Japan's Moves to Revive Aggressor State under Fire
Pyongyang, July 11 (KCNA) -- The Council for the Solution of the Issue of the Volunteers Corps in south Korea held the 1134th Wednesday rally outside the Japanese embassy in Seoul on July 9.

Present there were victims of the sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army, members of the Citizens Solidarity for Democratic Society and other civic and public organizations.

At the rally speakers termed the Japanese government's reinterpretation of the constitution an attempt to scrap Article 9 of the Pacifist Constitution which stipulates the renouncement of war and bans the possession of army and revive the past aggressor state.

Japan claims if south Korea does not allow, Japan's armed forces do not enter south Korea but, those forces will be hurled into the Korean peninsula, in actuality, if the U.S. requests the dispatch of the "Self-Defense Forces" in contingency now that the U.S. forces have the right to command wartime operation of south Korea, they held.

The Japanese government announced the results of the review of the 1993 Kono statement, claiming that its wording was adjusted with the south Korean authorities when it was being worked out, an indication that it tries to evade the responsibility for the issue of the sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army by describing the Kono statement as a product of a political compromise, they charged.

They denounced the review of the Kono statement as a serious human rights abuse against the victims of the sexual slavery and a blatant provocation against the international community calling for a halt to the violence against the women.
