  • Description

    The South Korean National Assembly opened an extraordinary three day session today to question the cabinet on North Korean threats following the Indochina debacle and North Korea's leaders, Kim II sung visit to Peking. Kim visit to Moscow on a similar mission 26 years ago preceded the out break of the korean war.

    South Korean still have bitter memories of how Seoul was twice overrun by communists during the 1950 - 53 War. The ruling Democratic Republican Party and the opposition New Democratic Party have already agreed on the strong wording of the resolution on national security due to be passed on tuesday.

    Assembly sources said the resolution would warm that should North Korea Launch an attack, the south would repel it and try to reunify divided Korea. South Korea also would call on the United States to fulfil its treaty commitment to help defend South Korea.

    Vice-speaker Kim Chin-Man presiding over the opening session said South Korea had faith in the U.S. pledge of support but on its part should also be prepared to draw support. The Assembly is scheduled to meet in a plenary session behind closed doors on monday to question the cabinet members and hear their assessment of the security situation in Korea.
