As the North Korean Labor Party rules, which were revised at the 8th party congress, were recently released, interpretations of ‘abandonment of unification of red flags’ have been raised, but inside, they are concentrating on related work, such as increasing the number of operatives against South Korea. reported to be

According to an insider inside Daily NK on the 9th, the 314 liaison office under the Central Party’s Cultural Exchange Bureau was expanded and reorganized at the end of last month. Interestingly, the number of employees increased from 1,200 to 3,000.

Here, the 314 Liaison Center is a specialized technical institution in charge of research and procurement of South Korean data and machine tools, focusing on forgery of passports.

For this reason, there is a reaction from the inside about the expansion of the 314 liaison office, saying, “You can see how much the party puts the revolution in South Korea and the reunification of the country among our people as its core business.”

In fact, the source said, “We plan to continuously expand the number of other liaison offices belonging to the Cultural Exchange Bureau,” and said, “It is the party’s policy that unification of red goods is the nation’s greatest task.”

The source continued, “The party is saying that it is impossible to pass on a country divided in two to the next generation.” He added, “There is also a culture that is not changing in our belief that the divided country should be reunified without foreign interference.”

In North Korea, ‘between our people’ means “together with all revolutionary and patriotic forces (capacities) in south Korea and abroad that support and support the government of the republic (North Korea)”. It means that they are trying to recruit pro-North Korean personnel and expand their power.

In particular, in the process of reorganizing the liaison office, it is said that there was also a policy of the party to organize in a more detailed and detailed manner, imitating the work of North Korea in the Kim Il-sung era.

A source said, “During the time of General (Kim Jong-Il), he almost gave up on the revolution in South Korea due to lack of funds, but now he is going to do it the way he did in the days of the leader (Kim Il-sung). introduced

In the future, he emphasized, “We will solidify the foundation for the completion of the nuclear force and focus more on the revolutionary unification of South Korea based on this.”

Meanwhile, in revising the party rules in January, North Korea removed from the rules the expression “between our people” and “to carry out the task of national liberation and democratic revolution on a national scale.”

In response, some in South Korea gave an interpretation that they had given up on ‘reunification of red flowers’. A source related to this said, “In the past, the focus was on working with the South Korean forces, but now it is more to emphasize the will to complete the revolution on the solid foundation of being a nuclear power.”

In fact, the Chosun Shinbo reported on the 7th that “in the task of struggle for national reunification in the preface to the Party Bylaws, it was clearly stated that we would protect the stability and peaceful environment of the Korean peninsula (Korean peninsula) by suppressing military threats with a strong national defense force.” “This is reflected in the party’s unwavering position to ensure peace by force and accelerate the reunification of the country,” he said.
