North Korea criticizes South Korea’s planned unification charter

State media calls charter mockery and insult toward the Korean people

North Korean state media today has again attacked South Korean President Park Geun-hye’s plans to establish a “unification charter,” arguing that it is guise for “unification by absorption.”

The charter was first proposed at the inaugural meeting of the Presidential Committee for Unification Preparation in August. Park argues it will serve as a basis for the constitution of a united Korea and plans to declare it next year, the 70th anniversary of Korea’s liberation from Japanese colonial rule.
