Lee Group Accused of Stepping up Construction of Naval Base on Jeju Island
Pyongyang, March 23 (KCNA) -- Members of the Measure Council for Checking the Construction of the Jeju Naval Base in south Korea held a press conference in Seoul on March 20 at which they condemned the group of traitors for frantically stepping up the construction of the naval base.

They accused the military authorities of pushing forward the construction project, seriously polluting the natural environment of Kangjong Village on Jeju Island.

Recalling that people of different social strata are conducting positive activities in solidarity with residents of Jeju Island and peace champions in their just and courageous actions, they called for an intensified campaign against the above-said construction project.

People will punish the Lee Myung Bak regime without fail for its misdoings, they warned.

At the end of the conference, they handed a written protest demanding a halt to the construction to Chongwadae.
