The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK) , Juche Idea Study Group of England (JISGE) and UK Korean Friendship Association (UK KFA) today issued a joint statement in support of the statement of the DPRK Foreign Ministry on the deployment of THAAD by the US imperialists in south Korea:
The deployment of the THAAD(the so-called Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) missiles in south Korea by the US imperialists will greatly increase tension on the Korean peninsula and the surrounding region indeed it will mean a constant upward spiral in tension . The US plans to establish THAAD in south Korea as a means of mounting a pre-emptive strike on the DPRK and to threaten countries like Russia and China which are seen as rivals to the US . THAAD will also be a means of increasing US domination and control in south Korea and the creation of a NATO style structure in East Asia. The Cold War considered dead in Europe will become a permanent feature of East
The deployment of THAAD in south Korea should be cancelled. Moreover the DPRK is absolutely
correct to continue to bolster its deterrent forces in order to counter the threat posed by
the deployment of THAAD.
