22 March 2017 — FAIR

Tensions between the United States and North Korea are making their way back into the news after a series of missile tests and presidential Twitter threats.

Say No to War on the Korean Peninsula! For a Lasting Peace in the Northeast Asian Region By Dr. Kiyul Chung

However, that “temporary cessation” of the deadly military conflicts has not put an end to all hostilities as it was supposed to and as was clearly stated as its intent in the 1953 document. Instead, a situation has continued of the peaceful reunification of Korean peninsula being serially obstructed and with the DPRK put under continual siege and even serial threats of nuclear annihilation by the U.S. since November 1950.
