North, South and Overseas Organizations Call for Opening New Era of Independent Reunification, Peace and Prosperity
| Pyongyang, October 4 (KCNA) -- The North, South and Overseas Side Committees for Implementing the June 15 Joint Declaration Thursday released an appeal to all Koreans at home and abroad on the occasion of the 5th anniversary of the October 4 declaration.
The declaration which clearly indicates practical ways for the country's peace, independent reunification and common prosperity is a precious fruition common to the nation which all Koreans achieved in the grand advance toward national reunification, the appeal said.
The adoption of the declaration opened a new broad avenue for putting an end to military standoff between the north and south and achieving peace and bringing earlier independent reunification, it noted.
However, this fruition was downplayed, the inter-Korean relations faced bankruptcy and a touch-and-go situation is prevailing in the Korean peninsula due to the moves of anti-reunification forces.
The North, South and Overseas Side Committees for Implementing June 15 Joint Declaration appeal as follows to all Koreans at home and abroad out of unanimous mind to open a new phase for national reunification in line with the inter-Korean declarations:
Let all Koreans at home and abroad pool intention, efforts and wisdom to implement the north-south joint declarations!
Let's pull down all barriers standing in the way of visits and exchange between NGOs and activate contacts and dialogues among people from all walks of life!
Let's resolutely oppose all forms of joint military exercises and arms buildup which escalate distrust and hostility among fellow countrymen and threaten wellbeing of Koreans and peace on this land.
Let's dynamically fight to remove the source of war and establish permanent peace mechanism on this land!
Let's activate solidarity movement among organizations of different strata and fields in all regions in the north and the south and further enhance the role of the All-Korean Committee for Implementation of June 15 Joint Declaration!
Let's fully display enthusiasm and make concerted efforts to open a new era of independent reunification, peace and prosperity!
