UK KOREAN FRIENDSHIP ASSOCIATION
The UK Korean Friendship Association today issued a statement condeming the provocative anti-DPRK remarks of British Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson.
Williamson said in an interview with the "Evening Standard " that“North Korea is a massive threat. They are a real danger to this
country. They are currently on the pathway to have ballistic missiles
that could strike London."
This is a complete travesty of the truth and a provocation to the DPRK.
The DPRK does not pose a threat to the UK and the DPRK's missiles do
not target the UK . Only the US and Japan are defined as sworn enemies
of the DPRK .
Williamson's remarks are reminiscent of old Cold
War 'The Russians are coming ' remarks or worse still the claim made
before the Iraq war that Iraq had missiles that could reach London in 45
The Defence Secretary and the media are aiming at
stirring up up anti DPRK hysteria and phobia and preparing the public
for the participation of British forces in a second Korean War.
Willamson also announced the deployment of 2 British Royal Navy warships to Korean waters. This is a foolhardy act of joining hands with the US imperialists in preparations for a war against People's Korea.
UK KFA totally condemns Williamson's hysterical anti-DPRK tirade and the decision to deploy British warships in Korean waters.
Britain must not join hands with the US against People's Korea and must stay out of Korea .
