S Korean body opposes renewal of GSOMIA

The People's Sovereignty Solidarity in south Korea made public a statement on Nov. 25 in denunciation of the U.S., Japan and the "Liberal Korea Party" that exerted pressure upon the south Korean authorities to renew the general security of military intelligence agreement (GSOMIA) with Japan, according to the south Korean internet newspaper Jaju Sibo.

The statement said that the decision of the "government" on the renewal of GSOMIA is a humiliating act of making a unilateral concession to Japan.

It noted that seeing GSOMIA renewed, the solidarity could not but blames the pressure eclipsing the U.S. colonial rule.

It referred to the fact that the U.S. Department of State, Defense Department and Congress put unprecedented pressure upon the south Korean "government" to maintain GSOMIA and Japan and the LKP joined in the U.S. pressure without hesitation.

It asserted that the "government" disappointed the people, who have waged candlelight demonstration against Japan, by renewing GSOMIA under pressure of the U.S., Japan and the LKP.

The renewal of GSOMIA proved once again that anyone without national independence is bound to be subjected to humiliation, it stressed.

It concluded that the solidarity would squarely fight against the decision together with the people who have get united through candlelight demonstrations for national independence and purge of deep-seated evils.
