The plan of founding the Democratic Federal Republic of Koryo advanced by President Kim Il Sung is a unique proposal for reunifying the country by forming one state under the federal system based on the three principles for national reunification.
At the report to the Sixth Congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea on the work of its Central Committee held in October Juche 69 (1980) Kim Il Sung set forth the tasks for achieving the country’s independent and peaceful reunification and a new proposal for founding the Democratic Federal Republic of Koryo.
The plan is in essence to achieve the reunification of the country and nation by founding a federal state through the joint efforts of the north and south of Korea on the basis of leaving the ideas and social systems that exist in the north and south as they are. Since all the people regard national reunification as the supreme task, the differences in ideology and system should not be an insurmountable barrier to reunification, he said, clarifying once again the principled stand of the Workers’ Party of Korea that the north will never force its ideas and social system upon south Korea and will subordinate everything to the interests of national unity and reunification.
The plan of founding the Democratic Federal Republic of Koryo is the most reasonable and realistic proposal which reflects the unanimous desire of the Korean people to achieve national reunification at the earliest date possible and the specific realities of Korea where different ideas and systems coexist in the north and south. It is also a just plan which can be accepted by those who ardently love their country and nation and sincerely aspire after national reunification.
