Proposal for Founding a Democratic Federal Republic of Koryo
In the report to the Sixth Congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea in October Juche 69 (1980)
The proposal calls for the formation of a unified national government in which the north and the south are represented on an equal footing and under which both sides exercise regional autonomy respectively with equal rights and duties, that is, the establishment of a unified federal state. This means that the country’s reunification should be realized by establishing a federation based on one nation, one state, two systems and two governments. The proposal impartially takes into account the interests of the authorities, the people from all walks of life, every party and every group in the north and the south and advocates the formation of a unified national government which is acceptable to either side, any class and any party without their interests being infringed upon.
The plan for founding the Democratic Federal Republic of Koryo and its ten-point policy arose great sympathy and won support from the people in the north and the south of Korea, as well as from the international community.
