Japan Denounced for Its Moves to Seize Korean Hall of Chongryon
Pyongyang, April 10 (KCNA) -- Bulgarian and Bangladeshi organizations issued statements condemning the Japanese authorities for their moves to seize the Korean Hall of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) on April 4.

The Bulgaria-Korea Friendship Association said:

The Japanese authorities have cracked down on Chongryon and on Mar. 24 prodded the Tokyo District Court to make an illegal decision on allowing the sale of the land and building of the Korean Hall of Chongryon.

The Japanese authorities should bear in mind that the DPRK is a socialist power.

We bitterly denounce the Japanese authorities for their moves to seize the base of Chongryon's activities, weaken its authority and stamp out the movement of Koreans in Japan.

The Bangladesh Group for the Study of the Songun Policy noted:

Such act of the Japanese authorities is a wanton violation of the dignity and vital rights of Chongryon and Koreans in Japan and a grave encroachment on the sovereignty of the DPRK.

We resolutely condemn such an act and strongly demand the Japanese authorities stop it at once.
