No.: 067.046

To: Comrade Deputy Minister, Constantin Oancea

On March 4, Ambassador Dumitru Popa was invited by Ri Jong-mok [Ri Jong Mok], the Deputy Foreign Minister, to the Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where the latter informed Ambassador Popa that the Permanent Committee of the Supreme People’s Assembly of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea would send a letter to all peace-loving parliaments and governments, on issues dealing with the tense situation in the Korean Peninsula.

In Romania’s case, the letter addressed to Comrade Nicolae Giosan, the President of the Great National Assembly, will be handed out to our embassy later on.

While presenting the contents of the aforementioned letter, Comrade Ri Jong-mok underlined that the United States of America and the South Korean governments kept trying to introduce large quantities of modern weapons, including nuclear weapons, they commit numerous acts of aggression and provocations against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, posing a threat to peace in Asia and in the entire world.

The permanent committee of the Supreme People’s Assembly in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea expresses its conviction that the parliaments and governments of peace-loving countries will take appropriate measures to condemn the provocative and risqué acts committed by the United States of America and by the South Korean authorities, that they will undertake efforts to translate into practice the resolution adopted at the 30th session of the United Nations General Assembly on the Korean matter.
