The US policy for world hegemony is a barrier to the national sovereignty and peace of the Korean Peninsula, it stressed in a joint resolution. It called for the people to stand square against the US unjust pressure.
If the south Korean authorities give up the principle of national independence and depend on the foreign force, inter-Korean relationship has no hope of recovery, religious and labor organizations in Gwangju said at a press conference.
