“We sincerely welcome the decision to hold a North-South Korea summit at a time when the six-party talks on North Korea’s nuclear programs is making progress.

This summit is very significant for ensuring Northeast Asian peace and security. The JCP sincerely hopes for its success.” - Akahata, August 9, 2007
