Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un in his New Year Address for 2017 stressed the need to frustrate the challenges of the anti-reunification forces at home and abroad who go against the Korean nation’s desire for reunification.
As the supreme leader indicated in his New Year Address, the Korean nation must put an end to the moves for aggression and intervention by the foreign forces including the United States that is occupying south Korea and tries to realize the strategy for achieving hegemony in the Asia-Pacific region, and wage a dynamic pan-national struggle to thwart the moves of the traitorous and sycophantic anti-reunification forces like Park Geun-hye who, failing to see clearly who is the real arch-enemy of the nation, is trying to find a way out in confrontation with the fellow countrymen.
The US, which has occupied south Korea for over 70 years, is the principal offender hindering the process of Korea’s reunification.
The US has exerted every effort to block inter-Korean reconciliation and unity and escalate inter-Korean confrontation since Korea’s division that has inflicted immeasurable misfortune and sufferings upon the Korean nation.
The US’s interference in and obstruction to the issue of Korea’s reunification are becoming all the more pronounced.
The US’s massive reinforcement of its troops in and around the Korean Peninsula and escalation of the danger of nuclear war are deliberate provocation to dampen the Korean nation’s enthusiasm for reunification, resorting to its hostile policy towards the DPRK.
Owing to moves of the traitors to the nation like Park Geun-hye who, turns a deaf ear to the national desire for reunification and is trying to find a way out in confrontation with the fellow countrymen, inter-Korean relationship is plunged into uncontrollable catastrophe and serious obstacles remain in the way of Korea’s reunification
The current situation requests the Korean nation not allow the vicious challenge of the anti-reunification elements even in the least and neutralize it.
Well aware of the will of the Korean nation to reunify their country, the United States must no longer cling to the scheme of whipping up national estrangement by inciting the anti-reunification forces in south Korea to confrontation with the fellow countrymen and war. It must roll back its anachronistic policy hostile towards the DPRK.
The south Korean people should never tolerate the south Korean authorities which drive inter-Korean relation to breakdown and put a brake on the country’s reunification.
The international community that values independence and justice should oppose the moves of the United States and its vassal forces aimed at wrecking peace on the Korean peninsula and checking its reunification, and the neighboring countries should act in favor of Korean nation’s aspiration and efforts for reunification.
The Korean nation in the north, the south and abroad will make this year a meaningful year of a new phase in independent reunification by frustrating the challenges of the anti-reunification forces at home and abroad and stepping up a nationwide grand march towards reunification through the concerted effort of the nation.
