Wrong Policy on Anti-Personnel Mines
The biased policy of the United States on the production and possession of anti-personnel mines was disclosed during the recent conference to review the implementation of the convention on prohibition of anti-personnel mines (Ottawa Treaty) held in Mozambique.
A spokesperson for the National Security Council of the White House in a statement clarified that the US government would no longer produce anti-personnel mines and purchase them but, timed to coincide with this, a spokesperson for the US State Department blustered the announcement of a halt to using those mines would not affect the defense of the Korean peninsula.
This outpouring cannot but be called into question as it is revelation of the US sinister scenario to keep south Korea under its occupation as its bridgehead for carrying out its strategy for dominating the Asia-Pacific.
