U.S. Rebuffed for Taking Issue with DPRK over Its Rocket Launching Drills
Pyongyang, March 12 (KCNA) -- The Federation of Korean National Economic Workers in China in a statement on March 7 warned that the U.S. should not take issue with the DPRK over its rocket launching drills.

The DPRK's self-defensive rocket launching drills are the just and self-defensive military acts to defend the sovereignty, security, peace of the country with arms, the statement said.

But the U.S. is letting loose nonsensical sophism that the drills are a "low-level provocation" and "violation of the UN Security Council's resolutions", it charged.

The DPRK repeatedly demanded a halt to the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises, but the U.S. and its followers are bringing the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of war while staging the brigandish joint military exercises targeting the north by mobilizing a nuclear submarine and latest nuclear war hardware, it noted.

No country in the world will remain a passive onlooker to the war exercises threatening it with nuclear war hardware, it said.

All the Korean economic workers resident in China positively support the just self-defensive measures of the DPRK and strongly demand the U.S. and its followers stop the war exercises at once, it stressed.
