End to U.S. Occupation of S. Korea Urged

Korean Central News Agency of DPRK

    Pyongyang, September 10 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Friday carries a commentary supporting the joint appeal to the south Korean people published by different organizations in the northern half of Korea upon the lapse of 59 years since the U.S. imperialist aggression forces occupied south Korea. Condemning the history of their occupation of south Korea as a history of disasters that has brought a hundred and one misfortunes and sufferings to the Koreans and a history of crimes that has blocked the unified development of the Korean nation and threatened the peace and security of the country, the appeal called upon the south Koreans to turn out daringly in the nationwide anti-U.S. righteous struggle to make the year 2005, the 60th year of the U.S. forces' occupation of south Korea, the year of their withdrawal from south Korea.
    The author of the commentary describes it as an entirely just appeal which fully confirms with the June 15 era of reunification in which the 70 million Koreans are rejecting outside forces and glorifying the dignity and sovereignty of the nation with their concerted efforts and reflects the resolute will of the entire nation not to allow any longer the U.S. imperialists' occupation of south Korea, the leftover of history and injustice
    Noting that it is the vital task of the Korean nation to write finis to their occupation of south Korea, the commentary goes on:
    Holding high the slogan "Let us not allow the U.S. forces to occupy south Korea more than 60 years!" that was put forward in the joint appeal, all the Koreans should intensify the nationwide struggle to drive the U.S. imperialist aggression forces out of south Korea, united close under the banner of the June 15 joint declaration.
    The United States has no excuse or justification to keep its forces in south Korea at a time when the June 15 era of reunification has come and reconciliation and unity, cooperation and exchange are being promoted between the north and the south. The U.S. would be well advised to make a bold decision to pull its forces out of south Korea without delay, mindful that its wild design to dominate Korea is a ridiculous dream that stands no chance of realization and it will touch off a nationwide anti-U.S. resistance of the Korean people.
