Korean People's Struggle Supported in Different Countries
Pyongyang, July 31 (KCNA) -- Nepalese organizations including the Nepal-Korea Friendship Association, the Nepal Institute for the Juche Studies and the Nepalese Committee for Supporting the Reunification of Korea issued a joint statement on July 21 on the occasion of the June 25-July 27 month of anti-U.S. joint struggle.

The statement said that independent, progressive and peace-loving countries are extending solidarity to the Korean people in their just struggle to achieve the independent and peaceful reunification of the country and build a great prosperous powerful socialist nation.

Watching the recent deteriorating situation on the Korean Peninsula with serious concern, we urge the United States to abandon its hostile policy toward the DPRK, the statement noted, and continued:

We also demand that the issue of Korea be settled in line with the resolution of the 30th UN General Assembly which calls for the dismantlement of the "UN Command" in south Korea and the withdrawal of all foreign forces from south Korea and the reunification of Korea be achieved without delay in the spirit of the historic June 15 North-South Joint Declaration and the October 4 declaration on the three principles of national reunification.

The Colombia-Korea Association of Friendship and Culture published a bulletin titled "War Crimes to Be Judged at Any Cost" on July 23.

Articles of the bulletin cited facts that the U.S. imperialists perpetrated indiscriminate air raids during the Korean War from 1950 to 1953, destroying every building including schools and hospitals and brutally killing civilians.

The fact-finding groups of the International Federation of Democratic Women and the International Association of Democratic Lawyers in their reports on the investigation conducted during the Korean War said what happened in Korea was not a war but crimes, the bulletin said.

 It recalled that the Pyongyang International Tribunal on U.S. crimes committed in Korea held in July 2003 staged a trial of U.S. senior government officials including successive presidents, secretaries of state and defense, commanders of the U.S. forces in south Korea, the perpetrators of the crimes and their conspirators in their absence and gave them a verdict of guilty.

The Colombian Kanggye Group for the Study of the Juche Idea also issued a bulletin on July 22 which dealt in detail with the great losses suffered by the U.S. imperialists during the Korean War and urged the United States not to forget the lesson drawn from their defeat 56 years ago.

The director for Political Affairs and International Relations of the Pan-African Movement and the secretary general of the Egyptian Orgaisation of the Afro-Asian People's Solidarity separately issued statements on July 15 and 21.
