Japanese DM's Junket to S. Korea Rebuffed
Pyongyang, January 14 (KCNA) -- South Korean civic and public organizations at a press conference in Kyonggi Province on Jan. 11 denounced the Japanese defense minister's junket to south Korea aimed at concluding a military agreement.

The organizations in a press release voiced strong opposition to his visit to a fleet command.

The press release held that the action taken by Japan to build legal and institutional mechanisms for boosting military cooperation is designed to justify the Japan "Self-Defense Forces'' advance into the Korean Peninsula and knock a military alliance into shape at an early date.

It demanded the minister stop at once the discussion on the conclusion of the military agreement and go back home.
