Halt to DPRK-Targeted War Exercises Demanded
Pyongyang, November 15 (KCNA) -- The war exercises in south Korea targeted against the DPRK are criminal acts of escalating the inter-Korean political and military stand-off and tension and disturbing the cause of peace and reunification of the country.

Rodong Sinmun Saturday says this in a signed article.

Noting that the above-said war exercises are products of the U.S. hostile policy towards the DPRK, the article goes on:

All the joint military exercises of the U.S. and south Korean warmongers have been staged under the carefully worked out operation scenarios for invading the DPRK. An example of them was the Hoguk joint war exercises staged by the puppet military recently.

The above-said war maneuvers are a grave challenge to the Koreans' cause of reunification.

It is the desire of the Koreans to achieve the peaceful reunification of the country by their concerted efforts by rejecting outside forces. The anti-DPRK joint military exercises, the root cause of escalating tension and war on the Korean Peninsula, should be stopped for the peaceful reunification of the country.

The Lee Myung Bak group is now pretending to be interested in the improvement of the north-south relations and reunification, talking about "dialogue." However, this is nothing but wordplay intended to cover up their true colors as anti-reunification elements and evade the criminal responsibility for having driven the inter-Korean relations into catastrophe.

They had better stop wasting time with such wordplay and the provocative war exercises against the DPRK which deteriorate the inter-Korean relations and chill the atmosphere of dialogue and peace.

The Lee Myung Bak clique of traitors will not be able to escape a severe judgment by history for wrecking peace on the Korean Peninsula and laying big hurdles in the way of improving the inter-Korean relations and achieving the cause of national reunification by frantically staging dangerous war exercises against the DPRK with outside forces in disregard of the trend of the times and the aspiration of the nation.
