Officials of Chongryon Call for Restoring June 15 Era of Reunification
Tokyo, June 15 (KNS-KCNA) -- Officials of the organizations of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) released statements to mark the 14th anniversary of the publication of the June 15 joint declaration.

Ri Tong Je, chairman of the Association of Koreans in Japan for Peaceful Reunification, said the June 15 joint declaration is displaying its vitality as a great programme for reunification common to the nation thanks to its validity, adding that it serves as a touchstone distinguishing pro-reunification from anti-reunification.

Kim Cha Dol, chairman of the Central Standing Committee of the Korean Youth League in Japan, said the validity and vitality of the declaration have already been proved by history. All Korean youth and students in Japan will make dynamic efforts to restore the June 15 era by thoroughly implementing the north-south joint declarations, he added.

Ryang Ok Chul, vice-chairwoman of the Central Standing Committee of the Korean Women's Union in Japan, said the resentment at the Park Geun Hye group of south Korea is running high among the Korean women in Japan.

She demanded the south Korean authorities immediately rescind the policy of confrontation with the DPRK and honestly implement the joint declarations.

Kim Jong Su, chairman of the Central Standing Committee of the Union of Korean Writers and Artists in Japan, said the Korean writers and artists in Japan will further intensify their actions to frustrate the confrontation racket kicked up by the Park group against the DPRK and thus open up a new phase of independent reunification, peace and prosperity of the country.

Kim Hwa Hyo, chairperson of the Korean Social Scientists Association in Japan, said all its members would intensify the actions for implementing the joint declarations and thus take the lead in the nation-wide struggle for restoring the June 15 era.
