ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK
26th of June Juche 109(2020)
The Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK), the British Group for the Study of the Juche Idea (BGSJI) , UK Korean Friendship Association (UK KFA ) and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula(BSCPRKP)issued the following joint statement in support of the paper issued on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the provocation of the Fatherland Liberation War by the Institute for Disarmament and Peace, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK ;
The paper of the Institute for Disarmament and Peace, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK lays bare the truth of the aggressive and predatory nature of US hostile policy towards the Democratic People's Republic of Korea(DPRK) , a policy which has persisted for seven decades and has continued from the 20th century to the 21st century .
The paper details how the Korean War (Fatherland Liberation War ) was a product of the US hostile policy towards the DPRK . In fact US aggression and interference in Korea goes back to the 19th century when US warships intruded into Korea. It also details how the US conspired to provoke the Korean War due to its policy of dominating the Korean peninsula and also because of the need to avoid an economic crisis in the US .
The US tried to cover its aggression in Korea by usurping the flag of the United Nations . However as the paper correctly points out " It is not the UN but the U.S. which has the power to appoint the "UN commander." It is not the UN but the U.S. administration which has absolute power to decide on either reduction or increase of the U.S. forces in south Korea that are wearing the helmets of the "UN forces.' but shame is brought on the UN because the UN flag is hanging at Panmunjom.
The Korean War provoked by the US imperialists caused great human and material losses to the Korean people . The atrocities of the US were more savage than those carried out by the Nazis in Europe for example in Sinchon County , the US ' committed all kinds of atrocities of massacre against 35,380-strong innocent residents, equivalent to 25% of the County's population, in 50-plus days. They burnt the innocent residents to death, drowned them in reservoir, shot to death, burnt them on the firewood, ripped apart the limbs of living persons and cut off the abdomens of pregnant women. These facts lay bare before the world that the U.S. imperialists are no less than wild beasts and bloodthirsty wolves in human shape.'
After the end of the war the US systematically undermined the Korean Armistice Agreement and continued with its policy of trying to stifle People's Korea and its socialist system by force of arms. The US hostile policy and threats did not abate after the DPRK-US but rather 'became further aggressive '
Thus the DPRK is compelled to retain and to further enhance its nuclear deterrent because 'The option left was only one, and that was to counter nuclear with nuclear'
We support the independent stance of the DPRK to counter the hostile policy of the US by further bolstering the nuclear deterrent . This is the only way .
If the US really wants peace it should end its anti DPRK hostile policy and withdraw its troops from Korea.
We believe that the DPRK , led by respected Marshal KIM JONG UN , will win final victory over the US .
