S. Korea's Anti-DPRK Smear Campaign Flailed
Pyongyang, June 19 (KCNA) -- The World Federation of Democratic Youth released a statement on May 28 denouncing the south Korean authorities' anti-DPRK smear campaign over "Cheonan" case.

The authorities' assertion that warship "Cheonan" was sunk by "a torpedo attack" of the DPRK renders the regional situation tenser, the statement said, and went on:

The "investigation results" were not based on scientific facts and were cooked up by the ultra-right conservative forces of south Korea opposed to their fellow countrymen.

Urging the south Korean authorities to receive an inspection group of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, the statement continued:

WFDY has always supported peace and stability.

Therefore, we reject any "solution" or assertion calling for "retaliation" and "punishment".

The federation stands for reunification and peace of the Korean Peninsula.

It supports the DPRK's policy to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula and defend regional peace and stability. It will not tolerate any slightest act of infringing upon the sovereignty and the right to existence of the Korean people.
