After the US government announced that it would diplomatically boycott the Beijing Winter Olympics to be held in February next year, Republican lawmakers wrote a letter strongly opposing the declaration, which is expected to disrupt the Korean government’s plan to declare an end to the war. In the midst of this, it is noteworthy that the North Korean authorities are known to have given a lecture on the declaration of the end of the war to executives.
It is analyzed that he was trying to create a positive atmosphere for this by emphasizing the need for an end-of-war declaration to party officials.
According to a high-ranking source inside Daily NK on the 8th, on the 4th, the North Korean authorities held a political lecture on the declaration of an end to the war for the executives of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea.
The lecture was hosted by the Propaganda and Agitation Department of the Party Central Committee, and it is known that the four-page lecture material distributed to the cadres was also prepared by the Propaganda and Agitation Department.
In the lecture material, he said, ‘It was the lesson of the leader (Kim Il-sung) and Marshal (Kim Jong-il) to hand over a country without war to the next generation’.
In addition, through the lecture, the North Korean authorities erroneously thought that ‘there are some officials (workers) who have wrong views on the declaration of an end to the war’ and ‘if the declaration of an end to the war is made, our territory will be permanently divided into north and south, which is not true. ‘ was also said to have been mentioned.
According to the source, this explanation is included because some North Korean officials understand that the declaration of an end to the war recognizes the South and the North as independent states, which means eternal division.
The North Korean authorities explained the declaration of the end of the war, mentioning the legacy of their predecessors, and correcting misunderstandings related to this, it is interpreted as an intention to show the justification of the declaration to the party officials.
It is also known that the authorities continued to assert that ‘there is no need for U.S. forces in south Korea (South Korea) because the war is over when a declaration of end of the war is made’. This means that the North Korean authorities’ insistence on a declaration of an end to the war has been revealed to party officials.
In fact, after the declaration of the end of the war, there are constant concerns that North Korea may insist on disbanding the UN forces and withdrawing US forces from Korea.
In this regard, President Moon Jae-in responded to the opposition’s criticism after proposing the ‘declaration of an end to the war’ at the UN General Assembly in September, saying, “The declaration of an end to the war is an entrance to peace negotiations and a kind of political declaration.” I have nothing to do with the ROK-U.S. alliance.”
However, based on the recent lectures by party officials hosted by the Ministry of Propaganda and Agitation, the North Korean authorities are highly likely to demand the withdrawal of the hostile policy towards the DPRK (North Korea), withdrawal of US forces from Korea, and reduction of military armament, rather than negotiating denuclearization after the end of the war. .
At the 5th meeting of the 14th Supreme People’s Assembly in September, Chairman Kim Jong-un said, “If we leave the factors that spark distrust and confrontation as they are, even if we declare an end to the war, hostile acts will continue.” Prejudice and unfair double attitude toward the other side (opposite side), hostile viewpoints and policies must be withdrawn first,” he argued.
Regarding Chairman Kim’s mention of the end of the war, the South Korean government evaluated that “it is not significant that a high-level North Korean official expressed interest in the end of the war declaration externally”, but prior to the declaration of the end of the war, North Korea had to impose sanctions on North Korea and withdraw US troops from Korea. It is interpreted as a condition of
In the midst of this, it is known that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other government agencies in North Korea have entered into a strategic plan to derive the results of the Kim Jong-un regime.
According to the source, under the banner that “the greatest achievement of the ten years of great revolutionary leadership” should be given to Chairman Kim as a gift, each institution has begun to build the achievements of Chairman Kim.
The source said, “It is an important task to go forward with propaganda with tangible results.
However, he noted that “the strategy may be modified depending on the international atmosphere.”
