Earlier National Reunification Called for
Pyongyang, December 7 (KCNA) -- National reunification is the task of the times the fulfillment of which brooks not a moment's delay and it is the duty which should be performed by the present generation under any circumstances, says Rodong Sinmun Monday in a signed article.

It goes on:

The country's reunification is a sacred cause of bringing about a future when the nation will enjoy eternal prosperity and enabling the younger generation to enjoy happiness and prosperity.

If the Koreans fail to reunify their country in the present generation and allow its division to go on, the generations to come will be subject to misfortune and sufferings in the country divided into the north and the south, making them behave like strangers.

The national split is a source of great misfortune for the younger generation, the future and hope of the country.

The Koreans should never allow themselves to hand down to the next generation the nation's task of the country's reunification.

If the country's reunification is passed on the next generation again, this will mean the present generation committing grave crimes against history and the nation.

Both Korea and its nation are one. The division of the Korean nation constitutes temporary twists and turns and misfortune in its history spanning 5,000 years.

Whoever with the blood and soul of the Korean nation should vigorously turn out in the nation-wide reunification movement for reunifying the country in the present generation without fail in order to leave a tangible trace of patriotism to be remembered by history and posterity.

It is the unanimous desire of the whole nation to proudly live as a reunited nation in the reunified country and it is an inevitable trend of the nation's history to work for the country's reunification.
