The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK), the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE) , the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA)and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula(BSCPRKP issued a statement supporting the Questionnaire sent by the  Consultative Council for National Reconciliation (CCNR) of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) to the south Korean authorities:
  Recently the 17th anniversary of the historic June 15 joint declaration took place . In order to realise the noble ideals of the June 15 joint declaration is absolutely essential to adhere to the principle of independence , of By Our Nation Itself. However , regrettably , the new south Korean authorities are doing do this but instead are talking about sanctions against the DPRK and the nuclear issue of the DPRK. Basically , it does appear to be a case of a fascist or conservative puppet  in south Korea 
being replaced by a liberal one . 
  If the new south Korean regime is not to be condemned by the Korean people and world people as another puppet regime , it urgently needs to clarify its attitude . In this regard the DPRK CCNR has sent a 9 point questionnaire .  The DPRK CCNR  Questionaire raises vital questions such as 
adherence to the By Our Nation Itself principle, stopping military exercises , not raising the nuclear issue of the DPRK and the repatriation of DPRK citizens held against their will in south Korea amongst others that need to be address.
 We support this questionaire and urge the south Korean authorities address the just concerns of the DPRK .

The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK), the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE) , the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA)and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula(BSCPRKP) issued a joint statement in support of the statement issued by the Foreign Ministry (FM) of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) concerning the case of Otto Warmbier:
  A truly hysterical campaign has taken place in the media of the US and those countries that follow the US such as the UK  concerning the case of Otto Warmbier a US national who had been sentenced to re-education through corrective labour in the DPRK , Warmbier had been released on humanitarian grounds by the DPRK but had mysteriously died once back in the US .  A furore has been kicked up
by US imperialist reactionary forces including US president Donald Trump and arch reactionary 
Senator 'Oven Chips' McCain with calls for more sanctions and military action etc .
   The facts of the case where that Warmbier a US national visiting the DPRK as a tourist committed a grave crime against the socialist system in January 2016. Warmbier was given a fair trial with his own defence lawyer to represent him. DPRK justice is people's justice, working class justice . It should be remembered that Warmbier was a citizen of a state that is technically at war with the DPRK as no peace treaty has been ever signed and the US is most hostile today . Warmbier had confessed to having worked through a third party with the US CIA .Warmbier was part of Trojan Horse operations by the US imperialists and other imperialists try undermine from within the socialist system of the DPRK ,derail Juche and restore the capitalist system . His punishment was a just one.
 Basically, Warmbier under the Hague and Geneva conventions would not have the same level of protection as uniformed combatants , the  DPRK could have taken more drastic measures against him should it have seen the need to do so. However Warmbier was sentenced to 15 year hard labour to re-educate him . When he became ill he was given medical treatment free of charge by the DPRK and his life was even saved by  DPRK 
doctors when his heart stopped beating, 
    Warmbier's death remains a mystery . It should be pointed out that Warmbier died in the US not the DPRK . No autopsy has been performed so the exact cause of death remains unknown.It was confirmed by the DPRK Foreign Ministry that Warmbier's health indicators were normal when he left the DPRK.
   Some have raised the possibility that Warmbier died due to pre-existing or congenital medical conditions which were unknown . The DPRK Foreign Ministry itself in its statement drew a parallel with the case of apprehended US spy Hunziker who died shortly after being released by the DPRK and returning  to the US . So  we ask whether the US authorities were involved in the death in some way , whether they liquidate their own spies in order to safeguard secrecy ?
   The US needs to stop its anti-DPRK campaign and tell the world the truth instead of inventing
lies about the tragic death of its citizen Warmbier .

DPRK FM Spokesman Accuses U.S. of Slandering Humanitarian Measure


Pyongyang, June 23 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry Friday released the following statement over the fact the U.S. administration authorities are heating up the anti-DPRK smear campaign by abusing the humanitarian measure taken by the DPRK as an inhuman act, concerning the death of Warmbier, an American citizen:

Warmbier is clearly a criminal sentenced to reform through labor in accordance with the DPRK law on March 16, 2016 for the hostile act he committed against the DPRK on an assignment from an anti-DPRK plot-breeding organization of the U.S.

As was made public to the world, during the press conference on February 29, 2016, Warmbier confessed in tears that he had committed hostile act against the DPRK, with connivance of the U.S. administration, after he received an assignment from the Z-Society of the Virginia University of the U.S. controlled by the Friendship United Methodist Church, an anti-DPRK plot-breeding organization of the U.S., and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

CNN and other U.S. media outlets are still broadcasting the video of Warmbier admitting his crime and apologizing for it at the press conference in Pyongyang.

The DPRK-U.S. relations are in the most hostile and belligerent state, and the U.S. is making every frantic effort to disparage the prestige of the dignified DPRK and stifle it while imposing heinous sanctions and pressure unprecedented in history.

Although we had no reason at all to show mercy to such a criminal of the enemy state, we provided him with medical treatments and care with all sincerity on humanitarian basis until his return to the U.S., considering that his health got worse.

As for the groundless public opinion now circulating in the U.S. that he died of torture and beating during his reform through labor, the American doctors who came to the DPRK for repatriation of Warmbier will have something to say about it.

They examined Warmbier and exchanged medical observations about him with our doctors. They recognized that his health indicators like pulse, temperature, respiration and the examination result of the heart and lung were all normal and that we provided him with medical treatment and brought him back alive whose heart was nearly stopped.

Now the former officials of the Obama administration publicize as their "achievement" the release of 10 American citizens granted by the humanitarian measures we had taken. They cannot but acknowledge the fact that we treat the detainees in accordance with international laws and standard.

The fact that Warmbier died suddenly in less than a week just after his return to the U.S. in his normal state of health indicators is a mystery to us as well.

It reminds us of an incident that Hunziker, an American citizen who had illegally crossed the border and entered the DPRK on August 24, 1996, died in less than a month after he returned home in perfect health accompanied by Bill Richardson, the then U.S. Congressman, on November 27 the same year thanks to our humanitarian measure.

At that time, the U.S had totally ignored and not even mentioned a word about his death. The point here is he was also an American citizen, was he not?

Warmbier is a victim of policy of "strategic patience" of Obama who was engrossed in utmost hostility and negation against the DPRK and refused to have dialogue with the DPRK.

Why the U.S. government which claims to care about the welfare of its citizens had not even once made an official request for the release of Warmbier on humanitarian basis during the Obama administration? The answer should be given by the U.S. itself.

Although Warmbier was a criminal who committed hostile act against the DPRK, we accepted the repeated requests of the present U.S. administration and, in consideration of his bad health, sent him back home on humanitarian grounds according to the adjudication made on June 13, 2017 by the Central Court of the DPRK.

However, the U.S. totally distorted this truth and dared to clamor about "retaliation" and "pressure" on the dignified DPRK while deliberately kicking up the smearing campaign against the DPRK. This is a frontal challenge and political plot against us.

To make it clear, we are the biggest victim of this incident and there would be no more foolish judgment than to think we do not know how to calculate gains and losses.

The smear campaign against DPRK staged in the U.S. compels us to make firm determination that humanitarianism and benevolence for the enemy are a taboo and we should further sharpen the blade of law.

The U.S. should ponder over the consequences to be entailed from its reckless and rash act. -0-

S. Korean Authorities' Fascist Actions Denounced by Democratic Lawyers Association of Korea

Pyongyang, June 23 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Democratic Lawyers Association of Korea released a statement on June 22 as regards the fact that the evil law of the confrontational era is still rampant in south Korea to suppress democracy and truth.

Shortly ago, the south Korean judicial authorities held the final hearing on an appeal at the Seoul High Court and demanded five years in prison for an inhabitant, who posted an article praising the peerlessly great men of Mt Paektu on websites and called for reunification through alliance, on charges of violation of the "Security Law".

On June 13 they held a trial of a reverend and sentenced him to three years in prison on charges of espionage that he was linked with the north during the Park Geun Hye regime.

The statement said that such fascist actions are unpardonable challenge to the mindset of the people valuing justice and conscience and yearning for a new politics and life and an anachronistic attempt to stem the trend of the times toward national reconciliation, unity and reunification.

It went on:

The south Korean authorities outwardly talk a lot about the development of the north-south relations, but are inwardly seeking to arrest the atmosphere for reunification through alliance with the north. This is an open denial of the DPRK and an undisguised declaration of their intention to go for confrontation with fellow countrymen just like the conservative regimes.

They are advised to draw a lesson from the miserable fate of Park Geun Hye who was expelled from Chongwadae before the expiry of her term of office and imprisoned while getting hell-bent on violation of human rights and confrontation with fellow countrymen.

It is the unanimous demand of all Koreans and the international community to abrogate the "Security Law", an evil law against human rights and reunification.

The south Korean authorities should resolutely say good-bye to the heinous confrontational policy towards the fellow countrymen, abolish the "Security Law", an evil law of outdated era, and set free unreasonably imprisoned pro-reunification patriots at once, if they truly wish improved north-south ties and reunification.

If they persist in the reckless treacherous moves to trample down the justice and truth while going against the trend of the era and the mindset of the people, they will be cursed and denounced by the whole nation. -0-

Illegal Sanctions Can Never Be Tolerable: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, June 23 (KCNA) -- Recently, European countries are strongly reacting against the fact that the U.S. Senate adopted a bill on sanctions expansion against Russia.

The bill which was cooked up, taking issue with Russia's "invasion of Ukraine", intervention in the U.S. presidential election, etc. involves not only Russian enterprises but also European ones participating in project for building the gas pipeline Russia-Europe Northern Stream-2.

The German foreign minister and the Austrian chancellor promptly published a joint statement in which they strongly declared "they could not accept illegal and extraterritorial attempt for sanctions," claiming that the new sanctions of the U.S. violate an international law and threaten the energy security of the EU.

Disclosing that the bill pursues the only aim at placing the upper-hand of the U.S. by pushing Russia beyond gas export to the European market, they stressed that political sanctions should not be linked with economic interests.

The German minister of Economy warned that Germany would take a retaliatory measure if Trump ratifies the bill, and the EU Commission and France demanded that the U.S. should discuss the sanctions against Russia upon consultation with its allies of Europe.

It is too natural that the U.S. sanctions are opposed and rejected by the international community as they unhesitatingly harm the interests of other countries and regions according to its interests and standards only, indifferent to international law.

The U.S. is frantically conducting the unjust and illegal sanctions and pressure upon the DPRK, taking issue with the latter's exercise of the right to self-defence to cope with the former's extreme hostile policy and nuclear threat to the latter.

The cruel and barbarous nature of the U.S. sanctions against the DPRK is beyond imagination as they are to deprive our state of its right to development and our people of their right to existence.

The U.S. has brandished the stick of sanctions against the countries aspiring for the independent life, being disobedient to it. Now it is to brandish the stick of sanctions against the European countries which are called its allies.

The reality shows that when the U.S. high-handed and arbitrary practices are permitted and any country support them, it can never escape from the target of the U.S. sanctions in the future.

The international community should never allow the U.S. sanctions to turn the world into an era of mediaeval darkness. -0-

  Despite the recent and much vaunted change of regime in south Korea from a 'conservative ' one 
to a 'liberal' , the National Security Law (NSL) , a fascist McCarthyite relic which has been in force for almost 70 years. The NSL is anti-reunification  because its premise is the DPRK , the northern half of the country is the enemy therefore any contact with the north is punishable.
 Recently the new , so-called, 'liberal' regime have upheld the NSL . As the Democratic Lawyers Association of Korea pointed out ' Shortly ago, the south Korean judicial authorities held the final hearing on an appeal at the Seoul High Court and demanded five years in prison for an inhabitant, who posted an article praising the peerlessly great men of Mt Paektu on websites and called for reunification through alliance, on charges of violation of the "Security Law".

On June 13 they held a trial of a reverend and sentenced him to three years in prison on charges of espionage that he was linked with the north during the Park Geun Hye regime.' 
  The time for the abolition of the NSL is long overdue  ! It the new south Korean authorities are really serious about reunification , they should scrap it at once.

ASSPUK,JISGE, UK KFA and BSCPRKP slam US bomber flights against People's Korea !

                      22nd of June  Juche 106(2017)
The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK), the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE) , the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA)and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula(BSCPRKP) issued a joint statement condemning the latest US war moves against People's Korea  :
 As clarified by the  answer given by the spokesman of the DPRK Foreign Ministry  the US has been persistently stepping up war moves against People's Korea, the land of Juche . On June 20, the U.S. introduced two B-1B nuclear strategic bombers into the airspace of south Korea to conduct simulation bombing exercises and is openly prattling that it would send strategic bombers to the Korean peninsula more than once every month. 
 Once again the US imperialists have threatened People's Korea with nuclear annihalation and are attempting  modern nuclear gunboat diplomacy against the DRPK with the aim of forcing unilateral nuclear disarment on People's Korea. People's Korea is targeted by US imperialism because it is a socialist country and because it is independent and anti-imperialist .
   The independent socialist DPRK of Juche will not be intimidated by US imperialism ! The DPRK has declared " The more the U.S. adheres to the reckless military gamble, the further the DPRK will accelerate at an extraordinarily fast speed the advancement of the nuclear forces with a view to safeguarding peace and stability of the Korean peninsula, the region and the world."
 The US should stop threatening the DPRK and should get out of Korea !
HANDS OFF PEOPLE'S KOREA!
US OUT OF KOREA !
NO TO SANCTIONS ! NO TO WAR !
