U.S. and S. Korean Authorities Urged to Stop Their Rash Actions
Pyongyang, February 29 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the National Peace Committee of Korea Wednesday made public the following statement:

The U.S. imperialist aggressors and south Korean puppet warmongers started on Monday large-scale "Key Resolve" and "Foal Eagle" joint military exercises defying the strong warning of the DPRK, concerns and accusations from public at home and abroad.

Involved in the drills are huge troops and latest war equipment of the U.S. forces and the south Korean army.

This saber-rattling clearly shows that the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean authorities are ferocious warmongers who stoop to anything to achieve their ulterior goal of aggression no matter how the situation develops and no matter what public opinion at home and abroad demands.

They assert that the drills are "annual defensive ones" and "drills to cope with provocation" from someone, but their aggressive nature and danger have already been fully disclosed before the world.

They openly declared that the drills are to cope with local and all-out wars and "contingency" and operation plans for them are being implemented under the simulated conditions of an actual war. Even the largest-ever landing operation exercise in history is scheduled to take place, targeting against main points of the DPRK.

Few days ago, south Korean warmongers together with GIs ran amuck to launch a grave military provocation on Yonphyong and Paekryong islands again. Kim Kwan Jin, defense minister of south Korea, ordered its army units to fire at the north before getting permission when the north reacts. This shows how desperate they have become in their moves to ignite a war against the north.

This saber-rattling is particularly dangerous as they are kicking up an anti-DPRK smear campaign and intensifying their moves to escalate the confrontation on an unprecedented scale and making desperate efforts to seek a way out of a serious ruling crisis.

They run the whole gamut of intrigues to break the single-minded unity and destabilize the society of the DPRK, with groundless slanders as regards the great loss in the DPRK.

They regard the present time when the people of the DPRK are still grieving over the greatest loss of the nation as a golden chance to realize their goal of aggression which they failed to do in over six decades. They are staging large scale war drills in a bid to rattle the nerves of the DPRK and lead it to counteraction and thus attack it on that pretext.

Their frantic war exercises are the last-ditch efforts to scuttle the efforts of those countries concerned for detente, turn their position in the elections in their favor and thus get rid of the worst political crisis.

The ongoing saber-rattling has brought the hypocritical nature of "dialogue" much touted by the U.S. imperialists and south Korean authorities into bolder relief.

They are going to test the will of the army and people of the DPRK through provocative saber-rattling but the DPRK has already clarified its resolute stand.

If they provoke a war against the DPRK, the consequences will be hardly imaginable.

If another war breaks out in Korea, war shambles will not be limited to the Korean Peninsula only as was the case with the last June 25 war and the aggressors will suffer an incomparably bitter defeat than what they sustained at that time and meet a miserable end.

The army and people of the DPRK will not miss the opportunity to wipe out the U.S. imperialist aggressors, the sworn enemy of the nation, and the Lee group of traitors who desecrated the great loss to the nation and rubbed salt into the wounds of the fellow countrymen. They will also achieve the cause of national liberation and reunification of the country at any cost, satisfying their pent-up grudge.

The U.S. and the south Korean puppet regime would be well advised to behave themselves, bearing deep in mind what severe punishment the invincible army and people of the DPRK will mete out to them when giving full play to their mental power.
