Sites for Ryongsan Base of U.S. Forces to Be Transferred Chosen

Pyongyang, August 27 (KCNA) — The United States and the south Korean authorities decided the places for the relocation of the Ryongsan base of U.S. forces and the base for their Second Division and chose sites for their installations at the 11th “consultative meeting for the future of the south Korea-U.S. alliance policy initiative” on August 20, according to south Korean KBS.

It was agreed that the south Korean government would offer an area of 640,000 phyong near the air force base in Osan where there are major commanding facilities such as the 7th U.S. Air Force and an area of 2,850,000 phyong near the U.S. army base in Phaengsong-up, Phyongthaek City to the U.S. forces side till 2005.

In consequence a total area of 3,490,000 phyong in Kumgak-ri, Hwangguji-ri and Sinjang-dong No.1, Sothan-myon and Todu-ri, Phaengsong-up in Phyongthaek City are to be used as U.S. bases.

History and the nation will mete out a stern judgment to the U.S. for depriving the south Korean people of the land, their means of living, under the pretexts of transfer and relocation of its bases to realize its ambition for aggression and the south Korean authorities for their submissive act of blindly following it.
