U.S.-S. Korea War Exercises Slammed
| Pyongyang, August 29 (KCNA) -- The National Peace Committee of Korea spokesman issued the following statement Thursday:
Recently the situation on the Korean Peninsula has turned to the road of detente from that of confrontation. This was thanks to the initiative measures taken by the DPRK for the improvement of the north-south ties and the peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and the sincere efforts made by it for them.
But the trend for reconciliation and unity has faced a serious challenge due to the reckless nuclear war moves and confrontational racket against the DPRK being kicked up by the U.S. and the south Korean warmongers.
On August 27, the U.S. imperialist aggressors flew two B-52H nuclear strategic bombers to the sky above south Korea from an air force base in the U.S. mainland to stage a nuclear attack drill targeting the DPRK before their deployment on Guam.
At night on August 15 and during the day on August 21, a few days after they started Ulji Freedom Guardian, they flew Guam-based B-52H to the sky above Jik Islet in south Korea, two planes each, staging DPRK-targeted nuclear strike drills.
The U.S. introduction of the nuclear strategic bombers, one of three nuclear strategic strike means, timed to coincide with the massive Ulji Freedom Guardian which it is staging together with the puppet south Korean warmongers with the involvement of its huge troops, is an open nuclear threat to the DPRK, a revelation of its hideous scheme to ignite a nuclear war on the Korean Peninsula at any cost and another unpardonable grave provocation.
The south Korean warmongers kicked up the racket for confrontation with the DPRK, saying that when a war breaks out they have to surely win and full combat readiness should be taken, openly throwing a hurdle in the way for hardly arranged north-south dialogue.
This is an intolerable mockery of the DPRK, which is making big efforts while exercising patience for detente, and an anachronistic act of going against the aspiration of the Koreans for the improvement of the north-south ties and stability and against the trend of the times.
Question is if they have face to talk about "dialogue", "genuine peace" and "stability" while being bent on war moves against the DPRK with the use of nuclear strategic bombers, the dialogue partner.
Moreover, it is the height of folly and brigandish sophism to cry out for "dismantlement of nuclear program" by the DPRK while posing a nuclear threat to it.
The situation clearly proves that it is exactly the U.S. and the south Korean warmongers who are straining the situation on the Korean Peninsula and escalating confrontation.
There is a limit to the patience of the DPRK as it had already clarified.
Peace, stability and advancement of the north-south ties can never be realized with the efforts by one side only.
The U.S. imperialists and the south Korean military warmongers should know that dangerous provocations violating sovereignty of the DPRK and encroaching upon its supreme interests will lead to an irrevocable development.
The U.S. and the south Korean warmongers should behave with discretion, not misjudging the patience and self-restraint exercised by the army and people of the DPRK.
