Russian, Belorussian Bodies Urge Japan to Stop Suppression of Chongryon
| Pyongyang, April 8 (KCNA) -- Russian and Belorussian organizations issued statements condemning Japan's suppression of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) on Mar. 31 and April 1.
The Russian Association for Friendship and Cultural Cooperation with the DPRK said:
We denounce the Japanese reactionaries' moves to seize the Korean Hall of Chongryon as part of a campaign against the Koreans in Japan.
This shows once again that the present ruling quarters of Japan have a completely wrong understanding of the issue of history.
Japan's reckless politics in the last century led it a complete ruin and inflicted unspeakable sufferings upon the peoples of Northeast Asia.
It is crystal clear that the U.S. is wire-pulling Japan behind the scene as its master.
We strongly demand Japan stop such suppression at once.
The Belarus-DPRK National Friend Association Named after Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il said:
The Japanese authorities are persisting in their suppression of Chongryon.
The Japanese authorities' suppression of Chongryon is a challenge not only to the Korean people and the Japanese but all other peoples of the world.
We demand the Japanese authorities halt their suppression of Chongryon.
