On October 24 Alexander Mostov, Chairman of the Coordination Committee of the DPRK International Solidarity Group (DPRK ISG) and Editor-in-Chief of "Bulgeunbyeol TV", met with Denis Miroshnichenko, Chairman of the Supreme Council of the Lugansk People's Republic (LPR).
During the conversation, Comrade Mostov noted that the DPRK recognized both the independence of the LPR and its entry into Russia, and asked how the latter event would affect the development of international relations.
In turn, Mr. Miroshnichenko assured his interlocutor that all plans and agreements reached between the relevant representatives of the LPR and the DPRK remain in force. He especially emphasized the importance of the diplomatic recognition of the LPR by Korea and once again expressed gratitude to the government of the Republic and the Solidarity Group for their contribution to the implementation of international justice.
The full text of the response follows.
“First of all, I would like to thank you for your honest act, because in the modern world of “double standards”, being independent and honest with respect to the truth is very costly. Therefore, in your person, I would like to thank all the people who made decisions to recognize both the independence of the LPR and the fact that we are now part of the Russian Federation.
Whatever the status of the territory, the most important thing is the people. And if people are ready to interact and make plans, then it doesn’t matter what their border will be. It’s just that before that we had the administrative border of a sovereign state, the Luhansk People’s Republic, and now we have a border within the Russian Federation.
The plans that were outlined between the inhabitants of our countries, no one can destroy. Because, I emphasize, the most precious thing that both you and we should have in the world is the truth and the people who work for this truth, live, educate future generations and pass this truth on from generation to generation. And therefore, I am sure that any, in a good sense, mutual benefit both for your country and for our residents will not go anywhere.
Here, however, it is worth once again paying attention to the moral point. Although we live in a world of double standards, where the West can pass off any lie as the truth, you are not afraid to defend justice!”
