Removal of War Danger from Korean Peninsula Called for
Pyongyang, March 1 (KCNA) -- The south Korean warlike forces together with the U.S. are staging provocative Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises under the simulated conditions of invasion of the DPRK. This comes under fire by a bylined article of Rodong Sinmun Tuesday.

An opportunity for dialogue and peace disappeared and the danger of a war is increasing on the Korean Peninsula due to the reckless moves of the bellicose forces at home and abroad, a blatant challenge to the desire and demand of all Koreans for detente between the north and the south and peace on the peninsula, the article notes, and goes on:

What is required by the Korean nation is detente and peace, not confrontation and war.

Only when the danger of a war is defused on the peninsula, is it possible to ensure the peace of the country and the security of the nation and achieve independent reunification, peace and prosperity.

To this end, it is necessary to force the bellicose forces at home and abroad to cease their exercises for a war of aggression against the DPRK and their arms buildup.

Their saber-rattling and arms build-up are the main factor of increasing the danger of a war and the root cause of harassing peace.

The south Korean warmongers let loose a whole string of outbursts calling for an adventurous "preemptive attack" on the DPRK. In order to realize their scenario they have massively introduced and deployed fighters, missiles, guided bombs and other latest attack means from the U.S. It admits of no argument that they are gravely threatening peace and security on the Korean Peninsula and the rest of Northeast Asia and bringing the dark clouds of a nuclear war to hang over the Korean nation.

They should not tighten the cooperation with foreign aggressor forces but cooperate with the fellow countrymen desirous of reconciliation, unity, peace and reunification in order to defuse the danger of a war and ensure durable peace on the peninsula.

The Koreans in the north and south and overseas aspiring after peace can prove their matchless strength and smash any move of the bellicose forces at home and abroad and ensure the triumphant great march for independent reunification when all of them go united under the banner of the joint declarations.
