Concrete Wall—Symbol of National Confrontation and Division

In the 1970s the south Korean puppets built a concrete wall allegedly to ward off “threat from the north’s invasion of the south” so as to perpetrate the division of the Korean peninsula and create favourable conditions for mounting another aggressive north-targeted war in collusion with the US imperialists.

This barrier extends over 240 kilometres across flat lands, pools and mountain ridges along the Military Demarcation Line on the south side.

More than 800 000 million tons of cement, 200 000 million tons of steel and 3 500 000 million tons of mixtures were spent on the project.

The invested amount of cement was enough and to spare to build a highway between Sinuiju and Pusan.

The wall stands upright northward and slants southward, so it is favourable to attack the north.

Moreover, it is dotted with facilities to deploy pillboxes and heavy weapons and observation posts, and anti-tank, anti-personnel mines and wire entanglements and other piles of barricades are laid in front of the wall facing the north.

The concrete wall is a “boundary line” to cut the blood line of the Korean nation, make national division a fait accompli and secure a vantage point for north-targeted military operations and a symbol of national division and inter-Korean confrontation.
