Pakistani, Ethiopian Bodies Condemn Japan's Anti-Chongryon Campaign
Pyongyang, April 10 (KCNA) -- Pakistani and Ethiopian bodies issued statements denouncing the Japanese authorities' campaign against the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) on Mar. 28 and April 1.

The Pakistan Labour Federation said:

On Mar. 24 the Japanese authorities 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.

They are working hard to evade the responsibility for it, saying that it was the "judgment of a judicial organ".

They are seeking a vicious political purpose to seizing the base for activities of the Chongryon Central Standing Committee and thus weaken the authority of Chongryon and stamp out the movement of Koreans in Japan.

If they persist in their moves to seize the Korean Hall of Chongryon despite the repeated warnings of the DPRK, they will be wholly responsible for the ensuing consequences.

The Ethiopian Youth Study Group of the Juche Idea said:

We can not repress the surging indignation at the Japanese authorities' moves to seize the Korean Hall of Chongryon.

All facts go to prove how persistently the Japanese authorities are trying to stamp out Chongryon.

We strongly demand them stop such a base act at once.
