SOLIDARITY RESOLUTION ON THE OCCASION OF THE 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE PROVOCATION OF THE FATHERLAND LIBERATION WAR
Seventy years have passed since the US and south Korea provoked the Fatherland Liberation War known as the Korean War in some countries . Today a fragile armistice agreement is in place but no peace treaty has been signed. US troops remain in south Korea and US threats against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea still persist despite the US saying it wants dialogue and negotiations with the DPRK .
Recently the Institute for Disarmament and Peace of DPRK Foreign Ministry issued a paper titled ‘ Withdrawal of U.S. Hostile Policy towards DPRK - Indispensable Prerequisite for Peace and Stability on Korean Peninsula’ which concluded as follows “
Under the condition where the U.S., the biggest nuclear power and the only user of nuclear weapons, clings to the pathological and inveterate hostile policy towards us, while indulging itself in extreme nuclear threats and blackmail, we will continue to further build up our strength to contain the persistent nuclear threats from the U.S. and we will never shrink from this road we have chosen”
This meeting supports the DPRK’s resolve to build its strength to counter the US nuclear threat.
Moreover we demand
Withdrawal of US troops from south Korea
Withdrawal of all US nuclear weapons from the Korean peninsula and adjoining regions
Conclusion of a DPRK -US peace treaty
We support the struggle of the DPRK and also the south Korean people led by the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front of south Korea . We urge that more should be done to expose the criminal nature of the US occupation of south Korea.
