Complete withdrawal of U.S. troops urged

Pyongyang, August 24 (KCNA) — The U.S. ambassador to Japan, Foley, said in a lecture in Washington some time ago that if the issue of security on the Korean peninsula is settled it is proper to examine its effect on the U.S. troops present in Asia.

Commenting on his remarks, Minju Joson on Sunday said:
His utterances reveal the United States’ cunning trick to cover up the colors of its troops as a wrecker of peace and security on the Korean peninsula and keep them in South Korea and other Asian areas.
As long as the U.S. troops remain in those areas, it is impossible to ease the tense situation on the Korean peninsula and its surroundings and expect peace and security.
Nevertheless, the United States has argued that the makeup of its forces in South Korea and other Asian areas will be reexamined after the reunification and peace of the Korean peninsula are achieved.
This shows that the U.S. truly does not want the reunification and peace of Korea, the paper pointed out.
