Pyongyang, April 7 (KCNA) — A rally was reportedly held in Seoul on April 2 to check Japan’s move for reviving militarism under the co-sponsorship of the Reunification Solidarity and the National People’s Solidarity of south Korea. Its participants branded Japan’s claim to Tok Islet and distortion of history as a scheme to revive militarism.
Speakers at the rally termed Japan’s claim to the islet and distortion of history part of its moves to revive militarism and accused the United States of zealously backing Japan. They called for displaying the spirit of the nation in the era of reunification after the publication of the June 15 joint declaration to smash Japanese imperialists’ wild ambition and drive the U.S. imperialists out of this land.
A resolution, read out at the rally, denounced Japan’s claim to the islet and distortion of history as a systematic and premeditated machination to veer the whole of Japanese society to the Right and an attempt to justify Japan’s rearmament and realize its wild ambition for world domination.
It charged that the U.S. CIA in a report described Tok Islet as a disputed area, the U.S. secretary of State supported Japan’s bid for permanent membership of the UNSC and the U.S. is closing its eyes to the revival of militarism in an effort to strengthen the alliance with Japan.
The participants tore down flags of the U.S. and Japan in front of the Japanese embassy.
