Japan should be forced to pay for its crimes

Pyongyang, November 17 (KCNA) — The Japanese fabricated the “five-point treaty of 1905”, the unheard-of fraudulent document on November 17, 94 years ago.


Rodong Sinmun today in a signed article says that history does not know such ferocious aggressors as the Japanese who concocted treaties between countries to achieve their aggressive aim.

The “five-point treaty of 1905” was a fraudulent document fabricated by the Japanese imperialists through coercion and threat despite strong opposition of Korea, the article says, and goes on:

It was by the strength of such illegal and high-handed “treaty” that the Japanese illegally occupied Korea and killed more than one million innocent Korean people in cold-blood, carried off more than 6 million young and middle-aged Koreans for use as expendable in their aggressive war and savagely massacred them and committed such unethical crime as walking away at least 200,000 Korean women to use them as sexual slaves for the “imperial army.”

They not only plundered Korea of timber, ores and minerals, food, cultural heritage, gold and silver but looted bronze bowls, spoons and chopsticks of its families.

The sufferings and miseries inflicted by them upon the Korean people still remain unhealed although half a century has passed.

Japan seeks to greet a new century without liquidating the hideous crimes committed by the Japanese imperialists in the past and is making more desperate efforts to evade its responsibility.

Noting that its aim is to repeat its crime-woven past, the commentary says that the Japanese reactionaries have become more undisguised in their moves to realize the old dream of “Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere.”

Still fresh in the memory of the Korean people and army are the crimes committed by the Japanese against Korea. When an opportunity presents itself to settle accounts with Japan, they will certainly make them pay for all the crimes committed in one century: Those committed during over 40 years of its colonial rule over Korea and during the Korean War and anti-DPRK hostile maneuvers after the war and all others.
