Chongryon Slashes S. Korean Confrontation with DPRK
Pyongyang, May 22 (KCNA) -- Officials of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) released statements on May 19 in denunciation of the south Korean puppet authorities' evermore undisguised confrontation with the DPRK.

Ri Han Su, chairman of the Association for the Peaceful Reunification of Korean Residents in Japan, deplored the miserable reality of south Korea in which the nation's landmark of reunification and the programme for putting it into practice are violated and only a whirlwind of confrontation holds sway.

The association will boost solidarity and alliance with the north, the south and abroad in the idea of "By our nation itself" and thus make a tangible contribution to opening up a new phase of national reunification this year marking the 10th anniversary of the publication of the June 15 joint declaration, he stressed.

Pak Chang Gil, chairman of the Tokyo Metropolitan Headquarters of Chongryon, held that the group of traitors' acts of rushing headlong into confrontation and war, totally while crying out for "not ruling out a war" after totally freezing the inter-Korean relations are nothing but the deathbed frenzy of the maniacs to get out of a predicament.

Kang Chu Ryon, chairperson of the Central Standing Committee of the Union of Democratic Korean Women in Japan, declared that the union would never tolerate such treacherous and anti-reunification actions of the south Korean ruling forces as standing in the way of reconciliation, unity and cooperation between the north and the south.

Choe Song Yong, chairman of the Central Standing Committee of the Korean Youth League in Japan, expressed the will to achieve the solidarity and alliance with all the youths and students at home and abroad to frustrate the treacherous, anti-reunification and undemocratic moves of the south Korean puppet conservative group and take the lead in ushering in a heyday of the movement for national unity and reunification.
