South Korea Urged To Reject U.S. Troop Dispatch

S. Korean Authorities Urged to Reject U.S. Demand for Troop Dispatch

Pyongyang, September 15 (KCNA) -- The south Korean authorities are reportedly talking about dispatching 1,200 additional troops to Iraq including 800 combat troops of a special warfare division, yielding to the U.S. pressure.

Rodong Sinmun today in a signed commentary says that this can not but be a mean pro-U.S. subservient act and an anti-people and anti-national criminal act lashing the whole nation into a fury. The commentary goes on:

The Grand National Party zealously hailed the additional troop dispatch to Iraq, praising it as a "positive step." This has brought into bolder relief once again the pro-U.S. flunkeyist and traitorous nature of this party which stoops to any infamy in serving the U.S., its master.

Submission to foreign forces in disregard of the dignity and the interests of the nation would lead the nation to disgraceful ruin and death.

The south Korean authorities should ponder over the grave consequences to be entailed by their traitorous troop dispatch to Iraq and resolutely reject the U.S. demand for it.

All the nation is closely following the south Korean authorities' attitude.
