ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK
The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK (ASSPUK) , the British Group for the Study of the Juche Idea, the UK Korean Friendship Association (UK KFA ) ,and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification in Korea (BSCPRKP)) ,issued the following joint statement denouncing the holding of RIMPAC 2020:
We denounce the RIMPAC aggressive exercises of the US imperialists against the Democratic Peoples' Republic of Korea to be staged from the 17th of August to the 31st of August , a period of four days.
RIMPAC is an aggressive exercise which is widely believed to target the Democratic People's Republic of Korea(DPRK) and neighbouring countries.
The biennial RIMPAC joint military exercises are in pursuance of the U.S. imperialists' aggression policy to attain its scenario of stifling the DPRK by blockading it from the sea. The exercises are part of a premeditated plan to the US to not only stifle independent Juche socialism by force but to dominate and control the whole Asia-Pacific region.
A total of 9 countries including Japan and south Korea are participating in RIMPAC 2020.
. The RIMPAC exercises have assembled a so -called multi-national "coalition " to attack and crush the DPRK. It is very reminiscent of the so-called UN forces in the last Korean war which consisted of the satellite states of US imperialism. Any state participating in RIMPAC in joining hands in the anti DPRK moves of the US imperialists as well helping US imperialism in its strategy to control the Asia-Pacific region.
As British progressives we note that the British Royal Navy will participate in the exercises .This is an unfriendly and hostile action by the British authorities in addition to the recent sanctions imposed by Britain on the DPRK . We demand that Britain does not participate in the exercises.
We demand the RIMPAC exercises are cancelled at once and that the USA should honour the obligations it made in summits with the DPRK
