Japanese Reactionaries' Anti-DPRK Racket Slammed
| Pyongyang, February 18 (KCNA) -- The Japanese reactionaries have become all the more desperate in kicking up confrontation with the DPRK after it conducted the third underground nuclear test for self-defence.
No sooner had the nuclear test been conducted than the Japanese conservative government loudly called for additional "sanctions" and Japan's own "sanctions", while asserting the need to "step up pressure".
Japanese Prime Minister Abe issued a "statement" the same day. In the statement he said that vice-chairmen of the Central Standing Committee of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) will not be allowed to reenter Japan in case they leave it for the purpose of making visits to the DPRK.
Timed to coincide with this, the payment of grants-in-aid for Korean schools in different parts of Japan including Kanagawa and Saitama Prefectures was suspended.
Gangsters of ultra-right conservative organizations flocked to the Central Hall of Chongryon and went on the rampage, shouting "Koreans go out of Japan."
On February 14, the government prodded police to arrest Kang Jong Bu of Kyoto Prefecture of Chongryon on charges of violation of "foreign currency law."
So sordid and horrible is the Japanese reactionaries' racket for confrontation with the DPRK.
Historically, whenever the DPRK's might was displayed, the Japanese reactionaries have persistently resorted to the moves to stamp out Chongryon, while raising "abduction issue", etc.
The moves to stamp out Chongryon has become all the pronounced after the Abe regime took office in September 2006, in particular.
The Japanese reactionaries totally banned entry into Japanese ports of DPRK-flagged ships and enforced total prohibition of export to and import from the DPRK, ban on entry into Japan of any one with DPRK nationality and total suspension of visits of personnel and exchange of goods and money as part of Japan's own "sanctions" against the DPRK.
Japan has intensified the moves to seize the building of Chongryon and extended the embargo of ship Mangyongbong-92 and carried out a series of search into Chongryon institutions.
The Japanese reactionaries' racket for "sanctions" against the DPRK and the moves to stamp out Chongryon have become all the more pronounced after Abe took power at the end of last year.
The Japanese conservative government will certainly be forced to pay dearly for its hostile act toward the DPRK as it has been engrossed in inhuman acts, far from redressing for the past crimes of inflicting mental and physical pain and sufferings on the Korean nation.
