Pyongyang, July 20 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Panmunjom Mission of the Korean People's Army (KPA) issued a statement on Wednesday, sixty six years since the U.S. usurped the OPECON of the south Korean puppet army.
The statement said:
The so-called "Taejon Agreement" was concluded in July 1950 due to
the U.S. wicked design for realizing its military domination over the
whole of Korea and the Syngman Rhee traitorous clique's foolish dream
about a "north expedition" with its master's backing.
The agreement was recorded in the history of national division as
tragedy and shame in which the U.S. imperialist aggression forces'
exercise of the south Korean puppet army's OPECON is guaranteed by
One of the main reasons why the world points south Korea as the
complete U.S. colony and its 51st state is that the former has been
subject to humiliation of having transferred the elementary military
right to the outsiders over sixty six years, century after century.
Today when power precisely means justice, nothing is more foolish and miserable to entrust one's destiny to others.
It is none other than the south Korean puppet army, subsidiary
troops which can not act at will even a moment without the approval and
permission of the U.S. imperialist aggression forces in south Korea
going under the mask of the "UN Forces", and the land of darkness is
exactly south Korea as it can make no protest even if it is mercilessly
trampled down under the boots and armored vehicles of the brigandish
Whenever the south Korean people turned out in an action against the
U.S., the latter left no means untried to maintain the OPECON, main
means for its permanent presence in south Korea, at any cost.
The U.S. imperialists made public without any hesitation their
intention to postpone the period of transfer of the OPECON for an
indefinite period until the puppet forces provide three conditions:
"creation of security climate" on the Korean peninsula, its "attainment
of major military capacities" and its "attainment of ability for coping
with the north's nuclear weapons and missiles" by instigating the Park
Geun Hye group of traitors to stop the controversial issue of transfer
of the OPECON from being snow-balled.
The U.S. is mulling keeping control of the OPECON at any cost even
by making a cock-and-bull and impudent excuses which can never work on
anyone as it has a sinister scheme which it cannot abandon the OPECON.
In case the U.S. imperialists transfer the OPECON to the puppet
forces, they will lose not only the pretext for staying in south Korea
but also the excuse for interfering in the Korean issue.
The south Korean puppet forces are getting more and more dependent
on the U.S. with their ambition to stand in confrontation with the
fellow countrymen in the north and realize their daydream about
"unification through absorption" at any cost with the help of their
The dark curtain behind the OPECON is nothing but a clear indictment
showing how persistent the U.S. imperialists' hostile policy toward the
DPRK and south Korean puppet forces' moves for confrontation with it
are and how scandalous the sordid burlesque waged by the master and its
stooge to meet their interests is.
The U.S. imperialists and south Korean puppet forces would be well advised to properly face up to the trend of the times.
The KPA already solemnly declared that the U.S. imperialist
aggression forces in south Korea are its first strike target and the
puppet traitors following them would also meet the same fate.
The U.S. should go back home, abandoning its wicked intention for
permanent stay in south Korea. This only would be a wise option for
evading the coming final ruin even for a moment. -0-
