FM Spokesman Hits Out at US for Contending AA Can't Be Dissolved Unilaterally
| Pyongyang, March 14 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA Thursday as the U.S. and the forces kowtowing to it are insisting that the Korean Armistice Agreement (AA) can not be unilaterally dissolved:
The Supreme Command of the Korean People's Army announced that the AA will be totally nullified from March 11 when the U.S. nuclear war exercises aimed to stifle the DPRK get into full swing.
Accordingly the army and people of the DPRK turned out in an all-out action for foiling the U.S. moves aimed at a nuclear war and reunifying the country at an early date, completely unrestrained by AA.
But the U.S. and its allies are asserting that AA was adopted with mutual agreement and can not be dissolved unilaterally. This shows a sleight of hand they have employed to use the threadbare AA for escaping the DPRK's toughest counteraction.
Unlike other agreements, AA is not one that requires bilateral agreement to be rendered invalid from its peculiar nature and it will be naturally nullified if one side does not abide by it.
AA has long been invalid due to the systematic scrapping of it by the U.S. and the unreasonable behavior of the UN Security Council that backed the U.S. moves for the last six decades.
Armistice could remain though in name only because the DPRK exercised utmost self-restraint and patience.
The U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces are now holding Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military drills to light a fuse for a nuclear war with the involvement of huge aggression troops, the biggest violation of AA and an act of scrapping it.
Under the prevailing situation which is little different from a war in fact, the DPRK can no longer be bound to AA.
This is a stark reality in which AA is no longer valid.
The U.S. will have to hold full responsibility for scrapping and finally nullifying AA, in case the situation entails a catastrophic consequence on the Korean Peninsula.
