The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK), the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE) and the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) today issued a joint statement in support of the statement of the Foreign Ministry of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea of the 17th of October concerning the conclusion of a peace treaty :
We support this statement which expresses the will and stance of the DPRK to resolve issues peacefully. It is 63 years since the Korean Armistice Agreement was concluded . The armistice agreement was what it says an agreement for the cessation of hostilities not a permanent and binding peace treaty . The DPRK has consistently called for the conclusion of a Peace Treaty between itself and the US. Recently at 70th UN General Assembly the DPRK re-clarified its fair and aboveboard stand to replace the Korean Armistice Agreement (AA) by a peace treaty.
This is a proposal that no one should or indeed can object to . Because of the US
occupation of south Korea and frequent military manoeuvres and provocations against the DPRK the Korean peninsula is like a gunpowder barrel where conflict can ignite within moments. As the DPRK Foreign Ministry says " It is as clear as noonday that if a conflict occurs again in the area along the Military Demarcation Line due to the escalating tension, it will spill over into an uncontrollable all-out war."Concluding a peace treaty and withdrawing US troops from the south of Korea would mean peace and would permanently remove the threat of war.
However rather than taking the road of prudence and peace the US has chosen to ignore the magnanimous stand of the DPRK of urging a peace treaty and instead of sticking to worn out , discredited reactionary policies .
It is only thanks to the increased nuclear deterrence of the DPRK that war on the Korean peninsula has not broken out . Peace is indeed on the bayonets of the Korean Peoples Army the invincible revolutionary armed force.
Our organisations , the ASSPUK, JISGE and UK KFA fully support the call of the DPRK for the conclusion of a permanent peace treaty and condemn the aggressive and reactionary US imperialists for shunning the conclusion of a peace treaty. Should the US persist in their stance they will suffer the consequences as the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK can fight any form of war with the US and win.
