Pyongyang, July 29 (KCNA) — The south Korean authorities recently decided to take over 15 U.S. military bases with their environment remaining polluted and cover all the costs for their depollution. This is another act of treachery little short of selling off the interests of the nation, yielding to the brigandish demand of the U.S.
A spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland said this in a statement Saturday.
The statement continued:
The south Korean authorities set a precedent of taking over the devastated land that has been used as U.S. military bases, thus forcing south Korea to bear even the cost for the depollution of scores of U.S. military bases to be handed over in the future.
This compelled the south Koreans to suffer the national disgrace of even covering the huge cost for the rehabilitation of polluted environment, far from receiving due compensation from the criminals who devastated their land, lording it over for more than 60 years.
What should not be overlooked is the foolish behavior of south Korea. It unreasonably took issue with the north that has defended south Korea with Songun and suspended even humanitarian aid, yielding to the pressure of its American master. Moreover, it decided to spend a colossal amount of money collected as taxes from people for depollution, not uttering even a word of protest against the U.S. that has reduced half of its territory into a wasteland.
It is a shame on the nation that the south Koreans are still undergoing tragic sufferings under the U.S. military occupation and colonial domination even in the new century, the statement said, calling on the south Koreans from all walks of life to turn out in a vigorous struggle to frustrate the sycophantic authorities’ treacherous moves, have all the U.S. military bases in south Korea dismantled and drive the U.S. forces out of south Korea.
