the DPRK has grown stronger and the Korean people brought about great changes in the struggle to build a great prosperous powerful socialist nation and achieve the country's reunification.
    The Korean people, single-heartedly united around Kim Jong Il, are countering the U.S. tough policy with the toughest policy.
    They under his Songun leadership will emerge victorious in the fierce confrontation with the U.S. and firmly defend the sovereignty of the country and the dignity of the nation.

Japan Urged to Redeem Past Crimes

    Pyongyang, March 30 (KCNA) -- We strongly demand Japan shake itself free from anachronistic conception of xenophobia and confrontation and redeem as early as possible its past history stained with blood of other nations, said the DPRK delegate on March 22 in his address on racial discrimination, agenda item six, at the 60th session of the UN Commission on Human Rights held in Geneva. The lack of full redemption of past injustice and assailants' admission of their legal responsibility and apology, their punishment and compensation is the root cause of continued crimes against humanity, injustice and immoral acts, he said, and went on:
    The responsibility for the violence openly committed against Koreans in Japan today entirely rests with the Japanese authorities who are whitewashing and even justifying Japan's crime-woven past, far from drawing a lesson from it.
    The delegate made a thorough exposure of the most brutal policy of exterminating the Korean nation enforced by Japan during its military aggression on Korea and ensuing 40-odd year long occupation.
    Failing to sincerely admit its legal responsibility for its past crimes and make an apology, Japan is choosing to foster revengeful thought among the people of younger generation through the chief executive's visits to the "Yasukuni Shrine" and intentional justification of Japan's past crimes and remarks inciting hatred for other nations by high-placed cabinet ministers and politicians and teaching of distorted history.
    Japan is tenaciously clinging to its hostile policy toward the DPRK, instituting one law after another to apply sanctions against it. Underlying these acts are contempt and hatred for other nations.

KCNA Warns against U.S. Move to Establish MD

    Pyongyang, March 30 (KCNA) -- The U.S. Navy will deploy a destroyer equipped with the Aegis combat system in the East Sea of Korea in September to serve as a long-range surveillance and tracking platform as part of efforts to "cope with the possible attack from countries such as north Korea," according to Kyodo News The Secretary of the U.S. Navy said on Mar. 22 that the measure was taken according to the order of Bush to accelerate the fielding of a BMD (ballistic missile defense) initial defensive operation capability and the Japanese chief executive welcomed it the next day. An official in charge of inspection and assessment of operations of the U.S. Department of Defense at a U.S. Senate hearing on Mar.11 had said that the present MD in the U.S. was insufficient for protecting it from the ballistic missile attack of north Korea. At the hearing the director for Missile Defense of the Department "praised" Japan for its decision to introduce the MD developed by the U.S. in the fiscal 2004.
    The main purpose of the U.S. move to establish the MD is to neutralize other powers' military potentials including nuclear deterrent and establish an unchallenged position as the only superpower.
    For this strategic purpose the U.S. unilaterally pulled out of the ABM treaty defying the concern, denunciation and rebuff of the international community.
    The U.S. administration has since sped up the establishment of the MD in real earnest. It is contemplating spending 9 billion U.S. dollars for the MD out of the budget for this year and 10.3 billion U.S. dollars next year.
    The U.S. is instigating Japan, Australia and other countries to simultaneously push ahead with the establishment of the MD in the Asia-Pacific region. This also requires a colossal amount of fund. The official of the U.S. Department of Defense praised Japan at the hearing as regards the introduction of the MD in the hope of attaining its aim with ease by use of funds and technology from other countries.
    While pushing ahead with the MD which requires an additional huge budget as well as military spending by other countries, the U.S. is still asserting that it is aimed to cope with the "missile threat" from north Korea. This is a clumsy behavior unsuitable for the superpower.
    An unbroken chain of recent ballistic missile tests in different countries is by no means unrelated to the U.S. moves to establish the MD.
    If the U.S. goes ahead with the MD in disregard of the warning of the international community, the world can never escape from the danger of proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and escalated nuclear arms race.
    A lot of U.S. missile bases in and around south Korea and Japan are posing a constant threat to the DPRK.
    The DPRK does not care about whether the U.S. establishes the MD or not. But it is a right to self-defence for the DPRK to counter it as long as the U.S. is persistently pulling up it.
    After declaring the doctrine of "preemptive attack" the U.S. is working hard to plug Japan into the establishment of the MD aimed at a military attack on the DPRK. It can never remain an onlooker to this move.

Japan's U.S.-Toeing Attitude Hit

    Pyongyang, March 30 (KCNA) -- The Japanese reactionaries are going to invite ASEAN members to stage an "exercise of checking the transport of weapons of mass destruction(WMD)" in May. In this regard Rodong Sinmun in a signed commentary warns that if the DPRK judges that its sovereignty is infringed upon even a bit owing to the vicious blockade of Japanese reactionaries its army and the people will counter it with a strong retaliation.
    The commentary terms the projected exercise as the Japanese reactionaries' base act of serving the U.S. as it is aimed to actively support the U.S. in its moves to implement the "security initiative to combat proliferation" and part of their desperate moves to stifle the DPRK.
    The commentary goes on:
    The U.S. has been clamorous for the ban on the export of goods for dual use, slandering the DPRK's military buildup for just self-defense as "proliferation of WMD." As if it were not enough with this, it seeks to plug other countries into its anti-DPRK "international siege operation." It was none other than Japan which took the lead in it in real earnest.
    While pushing ahead with the "counter-terrorism strategy" since the September 11 incident and the policy to isolate and stifle the DPRK, the U.S. is set to use Japan keen to emerge a military power and launch overseas invasion, as a cheap servant in the "international siege operation" against the DPRK. The Japanese reactionaries seek to attain their criminal purpose by taking an active part in the U.S. "international siege operation." Through the projected exercise the Japanese reactionaries seek to achieve this aim. It is the objective sought by Japan in the exercise to create an atmosphere of the U.S.-led international blockade against the DPRK and environment favorable for its reinvasion of Korea. It is nothing but a foolish daydream for Japan to invade the DPRK with the U.S. backing.
    Japan is well advised to behave itself, bearing in mind that it will never escape its self-destruction if it continues running amuck like a newborn puppy knowing no fear of a tiger, availing itself of the U.S. moves to isolate and stifle the DPRK.

U.S. Escalated Moves to Establish MD under Fire

    Pyongyang, March 30 (KCNA) -- The United States is pushing forward its moves to establish the Missile Defence System (MD) citing a "threat of ballistic missile" from the DPRK as a pretext. It is aimed to mount a preemptive attack on the DPRK with ease after establishing the MD. Minju Joson today says this in a signed commentary. It goes on:
    The U.S. zealous moves to establish the MD glaringly reveal the Bush group's extremely adventurous unilateral policy toward the world.
    The story about the "threat of ballistic missile" from the DPRK spread by the U.S. is a whopping lie.
    It is as clear as noonday that the U.S. frantic moves to establish the MD to realize its invariable ambition for world domination would only upset world strategic balance, escalate the military tension, spark a new arms race and entail serious consequences.
    While frantically stepping up the establishment of the adventurous MD in a bid to realize its military domination over the world at any cost the U.S. seeks to shift the blame for all the ensuing catastrophic consequences onto the DPRK.
    Now that the U.S. is frantically pushing ahead with its moves to establish the MD in order to mount a preemptive attack on the DPRK under the pretext of its " ballistic missile threat" it is compelled to increase its capability for self-defence to cope with those moves.

U.S. - S. Korea Joint War Maneuvers under Fire

    Pyongyang, March 30 (KCNA) -- The joint war maneuvers Foal Eagle and RSOI staged by the United States and its followers against the DPRK wantonly violated the peace of the country, increased the danger of war and did serious harm to the Korean nation's cause of independent reunification. Rodong Sinmun today says this in a signed commentary as regards the close of the joint saber-rattling of the U.S. forces and the south Korean military. The news analyst goes on:
    Foal Eagle and RSOI turned out to be evermore dangerous plays with fire as they were staged at a time when the U.S. has been pushing ahead with disturbing military moves under the pretext of the nuclear issue.
    The U.S. imperialists' war maneuvers are an unpardonable challenge to the DPRK and the world peace-loving people desirous of a peaceful settlement of the nuclear issue.
    The U.S. has taken part in the Beijing six-way talks, talking about a "peaceful settlement" of the nuclear issue between the DPRK and the U.S. But as seen above, it is keen on adventurous saber-rattling targeted against the dialogue partner under the signboards of dialogue and peace. It staged the provocative war maneuvers for aggression against the DPRK right after the six-way talks while paying lip-service to dialogue. This clearly indicates once again that its loud-mouthed "dialogue" and "peace" are no more than hypocrisy and its wild design to invade the DPRK remains unchanged.
    Despite the unanimous aspiration of the Koreans for peace and reunification the situation on the Korean peninsula remains so tense that a war may break out there any moment owing to the frantic moves of the U.S. and the south Korean warhawks. Now that the process of the independent national reunification is facing a challenge of the U.S. imperialists and dark clouds of a nuclear war are hanging over the Korean peninsular due to them, the army and the people of the DPRK are determined to deal merciless blows at the aggressors.
    It is the disposition of the army and people of the DPRK to react to the enemy's hard-line policy with the toughest measure and to his "military option" with a thousand-fold military retaliation.

Full Play to National Character Called for

    Pyongyang, March 30 (KCNA) -- It is an important requirement for rejecting foreign domination and interference and bringing about the independent development of the country and the nation to preserve the national character and give full play to it. Rodong Sinmun today says this in a signed article. Giving full play to the national character is one of the basic factors of guaranteeing the existence and development of the country and the nation, the article notes, and goes on:
    National character is a quality peculiar to a nation as it is a community whose members are united close because of the same blood, language, culture and territory.
    The national character reflects the spirit of independence and cultural tradition of the nation and it serves as a precious boon to the country and the nation and an important wherewithal for socialist construction.
    Imperialists are leaving no means untried to obliterate the national character of the people, regarding "globalization" and "internationalization" as an important means for realizing their ambition for domination.
    It is a prerequisite to successfully stepping up the building of a great prosperous powerful socialist nation to give full play to the national character at present.
    It is possible to successfully build a great prosperous powerful nation of Juche only when the national character is preserved and given full play in all fields of politics, economy, ideology, culture and morality and more new advantages of the nation are created.
    Giving full play to the national character at present serves as an important guarantee for achieving great national unity and national reunification.
    The Koreans are a proud homogenous nation as they have brought their history and culture spanning 5000 years into bloom and they are advantageous to others in wisdom, talent and resourcefulness.
    When the Korean nation unites on the basis of the national commonness and under the banner of the Korean nation-first spirit, no foreign force can keep it divided. This is evidenced by the shining successes made in the movement for national reunification since the historic Pyongyang meeting and the publication of the June 15 North-South Joint Declaration.
    Only when all the Koreans in the north, the south and overseas project the common feature of the nation that has carved out its brilliant history as a homogenous one in one and the same territory and unite on its basis, can they foil the war moves of the U.S.imperialists, defend peace and stability on the Korean peninsula and achieve prosperity common to the nation.

Researches into Sandy Dust Brisk in Korea

    Pyongyang, March 30 (KCNA) -- Researches into sandy dust are proceeding in high gear with it hitting Korea quite often these days. A study group has been formed with scientists and technicians of the Central Hydrology Institute of the Hydro-Meteorological Service and the Environment Preservation and Study Centre of the Ministry of Land and Environment Preservation. They have registered successes in quickly forecasting sandy dust by correctly judging the climatic change in the areas where it develops. In close contact with all the provincial hydro-meteorological stations, they observe the sandy dust phenomenon in time and grasp the regional distribution of sandy dust and its course of movement on a scientific basis and immediately report them to all parts of the country.
    Scientists of the Geography Institute of the Academy of Sciences are doing their share in finding out the areas where sandy dust develops to hit Korea and the size of dust particles and their influence on the climate and weather of the country in time.
    Scientists of the Hygienic Institute and the Radioactive Medical Institute of the Academy of Medical Science are engaged in researches into the possible radioactive content in sandy dust and its effect on the human body.
    Scientists and technicians of the Crop Cultivation Institute and the Central Vegetable Institute of the Academy of Agricultural Science are making more concrete and comprehensive researches into the effect of sandy dust on crops.
    The energetic researches of the scientists in various fields are effectively preventing damages done to the health of man and natural environment by sandy dust.

U.S. Termed World's Biggest Human Rights Abuser

    Pyongyang, March 30 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Tuesday in a signed article brands the U.S. as the world's biggest human rights abuser. The United States is pulling up the DPRK over the human rights issue whenever an opportunity presents itself, the article says, and goes on:
    It has become customary for the U.S. to work out and release a report on human rights performance in other countries every year. It is behaving as if it were an inspector and judge of the world human rights situation. This is aimed to raise its position by wielding "the human rights club" and use it as leverage for launching aggression against other countries in a bid to put the world under its domination.
    The U.S. is the most ferocious violator of sovereignty and abuser of human rights. It does not hesitate to threaten and blackmail those countries which incur its displeasure and destroy them by mobilizing armed forces under absurd pretexts. In recent years it waged several wars of aggression against those countries.
    The U.S. bellicose forces are stepping up preparations for a nuclear war against humankind. The U.S. nuclear blackmail and its moves to provoke a nuclear war are vicious criminal acts as they create a terror-ridden atmosphere in the international community and hinder the creative activities of people and the progress of history. Its moves to provoke a nuclear war are the most hideous human rights abuse. Such being a stark fact, the U.S. is admonishing other countries for what it called human rights issues, while keeping mum about its wanton violation of sovereignty and abuses of human rights. This reminds one of a thief crying "Stop the thief!" as this can be committed only by those who are bereft of elementary socio-political and legal awareness.
    The world progressive people are resolutely rebuffing the U.S. doctrine of "human rights" as a doctrine of aggression and a means for domination.
    The U.S. hue and cry over human rights issues will only precipitate its isolation and self-destruction.

Truth behind False Report about "Experiment of Chem. Weapons on Human Bodies" in DPRK Disclosed

    Pyongyang, March 30 (KCNA) -- Kang Pyong Sop and his family who are makers of false documents about the "experiment of chemical weapons on human bodies" in the DPRK called a press conference at the People's Palace of Culture here Tuesday to clarify the truth behind the false report about this experiment in the DPRK released by media of south Korea and the West. He said:
    There are five members in my family including myself, my wife, two sons and a daughter who is married.
    The documents on "experiment of chemical weapons on human bodies" widely misused by enemies were false documents fabricated by my first son Kang Song Guk, who defected to the south seven years ago, and my family, he said, disclosing the truth of the case before Korean and foreign journalists as the maker, observer and witness of those false documents.
    He continued:
    We received messages from our first son on several occasions, saying that he had caused many troubles to his parents and requesting us to meet him in China so that he could give us some money. So I crossed the border illegally with my wife on the 29th of August last year and met him in Yanji. And in early November I met my second son Song Hak there, too.
    Song Guk said to his parents that if they would say that they had brought important information about "the experiment of chemical weapons on human bodies" at a workshop in the February 8 Vinalon Complex where his father works, they would be given a huge sum of money by human rights organizations in the south.
    When I said the production of chemical weapons was unthinkable at my complex, my son told me that he would prepare documents, insisting that those human rights organizations in the south would simply believe that the complex is a chemical factory and may produce such things.
    Then Song Guk took several papers out of a cardboard box on which such letters as "Certificate of Transfer", "name, sex, date of birth", "place of birth" and "place of residence" are printed.
    Then he asked me to recall the names of those who died in one or two years back.
    We wrote the name of Rim Chun Hwa, elder maternal cousin, on one paper. He worked as a farmer in Sinhung County, South Hamgyong Province and died of an illness. Names of four more people were written on separate papers though we knew nothing of them.
    I told my son Song Guk that "songmyong" and "saengnyonwolil" (which means 'name' and 'date of birth' in the Korean translation of old Chinese characters) are not used in documents in the DPRK but 'irum' and 'nannal' (which means the same, but is a pure Korean language) are used. When I told him what was the use of making such false documents, he reproached me instead, saying that he would take care of everything.
    He said that his handwriting would not do because they would easily recognize it. Then he asked me to write a few letters. As my handwriting looked bad, he asked his brother Song Hak, a university graduate, to copy it from a draft paper. He then took out a seal and an ink-pad from a box and stamped the false documents with a seal.
    When seeing that seal, I knew that the seal was a fake because the national emblem on the seal was not real. The mountain above the hydro-power station was not Mt. Paektu, but an ordinary mountain and there was only a dam without any generating house beside it.
    This is the real story about how false documents about the "experiment of chemical weapons on human bodies" which we have never witnessed or heard of and which has never taken place came into being and were delivered to the south by Song Guk.
    The fabrication of false documents was, in the long run, a criminal act that tarnished the image of the dignified DPRK.
    Kang Song Hak, who had been enticed into writing out the false documents, said:
    My brother said that we were doing it to make a large sum of money. But I think that it was a political farce orchestrated before we went to China.
    My brother was idle from his early years and did not like to study at all. It is hard to believe that such false documents were invented by my brother's head.
    I think that my brother was allured by some agents who sought to isolate and stifle the DPRK and tempted us to fabricate the false documents about the non-existent "experiment of chemical weapons on human bodies".
    Speaking of how the false documents were written, Song Hak said in the "certificate of transfer" in the name of Rim Chun Hwa, he put Rim's place of birth as "Huinsil-dong, Sapho District, Hungnam City, South Hamgyong Province." But Sapho District is in Hamhung City, not Hungnam City. As I filled in what my elder brother dictated, I wrote down a wrong name which hardly be found among the administrative districts of the DPRK.
    My elder brother waited for the sealed space of the papers to get completely dry before crumpling them and putting them in water.
    Then he took out and spread all the papers before drying them again. When I asked him why he was doing like that, he answered it was necessary to make any examiner to take them for real, not for false ones.
    This was how I wrote the horrifying false documents on the DPRK's alleged "experiment of chemical weapons on human bodies" the kind of which the Nazi Germany committed against POWs during World War II and which I had only seen in movies.
    Kang Song Hak then showed his handwriting to the journalists.
    Daughter Kang Hye Yong said:
    My motherland showed leniency to my family for our frank confession of crimes, and allowed us to live together as before after we returned home. I've been hearing about and experiencing the benevolent and all-embracing politics of the Workers' Party of Korea and the Government of the DPRK time and again but I've never felt it so keenly and deeply as now.
    I curse my eldest brother Kang Song Guk who betrayed not only his own family but his own motherland. I also hate those who instigated him to drive our family into such an abyss of sin.
    Kang Pyong Sop's family asked journalists to disclose the truth of the mean trick of those trying to slander our dignified DPRK to the whole world.

National Meeting of Active Sportspersons Held

    Pyongyang, March 30 (KCNA) -- A national meeting of active sportspersons was held at the People's Palace of Culture on Monday. Mun Jae Dok, chairman of the Physical Culture and Sports Guidance Commission, made a report at the meeting, which was followed by speeches.
    The reporter and speakers stressed the need to dynamically conduct an educational work among the sports officials and sportspersons to strengthen the single-hearted unity its centre being the headquarters of the revolution and firmly prepare themselves to be the fighters who defend the leader at the cost of their lives by making the Songun idea their faith and part of their life and soul and devotedly carrying out the sports policy of the Workers' Party of Korea.
    The sports guidance organs and the officials in charge of sports technique should work out correct plans to develop the sports technique in football, marathon, basketball, volleyball, shooting, boxing, weightlifting, wrestling, judo and gymnastics on a priority basis and, at the same time, bring the technique in other events on a par with it and conduct a dynamic drive to carry them out and thus register spectacular successes in all international games, they noted, and went on:
    Sportspersons should intensify training and improve the technique and set records in each game through an ideological campaign, a fighting spirit battle and speed and technique campaigns, the principle of competing of our style.
    The working people's organizations, educational institutions and non-permanent sports committees at all levels should continue exerting big efforts to develop school sports, conduct a brisk mass sports with main stress on the national defence sports among the working people and thus carry through the Party's policy on popularizing the sports and making it their daily routine.
    Present at the meeting were Kim Jung Rin, secretary of the Central Committee of the WPK, and Kwak Pom Gi, vice-premier of the Cabinet.

Separated Families and Relatives Meet

    Mt. Kumgang Resort, March 30 (KCNA) -- The 9th reunion of separated families and relatives began at Mt. Kumgang Resort. Separated families and relatives of the north side had a collective meeting with those of the south side yesterday according to the agreement between the Red Cross organizations of both sides.
    When meeting, they hugged each other to share warm greetings and regards with kindred feelings.
    Families and relatives of the north ardently called on their kindred from the south to rise up in the patriotic way for national reunification under the uplifted banner of the June 15 joint declaration, saying that the Korean nation can reunite its severed ties and achieve co-prosperity only when they pool their efforts by themselves.
    Families and relatives of the north side had a family meeting each with their kindred from the south and shared their retrospection in a harmonious atmosphere today.
    Meanwhile, the Central Committee of the Red Cross Society of the north side arranged a reception for the separated families and relatives of both sides.
    They looked round Lagoon Samil, a scenic spot.
    The reunion continues.

DPRK Supports "One China" Policy

    Pyongyang, March 30 (KCNA) -- The DPRK has opposed all separatist moves to change the present status of Taiwan and consistently supported the Chinese people in their efforts to reunify the country according to "One China Policy" and the policy of "peaceful reunification, one country and two systems." A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry said this answering a question put by KCNA Tuesday as regards the complicated situation in Taiwan.
    He said:
    The results of "the presidential election" held in Taiwan on March 20 sparked ceaseless serious controversy and strong protests and created great social chaos and uneasiness.
    We are closely following this.
    The government of the People's Republic of China is the only legitimate government representing the whole of China and Taiwan is an inalienable part of the territory of China, irrespective of the election results.

U.S. Warhawks' Projected Deployment of Aegis in East Sea of Korea Flayed

    Pyongyang, March 30 (KCNA) -- The Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland in its information bulletin No. 864 on Tuesday bitterly denounced the U.S. warhawks's adventurous moves to deploy uptodate Aegis as a vicious challenge to the unanimous aspiration and desire of all the Koreans for peace of the country and its peaceful reunification and an open military provocation to the DPRK. The information bulletin said:
    Recently the U.S. announced that it would keep latest type destroyer Aegis equipped with uptodate missile interceptor system in the East Sea of Korea on a permanent basis from September under the pretext of coping with the "ballistic missile attack" from someone.
    This clearly indicates that the U.S. war scenario against the DPRK is being put into practice in real earnest at a final phase as it is a dangerous military provocation leading the situation on the Korean peninsula and in the region to the worst phase.
    As this move has brought the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK aimed to stifle it by force of arms into bolder relief, the DPRK is left with no other option but to take a self-defensive step to cope with it.
    Strength is not a monopoly of the United States. It should act with discretion, clearly seeing who its opponent is, withdraw its aggression forces from the Korean peninsula at an early date and stop at once its moves to unleash a war against the DPRK.

Delegado de RPDC requiere a Japon liquidacion de pasado lleno de crimen

    Pyongyang, 30 de marzo (ATCC) -- Requerimos que Japon se desvie de su idea anacronica de repugnancia a otras naciones y de confrontacion y pague cuanto antes por sus crimenes pasados manchados por la sangre de otras naciones. Asi senalo el delegado de la Republica Popular Democratica de Corea durante la discusion del sexto articulo "Discriminacion racial" de la agenda de la 60 conferencia de la Comision de Derechos Humanos de la ONU, celebrada el dia 22 en Ginebra, y subrayo:
    La causa fundamental de su mantenimiento actual a los crimenes antieticos, la injusticia y los actos inmorales se debe a la carencia de la liquidacion estricta por la injusticia pasada, el reconocimiento del culpable por la responsabilidad legal, la peticion de disculpa, el castigo y la indemnizacion.
    Hoy en dia, los coreanos residentes en Japon son objetos de abiertos actos violentos, lo cual es de la responsabilidad total de las autoridades japonesas, que en vez de encontrar las lecciones en su pasado lleno de crimenes, lo camuflan y lo justifican.
    Durante su agresion militar y mas de 40 anos de su ocupacion en Corea, Japon realizo la politica brutalisima de exterminio a la nacion coreana.
    A pesar de ello, este pais isleno no va a reconocer sinceramente su responsabilidad legal y pedir disculpa por sus crimenes, sino fomenta entre las nuevas generaciones la capacidad de venganza espiritual, a traves de la visita del gobernante supremo al "Santuario Yasukuni", la justificacion intencional a los crimenes pasados y el disparate de inculcacion a la repugnancia a otras naciones de los ministros de alto nivel y otros politicos, y la educacion de la historia tergiversada.
    En el fondo de su obstinada politica hostil a Corea, incluso el establecimiento sucesivo de las leyes de sanciones contra la RPDC, estan ocultados el desprecio y la repugnancia a otras naciones.
