Since problem has been put off until now, we have no need to wait any longer. We must establish independent government in south Korea through general election while participating as a member of UN and open diplomatic and trade relationship with other nations to solve peoples living condition and for unification of north and south Korea. Our party represents 30,000,000 Korean people and asks UN to take immediate and daring action for Korean people.”
