Projected Building of Naval Base on Jeju Island Opposed

Pyongyang, May 29 (KCNA) — Kim Hye Gyong, representative of the Democratic Workers’ Party of south Korea, at a press conference held on May 26 voiced her opposition to the building of a naval base at Hwasun Port on Jeju Island, according to the south Korean CBS.

In case a naval base is built there, the island can not but be reduced to a U.S. outpost for carrying out its new military strategy, she said.

This plan is quite contrary to the people’s desire to make the island a tranquil one, she noted, demanding the total cancellation of the plan.
