Rodong Sinmun Accuses Japan of Its Participation in Korean War
|Pyongyang, June 28 (KCNA) -- The Japanese reactionaries provided the U.S. with huge human and material resources after taking part in the Korean War ignited by it.
Rodong Sinmun Thursday says this in a bylined article.
Japan earned an ill fame as a war servant of the U.S. imperialists.
At the U.S. instruction, the Japanese authorities dispatched the first batch of 200 generals and officers of the former Imperial Japanese Army right after the outbreak of the Korean War. Donning uniforms of the south Korean puppet forces, they performed their missions as "advisors" at staffs and other posts.
Many Japanese troops were hurled into the Korean front later.
Among them were members of the Yamasaki institution under the "UN Command" made up of intelligence officers familiar with Korea's topography. At the direct instruction of the U.S. imperialists, they worked out maps and catalogues giving detailed information about not only military strongholds, harbors, factories and hospitals but shapes of facilities and power network in the DPRK.
50 Japanese warships and 2 000 seamen were directly involved in the Inchon-landing operation.
Japan dispatched its pilots to the Korean front. They joined in the U.S. transport of war materiel and air raids in the entire period of the war.
Japanese "technical" personnel provided strong backing to the U.S. military actions in such areas as railway transport of "UN forces," communications, printing, harbors and power stations.
Japan offered its nurses to U.S. forces' field hospitals under the name of a "rescue team". Virtually, they served as comfort women for U.S. forces.
It was none other than the Japanese warmongers who fully supported the U.S. imperialists in their cruel germ warfare and took the lead in it.
This is just part of evidence proving Japan's participation in the Korean War, the article notes, warning that in case the Japanese warlike forces zealously partake of the U.S. imperialists' moves to provoke a war against the DPRK, they will not be able to go scot-free quite contrary to what happened in the 1950s.
