Rodong Sinmun Urges Japan to Make Apology and Reparation for Its Crimes against Koreans

Pyongyang, January 9 (KCNA) -- Japan used all sorts of schemes to threaten and blackmail the Korean feudal government into signing "Hansong Treaty" on January 9, 1885.

An article of Rodong Sinmun Thursday says that just like "Kanghwa Island Treaty" and "Jemulpho Treaty" that the Korean feudal government signed in the latter half of the 19th century under the coercion by Japan, "Hansong Treaty" was also an unequal treaty that helped Japan pave the way for crudely violating the dignity and sovereignty of the Korean nation and further strengthening aggression of Korea.

The process of fabricating "Hansong Treaty" proved the Japanese imperialists' craftiness, viciousness and aggressive nature, the article says, and continues:

The Japanese imperialists made up illegal criminal documents one after another in such a brigandish way and finally reduced Korea to their colony.

For over 40 years since the Japanese imperialists' illegal occupation of Korea, they enforced harsh colonial rule and forced the Korean people to live the life of slaves, and took away massive human and material resources from Korea. They are, indeed, the sworn enemy of the Korean people.

The Japanese authorities are still resorting to all sorts of sleight of hand to evade the responsibility for the crimes committed by the Japanese imperialists in the past, far from making sincere repentance for those crimes.

History can neither be erased nor distorted.

Japan has to make an apology and reparation for the crimes against the Korean nation. It has to remember that the more desperately it tries to evade the state responsibility for those crimes, the deeper it will find itself falling into a pitfall and the greater the Korean people's revenge on it will be.
