  • Description

    PRESIDENT CHUNG-HEE PARK TODAY, OCT 1, TENSIONS WOULD GROW IN THE KOREAN PENINSULA FOR SEVERAL YEARS TO COME AND THE DANGER OF NORTH KOREAN STARTING A NEW WAR IN DESPERATION COULD NOT BE EXCLUDED.

    THE SOLIDER-PRESIDENT TOLD A CEREMONY MARKING THE NATIONAL ARMED FORCES DAY THAT THE KOREAN PENINSULA WAS THE "MOST DANGEROUS" SPOT IN ASIA WHERE HE SAID FORCES OF VIOLENCE WERE STILL CONSPIRING FOR AGGRESSION. "IT IS OUR JUDGEMENT THAT TENSION WILL GROW FOR AT LEAST SEVERAL YEARS TO COME, "MR. PARK SAID. "FOR, THE PRESENT CONSPIRACY OF THE CLIQUE OF (NORTH KOREAN PREMIER) IL-SUNG KIM TO REUNIFY THE COUNTRY UNDER COMMUNISM BY FORCE BEHIND THE SMOKE-SCREEN OF DECEITFUL PEACE OVERTURES WILL CONTINUE."
    HE SAID THAT AS SOUTH KOREA'S PACE OF DEVELOPMENT AND CONSTRUCTION GREW FASTER, NORTH KOREA WOULD BE INCREASINGLY IMPATIENT.

    "WHEN WE OVERWHELM THEM IN ALL FIELDS AND THEY FIND THAT THEIR SCHEME FOR UNIFICATION UNDER COMMUNISM WOULD END IN A DREAM, WE SHOULD NOT EXCLUDE THE POSSIBILITY OF NORTH KOREA EMBARKING ON A DESPERATE ADVENTURE," HE SAID.

    HE CHARGED NORTH KOREA HAS REJECTED HIS PEACE OVERTURE ON AUGUST 15 THAT IF NORTH KOREA RENOUNCED FORCE INSEEKING REUNIFICATION, SOUTH KOREA WOULD TAKE STEPS FOR PHASED REMOVAL OF BARRIERS SEPARATING THE TWO KOREA'S. PRESIDENT PARK SAID NORTH KOREA'S REPEATED OVERTURE FOR A CONFEDERATION OF NORTH AND SOUTH KOREA AND TRADE AND POSTAL EXCHANGES WAS A SMOKE-SCREEN TO COVER US ITS AGGRESSIVE INTENTIONS.

    HE RECALLED NORTH KOREA MADE A SIMILAR OVERTURE JUST A MONTH BEFORE IT INVADED THE SOUTH KIM 1950 AND REPEATED THE SAME OVERTURE IN 1960 AFTER THE OVERTHROW OF FORMER PRESIDENT SYNGMAN RHEE'S GOVERNMENT TO FAN UP CONFUSION PREVAILING IN THE SOUTH.

    VISITING SEL SALVADORAN PRESIDENT FIDEL SANCHEZ HERNADEZ AND OTHER INVITED FOREIGN GUESTS OBSERVED A TROOPS MARCH PAST ON THE YOLDO ISLET IN THE HAN RIVER AFTER PRESIDENT PARK SPOKE.

    A MOUTH AMERICAN TRANS-CONTINENTAL TROOPS AND EQUIPMENT CARRIER C-5 GALAXIE MADE A DEBUT IN SOUTH KOREA BY FLYING OVER THE YIDO ISLET TODAY.

    SOUTH KOREA'S MAJOR OPPOSITION SHINMIN (NEW DEMOCRATIC) PARTY TUESDAY NOMINATED REP. DAE JUNG KIM AS ITS PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE TO FACE INCUMBENT PRESIDENT CHUNG HE PARK IN ELECTIONS NEXT MAY.

    KIM, 45, UPSET REP. YOUNG SAM KIM BY 458-410 VOTES IN THE SECOND BALLOT AT THE PARTY'S NOMINATING CONVENTION. THERE WERE 16 INVALID VOTES. JUNG DAE KIM WNET INTO THE CONVENTION AS AN UNDERDOG. PARTY LEADER CHIN YU SAN HAD RECOMMENDED YOUNG SAM KIM FOR NOMINATION. THROUGH INTENSIVE POLITICAL MANEUVERING DURING AN INTERMISSION AFTER THE FIRST BALLOTING DAR JUNG KIM SECURED ENOUGH VOTES NEEDED FOR HIS TRIUMPH.

    THE TWO CONTENDERS FOR NOMINATION HAD TO GO TO A SECOND BALLOT OF THE 884 DELEGATES AT THE CONVENTION AT SEOUL CITIZENS HALL TO DECIDE THE WINNER. IN THE FIRST BALLOTING, YOUNG SAM KIM LED 421 TO 383, BUT NEITHER CANDIDATE HAD THE NECESSARY SIMPLE MAJORITY.

    THE OUTCOME WAS A SERIOUS BLOW TO PARTY LEADER YU WHO HAD TRIED TO PERSUADE DAE JUNG KIM TO WITHDRAWN FROM THE RACE TO INSURE UNANIMOUS SUPPORT FOR YOUNG SAM KIM. OBSERVERS PREDICTED THE PARTY WILL NOW FACE A SERIOUS POWER STRUGGLE.

    BECAUSE THE PARTY HAS AN ANNUAL CONVENTION SCHEDULED FOR NOVEMBER, THE PARTY'S SO CALLED, "ANTI MAINSTREAM FACTION," INCLUDING DAE JUNG KIM'S SUPPORTERS, ARE EXPECTED TO STAGE A DETERMINED EFFORT TO GRAB THE LEADERSHIP.
