Imperialist Powers Slammed for Blocking Peace, Reunification of Korea
| Pyongyang, August 26 (KCNA) -- A member of the editorial board of Minjok Thongsin, an internet paper of Koreans in the U.S., in an article on August 22 denounced the imperialist powers for blocking the peace and reunification of the Korean nation.
August 22 is the day when the Japanese imperialists fabricated in a coercive manner the "Korea-Japan Annexation Treaty", the article said.
More than a century has passed since then but Japan is justifying the crimes committed by it against the Korean nation such as denial of its sexual slavery enforced in the past and, at the same time, kicking up a whirlwind of unprecedented suppression of Koreans in Japan while claiming Tok Islets belong to it, it noted.
The U.S. is chiefly to blame for instigating Japan to invade Korea through the "Taft-Katsura Agreement" with Japan in 1905, it said.
It condemned the U.S. for dividing the Korean nation into two and igniting a war against the DPRK on June 25, 1950, killing millions of Koreans.
60 years have passed since the ceasefire but the U.S. is leaving no means untried to keep the Korean nation divided permanently, refusing to sign a peace treaty, it said, and went on:
The U.S. and its allies are blocking the road of reunification, the ardent desire of the Korean nation which had suffered all sorts of misfortune and pain due to outside forces.
Japan should redeem its inglorious past without fail.
All Koreans should turn out in the struggle to force the U.S. roll back its policy of interference and domination over the Korean Peninsula and sign a peace treaty.
They should rise up in the patriotic struggle for reunification, aware that if the June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration are preserved and implemented and the north and the south pool their efforts, this will mean beginning of peaceful reunification and a key to peace and prosperity of the Korean nation.
