U.S. Policy of Occupation of South Korea under Fire

    Pyongyang, March 1 (KCNA) -- The U.S. imperialists' occupation of south Korea is an offspring of the aggressive Asia strategy of the United States. It is an outrageous infringement upon sovereignty trampling underfoot the demand and desire of the entire Korean nation for national independence and sovereignty and is the biggest crime in converting south Korea into a dark land of fascism and blocking the reunification and independent development of the Korean nation.
    Rodong Sinmun says this in a signed article today, which goes on:
    The occupation policy is a colonial policy that has reduced south Korea to their complete colony and the people there to slaves, a fascist policy that tramples upon the desire and demand of the south Koreans for justice and progress, human rights and democracy and also an aggressive policy of vices to keep Korea forever as a foothold for the realization of their strategic interests, going against the desire of the Korean nation for a unified development and prosperity of the country.
    The U.S. imperialists over the last six decades have worked maliciously to suppress and obliterate the struggle of the Korean nation for the reunification of the country.
    Whenever a favorable atmosphere was created for reconciliation between the north and the south and the reunification of the country, the U.S. deliberately fostered north-south confrontation and increased the danger of war, persisting in maneuvers against the DPRK and the reunification of Korea.
    It was owing to the U.S. imperialists that the July 4 joint statement agreed upon between the north and the south and declared to the world failed to pay off and the north-south joint declaration on denuclearization ended in a dead letter.
    It has become crystal clear that the U.S imperialists, displeased with the June 15 joint declaration in which the two parts of Korea promised to resolve the reunification issue by united efforts, have hindered its implementation in every step. Urged by the heinous intention to provoke a nuclear war against the DPRK, the U.S. even carried out an exercise of dropping mock nuclear warheads in its military base in south Korea. This makes it easy to guess where lies the true purpose of the U.S. policy of occupation of south Korea.
    All the Koreans in the north, the south and overseas should turn out in the nationwide anti-U.S. struggle for ending its policy of occupation of south Korea with the might of the three forms of cooperation -- cooperation for national independence, cooperation for peace against war and cooperation for reunification and patriotism -- under the patriotic slogan "Let us not allow the U.S. forces to stay in south Korea more than six decades!"
