Pyongyang, April 20 (KCNA) — A seminar on national cooperation against the U.S. was reportedly sponsored by the Reunification Solidarity in Kyonggi Province on April 15.
Speakers there said the strategic flexibility of the U.S. forces present in south Korea meant the extension of their role to that of an aggressive “rapid deployment task force” and offered a revealing insight into the background, purpose and danger of the conversion of the U.S. troops into an “Asian-Pacific task force.”
Recalling the uproar of the commander of the U.S. Eighth Army in south Korea that “the U.S. troops in south Korea might be hurled into any place of the world where they are needed any time” and the plan for the building of a missile base in Inchon following the completion of the deployment of a missile base in Kwangju and the scheme to transfer and expand the U.S. military base in Phyongthaek, they said they were all targeted against Northeast Asia and were a strategy for a preemptive strike at the north.
Referring to the current inter-Korean situation, the speakers said a foundation had been laid for the 70 million fellow countrymen to unite as one for peace, reconciliation and cooperation in the Korean Peninsula with the formation of a preparatory committee for joint functions of Koreans in the north and the south and overseas to implement the June 15 joint declaration.
They underscored the need to carry on the reunification movement more undauntedly through the cohesion of the independence camp and the great unity of all the Koreans.
