The preparatory committee for building the 16th-term south Korean Federation of University Student Councils made public a statement on March 5 strongly denouncing the formation of the south Korea-U.S.-Japan defence research institute coordinating committee.
The statement recalled that defence research organs of the U.S., Japan and south Korea got together on Feb. 19 and agreed to form the "coordinating committee" and develop it into a "model of new international cooperation".
They also adopted a "joint declaration" stating that south Korea, the U.S. and Japan shall take a joint military countermeasure in case any event of threatening security takes place in the Korean Peninsula and its vicinities, it pointed out.
The bellicose forces of the U.S., Japan and south Korea, the statement said, have decided to build a new military cooperation system and, at the same time, work out a concrete military action plan for mobilizing their armies for cooperation in case of "emergency" and stage various forms of exercises to this end from June 1.
The moves for intensifying the "triangular military alliance" sought by the U.S. have entered a full stage, it said, adding that this increases the danger of invasion on the north while laying a grave obstacle to achieving peace on the Korean Peninsula.
If the conservative hardliners of the U.S. and Japan persist in the moves for a war against the north despite the warnings of the Korean nation, they will be doomed to destruction, the statement said.
It urged the bellicose forces of the south Korean military to maintain the stand for peace and scrap the aggressive "alliance" with the U.S. and Japan.
Japanese Government Urged to
Make Official Apology and Reparation
Members of the women´s and human rights organizations in south Korea including the Council for the Solution of the Issue of the Volunteers Corps and victims of the sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army held the 803rd Wednesday rally in Seoul on March 5 at which they demanded the Japanese government make an official apology and reparation for the issue of "comfort women".
Speakers at the rally condemned the Japanese government for challenging the world conscience urging it to make an apology and reparation for the crimes related to the sexual slavery enforced by the Imperial Japanese Army in the past, while denying them.
They accused the south Korean "government" of shutting eyes to the misfortune and sufferings of the people, far from judging Japan´s crimes against humankind.
Stressing the need to solve the issue of "comfort women" to settle the grudge of the victims, they urged the "government" to strive hard to force Japan to make an official apology and reparation for the above-said crimes.
S. Korean Organizations Urge U.S. to
Conclude Peace Agreement with DPRK
Members of civic and public organizations from various circles including the south Korean Solidarity for Progress, the People for Achieving Peace and Reunification and the south Korean Confederation of Trade Unions held a press conference in Seoul on Mar. 6.
A press release read out at the conference accused the south Korean and the U.S. warmongers of staging the "combined tactical drill for setting up a bridge" as part of the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint war exercises near the large bridge in Haengju of Seoul on the same day.
The drill was aimed at carrying out a river-crossing operation, the press release noted, adding it has become clearer the exercises were designed to invade the north, not for "defence".
It urged the U.S. not to persist in the war exercises for aggression deepening the crisis of war on the Korean Peninsula but opt for concluding a peace agreement with the DPRK.
U.S.-S. Korea War Exercises under Fire
Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises, large-scale war exercises for invading the DPRK, staged by the U.S. and south Korean bellicose forces from March 2 to 7 were extremely provocative and adventurous saber rattling aimed at creating new military tension on the Korean Peninsula and gravely threatening peace and the cause of reunification as they were a dangerous nuclear test war to invade and stifle the DPRK, Rodong Sinmun on Mar. 10 observes this in a signed commentary.
It goes on:
The recent joint military exercises were staged under the simulated conditions of a preemptive attack on the DPRK after deploying huge forces and nuclear attack means in the sky, ground and seas. They were the maneuvers for an actual war as they were aimed at examining and rounding off the capability to carry out the dangerous war scenario for a preemptive nuclear attack on the DPRK which had already been worked out.
What merits a serious attention is the fact that the U.S. openly staged the nuclear war exercises targeted against the DPRK at a time when both are in the process of dialogue and the undertaking to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula is now under way.
One cannot but draw a conclusion, in the final analysis, that for all its noisy talk about "dialogue" and "peaceful solution" the U.S. is, in actuality, not willing to honor its commitments and its fine sounding advertisement is nothing but a ruse to cover up its wild design to invade the DPRK.
It is becoming clearer day by day that the ulterior aim of the U.S. is not to seek a negotiated solution of the issue but settle it by means of military threat, pressure and war against the DPRK.
No wonder, the above mentioned warmongers exceptionally opened to the press the armed forces mobilized in the war exercises and then proceeding in a bid to demonstrate their military muscle.
All facts go to prove that "dialogue" and "peace" much touted by the U.S. and south Korea is nothing but a smokescreen to deceive the world public and cover up their war moves against the DPRK and disarm and militarily stifle it.
