Chairmen of Chongryon Headquarters Support Reunification Line and Policies Set Forth at 7th Congress of WPK
Tokyo, May 19 (KNS-KCNA) -- Chairmen of the headquarters of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) issued statements on May 18 in support of the policies for national reunification advanced at the 7th Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK).

Among them were Kim Chun Gwon, chairman of the Hyogo Prefectural Headquarters; Jon To Hyon, chairman of the Miyagi Prefectural Headquarters; Ri Thae Hyong, chairman of the Hiroshima Prefectural Headquarters; Pak Chol, chairman of the Yamaguchi Prefectural Headquarters; Pak Sun Ho, chairman of the Ehime Prefectural Headquarters; and Ri Ju Hak, chairman of the Fukuoka Prefectural Headquarters.

They said in their statements that at the Party Congress Marshal Kim Jong Un set forth the important guidelines indicating the most just way for accomplishing the historic cause of national reunification.

They underlined the need to turn out in the struggle for building a dignified, prosperous and reunified power in the homeland.

They urged the south Korean authorities to take a responsible option and properly behave on the crossroads for bringing earlier the national reunification by concerted efforts and wisdom of the Koreans, not leaving the issue of reunification, the internal one of the nation, to the tender mercy of the foreign forces and persisting in anti-reunification acts while clinging to cooperation with outsiders.

They vowed to implement the line and policies for national reunification and positively support the struggle of the compatriots in south Korea for improving the north-south relations and reunifying the country.

They called upon the south Korean authorities to abandon their confrontational attitude, remove legal and institutional mechanisms against reunification, take practical measures for defusing the military tension and conflict, respect the agreements common to the nation and consistently implement them.

They said that they would devote their efforts and enthusiasm to the struggle for meeting all challenges of the anti-reunification forces at home and abroad, ensuring peace on the Korean peninsula and realizing reunification by federal formula.
