U.S. Slammed for Driving Inter-Korean Relations to Catastrophe
Pyongyang, March 17 (KCNA) -- The U.S. has staged large-scale war exercises targeting the DPRK in south Korea every year, steadily pursuing its hostile policy toward the latter. This has extremely escalated tensions on the Korean peninsula and driven the inter-Korean relations into a catastrophe.

Rodong Sinmun Monday says this in an article.

The article goes on:

The U.S. has often said that it supports improved inter-Korean relations but, in actuality, it has worked overtly and covertly to spoil the efforts for their improvement, displeased with the north and the south getting reconciled and advancing toward reunification hand in hand.

This is evidenced by the fact that at a time when the discussion was under way for the reunion of separated families and relatives from the north and the south, the U.S. let B-52s fly into the sky above Jik islet in the West Sea of Korea for a nuclear strike drill targeting the north and put pressure upon the south Korean authorities not to opt for mending the north-south relations in haste.

Not content with it, the U.S. is now expanding the scale of the on-going Foal Eagle joint military drills on a daily basis in a bid to completely spoil the inter-Korean relations.

Had the U.S. canceled Key Resolve and Foal Eagle as demanded by the DPRK, a decisive phase would have been created in improving the inter-Korean relations.

What matters is that the U.S., which has persistently pursued its hostile policy toward the DPRK, never hopes for improved inter-Korean relations.

The fact goes to clearly prove that there would be neither the improvement of north-south relations nor durable peace on the Korean peninsula unless the U.S. heinous hostile policy toward the DPRK is terminated.
