The 10th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between Britain and the DPRK

Not from the vaults, but should be. Life imitates The Daily Mash:

Just Cause of Korean People Supported by Britain Party

Pyongyang, June 20 (KCNA) — The 5th Congress of the Communist Party of Great Britain (Marxist-Leninist) held in London on June 12 expressed full support for the just cause of the Korean people.

A resolution adopted there reconfirmed the party’s principled and unconditional support for the DPRK.

It noted that the DPRK has achieved great successes one after another in socialist construction, in developing the national economy, in particular.

The DPRK has also registered great successes in not only developing economy but improving the standard of people’s living. Its successful launch of satellite Kwangmyongsong-2 and the successful 2nd underground nuclear test, in particular, resulted in beefing up its nuclear deterrent for self-defence, it said.

Reaffirming the party’s principled stand that it is the legitimate sovereign right of the DPRK to keep and bolster nuclear deterrent for self-defence as it has been exposed to nuclear threat constantly posed by the U.S. imperialists while keeping the southern land of the Korean Peninsula under their control, the resolution went on:

Our party fully supports the just proposal of the DPRK for replacing the armistice agreement with a peace agreement and assures that it would make efforts to stir up the atmosphere for support and solidarity with the proposal among workers and organizations for peace against war in Britain.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between Britain and the DPRK.

Our party will exert efforts to positively develop the friendship and cultural exchanges between the two peoples, between workers in particular, and bring the British progressive people to the better knowledge of the DPRK.

Our party will widely conduct information service by mobilizing various means and methods to let British people easily know about the reality of socialist Korea and its successes and stand and wage solidarity activities to win many more friends of the DPRK.
