Projected U.S.-S. Korean War Drills under Fire in Russia
Pyongyang, February 12 (KCNA) -- There took place protest actions outside the U.S. and south Korean embassies in Moscow on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 to support the crucial proposal of the National Defence Commission (NDC) of the DPRK and protest against the projected joint military drills of the U.S. and south Korea.

Attending the actions were personages of six Russian political parties and organizations including the Communists Party of Russia and the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks and masses.

Published there was a joint appeal addressed to the U.S. and the south Korean authorities, which supported the crucial proposal made by the NDC of the DPRK and denounced the projected Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military drills for aggression.

Saying the international community including Russia is expressing deep concern over the situation on the Korean peninsula as it is inching close to a crisis, the appeal noted:

The U.S. and the south Korean authorities are going to kick off Key Resolve and Foal Eagle in late February under the plea of "defensive" drills.

Reptile media of the U.S. and south Korea are vying with each other to distort the essence of the issue and float such a false rumor that the DPRK has driven the north-south relations into confrontation.

However, such farce went into total bankruptcy after the NDC of the DPRK made public a crucial proposal calling for paving a broad avenue for mending the north-south relations on Jan. 16.

If the detailed and explicit crucial proposal is implemented, a new chapter of peace will be unfolded in the inter-Korean relations.

This will also help settle all the matters arising in the north-south relations including the reunion of separated families and relatives.

We demand the south Korean authorities positively respond to the crucial proposal.
