At the invitation of Comrade Kim II Sung, Premier of the Cabinet of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Comrade Chou En-lal, Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China, paid an official friendly visit to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea from April 5 to 7, 1970.
During their stay in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Premier Chou En-lai and his entourage were accorded a warm welcome by the Korean people. This is a manifestation of the profound friendship of the Korean people for the fraternal Chinese people.
During the visit, talks were held in a fraternal and friendly atmosphere between Comrade Chou En-lai, Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China, and Comrade Kim II Sung, Premier of the Cabinet of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
Taking part in the talks on the Chinese side were: Comrade Chi Peng-fei, Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs; Comrade Yang Teh-chung, responsible cadre of a department under the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China; Comrade Tsao Ke-chiang, Deputy Director of the Asian Department of the Foreign Ministry; Comrade Han Hsu, Deputy Director of the Protocol Department of the Foreign Ministry; and Comrade Li Yun-chuan, Chinese Ambassador to Korea.
Taking part in the talks on the Korean side were: Comrade Choi Yong Kun; Comrade Kim II; Comrade Pak Sung Chul; Comrade Huh Dam, First Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs; Comrade Kim Yung Nam, deputy head of a department under the Central Committee of the Korean Workers' Party; and Comrade Hyun Joon Keuk, Korean Ambassador to China.
During the talks, the two sides had an exchange of views on the further strengthening and development of the traditional friendly relations and co-operation between the Chinese and Korean peoples and on a series of other questions of common interest to both sides.
The Korean side expresses congratulations to the Chinese people, who, under the leadership of the Communist Party of China with Comrade Mao Tsetung as its leader and Comrade Lin Piao as its deputy leader, have smashed the schemes of imperialism and modern revisionism for capitalist restoration and victoriously carried out the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution and are exerting every effort to build socialism with greater, faster, better and more economical results and fight for the enhancement of their national defence capabilities, turning their country into a socialist state ever growing in strength.
The Korean side wishes the Chinese people still greater successes in their struggle to oppose the aggressive activities of U.S. imperialism and its lackeys, develop industry, agriculture and science and technology, further enhance their national defence capabilities and liberate Taiwan.
The Chinese side expresses congratulations to the Korean people, who, led by the Korean Workers' Party headed by Comrade Kim II Sung, giving full play to the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance and vigorously unfolding the chullima (winged horse) movement, have turned their country within a short period into a developed socialist country with a solid foundation of independent national economy, a powerful all-people defence system and a brilliant national culture.
The Chinese side wishes the Korean people still greater successes in their cause of simultaneously carrying out economic construction and the building of national defence in face of the daily intensifying new war provocations of U.S. imperialism and in their struggle to make the U.S. Imperialist aggressor troops withdraw from south Korea and realize the reunification of the fatherland independently.
The two sides hold that the further consolidation of the blood-cemented militant friendship and friendly unity between the Chinese and Korean peoples is in complete accord with the interests of their common cause; they express the firm resolve and will of the two peoples to continue to strengthen their common Struggle against the imperialist activities of aggression and war and further develop their relations of mutual assistance and co-operation in various fields.
The two sides maintain that the present international situation continues to develop in a direction favourable to the revolutionary struggles of the people of the world and unfavourable to imperialism, modern revisionism and the reactionaries of various countries.
The two sides point out in particular that U.S. Imperialism is resorting to still more cunning and sinister tactics to find a way out of its doomed destruction through aggression and war, and that due vigilance must be maintained against this.
At present, U.S. imperialism Is making intensified efforts to carry out naked armed intervention and subversive activities, barbarously suppressing the national-liberation movements of the peoples of Asia, Africa and Latin America and thus seriously undermining peace.
U.S. imperialism is directing its spearhead of aggression against Asia in particular. Using Asians to tight Asians, it is expanding its aggression against the Asian socialist countries and the people in this region by mobilizing the Japanese militarist forces and its other vassals and puppets.
Under the slogan of "Vietnamizing” the Viet Nam war, U.S. imperialism is further intensifying its criminal war of aggression against the Vietnamese people; at the same lime, it is wantonly conducting fresh activities of war provocation to aggravate tension in Korea; and it is ceaselessly carrying out aggression and provocations against the Chinese people.
All this demonstrates that U.S. imperialism is the main force of aggression and war and the most ferocious common enemy of the peoples of the world. Sly and cunning, U.S. imperialism is vainly trying to cover up its aggressive nature under the smoke-screen, of "peace." However, the people of the world can never be duped. Resolute and uncompromising struggles must be waged against U.S. imperialism through to the very end.
The intensified activities of aggression and war on the part of U.S. imperialism, far from showing its "strength," only indicate its weakness.
Both sides arc firmly convinced that so long as all revolutionary people unite and direct the spearhead of their attack against U.S. imperialism and unfold powerful struggles against it throughout the world.
U.S. imperialism will surely perish and the people's revolutionary cause will surely triumph.
Actively shielded by U.S. imperialism, Japanese militarism has revived and has become a dangerous force of aggression in Asia. Relying on U.S. imperialism as its prop and working hand in glove with it, Japanese militarism is vainly trying to realize its old dream of a "Greater East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere" and has openly embarked on the road of aggression against the people of Asia. The two sides strongly condemn ail this.
Acting upon the "new Asia policy'' of U.S. imperialism, the Japanese reactionaries are now stepping up the fascistization and militarization of Japan, rapidly increasing its military strength for aggression, setting up a large number of additional military bases and intensifying war preparations in their attempt to carry out expansion abroad. Japan has become an advance base and stronghold for a new war of aggression in Asia.
The Japanese militarists are directly serving U.S. imperialism in its war of aggression against Viet Nam, actively taking part in the U.S. imperialist new scheme of war in Korea and wildly attempting to include the Chinese people's sacred territory Taiwan in their sphere of influence.
If these wild schemes of Japanese militarism are ignored, then it will surely inflict once again huge disasters upon the peoples of Asia and the rest of the world.
There must be no illusions or wishful thinking of any kind about Japanese militarism.
Failure to see the dangers of Japanese militarism and fraternization with the Sato government mean encouraging Japanese militarist expansion abroad and strengthening the U.S. imperialist position in Asia.
The revolutionary people of the whole world must take concerted actions to frustrate and smash the aggressive designs of Japanese militarism.
The two sides hold that the current struggle against Japanese militarism is a part of the struggle against U.S. imperialism as well as a struggle for the defence of peace in Asia and the world. The two sides express their determination to further strengthen their common struggle against Japanese militarism while carrying on the struggle against U.S. Imperialism.
The Korean side strongly condemns U.S. imperialism for forcibly occupying the Chinese people's sacred territory Taiwan and instigating its lackeys to conduct ceaseless activities of aggression and provocation against the People's Republic of China, and fully supports the Chinese people's just struggle to liberate Taiwan from U.S. imperialist occupation and realize territorial integrity.
U.S. imperialism is opposing the restoration of the rightful position of the People's Republic of China on the international arena, trying t0 stem her influence and create "two Chinas." This scheme is bound to end in ignominious failure.
The Chinese side firmly condemns U.S. imperialism and its lackey the Pak Jung Hi puppet clique for their frantic new war provocations against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and their barbarous massacre and unprecedented fascist violent repression of the revolutionaries and patriotic people in south Korea.
The Chinese side holds that the forcible occupation of south Korea by U.S. imperialism and the U.S. imperialist policy of aggression are the basic obstacle to the reunification of Korea and the constant source of war there. The Chinese side fully supports the correct policy of the Government of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea for the reunification of the fatherland, the policy of making the U.S. aggressor troops withdraw from south Korea and realizing the reunification of the country by the Koreans themselves independently and free from interference by any foreign force.
The two sides express complete support to and solidarity with the Vietnamese people in their heroic struggle against U.S. aggression and for national salvation.
U.S. imperialism must immediately stop its war of aggression against south Viet Nam and all its aggressive acts infringing upon the sovereignty and security of the Democratic Republic of Vict Nam, and it must unconditionally and completely withdraw its aggressor troops and those of its vassals and the south Korean puppets from south Viet Nam. The question of Vict Nam must be settled in conformity with the Vietnamese people's own wishes.
The Vietnamese people will certainly win final victory in their struggle to defeat the U.S. aggressors and fulfil their just cause.
The two sides firmly condemn U.S. imperialism for its aggression and armed intervention against Laos and resolutely support the just struggle against U.S. imperialism and its lackeys waged by the Laotian people under the leadership of the Laotian Patriotic Front.
The two sides hold that the recent reactionary coup d'etat engineered by U.S. imperialism in Cambodia is a serious threat to the genuine interests of the Cambodian people and the security of the three Indo-Chinese countries. The two sides strongly condemn U.S. imperialism for its criminal sabotage activities against the Cambodian people and support the tatter's struggle for the defence of national independence and sovereignty as well as the five-point declaration made by the Cambodian Head of State Samdech Norodom Sihanouk on March 23.
The two sides express support to and solidarity with the Japanese people in their struggle for the abrogation of the U.S.-Japan "security treaty" and the dismantling of the U.S. imperialist military bases and in their struggle to oppose the revival and rearming of Japanese militarism and safeguard the complete independence and democratic development of the country.
The two sides firmly condemn the Israeli aggressors for their crimes of continuing to illegally occupy Arab territory and expanding their aggression against Arab countries under direct U.S. imperialist support and instigation, and fully support the Arab people In their just struggle to defend national independence and dignity, recover the occupied Arab territory and accomplish the Palestinian people's cause for liberation.
The two sides hold that the national-liberation movements which are now developing vigorously in Asia, Africa and Latin America are one of the mightiest revolutionary forces of our lime. They firmly support all the peoples in these regions who are fighting against imperialism and colonialism headed by the United States and striving for freedom, liberation and national independence.
The two sides express militant .support to the working class and labouring people in the capitalist countries who are waging revolutionary struggles against exploitation and oppression by monopoly capital and for the right to subsistence and for class emancipation.
The two sides hold that today with the daily Intensification of the aggression and new war provocations by the U.S. and Japanese reactionaries, the situation demands that the Chinese and Korean peoples unite and wage a common fight against the enemy. This is of great significance to frustrating and smashing the U.S. imperialist aggressive schemes, safeguarding peace in Asia and the world and vigorously pushing forward the two people's revolution and construction.
The two sides point out with satisfaction that the visit by Comrade Chou En-lai, Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China, to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea has made new contributions to the further strengthening and development of the traditional friendship and co-operation between the Chinese and Korean peoples based on Marxism-Leninism and the principles of proletarian internationalism.
