Romanian Political Figure Denounces Japanese Authorities for Its Moves to Seize Korean Hall
Pyongyang, April 11 (KCNA) -- Vasile Orleanu, chairman of the Supreme Council of the Socialist Party of Romania, issued a statement on April 1 in denunciation of Japan's moves to seize the Korean Hall of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon).

He said:

The Supreme Council of the Socialist Party of Romania demands the Japanese authorities roll back at once their recent unreasonable decision on allowing the sale of the land and building of the Korean Hall of Chongryon.

Their decision is a wanton violation of the dignity and vital rights of Chongryon and Koreans in Japan and a serious encroachment upon and challenge to the sovereignty of the DPRK.

The Supreme Council and all members of the Socialist Party of Romania once again urge the Japanese authorities to immediately roll back their policy of discrimination against Koreans in Japan and ensure their democratic national rights.

The world progressive humankind stands by the just Korean people.

We strongly demand the Japanese authorities face up to the trend of times and behave with discretion.
