June 15 Joint Declaration Praised as Signpost of National Reunification
Pyongyang, June 13 (KCNA) -- Jo Il Min, chief of the Pyongyang Mission of the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front, was interviewed Saturday on the occasion of the 9th anniversary of the publication of the June 15 joint declaration.

Jo in the interview said that the publication of the June 15 joint declaration provided the banner giving impetus to the reunification movement in the idea of "By our nation itself."

The Korean nation has dynamically waged the struggle for reunification under the uplifted banner of the June 15 joint declaration, he said, adding:

This is entirely the noble fruition of the outstanding and seasoned leadership provided by Kim Jong Il with noble patriotic intention.

The mindset of the south Korean people boundlessly revering Kim Jong Il, legendary great man and peerless patriot, has culminated in the hot wind of revering him and defending and supporting his Songun politics.

The south Korean people has advanced along the road of independent reunification under the banner of the June 15 joint declaration with reverence for him.

They are waging intensive struggle against the U.S. imperialists and the Lee Myung Bak group trying to bring back the fascist dictatorial rule and escalating inter-Korean confrontation and tension, holding high the slogans of independence, democracy and reunification.

No desperate moves of the anti-reunification forces at home and abroad can undermine the validity and unbreakable vitality of the joint declaration nor can they dampen the will of the Korean compatriots to firmly adhere to and implement the joint declaration.

Thanks to the June 15 joint declaration, signpost of national reunification, the independent reunification is sure to be achieved.
