Pyongyang, July 29 (KCNA) — A century has passed since the fabrication of the “Taft-Katsura Agreement”, a product of collusion between the U.S. and Japan to invade Korea.
Rodong Sinmun Friday says in a signed commentary carried in this connection:
The U.S. has zealously supported and backed Japan in its moves for reinvasion and militarization in a bid to use it as a shock force in waging the second Korean war while Japan has strongly backed the U.S. and closely cooperated with it in the latter’s hostile policy toward the DPRK and moves for a war of aggression against it in an effort to realize Tokyo’s wild ambition for reinvasion of Korea and old dream of “Greater East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere”.
The U.S. and Japan are tightening their collusion and nexus in pursuing their hostile policy towards the DPRK. Both are the sworn enemies of the Korea nation in the true sense of the words because they have tormented the Koreans and imposed the history of unbearable national tragedy upon them for the last one century.
The U.S. and Japanese reactionaries have worked hard to realize their shameless wild ambition to dominate the DPRK through collusion to invade it. But this is nothing but a day-dream. The Koreans have struggled against the U.S. and Japan’s moves for aggression for last one century. The Korean nation is no longer what used to be in the past when it was so weak as to undergo distress due to the imperialists.
The DPRK is now demonstrating its dignity all over the world as an independent, dignified and powerful nation which no outside force on earth can dare provoke. All the Koreans in the north and the south and overseas will unite as one in the idea of “By our nation itself” to wipe out the outside forces keen on aggression and domination and thus surely bring the day of independent reunification.
The U.S. and Japan should properly understand the might, will and spirit of the Korean nation and behave themselves. The entire Korean nation will hold higher the banner of “By our nation itself” and deter U.S. and Japan from colluding with each other in their moves for aggression and domination over Korea through national cooperation and achieve a final victory in the 100 year-long stand-off with them.
