ASSPUK, JISGE , UK KFA and UK Preparatory Committee For the 2017 Gathering to Praise the Great Persons Born of Mt Paektu slams British participation in US and south Korean anti -DPRK war games

                      14th of October Juche 105(2016)
The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK),the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE),the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) and the UK Preparatory Committee For the 2017 Gathering to Praise the Great Persons Born of Mt Paektu issued a joint statement slamming the plan to deploy planes of the British Royal Airforce :
    We can only say that we are shocked and outraged by the decision of the British government to send 4 Eurofighter Typhoon combat jets, Voyager tanker aircraft and C-17 Globemaster transport aircraft to take part in the so-called "Invincible  Shield " military exercises  of the US imperialists and south Korean puppets against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea from the 4th of November to the 10th of November. This is just disgraceful .
     The DPRK poses no military threat to Britain , there is absolutely no need for Britain to become
  As the spokesman of the DPRK Foreign Ministry pointed out  "  Britain which forged diplomatic relations with the DPRK on the principle of mutual respect for sovereignty is joining in the anti-DPRK moves of the hostile forces. This can never be overlooked." It is truly shameful that Britain is joining hands with the US imperialists and the south Korean puppets against People's Korea
the homeland of Juche . The fact that Britain is sending military forces to participate in exercises against People's Korea just goes to show the hypocrisy and two faced nature of the reactionary ruling class and  its government.
   This action risks drawing Britain into a military conflict with Korea . To again quote the DPRK
Foreign Ministry " Under the prevailing situation no one can vouch that the military drills would not spill over into an actual war. It is clear, therefore, that all the military means and equipment to be involved in the drills will be put within the sight of the Korean People's Army ". We ask does the British goverment want to throw away the lives of British troops like it did in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Is Britain planning to repeat the criminal and tragic past when in the 1950s British young men were sent to die in Korea on behalf of US imperialism . Britain played a most shameful role when during the 1950s Korean War when British troops were sent to participate in US imperialism's criminal aggression against People's Korea and waged a war against reunfication, against the liberation and independence of the Korean nation.
  It is also a waste of British taxpayers money . The money could be better spent on schools and hospitals.
  We demand there should be no participation by the British Royal Airforce in these criminal and aggressive exercises . There should be a massive campaign by the British labour and peace movement to reverse this ultimate folly. The UK Korean Friendship Association will be picketing the Ministry of Defence on the 3rd of November, we urge everyone to support our picket.
