Pyongyang, November 25 (KCNA) — The South Korean authorities have been actively involved in the U.S. “Strategic Defense Initiative” (SDI) since 1987, according to a news report from Seoul.
The U.S. going ahead with the research into the “SDI” from early in the 1980s, wooed the South Korean authorities to participate in it. They sent “research groups” to the U.S. two times in 1987.
At that time the U.S. forced the South Korean authorities to sign an agreement on preserving “military patent and secret”.
Yielding to this, they had a “detailed discussion” on it.
This was followed by the making of a “report of the research group” aimed at getting South Korea involved in the “SDI” in the 2000s with the “Agency of Science and Technology” as a main participant.
The U.S. demanded the formation of a “joint research team” for the “Theatre Missile Defense” system in the 1990s, too.
