Russian ambassador hosts friendly gathering
 ††† Pyongyang, January 30 (KCNA) -- Andrei Karlov, Russian ambassador to
the DPRK, hosted a friendly gathering at the embassy yesterday on the
occasion of the New Year Juche 91 (2002). Present there on invitation were
Mun Jae Chol, acting chairman of the Korean Committee for Cultural Relations
with Foreign Countries, Jon Yong Jin, vice-chairman of the committee who is
also chairman of the DPRK-Russia Friendship Association, and other officials
concerned.
††† Present there were staff members of the Russian embassy.
††† Speeches were made at the gathering.
††† The participants deepened the friendship, underscoring the need to boost
the bilateral friendly relations.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Vicious challenge to peace under fire
 ††† Pyongyang, January 30 (KCNA) -- The United States reportedly plans to
reorganise its forces in South Korea and set up and expand the commanding
and control, military training and other establishments till the year 2010.
it also plans to build apartment houses in military bases on a large scale
to accommodate more families of U.S. servicemen. Rodong Sinmun today
describes the new military measures as moves to perpetuate the U.S. military
presence in South Korea and round off the preparations to provoke another
Korean war. 
††† The news analyst says:
††† The U.S. loudmouthed "threat" from the DPRK is sophism intended to
justify its military presence in South Korea and persistently pursue the
policy of aggression against the DPRK.
††† It is not the DPRK but the U.S. that increases the danger of war on the
Korean peninsula. The U.S. forces in South Korea are a U.S. detached force
of aggression, not a "war deterrent force," as evidenced by the testimonies
made by Americans. The U.S. seeks to unleash a new war with South Korea as a
forward base and the U.S. forces in South Korea as the main force, swallow
up the whole of Korea and, furthermore, put Asia under its military
domination. 
††† Prompted by this design, it is keen to escalate tensions on the Korean
peninsula at any cost so as to perpetuate its military presence in South
Korea and invent a new pretext to ignite a new Korean war. The DPRK wants
peace, not a war. So, the DPRK strongly demands that the U.S. pull its
forces out of South Korea. As long as the U.S. forces remain in South Korea,
it is impossible to preserve peace and stability on the Korean peninsula and
clear it of the danger of war.
††† The U.S. forces pullback from South Korea is a yardstick showing the
U.S. attitude toward war and peace. If the U.S. truly wants to work for
peace on the Korean peninsula, there is no reason whatsoever for the U.S. to
refuse to withdraw its forces from South Korea.
††† The U.S. should not put spurs to the war preparations, but drop the
anachronistic Korea policy and take its hands off South Korea at once.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Appeal of joint meeting supported by foreign public figures
 ††† Pyongyang, January 30 (KCNA) -- An appeal adopted at the joint meeting
of the DPRK government, political parties and organizations was supported by
Peruvian and Ethiopian public figures. Tani Baler Lopera, chairman of the
Peruvian Committee for Supporting the Independent and Peaceful Reunification
of Korea who is also international secretary of the national executive
council of the new left movement of Peru, in a statement on Jan. 24 said
that the appeal is of weighty significance in achieving the reunification of
the country by the concerted efforts of the Korean nation.
††† He went on: 
††† The June 15 North-South Joint Declaration provided by a bold decision of
leader Kim Jong Il is a steadfast landmark for the reunification of Korea.
††† We are convinced that Korea will surely be reunified under the policy of
national reunification set forth by President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim
Jong Il. 
††† We will further strengthen the international solidarity movement for
supporting the struggle of the workers' party and people of Korea for
national reunification this year.
††† Bewketu Tassew, chief of the Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, group for the study
of the Juche idea, in a statement on Jan. 26 noted that the appeal fully
reflects the will of all the Korean people to bring earlier the independent
reunification by the concerted efforts of the nation under the uplifted
banner of the June 15 North-South Joint Declaration.
††† The joint declaration, banner of independent reunification, should be
defended and implemented to the letter, he said, and stressed:
††† The inter-Korean relations should be improved and revitalized and the
factors of threatening peaceful reunification and obstructing reunification
removed. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Appeal of joint meeting hailed by overseas compatriots
 ††† Pyongyang, January 30 (KCNA) -- The International United Confederation
of Koreans (International Kothongryon), the council of Korean national
movement organizations in the U.S., the American union for Independence,
democracy and reunification and the eastern regional federation of Koreans
in the U.S. issued statements in support of an appeal to compatriots at home
and abroad adopted at the joint meeting of the DPRK government, political
parties and organizations. The International Kothongryon said that it would
make all efforts to frustrate the moves of all the enemies to solve the
issue of the nation, depending on foreign forces, plead for permanent
presence of the u.s. troops and block the just road of the Korean nation to
reunification at any cost.
††† The council of Korean national movement organizations in the U.S.
announced that it would make a positive contribution to making this year a
historic year of paving the way for reunification in firm solidarity with
the national reunification movement forces at home and abroad.
††† The American union for independence, democracy and reunification said
that it would turn out in the struggle to pave the way for reunification
hand in hand with patriotic fellow countrymen at home and abroad, noting
that there is no condition for the Korean nation to fail to unite.
††† The eastern regional federation of Koreans in the U.S. said that the
appeal carrying the three appeals and three proposals is a practical
initiative to open a turning phase in the reunification movement this year
and that it would wage a dynamic struggle in the van of the independent
reunification movement camp.
††† Meanwhile, Yang Yong Dong, chairman of the General Association of
Koreans in China, in a statement said that the association would dynamically
struggle to glorify this year as a year of a new leap forward in promoting
unity and reunification by the concerted efforts of the Korean nation under
the banner of national independence and the historic June 15 North-South
Joint Declaration. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Books on Kim Jong Il's greatness off the press
 ††† Pyongyang, January 30 (KCNA) -- The Workers' Party of Korea publishing
house brought out "Comrade Kim Jong Il, The Great Leader Of The
Juche-Oriented Revolutionary Cause" (five volumes), a library
comprehensively dealing with his greatness, on the occasion of his birthday.
Leading the party and revolution for nearly 40 years, Kim Jong Il has
glorified the revolutionary idea of President Kim Il Sung as the guiding
idea in the era of independence.
††† And he has faithfully carried forward and developed the revolutionary
cause of the president and thus turned the DPRK into an ideologically,
politically and militarily strong power and a land pervaded with human love.
††† The library takes a profound and comprehensive depiction of Kim Jong Il
as an outstanding thinker-theoretician, a prominent statesman, an
extraordinary strategist, the benevolent father of the people, and a great
man. 
††† Vol. 1 "the great thinker and theoretician" deals with the greatness of
Kim Jong Il as an outstanding thinker and theoretician who shows a bright
road for the popular masses to follow for the cause of independence by
carrying forward and developing the Juche idea, the revolutionary idea of
Kim Il Sung. 
††† Vol. 2 "the great statesman" tells about the great personality of Kim
Jong Il as a prominent statesman who has glorified a new history of the
people-centered politics with the Juche-based political philosophy and
distinguished political ability and led the revolutionary cause of Juche to
victory. 
††† Vol. 3 "the great brilliant commander" stresses that he is an
illustrious commander who is guiding the cause of Juche-based army building
to great victory with his rare military wisdom and commanding art and
through his distinguished activities.
††† He is also a benevolent father who devotes his all to the happiness of
the people with unbounded love for them, says vol. 4 "the great father".
††† Vol. 5 "the great man" tells about his greatness as a paragon of a true
human being in the present times.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Materialization of three appeals and three proposals urged
 ††† Pyongyang, January 30 (KCNA) -- All the Koreans in the north and south
of the country and abroad should positively respond to the three appeals and
three proposals and turn out as one in a nationwide movement to put them
into practice, says Rodong Sinmun today in a by-lined article. The appeals
and proposals were made at the joint meeting of the government, political
parties and organizations in the DPRK, which was recently held to promote
the unity of the nation and the reunification of the country this year.
††† The goal of the movement for the independent reunification of the
country this year is to hit a high target of independent reunification
through concerted efforts of the Koreans, the article says, and goes on:
††† The key to attaining this goal is to preserve and implement the historic
June 15 North-South Joint Declaration.
††† The joint declaration should be invariably maintained and implemented to
the letter no matter how the situation may change and who will come to power
or what type of a "government" will appear in South Korea.
††† The key to opening a phase of independent reunification is for all
Koreans to put forward the great proposition "by the united efforts of our
nation" as the common idea and fully embody it.
††† This alone will make it possible to improve the inter-Korean relations,
achieve the national reconciliation and unity and reunify the country.
††† In regard to the north-south dialogue, the article stresses that it
should be an independent reunification-oriented dialogue, which is based on
the stand of remaining true to the spirit of the joint declaration and
implementing it. 
††† It further says:
††† Without distinction, we will join hands with anyone who positively
responds to the joint declaration and works to achieve the reunification of
the country in accordance with it.
††† All the fellow countrymen should courageously turn out in an anti-war
struggle to smash the moves of bellicose forces at home and abroad for a new
war and safeguard peace of the country and security of the nation.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

New universities to be founded in DPRK
 ††† Pyongyang, January 30 (KCNA) -- Universities of light industry and
construction will be established in Hamhung, an industrial city of Korea.
Hamhung University of Light Industry trains students as technicians in the
fields of foodstuff, textile, knitwear, clothing, paper-making, light
industrial machines, shoes, plastic and rubber processing and Hamhung
University of Construction trains students as engineers in the fields of
architectural design and engineering, building machines, surveying,
horticulture, city administration and building materials.
††† These universities open in April this year. They will positively
contribute to the development of industries in the eastern coast of the
country. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Poultry makes rapid progress in DPRK
 ††† Pyongyang, January 30 (KCNA) -- New poultry farms appear and the
existing ones are being built on an expansion basis in the DPRK as required
by the new century. Recent years witnessed the completion of new modern
chicken farms including chicken farm no. 112, September 27 chicken farm, and
those in Hwangju, Kanggye and North Phyongan Province which are now paying
off profusely. 
††† Chicken farms in Mangyongdae, Sopho, Ryongsong and in other parts of
Pyongyang have been modernized and gone over to a partial operation. A
breeder can raise over 20,000 chickens on those farms as all breeding
processes ranging from the supply of feed and water to temperature,
humidity, lighting and ventilation regulation in pens are computerized.
††† Chickens, each weighing over 2 kgs, are being bred in just 40 days in
fattening shops. 
††† Ostriches known to be raised in tropical regions only are being bred in
the DPRK. 
††† Ostrich farms built in Pyongyang, Onchon and other places are equipped
with modern facilities and based on the latest technology. They have a good
prospect. 
††† A work is now under way to modernize the existing duck farms.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

U.S. state under secretary's remarks blasted
††† Pyongyang, January 30 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign
Ministry answered a question put by KCNA today as regards the anti-DPRK
remarks of the U.S. under secretary of state. He said:
††† John Bolton, who is under secretary for arms control and international
security, at the UN conference on disarmament on Jan. 24 urged the DPRK to
accept an inspection by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA),
asserting that the nuclear issue of the DPRK poses a serious threat to
international security.
††† This is nothing but a provocative remark made by a person totally
ignorant of the contents of the DPRK-U.S. agreed framework, to say nothing
of the core of the nuclear issue.
††† The 1994 agreed framework was adopted to solve the nuclear issue. It is
well known to everyone whose interests it reflects.
††† The keynote of it is the U.S. provision to the DPRK of two light water
reactors, each with a capacity of one million kw, by the year 2003 in return
for its freezing of an independent nuclear power industry.
††† According to the measure for simultaneous action stipulated in the
framework, the DPRK froze its nuclear program and allowed the surveillance
by the IAEA. But there has been no progress in the lwr project for the last
seven years except a ground-work done for the construction.
††† The U.S. has, in fact, not properly discharged its obligations under the
framework. nevertheless, it is now demanding "inspection" of the DPRK in a
bid to attain its another sinister purpose.
††† It is the United States which has caused complicated problems in the
implementation of the framework, including compensation for the electricity
loss, a product of the delayed lwr construction and little progress in the
supply of heavy oil. It is again the U.S. which is threatening the Korean
people with nuclear weapons.
††† The U.S. is well advised to reflect on its actions before taking issue
with the DPRK and, though belatedly, sincerely fulfil its commitments made
in the framework.

appeal of joint meeting supported by foreign public figures
 ††† pyongyang, 30 de enero (atcc) -- segun informaciones, ee.uu. se propone
reorganizar sus unidades militares ocupantes de sudcorea y establecer y
ampliar las instalaciones de mando y control y los centros de entrenamiento
hasta el 2010. tambien, planea construir en gran medida en las bases
militares las viviendas para mayor numero de familias de militares
norteamericanos. estas medidas militares son para eternizar la presencia de
sus tropas en sudcorea y dar mas perfeccion a sus preparativos de la nueva
guerra coreana, senala asi el periodico "rodong sinmun" en un comentario de
hoy y continua: 
††† la supuesta "amenaza" de la rpdc de que ee.uu. habla no pasa de ser un
sofisma para justificar su presencia militar en el sur de corea y arreciar
su politica de agresion a la rpdc.
††† el peligro de la guerra en la peninsula coreana lo crea no la rpdc sino
ee.uu. 
††† las tropas norteamericanas ocupantes de la parte sur de esta peninsula
no son las "fuerzas de detencion de la guerra" sino el cuerpo especial de la
agresion. 
††† ee.uu., tomando a sudcorea por base avanzada y a sus tropas ocupantes de
esta por las fuerzas armadas principales, pretende provocar la nueva guerra
coreana y asi ocupar toda corea y realizar su dominio militar sobre asia.
por eso ee.uu. agrava de toda manera la tension de la peninsula coreana para
procurar un pretexto para prolongar su ocupacion militar sobre surcorea y
provocar una nueva guerra.
††† la rpdc no desea la guerra, sino la paz. por lo tanto demanda
resueltamente la retirada de las tropas norteamericanas de surcorea.
††† mientras permanecen estas tropas en sudcorea, no pueden ser aseguradas
la paz y la estabilidad ni eliminado el peligro de la guerra en esta
peninsula. 
††† la retirada de esas tropas constituye un cartabon para medir la posicion
de ee.uu. sobre la guerra y la paz.
††† si este pais tiene de veras la voluntad de esforzarse por la
preservacion de la paz de la peninsula coreana, no tendra ningun motivo para
mantener sus tropas en sudcorea.
††† ee.uu. no debe dar acicate a los preparativos de la guerra sino
abandonar su anacronica politica de agresion a corea y quitar pronto sus
manos del sur de corea.
