Unparalleled Crimes Should Be Liquidated at All Costs

If we go through the pages in the past history of humankind, there is a record of criminal outrages of aggressor who recklessly bargained and trampled over the sacred territory of other country and the prestige and sovereignty of the nation in broad daylight. That is the heinous “Katsura-Taft Agreement.”

As long as 115 years have passed since, yet this illegal aggression document remains in the hearts of our people as a painful and bloody wound of history and as a bitterly felt grudge, and we can never forget this day, whatever the passage of time and the change of generations.

At the secret talk held in Tokyo on July 29, 1905 between Katsura, the then Japanese Prime Minister and Taft, U.S. Secretary of War, “Katsura-Taft Agreement” was fabricated in a form of exchange of note verbale, in which Japan was guaranteed the suzerainty over Korea in return for its support for occupation of the Philippines by the U.S.

DPRK-Syria Friendship Formed by Sincere Obligations

54 years ago, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) and the Syrian Arab Republic established diplomatic relations under the idea of independence, peace and friendship. The two countries have since shared the high goal all along and strengthened and developed the bonds of friendship and cooperation in the common struggles for opposing the imperialists’ aggression, interference, domination and subordination and safeguarding the sovereignty of their countries and the global peace.

The DPRK-Syria relations, which have been consistently carried on even in the upheavals of history, take their roots in the genuine friendship that was formed and nurtured in early days by the great leaders of the Korean people who forged special personal relations with the leaders of the Syrian Arab Republic fighting courageously by holding fast to the firm anti-imperialist stand.

When the great President Kim Il Sung met for the first time with President Hafez al-Assad who visited the DPRK in September, Juche 63(1974), he warmly received him as a comrade-in-arms and brother standing on the same front of the anti-imperialist struggle, and whenever he received Syrian delegations, he highly appreciated the Syrian people who were maintaining a firm anti-imperialist stand under the leadership of H.E. President Hafez al-Assad.
