North Korea has urged supporters in South Korea to fight against the ruling Saenuri Party as the presidential election looms. The Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front, an organization in charge of anti-South Korean operations under the Workers Party, issued a pamphlet calling on South Korean supporters to prevent the Saenuri Party from regaining power.
"If Saenuri regains power, a second Korean War will surely break out, to say nothing of worsening inter-Korean relations," it said.
A victory for the opposition, which the pamphlet describes as "supporters of the June 15, 2000 Joint Declaration" that heralded a thaw in inter-Korean ties, "signals not only a full rejuvenation of inter-Korean dialogue and cooperation, but a new prelude to peace and prosperity."
A South Korean security official said the pamphlet must have been produced at the orders of the top echelons of the North Korean regime.
Early this year, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un called for unity of progressive forces in South Korea to defeat the "traitorous clique" -- shorthand for the conservative government here -- through the same organization.
