Test Is Blow to Korean Unity in Japan

Posted July. 07, 2006 03:28,   


Ha Byeong-ok, the chairperson of the Pro-Seoul Federation of Korean Residents in Japan (Mindan), announced in a press conference yesterday that it was calling off its reconciliation policy with the Pro-North Korean residents’ league in Japan (Chongryon), saying, “We do not tolerate the North’s ballistic missile launches”

Against this backdrop, the “historical” May 17 joint statement between the two groups was abrogated in only a month and a half.
