S. Korea's Total Drop of Their Policy of Confrontation with DPRK Demanded
Pyongyang, June 11 (KCNA) -- Members of civic and public organizations of south Korea held a press conference in Seoul on June 7 at which they demanded a drop of policy of confrontation with the DPRK.

Speakers at the press conference said that the recent disclosure of the secret contact made between the south and the north in Beijing brought to light that the Lee Myung Bak "government" is working hard to use the talks with the north for its political purpose.

The Lee "government" doesn't know about the north at all, they noted, strongly urging it to completely roll back the above-said policy and make a switchover to south-north reconciliation.

They demanded an immediate dismissal of Hyon In Thaek, minister of Unification, Kim Thae Hyo, presidential secretary for Foreign Strategy of the Chongwadae Secretariat, Chon Yong U, chief secretary for Diplomacy and Security of Chongwadae, and other ultra conservatives who are taking the lead in escalating confrontation with fellow countrymen.

The authorities should not disallow NGOs to participate in the event marking the 11th anniversary of the June 15 joint declaration to be held in Kaesong, they urged.

If the authorities stick to the above-said policy to the last, ignoring the demand of the people, they will surely face ruin, the speakers warned.

At the end of the press conference, they handed a written protest addressed to traitor Lee Myung Bak to Chongwadae.
