Unification Spokesperson’s Commentary
regarding North Korea’s Open Letter on Holding a
‘Great National Conference for Reunification’
June 28, 2016
■ North Korea‘s proposal yesterday(6.27) to hold a 'great national conference for reunification' in the form of a joint conference of political parties, organizations and individuals on the occasion of Korea's national liberation(8.15), and to have a working-level contact in July, is a typical propaganda offensive that has been repeated over the years.
■ The North's proposal to discuss "peace and unification," while officially declaring its continued pursuit of nuclear and missile programs upon conducting its fourth nuclear test and carrying out one long-range and six mid-range ballistic missile launches, clearly shows how this offer is false and insincere.
■ North Korea should immediately stop such obsolete behavior and show its will to denuclearize through action if it truly wants to improve inter-Korean relations and promote peace and unification on the Korean Peninsula.
