Mass Rallies Held to Condemn Anti-DPRK Smear Campaign
Pyongyang, June 3 (KCNA) -- Mass rallies took place in North and South Hwanghae and Kangwon provinces and Nampho City on Thursday to denounce the U.S. imperialists and the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors in south Korea for their smear campaign against the DPRK.

The rallies were attended by officials of local party and power bodies, social organizations, institutions at all levels, industrial establishments and farms as well as working people and youth and students.

Reporters and speakers there said that a touch-and-go situation in which a war may break out is prevailing on the Korean Peninsula owing to the moves of the south Korean conservative authorities and the U.S. and Japanese aggressors colluding with them.

The case of the sinking of warship was a sheer fabrication orchestrated by the group of traitors, they held, branding the group crying out for even international "sanctions" as the sworn enemy who turned their backs on the nation.

It is the spirit of the army and people of the DPRK to react to the enemy's provocation with resolute punishment, they said, expressing the firm will to smash the moves of the south Korean warmongers to escalate the confrontation with the DPRK.

They called upon all the officials, party members and other working people to keep themselves fully combat ready and display patriotic enthusiasm and creative ingenuity in carrying out their revolutionary duties and thus make positive contributions to accelerating the drive for building a thriving nation.
