S. Korea Urged to Drop Old Way of Thinking: Statement
Pyongyang, March 28 (KCNA) -- The Society for Cooperation among Koreans in Germany made public a statement titled "Let us drop old way of thinking of distrust and confrontation and open up a new era of reconciliation and co-existence in spirit of By Our Nation Itself" on March 20.

The statement said:

The climate for reconciliation and peace was created on the Korean peninsula and a new era of reunification started after the joint declarations were adopted between the north and the south. However, the pro-U.S. regime came to power in south Korea, bringing the situation to confrontation again.

From the outset of the year the north side called for paving a wide avenue for improved inter-Korean relations by concerted efforts of Koreans.

The north and the south agreed to stop slandering each other, but conservative media in south Korea are making false reports against the north and the south side is scattering anti-DPRK leaflets.

The statement demanded the south side have candid dialogue with the north and stop slandering and all war drills for aggression against the north.
