The US is putting a brake on inter-Korean relations when the Korean nation is advancing towards peace and co-prosperity, Gong Eun-hee con-representative of the Busan Solidarity for People’s Sovereignty said. Gong urged the US to lift sanctions against north Korea and dissolve the south Korea-US Working Group interfering in the south-north ties.
Vehemently denouncing the south Korea-US joint military exercises inviting the dark cloud of war to the Korean Peninsula, Gong claimed the immediate withdrawal of the US troops from south Korea.
They attached seizure notes upon the wall of the US military base and launched anti-US action, chanting slogans against the US.
A declaration of struggle against the US in 2019 was read out on the day.
The declaration demanded the US forces in south Korea, which violates national sovereignty and the process of Korea’s reunification, to withdraw from south Korea, the total suspension of south Korea-US joint military games and the cancellation of the introduction of war hardware into the Korean Peninsula.
