A spokesman for the assembly team said: The most frequent search term for 2018 is fine particulate matter. From the beginning of national division to today, is it not the United States that influences unity like fine particles? The establishment of the Korea-US Working Group in the United States hindered the development of North-South relations. Eliminating the suffering of the separated families and uniting Korea and North Korea to achieve prosperity is the way we have to go.
The participants also performed a dance performance accompanied by the Korean song Nice to meet you (lyrics depict the hot scene of reunion between the two Koreas. The other participants sat on the ground watching them dance and shouted Nice to meet you. Several foreigners who passed the rally also took pictures of the scene with cameras.
While South Koreas peace team calls for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from South Korea, the United States and South Korea are still at odds over the allocation of U.S. military funds in South Korea. According to the Star-Spangled Banner, the United States and South Korea have not yet reached an agreement on a new U.S. military expenditure allocation plan in South Korea because the U.S. government requires South Korea to substantially increase its share of military expenditure. If no agreement can be reached in the near future, the U.S. military in South Korea may allow Korean employees working in the U.S. military to take unpaid leave indefinitely. American media speculated that the Trump government would probably want to use the withdrawal as a chip to force South Korea to increase the proportion of military expenditure. (Compiler/Vernon)
