Pomminryon Calls for Opening New Phase of Independent Reunification
Pyongyang, April 18 (KCNA) -- The North, South and Overseas Headquarters of the Pan-national Alliance for Korea's Reunification (Pomminryon) made public a joint statement on Monday on the occasion of the 63rd anniversary of the historic April north-south joint conference.

The statement recalled that along with the April 3 resistance the joint conference gave rein to the efforts of the nation to frustrate the U.S. moves for domination over Korea and dealt a heavy blow to the south Korean authorities' attempt to stage "separate elections" and establish a "separate government" in south Korea.

The joint conference is putting spurs to the June 15 era of reunification, arousing the aspiration of all the fellow countrymen after reunification and their enthusiasm for great unity even now, it said, and went on:

It is the spirit of the joint conference that if the nation is to seek a way for independence, peace, reunification and prosperity, Koreans should pool their efforts with the patriotic will irrespective of ideology and ism.

The U.S. and the Lee Myung Bak "government" are bringing the danger of war, while threatening the national reconciliation and peace and pursuing a policy hostile towards the DPRK.

The outdated policy and attitude should be dropped to begin a new dialogue and open a new phase.

Dialogue should be resumed in the direction of implementing the June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration.

At the outset of the year the DPRK put forward a proposal for discussing all the issues related to the important issues of the nation and solving them and significantly improving the north-south relations.

The Lee Myung Bak "government" should come out for dialogue without delay.

The statement called on all the Koreans to pool efforts for implementing the north-south joint declarations and opening a new phase of independent reunification under the banner of "By our nation itself".
