In behalf of the Filipino people and their revolutionary forces, the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) joins the peace-loving people across the world in applauding the successful summit between Democratic People’s Republic of Korea State Affairs Commission Chairman Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump held last June 12 at the Capella Hotel in Singapore.
The CPP congratulates DPRK leader Kim for advancing the aspiration of the Korean people to attain a respite to the state of war and unify and build peace in the Korean peninsula. That Chairman Kim stood tall beside President Trump is a testament to the strength and resilience of the Korean people, especially in DPRK, who have withstood decades of relentless US agression, sanctions and intimidation by the imperialist superpower.
The DPRK’s reiteration of its commitment to the complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula is a generous offer which helped forge mutual understanding between the US and the DPRK to “join efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean peninsula” and will surely boost efforts to forge more agreements in the future.
The Party hails the successful DPRK-US summit as it bodes well for the momentary easing of tensions in the Korean peninsula brought about by massive and regular military exercises conducted by the US in South Korea and around the peninsula. It has also opened the possibility of the lifting economic sanctions imposed by the US and its allies which have hurt the DPRK economy and its people.
