Korean People's Cause of Justice Supported in Syria
Pyongyang, January 4 (KCNA) -- Syria supports the Korean people's cause of justice.

Saaeed Eleia Dawood, director of the Organizational Department of the Regional Leadership of Syria's Baath Arab Socialist Party, stressed this on December 23 last year when he met Choe Su Hon, DPRK ambassador to his country.

He, chairman of the Syrian Arab-Korea Friendship Association, noted that the friendly and cooperative relations between the peoples of the two countries are favorably developing day by day under the guidance of General Secretary Kim Jong Il and President Bashar Al-Assad.

He further said:

The Syrian people will always support the Korean people in their struggle against the maneuvers of the U.S.

The recent joint military exercises staged by the U.S. and the south Korean authorities in the West Sea of Korea are a provocation to the DPRK.

The will of the Korean people to defend the sovereignty of the country is more powerful than any weapon, and any sanctions and blockade will become impotent before it.

It is a very urgent task and demand of the international community to achieve peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula.
