CPRK Secretariat Issues White Paper Slamming Lee Group's Treachery
Pyongyang, January 12 (KCNA) -- The Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea issued a white paper Thursday to inform the world of the crimes the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors committed last year by pushing the inter-Korean relations to the lowest ebb out of its hideous crimes perpetrated over the last four years since its seizure of power.

According to it, the group totally denied the DPRK's proposal for inter-Korean dialogue.

On Jan. 5 last year the government, political parties and organizations of the DPRK in a joint statement proposed to the south Korean authorities, political parties and organizations to hold wide-ranging dialogue and negotiations.

The puppet authorities, however, groundlessly spoke ill of the DPRK's proposal for dialogue from the outset, saying "there is no sincerity in it and it is no more than tactics of the united front."

Moreover, they flatly turned down the proposal for dialogue by putting up the "dismantlement of nuclear program" and solution to the "Cheonan" warship case and the Yonphyong issue and other unreasonable issues as preconditions.

They went the lengths of turning their faces away from dialogue, impudently decrying even the authority of their dialogue partner.

After being compelled to appear at the preliminary military talks, they persistently insisted on the solution to the warship sinking case and Yonphyong Island incident, deliberately creating complexity. They did not hesitate to commit such reckless act as unilaterally walking out of the venue of the talks.

The Lee group derailed not only Red Cross talks and contacts between the north and the south for solving humanitarian issues but NGO dialogue.

As a result, all cooperation projects between the north and the south were suspended, leaving many non-governmental businesses in south Korea bankrupt or forcing them to stop their operations. The south Koreans who eked out their living through cooperation projects were put on the crossroads of life and death.

The Lee group made abortive the joint national events slated to take place on the anniversaries of the publication of the historic inter-Korean declarations.

It prevented the Council for the Solution of the Issue of the Volunteers Corps from having communication with the north for discussing a joint declaration of women's organizations in the north and the south to be made public on the anniversary of the March First Popular Uprising. It also disallowed the visit of those concerned of the south side funeral committee to Kaesong to receive a message of condolence sent by the DPRK side on the death of Pak Yong Gil, widow of Rev. Mun Ik Hwan.

The crimes of Lee group are proved by the heinous moves to escalate confrontation with fellow countrymen and anti-DPRK smear campaign.

Last year alone, Lee visited the U.S. several times to beg for support to his confrontation policy and openly let loose such reckless remarks that his north policy would remain unchanged despite domestic and foreign criticism.

The group imposed a heavy penalty upon Rev. Han Sang Ryol on charge of violation of the "National Security Law" after keeping him behind bars for more than a year and suppressed the Youth and Students Solidarity for Implementing the June 15 Joint Declaration and other organizations in south Korea after labeling them as "enemy benefiting organizations".

The group of traitors disconnected more than 90 internet websites branding them as "pro-north ones" and deleted at least 80 000 notices and arrested all those concerned last year.

They kicked off anti-DPRK plots ceaselessly including spy-ring case and incident of assassination group, infusing confrontation atmosphere.

The Lee group's confrontation moves were at maximum late in December last year when the nation suffered the greatest loss.

No sooner had the sad news of the great loss to the nation been released than the group of puppets convened a "state security meeting" and "emergency state affairs meeting" and put Chongwadae and Administration, puppet army and police on "emergency alert guard and duty" leveling the gun at the fellow countrymen shedding tears in great grief. They dared foolishly try to break the single-minded unity of the DPRK talking about "taking counteraction by separating inhabitants from their leadership".

The south Korean authorities and the group of the "Grand National Party" desperately slandered and insulted pictures of the people in the north expressing condolences and totally banned the Pyongyang visits of south Korean opposition parties and organizations of different social standings. Even the south Korean puppet group brutally suppressed south Korean youths and students and civic organizations for expressing condolences in the incense-burning altars installed by themselves.

They let over 30 right-wing conservative organizations flock to the forefront areas along the military demarcation line to scatter anti-DPRK leaflets whose content was hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK and inciting disturbance on the day of bidding last farewell.

Another crime is that the group of traitors escalated the reckless confrontation and war moves.

Last year the group created the crisis of grave military clashes and seriously endangered the peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula and the region.

It committed such unprecedentedly hideous provocations as daringly insulting the supreme leadership of the DPRK one after another last year.

All the facts show that the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors is the number one group of maniacs keen on confrontation and war, the white paper said, warning that the group will face only merciless punishment.
