Rodong Sinmun Accuses Japan of Its Base Act
| Pyongyang, January 8 (KCNA) -- Recently the new Japanese government decided to postpone the application to Korean schools of tuition-free program for senior high schools.
Rodong Sinmun Tuesday says in a bylined commentary in this regard:
This is a base and infantile act of those steeped in enmity against the DPRK and national chauvinism to the marrow of their bones.
Korean schools are attended by descendants of Koreans, who were taken to Japan and subject to death and hard work during the harsh colonial rule by the Japanese imperialists in the past.
In light of moral obligation the Japanese authorities have the due responsibility for guaranteeing Korean students in Japan the right to democratic national education.
The Japanese reactionaries, however, are rubbing salt into the unhealed wound of the Korean people, while continuing the hostile policy toward the DPRK, far from redressing the past crimes.
Their vicious act goes against humanity and is a breach of international law as it is aimed to imbue Japanese society with the anti-DPRK sentiment and make children of Koreans victims to the unreasonable politically-motivated suppression.
No country in the world acts so disgracefully and despicably as Japan, which regards money as a means for a political bargaining.
It is Japan that went so impudent as to covet for the permanent membership of the UNSC while showing its bulgy moneybag off in the past. It is also Japan that worked hard to pull down with money a monument to sexual slavery erected in a U.S. street. That is why Japan is acting sordidly with money, regarding Korean schools as the target of its hostile policy toward the DPRK.
The Japanese authorities are resorting to such base act as offering Korean schools as victims to national chauvinism, far from honestly admitting and making apology and reparation for the past wrongs. This is an act of adding new crimes to the past ones.
