London 8th January 2011 Juche 100
The UK Korean Friendship Association today issued a statement in support of the proposal made by the DPRK government,political parties and organisations on the 5th of January.
We support this sincere and magnaminous proposal made by the DPRK to defuse the serious tensions, that have arisen on the Korean peninsula over the past few years,and to bring about peace and reunification.This proposal fully reflects the peace loving stand of the DPRK and the DPRK's desire for reunification of the divided Korean nation.
It is thanks to the patience, forebearance and peace loving stand of the DPRK that a war on the Korean peninsula was averted.Now the DPRK by advancing this proposal is taking concrete and realistic steps towards reducing tensions and improving the damaged inter Korean relations.The proposal is for all embracing and wide ranging dialogue which would not exclude anyone and would include both the ruling regime in south Korea but also all parties and organisations.Such a move would ensure meaningful and constructive dialogue.
The DPRK by putting forward this proposal has shown that it wants peace and not war. Now it is up to the south Korean authorities to respond to this offer that is on the table with good faith.This is the way to peace and reunification.We in UK KFA call upon the south Korean authorities to respond to this proposal at an early date and for outside forces not to block or interfere in any way with the implementation of this highly significant proposal.
