      10-POINT PROGRAMME OF THE GREAT UNITY OF THE WHOLE NATION
      FOR THE REUNIFICATION OF THE COUNTRY
       
      April 6, 1993
       
       
      To
      put an end to the nearly half a century of division and confrontation
      and reunify the country is the unanimous demand and desire of the whole
      nation. For the independent and peaceful reunification of the country
      it is necessary to achieve the great unity of the whole nation. All
      those who are concerned about the destiny of the nation, whether they
      be in the north, or in the south, or overseas, and whether they be
      communists or nationalists, rich or poor, atheists or believers, must
      unite as one nation, transcending all their differences, and together
      pave the way for national reunification.
      Those
      with strength devoting their strength, those with knowledge giving
      their knowledge and those with money donating their money, all should
      make a tangible contribution to the reunification of the country and
      the development and prosperity of a reunified land, so putting an end
      to national division and displaying the dignity and honour of the
      reunited 70 million fellow countrymen to the world.
      1.
      A unified state, independent, peaceful and neutral, should be founded
      through the great unity of the whole nation.
      The
      north and the south should found a pan-national unified state to
      represent all parties, all groupings and all the members of the nation
      from all walks of life, while leaving the existing two systems and two
      governments intact. The pan-national unified state should be a
      confederal state in which the two regional governments of the north and
      the south are represented equally, and an independent, peaceful and
      nonaligned neutral state which does not lean to any great power.
      2. Unity should be based on patriotism and the spirit of national independence.
      All
      the members of the nation should link their individual destiny with
      that of the nation, love their nation passionately and unite with the
      single desire to defend the independence of the nation. They should
      display dignity and pride in being members of our nation and reject
      sycophancy and national nihilism that erode the nation's consciousness
      of independence.
      3.
      Unity should be achieved on the principle of promoting co-existence,
      co-prosperity and common interests and subordinating everything to the
      cause of national reunification.
      The
      north and the south should recognize and respect the existence of
      different beliefs, ideas and systems, and achieve joint progress and
      prosperity, with neither side encroaching on the other. They should
      promote the interests of the whole nation before regional and class
      interests and direct every effort to the accomplishment of the cause of
      national reunification.
      4.
      All political disputes that foment division and confrontation between
      fellow countrymen should be ended and unity should be achieved.
      The
      north and the south should refrain from seeking or fomenting
      confrontation, end all political disputes between them and stop abusing
      and slandering each other. As fellow countrymen they should not be
      hostile to each other and, through the united efforts of the nation,
      they should counter foreign aggression and interference.
      5.
      The fear of invasion from both south and north, and the ideas of
      prevailing over communism and communization should be dispelled, and
      north and south should believe in each other and unite.
      The
      north and the south should not threaten and invade each other. Neither
      side should try to force its system on the other or to absorb the
      other.
      6.
      The north and south should value democracy and join hands on the road
      to national reunification, without rejecting each other because of
      differences in ideals and principles.
      They
      should guarantee the freedom of debate on and of activities for
      reunification and should not suppress, take reprisals against,
      persecute or punish political opponents. They should not arrest anyone
      because of their pro-north or pro-south tendencies and should release
      and reinstate all political prisoners so that they may contribute to
      the cause of national reunification.
      7.
      The north and south should protect the material and spiritual wealth of
      individuals and organizations and encourage their use for the promotion
      of great national unity.
      Both
      before reunification and after it they should recognize state
      ownership, cooperative ownership and private ownership and protect the
      capital and property of individuals and organizations, as well as all
      interests concerned with foreign capital. They should recognize the
      social reputation and qualifications of individuals in all domains
      including science, education, literature, the arts, public debate, the
      press, health care and sports, and continue to guarantee the benefits
      granted to people who have performed meritorious services.
      8.
      Understanding, trust and unity should be built up across the nation
      through contact, exchange visits and dialogue.
      All
      the obstacles to contact and exchange visits should be removed and the
      door should be opened for everyone without discrimination to undertake
      exchange visits. All the parties, groupings and people of all social
      standings should be given equal opportunities to conduct dialogue, and
      bilateral and multilateral dialogue should be developed.
      9.
      The whole nation, north, south and overseas, should strengthen its
      solidarity for the sake of national reunification.
      Things
      beneficial to national reunification should be supported and encouraged
      in an unbiased manner and things harmful to it should be rejected in
      the north, in the south and overseas, and all should assist and
      cooperate with one another, going beyond their own narrow enclosure.
      All political parties, organizations and the people from all walks of
      life in the north, in the south and overseas should be allied
      organizationally in the patriotic work to achieve national
      reunification.
      10.
      Those who have contributed to the great unity of the nation and to the
      cause of national reunification should be honoured.
      Special
      favours should be granted to those who have performed exploits for the
      sake of the great unity of the nation and the reunification of the
      country, to patriotic martyrs and to their descendants. If those who
      had turned their back on the nation in the past return to the patriotic
      road, repentant of their past, they should be dealt with leniently and
      assessed fairly, according to the contribution they have made to the
      cause of national reunification.
