Chongryon Supports Statement of KPA Supreme Command
| Pyongyang, March 11 (KCNA) -- Nam Sung U, vice-chairman of the Central Standing Committee of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon), issued a statement on Mar. 8 in support of the statement issued by a spokesman for the Supreme Command of the Korean People's Army (KPA).
The statement fully reflects the unshakable faith of the people in the homeland to protect their independent dignity to the last and settle accounts with those seeking to hurt it through tougher counteractions, the statement said, adding:
The anti-DPRK actions of the U.S. and its followers have reached an extreme phase.
They kicked off at last Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises to stifle the DPRK on March 1 despite the strong protest and condemnation at home and abroad.
The important measures taken by the DPRK are entirely just countermeasures to safeguard the sovereignty of the nation and supreme interests of the country.
What touches off towering national indignation among the Koreans in Japan is the reckless remarks made by the south Korean puppet forces steeped in submission and sycophancy towards the U.S., the statement noted, blasting them for crying out for "striking at the base of provocation" and "pre-emptive attack," leading the situation to a war of aggression against the DPRK.
It went on:
How can we remain a passive onlooker to such situation that the national sovereignty and dignity are being infringed upon and the supreme interests of the country threatened by the group of traitors, lackeys of the U.S.?
Chongryon and Koreans in Japan are more keenly aware than anybody else that independence is what keeps nation alive and the happiness and future of the overseas compatriots are guaranteed by the prosperity of the DPRK which has won victories and demonstrated its dignity thanks to independence.
Firmly convinced that a final victory is in store for the Korean people led by the dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un, they will resolutely safeguard the national sovereignty and the country's supreme dignity.
