Pyongyang, August 4 (KCNA) -- Hankuk Ilbo, a daily of south Korea, recently disclosed the sordid nexus between traitor Park Chung-hee, father of the present puppet chief executive of south Korea, and the Mitsubishi Group of Japan.
According to it, Park Chung-hee, during the "presidential election"
held in 1963 in the wake of his seizure of power through "May 16
military coup", received one million U.S. dollars from Mitsubishi as
Moreover, he left arteries of the south Korean economy to the tender
mercy of Mitsubishi, praising the then director of the Mitsubishi
trading firm as an "upright man of great administrative ability."
As a result, the then Mitsubishi Group had virtually monopolized as
early as in the 1960s major projects for "economic development" in south
Korea including the construction of Phohang Iron Works. Consequently,
the south Korean industry was reduced to a dependent sub-contract
industry and a processing base bringing huge profits to the Group.
Lurking behind the "economic cooperation" between the Park Chung-hee
regime and Mitsubishi was a political and business nexus, the daily
notes, adding that a lot of things still remain shrouded in mists.
This information brought to light the true colors of Park Chung-hee as a pro-Japanese lackey.
Mitsubishi should have been sternly punished together with war
criminals in the very day of Japan's defeat for the crimes it
perpetrated by actively supporting the regime's war of aggression and
inflicting untold pain and damage upon Koreans.
But traitor Park made no scruple of joining hands with Mitsubishi in
a bid to stay in power and meet his personal interests, far from
forcing it to make apology and reparation for the crimes.
Moreover, Park also received 1.2 million U.S. dollars from the
Mitsui Group during the 1963 "presidential election" and billions of yen
from Japanese businesses during the 1971 "presidential election" as
He committed an act of treachery by concluding a shackling
"agreement" with Japan in 1965, which helped nearly 100 businesses and
agencies of the latter strike their roots among the economic arteries of
south Korea in 1966.
When recalling the fact that Mitsubishi plundered resources worth at
least 32. 1 million U.S. dollars in south Korea in 1970 alone, it is
not hard to guess how big profits all the Japanese businesses in south
Korea have raked up there so far.
Park Geun Hye is as wicked traitor as her father.
Park Geun Hye is openly talking about "normalization of relations"
with Japan which has desperately refused to make an apology and
reparation for its past crimes.
She is behaving quite contrary to the enmity running high among all
Koreans toward Japan, saying "this year would be a significant one for
improving south Korea-Japan relations."
The south Korean regime did not utter even a word of protest when
Japanese Prime Minister Abe was so arrogant as to bluster that the issue
of comfort women can be settled by paying about three hundred million
yen and south Korea would hold out its hands first if Japan remains
tough in its stand. It also kept mum when Japan conducted open diplomacy
to have its past industrial establishments registered as world cultural
heritages though a lot of Koreans were forced to do slave labor there.
Recently, Mitsubishi refused to make reparation for the loss
suffered by Koreans who had been forced to do slave labor during the
Japanese imperialists' colonial rule over Korea, asserting "compensation
had already been made through the conclusion of the 1965 agreement on
However, the Park Geun Hye regime is keeping mum about it.
Against this backdrop, the regime began sharing even military
information about the DPRK with Japan, holding in real earnest meetings
of various fields including diplomacy, military and economy with Japan
at the instigation of the U.S.
The regime's sycophancy toward Japan is, indeed, the most
humiliating act of sycophancy and hideous act of treachery putting into
the shade not only traitor Park Chung-hee but also the five traitors of
As Hankuk Ilbo took issue with the past conservative ruler's
sycophancy toward Japan, terming it a "matter that should not be
overlooked", what Park Chung-hee and Park Geun Hye committed should be
They should be sternly punished by the nation for kissing Japan, the sworn enemy. -0-
