US Condemned for Its Moves to Revive “UN Command”

Date: 08/07/2024 | Source: Naenara (En) | Read original version at source

Kim Kwang Myong, a researcher of the Institute for Disarmament and Peace of the DPRK Foreign Ministry released the following article titled “The Revival of the ‘UN Command’ is the second version of expansion of NATO and a detonator for a new world war”:

It has been 74 years since the US cooked up the “UN Command” and 67 years since it dragged the “UN Command” into the ROK in a bid to reinvade the DPRK.

More than 40 years ago, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution on dissolving the “UN Command” in order to ensure lasting peace on the Korean peninsula and regain the authority and impartiality of the UN. But the “UN Command” is now revealing its aggressive and provocative nature more clearly.

The revival and expansion of the “UN Command”, which was born as a war tool and ill-famed as an organization for confrontation, foretells more instable and unpredictable security environment not only the Korean peninsula and the Asia-Pacific region but also the rest of the world would face.

The “UN Command”, which should have been dissolved long ago, is a military organization that the US established in 1950 to drag the armed forces of its vassal states into the Korean war by abusing the name of the UN.

In July 1950, soon after the outbreak of the Korean war, the US railroaded a resolution on committing US-led multinational armed forces to the Korean front by taking an opportunity when the former Soviet Union was boycotting the activities of the UN Security Council, and cooked up the “UN Command”. In July 1957 after the ceasefire, it dragged the headquarters of the “UN Command” into the Korean peninsula to make preparations for a new war against the DPRK.

In the 1970s, the US transferred the “military operation control” of the “command” to the US-ROK Combined Forces Command, in the face of the demand of the international community for dissolving the “UN Command”. But in the 21st century it has revived the military functions of the “UN Command” one by one while prioritizing its pivot to the Asia-Pacific.

First, in order to restore the position of the “UN Command” as a combat command controlling multinational forces, the US appointed military generals of its vassal states as vice commanders of the “UN Command” and appointed full-time officers as liaison representatives of the “command” which had been occupied by military attachés of the embassies of its vassal states in the ROK to readjust the machinery.

Moreover, it has staged actual manoeuvres involving active armed forces of the member states of the “UN Command,” including fighters and warships, free from the existing usage of letting representatives of the member states of “UN Command” participate in computer simulation during the US-ROK joint military exercises.

The US held a defence authority meeting between the ROK and a member nation of the “UN Command” in November last year. And it discussed the issues of making practical use of all capabilities of the “UN Command”, increasing the capability of the “command” to fight a war, and laying a systematic framework for committing the forces of the “command” member nations in contingency of the Korean peninsula.

This proves that the “UN Command”, which had remained worthless, is evolving into a war command, worthy of the name, against independent and sovereign states in the region.

Today the world is clearly witnessing what consequences NATO’s “eastward advance” that has continued for decades has brought to the security environment of Europe.

As NATO broke its promise of not expanding its domain even an inch and triggered off the security crisis in Europe by accepting 14 countries, the US attempt to revive and expand the function of the “UN Command” in disregard of the international community’s concern and demand is the root cause of increased possibility of a new physical conflict in the Asia-Pacific region.

The US attempt to revive the “UN Command” is the second version of the expansion of NATO and a detonator that can trigger off a new world war.

The countries joining the US moves for reviving the “UN Command” need to recollect how risky and suicidal act they are embroiled in.

The US is getting crazier about its military nexus with its vassal forces to maintain its ever-vulnerable hegemonic position. Such move requires ceaseless counteraction to redress the imbalance in the dynamic relations that may arise in the region and to deter a new military conflict.

The DPRK will continue to make responsible efforts to deter the reckless acts of the US and its followers disturbing peace and stability on the Korean peninsula and beyond and forcing a holocaust of war on humankind, and thus firmly defend its security interests and global peace and stability.
