Korean Peninsula

August 5, 1983

The 22nd Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, 31 July – 6 August, 1983 in Göteborg, Sweden:

Alarmed that the situation in the north-east Asian area has become more ominous resultant upon an increase by the United States in South Korea of sophisticated armaments, including additional nuclear weapons, the expressed intent to deploy neutron bombs and Tomahawk Cruise missiles and the projected military cooperation of the United States, Japan and South Korea,

We resolve to urgently call upon the United States to honour Article 2 of the General Assembly Resolution, 3390 B (XXX), November 18, 1975 by an early withdrawal of troops, military personnel and nuclear weapons from South Korea and initiate negotiations with North Korea for the replacement of Korean Military armistice Agreement with a Peace Agreement.

We further resolve to appeal to all member states of the United Nations to use utmost influence and give positive support to the full implementation of the above resolution and the establishment of a Nuclear Weapon Free Zone in North East Asia and surrounding waters.
