ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK
http://www.uk-songun.com/index.php email email@example.comLondon 11th of February Juche 105(2016) 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 Committee For Peaceful Reunification of Korea on the Kaesong Industrial Zone:
On the 11th of February the Committee For the Peaceful Reunification issued a statement concerning the serious situation vis a vis the Kaesong Industrial Zone(KIZ) . The south Korean puppets had announced the unilateral suspension of operations at the KIZ , which had long been regarded as a symbol of inter-Korean co-operation and reconciliation. This was an unjust action of the south Korean puppets using the flimsy pretext of the DPRK's H bomb test and the recent successful satellite launch by the DPRK. Both the satellite launch and the H bomb test have absolutely nothing to do the Kaesong complex and were a matter related to the self defence of the DPRK and the development of science and technology in the DPRK.
As the statement of the Committee For the Peaceful Reunification says "The recent provocative measure is a declaration of an end to the last lifeline of the north-south relations, total denial of the June 15 North-South Joint Declaration and a dangerous declaration of a war driving the situation in the Korean Peninsula to the brink of a war"
This foolish action of the Park Geun Hye puppet regime has been clearly dictated by the US imperialists. It is an action that will seriously backfire on the south Korean puppets. As a matter of fact south Korea reaped more benefit from the KIZ than the DPRK ever did . The closure of the KIZ
will lose south Korean companies millons of dollars and put many south Korean workers out of work but the fascist puppet Park Geun Hye regime only cares about the interests of its Yankee overlord . Abiding by Juche and self-reliance the DPRK can withstand sanctions and blockades .
The CPRK has correctly declared that : Firstly, the DPRK will totally block the Military Demarcation Line near the KIZ from 10 am, Feb. 11, 2016, cut off the roads along the west coast in the areas under the control of the north and the south and close the KIZ and declare it as the area under the military control.
Secondly, it will expel all persons of the south side in the KIZ till 5 pm, Feb. 11, 2016.
Thirdly, it will completely freeze all assets including equipment, materials and products of the south Korean enterprises and relevant organs in the KIZ. The persons to be expelled are not allowed to take things out of the zone, except for their personal belongings, and the frozen equipment, materials and will be put under the control of Kaesong City People's Committee.
Fourthly, the military communication and Panmunjom hotline will be cut off the moment the personnel of the south side are expelled.
Fifthly, all workers of the DPRK will leave the KIZ on Feb. 11, 2016
These are just measures to protect the DPRK interests and prevent sabotage, asset stripping and theft by south Korean puppet capitalists.It is the right of the DPRK to seize any property or assets that is on its territory. Moreover the measures takebn are basically a righteous response to the reactionary anti-reunification and anti-DPRK policies. We support and applaud the measures taken by the DPRK to protect its supreme interests and sovereignty.
