Swedish Figure Denounces U.S.-South Korea Joint Military Exercises
Pyongyang, February 28 (KCNA) -- Christer Lundgren, chairman of the Sweden-Korea Friendship Association, issued a statement on Feb. 22 denouncing the U.S. and the south Korean authorities for their reckless moves for aggression against the DPRK.

He branded the live-fire artillery drills staged by the south Korean war-like forces on the five islands in the West Sea of Korea as a serious military provocation against the DPRK.

The military exercises planned by the U.S. and south Korea would further escalate the tension on the Korean Peninsula, he noted, adding:

The live-shell exercises staged by the south Korean puppets and the U.S.-south Korea joint military exercises prove once again that they do not want the peace on the Korean Peninsula.

The Sweden-Korea Friendship Association strongly denounces the reckless military provocation of the U.S. and the south Korean puppets as a challenge to the peace of the DPRK and its surrounding areas.
