Pyongyang, July 26 (KCNA) — The 81st Friday meeting against the U.S. and war and for the withdrawal of its forces reportedly took place on July 22 near the U.S. embassy in Seoul under the sponsorship of the Solidarity Council against the U.S. and War and for the Withdrawal of the U.S. Forces in south Korea.
Speakers at the meeting accused the U.S. forces in south Korea of contemplating creating their “Northeast Asia Air force Combat Command” in their air force base in Osan.
They bitterly denounced this move of the U.S. forces, holding that this can not be interpreted otherwise than an intention to start an actual nuclear war on the Korean Peninsula.
A resolution read out at the meeting charged that the above-said plan is aimed to use that place as the only overseas air force combat command in the Asia-Pacific region, turn the second army division into a “future-oriented division” and put all the combat forces under a “future-oriented combat system” whereby they are capable of operating as rapid task forces.
The U.S. should bear in mind that if it persists in its frantic war preparations, far from sincerely approaching the issues of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula and discussing disarmament for its peace, the Korean nation will never pardon it, the resolution warned.
