US Urged to Conclude Peace Treaty with DPRK-KCNA

US Urged to Conclude Peace Treaty with DPRK

Pyongyang, July 23 (KCNA) -- Riyad Chaloub, chairman of the Guinean National Committee for the Study of the Juche Idea, issued a statement on July 16 on the occasion of the June 25-July 27 month of anti-U.S. joint struggle.

This year sees the lapse of 60 years after the outbreak of the Korean War, the statement noted, and said:

The U.S., which boasted of being the "strongest" in the world as it suffered not a single defeat in more than 110 wars of aggression it fought, hurled into the Korean War one third of its ground forces, one fifth of air force and most of the Pacific fleet and troops of 15 satellite countries as well as the south Korean puppet army and remnants of the Imperial Japanese Army. And it used even chemical and germ weapons without hesitation to kill many Koreans.

But it sustained a crushing defeat for the first time in its history by President Kim Il Sung's unique military idea and superb strategy and tactics, and could not but kneel down before the Korean people and sign the Armistice Agreement on July 27, 1953.

The U.S. has constantly escalated the tension on the Korean Peninsula for the past decades. A particular mention should be made of the fact that it introduced nuclear weapons into south Korea and instigated the south Korean authorities to build concrete wall in the area south of the Military Demarcation Line with an aim to keep Korea divided into the north and the south for an indefinite period.

We vehemently reject the U.S. forces' presence in south Korea and the puppet government's separatist moves so as to ensure peace on the peninsula.

We strongly urge the U.S. to withdraw its armed forces from south Korea at once and unconditionally respond to the DPRK's proposal for concluding a peace treaty.
