ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK
24th of September Juche 110 (2021)
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 a joint statement in support of the press statement issued by comrade Ri Thae Song , vice Foreign Minister of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea on the 23rd of September;
In regard to the recent speech of the south Korean chief executive at the UN General Assembly which called for a formal ' End of War Declaration ' for the Korean peninsula , comrade Ri Thae Song , DPRK vice Foreign minister made a statement which clarified the DPRK's stance on the issue particularly in regard to the US hostile policy towards the DPRK .
Whilst an ' End of War Declaration ' for the Korean peninsula is desirable and indeed admirable , it requires concrete measures to make it possible otherwise it will simply be formalistic and ceremonial . In particular a new peacekeeping mechanism would need to be established on the Korean peninsula .
The call for an 'End of War ' declaration has come at a time when there have been many hostile moves aimed at the DPRK such as the termination of the U.S.-south Korea missile guidelines , the transfer of military hardware to south Korea as well as missile tess by both the US and south Korea. Moreover the US has recently announced the controversial and contentious AUKUS pact which is a threat to the DPRK .
For an 'End of War Declaration ' to be binding and to have force and meaning , the US hostile policy towards the DPRK must be ended first and a peace keeping mechanism established on the Korean peninsula .
We support the call for an end to the US hostile policy and for a peace keeping mechanism to be established on the Korean peninsula .
