The Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK, Juche Idea Study Group of England and UK Korean Friendship Association issued a joint statement denouncing the indefinite postponement of the transfer of wartime operational by the US to south Korea (known as OPECON):
The U.S. and south Korean puppet authorities, at the recent 46th annual security consultative meeting in Washington, agreed to put off the transfer of OPECON (wartime operation control), which had been scheduled by 2015, almost indefinitely basically giving the US the permanent right of wartime command over the south Korean armed forces.
Control of one's own armed forces is absolutely essential for sovereignty , in fact a natural perquisite for sovereignty . Without the right of command at all times over one's armed forces a state cannot be called a sovereign state.
The fact that the US has indefinitely postponed the transfer of wartime operational control to south Korea proves doubly and triply beyond all doubt that south Korea is not an indeed state , it cannot be an independent state but is a colony of US imperialism. South Korea was created by US imperialism and is today controlled and dominated by the US imperialists in all fields.
The present south Korean puppet regime has shown their true faces as abominable traitors and bootlickers of US imperialism . South Korea is a modern day colony , an anachronism in today's world of independence and national liberation !
Our organisations, the ASSPUK, JISGE and UK KFA , support the statement of the secretariat of the Committe for Peaceful Reunification (no 1077 ) which calls for decisive counter-measures against the postponement of the transfer for OPECON.
Indeed the progressive and peace loving peoples of the world should support the Korean people in their struggle for sovereignty and total independence
