Lee Myung Bak's Tour of Tok Islets under Fire
| Pyongyang, August 17 (KCNA) -- Traitor Lee Myung Bak of south Korea reportedly toured Tok Islets some days ago.
In this regard, KCNA met Dr. Kang Chol, a department head of Kim Il Sung University.
"Traitor Lee Myung Bak toured Tok Islets some days ago, but this is not indicative of the change of his pro-Japanese flunkeyism.
It was well illustrated by the remarks of Ishihara, secretary general of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) of Japan, who is an ultra-rightist conservative.
It was reported that Ishihara said if the LDP took power Lee's tour of the islets would never happen, because Lee is a native of Japan.
Ishihara criticized the government and ruling party over the most acute territorial dispute, but he complimented Lee for his pro-Japanese nature.
China's Xinhua quoted public opinion as saying that Lee's visit to the islets in the closing days of his power was undoubtedly motivated by a political purpose and was intended to calm down local people's displeasure with the present regime's policy towards Japan.
Some days ago, it was made public that in 1965 Park Chung-Hee, a pro-Japanese dictator of south Korea, said he wanted to remove Tok islets by blowing them off.
Traitor Lee Myung Bak was apparently pressurized to visit the islets by Park Geun Hye and the "Saenuri Party" of south Korea, thrown into a discomfiture by the revelation of Park Chung-Hee's remarks.
After visiting the islets, he said that he did not intend to take on the nerve of Japan and stand against it and that there was no change in south Korea's diplomatic policy towards Japan, which is illustrative of his pro-Japanese flunkeyism.
