African Committee for Friendship and Solidarity with the Korean People was established
June 30th, 1981 to foster mutual understanding and further the development of
friendship and solidarity between the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea and African
The Committee represents the unanimous desire of all progressive people in the African
continent to strengthen our resolve, friendship and solidarity with the brave and
diligent people of Korea who are in the vanguard of the struggle to create a world free
from all sorts of domination and subjugation.
In the world today, we see consistent maneuvers to tarnish the image of the peaceful and
hardworking people of Korea by imperialistic forces determined to devalue the right of
the people to operate a government of their choice. This unholy campaign is intended to
create negative influences against socialist Korea in the minds of the masses and
peoples of the African continent so as to pollute our collective understanding of the
great achievements of the Nation.
We also see in the world today that the same imperialistic forces are at work
maneuvering to turn the nations of Africa into new colonies with sundry financial baits
designed to check forthwith the advances that the continent and its progressive forces
have made towards national independence and continental self-reliance.
Under these circumstances, it is imperative for the peoples of continental Africa to
further strengthen our friendship and solidarity with the Korean people who stand in the
frontline of the global anti-imperialism struggle.
The Committee is proud to consolidate ties between the Korean people and the nations of
continental Africa advancing through all kinds of difficulties and challenges while
rejecting the interferences and pressures of all outside forces.
At present, being rallied closely behind their leader with firm belief in the victory of
their own cause, the Korean peoples are creating astonishing miracles ever known in all
fields such as politics, economy and national defense, thus gathering the admiration and
praise from various parts of the world. We, in Africa, surely has a lot to learn from
the audacity and sagacity of Korea. To this purpose is the Committee committed.
We regard it as our preferential mission to propagate the righteous struggle and the
true face of Korea, and to heighten our common support and solidarity with each other to
the attainment of freedom, justice, peace, progress and development for our mutual peoples.
