The vulgarity of Trump, Is Korea a subordinate state of the United States to Trump?
-written by Kim Jong Chol, Chairman of the Freedom Press Foundation
U.S. President Donald Trump met with reporters at the White House on Thursday (local time) and made remarks insulting the Republic of Korea. The truth behind the incident was Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-hwa's remarks at a parliamentary inspection session of the National Assembly's Foreign Affairs and Trade Ministry.
When Rep. Lee Hae-chan, chairman of the main opposition Minjoo Party, asked if he was willing to lift May 24 measures against North Korea`s sinking of the Cheonan, Kang replied, "We are reviewing with the related ministries." When lawmakers from both the ruling and opposition parties questioned him persistently, she showed signs of turning back and forth, saying, "It is not a full-fledged review by the government."
Whether to lift May 24, a stumbling block to exchanges, at a time when the two Koreas are heading for peaceful coexistence and cooperation, is a matter for the president to decide according to the opinion of South Korean politicians and sovereignty. The action was taken on May 24, 2010, Lee Myung-bak, president at the time of Moon Jae-in as released by the president is determined at any time simply to maintain and, so can do that he would do keep.
However, as soon as the National Assembly raised the issue of lifting the May 24 measure, which can be independently decided by the head of state, Trump said. "They can't do anything without our approval." The AP reported that Trump said that South Korea's proposal to lift sanctions on North Korea can be made only if it allows it.
It is simply arrogant language and behavior that regards the Republic of Korea as a subordinate state. Trump cannot claim that the U.N. Security Council's resolution of economic sanctions against North Korea can't be lifted without my approval.
Song Young-gil, a lawmaker of the main opposition Minjoo Party of Korea, raised a sharp voice of criticism as many politicians of the ruling and opposition parties remained silent over Trump's alleged defamation of Korean sovereignty.
"U.N. sanctions need to be reviewed by the U.N. Commission for Sanctions, but besides, Korea's May 24 sanctions and the U.S. sanctions against North Korea are mutual consultations, not anyone's approval." "It is necessary for President Trump to make clear that the purpose of "concern close prior consultation" rather than "approval," he argued.
Moon Jae-in, criticized Trump's behavior such as a colonial ruler.
Right after the Korean War went into an armistice on July 27, 1953, South Korea quickly became dependent on the United States in various areas, including politics, economy, military and culture. The decisive factor that led to the passage was the Korea-U.S. Mutual Defense Treaty, which went into effect on November 18, 1953, after signing on October 1, 1953.
Article 4 of the treaty states, "The Republic of Korea grants the right to deploy the U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force within and near the territory of the Republic of Korea, and the United States accepts it." With the USFK commander (the commander of the United Nations) taking control of the wartime operational control of the Korean military, Korea cannot exercise its military sovereignty entirely.
In addition, the ROK-U.S. Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) and the Defense Security Special Agreement (SMA), which were signed under the Mutual Defense Treaty, have made the U.S. an "A" and Korea. Trump recently said that South Korea should pay 100 percent for the U.S. military presence in Korea. It sounded like an arrogant 'command' that could only be given to a colony or a tributary.
Since the Republic of Korea government was established in August 1948, few of the presidents of all time have shown a bold and independent attitude toward American authorities who regard the southern half of the Korean Peninsula as a subordinate state. It may be because he believed that he could not be guaranteed safety if he resisted the U.S. ruling power, which has huge economic and military forces as well as powerful secret intelligence agencies.
But the revolution fueled by a candle was Moon Jae-in, the government than the previous administrations economic and military sovereignty in the field of power that can claim to lead a blameless.North Korean regime, and by the hand chops and a background that could change with a peace system of the Cold War.
Moon Jae-in, the government North and South Korea, the United States and China with 'the declaration', and move much more flexible that it's got to be shown in order to realize the peace agreement.Trump's behavior must be severely criticized such as colonial ruler.
