Rodong Sinmun Demands Retraction of South Korea-U.S. SOFA
Pyongyang, July 30 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Saturday in an article demands the withdrawal of the U.S. imperialist aggression forces, cause of all misfortune, from south Korea on the lapse of 50 years since the conclusion of the south Korea-U.S. "Status of Forces Agreement" (SOFA).

The south Koreans of all social strata are struggling in demand of the retraction of the SOFA in south Korea, the paper says, and continues:

This is quite natural as the SOFA is not only an aggression document which grants the U.S. imperialists legal guarantee for military presence in south Korea but a disgraceful document which infringes upon the dignity and interests of the south Korean people.

The U.S. imperialist aggression forces have committed shuddering crimes such as murder, violence, rape and environmental degradation under the protection of the unequal SOFA, thereby inflicting insults, misfortune and sacrifice on the south Koreans.

The projected deployment of THAAD pursued by the Park Geun Hye group that is now wreaking havoc with the whole of south Korea is by no means unrelated to the unequal SOFA.

The south Korean people can not live at ease even a moment as long as the U.S. imperialist aggression forces station in south Korea and the shackling and unequal "agreements" such as the SOFA exist--this is a bitter lesson of history.

The south Korean people are called upon to turn out in the anti-U.S. struggle, scrap the modern-day "slavery document" which brings misfortune, disgrace and death to them and drive the U.S. imperialist aggression forces out of south Korea as soon as possible.
