The meeting discussed an issue of opening a landmark phase for independent reunification this year.
Kim Ryong Song, chairman of the North Side Committee for Implementing the June 15 Joint Declaration, in his report said that leader Kim Jong Il's history of his leadership for national reunification was a glorious revolutionary history recorded with immortal exploits, adding that the north and the south could greet a new era of independent reunification thanks to north-south summits and the June 15 joint declaration.
