Kim Il Sung has the following vision for a post-unification nation.
With regard to the post-unification state organization, North Korea has consistently advocated the establishment of a federal state. The initiative was first launched by Pyongyang in 1960, and was progressively approved at the Sixth Labor Party Congress in 1980, according to Kim Il Sung. It proposes the establishment of a federal republic based on mutual recognition of the system, and forms a single government, with the North-South Representative serving as a minister and the mutual recognition of ideology and the North-South government. North and South, which have the same rights and obligations, have their own local autonomy. ”
The Labor Newspaper, 1989, explained the concept and stated that the proposal states, “North and southern countries are not considered as independent states, but as two regions of a single state. Not as an independent government with
The “ Koryo Democratic Republic ” proposed by North Korea as the name of a new nation will be a neutral and non-aligned nation, and the North and South rejected a military alliance with a third country and created a national army that “ integrated ” both countries, It is said to be under the control of the government.

On March 26, 1989, under a vault of the Protestant Bonsu Church in Pyongyang, a storm of applause rang before the Easter worship service. North Korean Christian Alliance leaders and about two hundred followers were applauding to welcome Rev. Moonik-hwan, one of the spiritual leaders of the Korean National Ethnic Democratic Union. Pastor Pyongyang’s entry into Pyongyang was proposed by Kim Il-sung.Beyond this, Kim Il-sung in the beginning of the year taught the Korean ruling and opposition leaders, Rev. Wen, and other representatives of the Korean democratic group about the North-South unification issue. He had been entering Pyongyang to participate in a political co-operation meeting between the two leaders to be discussed.
One of the leaders of the National Assembly of the Church of the United States, Rev. Li Sunnman, a foreign resident overseas, preached at the Bonsu Church’s main festival, and a strong peace came to this land, and love and reconciliation for his brothers achieved ethnic consensus and unity He expressed hope that families separated in the Korean War could be reopened. By the way, in the fall of 1991, Rev. Li became president of the American Church Congress, and it can be said that North Korean and American contact on the church line was established at the highest level.
After nearly two hours of worship, Rev. Weng-Hwan was greeted with enthusiastic applause, and the behavior of southern youth and workers was directed toward unity of the motherland. He reminded him of sacrifices and called on the delegates to devote themselves to the cause of unity.
In a brief conversation with me, Rev. Wen emphasized that this visit to North Korea was made without permission from the South Korean authorities and was solely driven by his enthusiasm for promoting national reunification.
Rev. Wen Dae-yeon, a pastor in the United States, also preached. In an interview with Rev. Wen, he emphasized that this was the first time since 1945 when the delegation of the clergy of Kyoho in the United States visited North Korea.
“For foreign Christians, Pyongyang was like Jerusalem in the Orient. Pyongyang was the country with the most Christian churches and worshipers, but during the Korean War the church buildings were ruined. Revisits the sacred site and feels like a Pilgrim (who went to the United States on the Mayflower). We want to help us explore the path of national reunification. Some of us head to Seoul via Pyongyang via Manchu-ri, China, home to about 2 million Koreans … ”
This Easter worship was of great interest to both locals and foreign press. For a long time, American delegations had seized the latest Japanese-made video cameras, cameras, and tape recorders in their place instead of the Bible, which underscored the first Easter anomaly since the late forties. I was
On the night of December 25, 1988, a prayer ceremony for the Nativity Festival was held at the Changchun Catholic Cathedral in East Pyongyang on December 25, 1988, under the flash of the light of the shooting and the flash of the photographer. Was the focus of not only followers but also video cameras and cameras from inside and outside press. The unusual sight of a church ceremony with cameras being released was due to the special circumstances that Christmas was resurrected openly in this country for the first time in forty years. After the Korean War, not only the churches, but also the town itself in Pyongyang was almost ruined, and there were no buildings for Christmas ceremonies. (Ibid.)
