Statement of the vice-chairman of the AINDF Central Committee
Today the south Koreans significantly mark the 9th anniversary of the publication of the June 15 Joint Declaration at the time when all the Korean people vigorously wage the struggle to defend the national dignity and realize reunification, frustrating vicious challenges of the anti-reunification forces at home and abroad.

With the publication of the June 15 Joint Declaration, a milestone for Korea’s reunification in a new millennium, the June 15 era, in which the Korean nation terminates a half century old inter-Korean mistrust and confrontation to open a wide path for independent reunification with concerted efforts of the nation, was opened. National cooperation and pro-north Korean sentiment has been promoted and south Koreans hold leader Kim Jong Il in reverence. The driving forces of reunification have been strengthened and independent reunification became an irresistible trend of the times.
Spectacular progress and miraculous successes made in the inter-Korean relations and reunification movement are attributable to the greatness and outstanding political ability of Kim Jong Il who leads the June 15 era to victory with his patriotic Songun politics, prominent leadership and broad-mindedness.
Regarding national reunification as his lifelong mission, he arranged another historic Pyongyang summit in October, 2007 and inspired the whole Korean nation with confidence in and optimism about reunification by adopting the Declaration for Development of the South-North Relations and Peace and Prosperity, an action program for the June 15 Joint Declaration.
The south Koreans keenly realized that he is the sun who will bring about the dawn of reunification through the emotional events of the past that had been advanced under the banner of “by our nation itself.” They felt that the country’s reunification would be achieved without fail only when they positively support his Songun politics and leadership for reunification.

The June 15 Joint Declaration and the October 4 Declaration are milestones for independent reunification, peace and prosperity, and invincible banners that the whole nation should hold aloft.
Attitude towards the inter-Korean declaration is a touchstone to distinguish patriotism from treachery, reunification from division, and peace from war.
Holding higher the banner of the June 15, the south Koreans from all social standings should wage an intensive struggle to liquidate the Lee regime that has defamed the inter-Korean declarations and pursues the inter-Korean showdown.
They should accelerate a nationwide
struggle against the warlike forces at home and abroad to put international

reunification in high spirits, to punish the anti-reunification forces and
realize the historic cause of reunification, if the
The AINDF, together with the south Koreans, would vigorously struggle to bring a new independent society free from foreign forces and traitors to the nation.
