Pyongyang, January 13 (KCNA) — The Korean Peninsula is the only cold war area in the world at present and this Cold War system must be removed at an early date.
Rodong Sinmun today says this in a signed article.
The Cold War system still remains in the Korean Peninsula owing to the United States, which is seeking to keep it and, on this basis, realize its strategy of aggression on korea and the rest of Asia, the paper points out, and says:
One of the main points of the system existing in the Peninsula is U.S. military forces and bases in South Korea.
When the U.S. troops are removed from South Korea, a decisive phase will be opened for relaxation of the military confrontation and for durable peace in the Peninsula.
What is also important in terminating the Cold War system in this area is to dismantle the “U.N. Command” in South Korea.
The “U.N. Command” is, in essence, the U.S. Forces Command. That is why the U.S. is obliged to dismantle it.
The United States must carry out its obligation and the U.N. resolution calling for the dissolution of the “U.N. Command”.
The Korean armistice system should be replaced with a peace-keeping system, which is an important way for putting an end to the cold war system in the Peninsula.
Only when this outdated system, which has been reduced to a mere name due to the U.S. irresponsible deed, is replaced by a peace-keeping mechanism, is it possible to remove the state of armistice between the DPRK and the U.S. and prevent recurrence of war.
There are a lot of things for the U.S. to do in removing the present cold war system in the Korean Peninsula.
The U.S. should sincerely do what it has to do.
Then, confidence in it in relations with the DPRK will be built and a prospect will be opened for improvement of the DPRK-U.S. relations and for the settlement of the Korean issue.
