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 British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification in Korea (BSCPRKP) issued a joint statement concerning the renegotiations for the so-called 'Free Trade Agreement ' between the US and south Korea :
As revealed by a statement of a spokesman for the DPRK National Economic Co-Operation Committee recently Trump let the U.S. trade mission unilaterally notify the south Korean authorities that it would get into the procedures for the re-negotiations over FTA and, accordingly, south Korea was forced into sitting before the humiliating negotiating table. The DPRK National Economic Co-operation Committee rightly pointed out that "The recent unilateral notification concerning the FTA renegotiations by Trump clearly proves the impudent nature of the U.S. indifferent to the destiny of a colonial stooge for its own interests ... By nature, the south Korea-U.S. FTA was signed as traitor Lee Myung Bak yielded to the U.S. pressure, and it is an unequal and traitorous "agreement" nothing helpful to the people's livelihood"
This is indeed very true. So-called FTA's such as the one between the US and south Korea are always a disaster for the people. FTA's are at the same time an instrument and product of globalisation . FTA's wreck economies and cause mass unemployment . Moreover they subvert and strangle economic independence and also favour big countries at the expense of small countries.
The US is not a friend or helper of south Korea but the strangler of its independence as well as its chief exploiter and oppressor .
The south Korean people need to establish Juche and chase out the US imperialists. South Korea needs economic independence .Instead of 'Free Trade Agreements with the US and other imperialists south Korea should take the road of Juche-based economic independence and also the road of inter-Korean co-operation.
