The People for Achieving Peace and Reunification (SPARK - ed), an organization of south Korea, reportedly launched an action for the establishment of a peace mechanism of the Korean peninsula outside the building of the south Korean Ministry of Defense on Sept. 26.

Recalling that crisis control authority was transferred to the "UN commander" as demanded by the U.S. during the south Korea-U.S. joint military drills in August, the organization accused the U.S. of trying to keep the prerogative of the supreme command of the south Korean army through the "UN command", which should have already been dissolved, in a bid to drag south Korea into the U.S. scenario for dominating the world.

Criticizing the U.S. for pressurizing south Korea to renew its military intelligence-sharing agreement with Japan, it urged the U.S. and the south Korean authorities to roll back their hostile policy toward the north and opt for ensuring peace.
