We, participants in the 20th International Meeting of Communist and Workers' Parties held in Athens, Greece on November 23-25, 2018 express full support for and solidarity with the just cause of the Workers' Party of Korea and the Korean people for realizing an independent and peaceful reunification of Korea and maintaining peace and security on the Korean peninsula.
We welcome the new phase of peace and reconciliation being opened up on the" Korean peninsula thanks to the proactive efforts of the Workers' Party of Korea and the Korean people, aimed at improving the inter-Korean relations, establishing a permanent peace regime on the Korean peninsula and terminating the U.S. hostile policy toward the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).
The just cause of the Workers' Party of Korea and the Korean people to defend the peace and security of the Korean peninsula and build a powerful socialist country constitutes an active contribution to the struggle of Communist and Workers' Parties to secure international justice and peace and victoriously advance the cause of socialism on the global scale.
We resolutely oppose and reject the imperialists' interference in the internal affairs of the Korean nation and their unjust policy of sanctions and pressure against the DPRK,and strongly demand that the U.S. withdraw its policy ofhostility and military threats against the DPRK once and for all.
We hope that the international community will respond positively to the measures taken in good faith by the DPRK toward the ease of tension and reconciliation on the Korean peninsula and call upon all Communist and Workers' Parties and progressive organizations of the world to intensify the international solidarity movement for the just cause of theWorkers' Party of Korea and the Korean people.
