Nepalese, Austrian and Indonesian Blast Joint Military Exercises
Pyongyang, March 15 (KCNA) -- Organizations of Nepal released a joint statement on Mar. 10 in denunciation of Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises being staged by the U.S. imperialists and the bellicose forces of south Korea.

The United States and the south Korean authorities are staging the provocative exercises for aggression threatening peace not only on the Korean Peninsula but also in the rest of the Asian region despite repeated warnings of the DPRK and protest and denunciation by the international community, the statement said, and added: The Supreme Command of the Korean People's Army ordered all the armed forces of the DPRK to get themselves fully ready to go into action.
