Pyongyang, September 8 (KCNA) — U.S. Defense Secretary William Cohen in a press interview a few days ago said that the U.S. troops 100,000 strong deployed in East Asia will be kept for an “indefinite period” even though the Korean peninsula is reunified, according to a news report.
Minju Joson in a commentary today describes his remarks, an undisguised expression of the U.S. invariable “strategy for dominating Asia” and “strong-arm strategy,” as an insult to the sovereignty of the Korean and Asian peoples.
The daily goes on:
The U.S. belligerent forces never let a chance pass by without advocating the “permanent presence” of the U.S. troops in the Korean peninsula and Asia. By often insisting on the U.S. military presence, they are seeking to make it a fait accompli so as to realize their wild ambition for permanent domination without restraint.
The United States should discard their anachronistic ambition for permanent domination over South Korea and the Asia-Pacific region.
