Rodong Sinmun Brands "Dresden Declaration" as Anti-reunification Declaration
Pyongyang, April 24 (KCNA) -- "Dresden Declaration" raised by south Korean chief executive Park Geun Hye is a confrontational declaration flouting the nation's desire for reunification, says Rodong Sinmun Thursday in an article.

The declaration is a traitorous one bereft of the patriotic spirit and stand and an anti-reunification declaration that deteriorates the north-south relations and escalates distrust and confrontation between the fellow countrymen, the article says, and goes on:

The declaration called for "settling humanitarian issues", "laying groundwork for improving the livelihood of the people for common prosperity" and "recovering homogeneity" as its main content.

National independence is an immutable principle that can never be compromised in settling the reunification issue.

The June 15 reunification era showed that it is possible to improve the north-south relations and open up a wide avenue for peace and reunification only when all the Koreans reject outsiders and pool their efforts.

To cry out for "humanitarian issues", "common prosperity" and "recovery of homogeneity", away from the principle of independence and the stand of By Our Nation Itself, is just a deception to win popularity under the spurious signboard of "unification".

Are the north-south relations not improving because there are no "reunions" or "nutritional aid"?

What the puppet forces seek is to undermine the ideology in the DPRK and bring down its social system under the signboard of "common prosperity" and "exchanges".

The south Korean authorities' foolish act of abusing man's noble kindred feelings for escalating confrontation and revealing their despicable wild ambition for "unification of systems" will only foment discord and distrust among fellow countrymen and escalate confrontation.

If they honestly want to offer new proposals, they should present ways for respecting and implementing north-south declarations in which the north and the south promised to settle the issue of the country's reunification by Our Nation Itself. Any acts contrary to this can never evade the curse and denunciation by the nation as an anti-reunification act.
