A major theme of the inaugural event of the People's Congress of Resistance was to oppose a new Korean War. A resolution passed on Sept. 16 read, "The People’s Congress of Resistance calls for the withdrawal of U.S. troops and bases from Korea, an end to the provocative annual U.S./South Korea war maneuvers, the removal of the THAAD missile system, and the signing of a peace treaty between the United States and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea." This resolution was introduced by the chair, following the statement of Jang Jingsook of the New People's Party in South Korea.
President Trump has threatened the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) with “fire and fury like the world has never seen” – a new, nuclear war aimed at annihilating the DPRK.
