Pyongyang, May 31 (KCNA) — South Korean organizations reportedly called a joint press conference on May 27 and made public a letter of protest to the commander of the U.S. forces present in south Korea.
They were the Reunification Solidarity, the South Headquarters of the National Alliance for the Country’s Reunification, the People for Achieving Peace and Reunification, the Phaengsong-up Measure Committee for Opposing the Expansion of the U.S. Military Base and the Kwangju-South Jolla Provincial Measure Committee for Shutdown of U.S.”Patriot” Base at Kwangju Airport and the withdrawal of the U.S.Forces.
The U.S. forces are a cancer-like existence which has brought misfortunes of all descriptions to the Korean nation, occupying this land over the last six decades, the letter said, and continued:
The U.S. openly declared a highly dangerous plan of a nuclear attack on the Korean nation and is bringing the situation on the Korean Peninsula to a high pitch of strain so as to realize its despicable ambition for world supremacy in disregard of the struggle of various social strata bitterly denouncing its all manner of disgraceful behavior and war moves.
The U.S. gravely violated democracy by bringing a dictatorial “government” on the scene in south Korea and is now fostering inter-Korean military confrontation.
We have never transferred or lent operational commandership to the commander of the U.S. forces stationed in south Korea.
The commander should immediately surrender the wartime operational commandership and the U.S. should withdraw its forces from south Korea at once.
