5·18행사위 "5·18 군사작전 암묵적 승인 미국 책임규명 필요"

May 18 group urges US to cooperate on fact finding

 

The May 18thDemocratic Movement groups and Gwangju Citizens Association urged the U.S to cooperate on finding the facts regarding the truth of May 18th. Our HyungJin Ro has more details.

 

The May 18 Democratic Movement group and Gwangju Citizens' Association urged the U.S. government to disclose all related documents and actively cooperate in finding the truth about May 18.

 

The group held a press conference at the May 18 Democratic Plaza and claimed that the authority and command of military operations were in the United States, and that is why we need to clarify the role and responsibility of the U.S.

 

They said declassified State Department documents show the U.S. supported the Chun Doo-hwan regime’s military coup and provided airlift troops and weapons that were used in the massacre of Gwangju citizens.

 

Recently, the U.S. handed over to Korea copies of about 140 pages of State Department documents, including those produced by the US Embassy in Seoul regarding the incident.

 

The handover of the documents came after the ministry asked the U.S. in November to consider declassifying documents related to the movement amid public calls to uncover the truth behind the deadly crackdown on the movement.
