14th Anniversary of June 15 Joint Declaration Observed by Koreans in Europe
Pyongyang, June 17 (KCNA) -- The European Regional Committee of the Overseas Side Committee for Implementing the June 15 Joint Declaration held a meeting in Germany on June 14, a day before the 14th anniversary of the June 15 joint declaration, according to Minjok Thongsin, an internet paper of Koreans in the U.S.

Ri Ji Suk, permanent representative of the European Regional Committee, in an opening address said the only way of the Korean nation is to implement the June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration.

Rim Min Sik, chairman of the Overseas Headquarters of the Pan-national Alliance for Korea's Reunification, and other overseas Koreans made speeches under the titles of "Points in question of Park Geun Hye's policy of unification", "Points in question of ferry Sewol disaster and south Korean society" and "Analysis of situation on Korean peninsula".

A resolution was read out.

It said that compatriots in Europe reaffirmed that the June 15 joint declaration is, indeed, the most realistic and concrete proposal for peace and reunification of the nation.

The south Korean authorities are turning their face away from this steadfast and clear truth but repeating the reckless remarks about "north's abandonment of nukes" while clamoring for cooperation with foreign forces, it charged.

They turned down the proposal of the DPRK to hold an event for reunification common to the nation and a joint memorial service to honor the memory of the victims of the ferry sinking disaster on the occasion of the 14th anniversary of the publication of the joint declaration, it held.

It demanded Park Geun Hye rescind the confrontation policy, halt all war maneuvers, ensure the reunification movement of NGOs and lift the "May 24 step".

It called upon all overseas Koreans to stage actions in firm solidarity with patriotic organizations for peace and reunification of the country.
