The WPC expresses its strong condemnation to the recent statement of US President Biden in which he openly threatens the DPR of Korea to end its existence. The escalation of threats and sanctions comes along with military drills of the USA with its allies from the region around the Korean Peninsula, with sanctions and coercive, unilateral illegal actions against the sovereignty of the DPRK and its people. The USA has never given up its strategy to deploy tens of thousands troops in South Korea, a Missile Defense Shield (THAAD) and heavy weaponry which, together with the 7th US Fleet in the Pacific Ocean, constitute the main threat to peace and security in the region. The imperialist plans of the US and its allies with the “Quadrilateral Cooperation” and the “AUKUS” are proof for the offensive plans towards the region.
The World Peace Council defends the right of every country to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity and supports the peaceful reunification of the Korean Peninsula along with our firm position for the abolition of all nuclear weapons worldwide.
