S. Korean Authorities Urged to Ponder over Their Every Move
The north side delegation to the inter-Korean high-level contact on October 22 issued a statement in connection with the fact that the atmosphere of improving the north-south relations which was created with much effort amid great concern and expectation of the public at home and abroad is rapidly getting chilled again due to the provocative moves of the south Korean puppet conservative group.
As already reported, the Director of the General Political Bureau of the Korean People’s Army and his party visited Inchon on October 4 to encourage the DPRK players who proved very successful at the 17th Asian Games and take part in their closing ceremony. They met the prime minister, the chief of the “security office” of the Blue House, the minister of Unification and other high-ranking officials of the south side and urged them to make a great stride for peace and reunification of the nation by revving the good atmosphere in which Koreans in the north and the south gathered in Inchon as part of the one nation. They proposed opening the second round of high-level contact for solving the pending issues between the north and the south and improving the bedeviled inter-Korean relations at a convenient time late in October or early in November.
Noting that the success made during their visit was big but it is no more than a lane, they clarified the stand to turn this lane into a wide avenue through frequent visits and open the gate to improved inter-Korean relations.
When you are driving on the Pyongyang-Hyangsan Tourist Road along the Chongchon River, which marks the boundary between the middle and northern parts in western Korea, you will see the construction sites of power stations making magnificent appearance.
They are some of the power stations in tiers which are under construction, extending for nearly 40% of the 217-km-long river.
The Workers’ Party of Korea and the government of the DPRK mapped out a plan of increasing electric power generation with water resources rich in the country as the main. To realize the plan, the builders broke the ground at the same time in ten places along the river at the outset of last year.
It was snowing from early morning on the New Year’s Day this year. Kim Ryang Saeng, war veteran and honoured disabled ex-soldier in Neighbourhood Unit No. 21, Taedongmun-dong, Central District, Pyongyang, often looked out of the window. He was expecting his grandchildren who were to come to make a New Year greeting.
Presently the doorbell rang. He hurried to the door and opened it. He was surprised to see a servicewoman from the Taedongmun Grocery standing covered with snow. She made a New Year greeting before producing bags of foodstuff. She said they were supplies from the state to him on the New Year’s Day. Feeling indebted to the woman for her favour for him, Kim asked her to come in to have holiday dishes together, but she declined with smile, saying she had to visit the bereaved family of a fallen soldier.
The servicewomen come to see Kim on the V-Day, his wife on the Mother’s Day and the couple on the International Day of Older Persons. They also come on their birthdays and holidays. This means they make a call at his home dozens of times a year.
