DPRK Will Bolster Up War Deterrent: Spokesman
Pyongyang, March 28 (KCNA) -- The spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA on Friday blasting the U.S. for disclosing its attempt to intensify military provocations disturbing peace and stability on the Korean peninsula and in its vicinity:

The U.S. president at a recent summit of the U.S., Japan and south Korea held in Hague openly justified the on-going joint military exercises, disclosing his provocative intention to further intensify them.

The danger of a war on the Korean peninsula is increasing obviously due to the U.S. massive introduction of aggression forces and destructive weapons and its ceaseless madcap maneuvers for a nuclear war.

It is a vicious strategic scenario of the U.S. to bar detente on the Korean peninsula created thanks to our sincere efforts and prevent the inter-Korean relations from being mended through such military provocations in a bid to deliberately escalate tensions and invent a pretext for arms buildup in the Asia-Pacific region.

The joint military exercises for aggression staged by the U.S. in south Korea and in its vicinity with nuclear war hardware involved several times every year are, indeed, the most vivid expression of its hostile policy toward the DPRK.

Facts go to prove that a series of commitments made by the U.S. that it has no hostile intent toward the DPRK are a sheer lie.

The U.S. had better fulfill its commitments, not taking issue with others for no reason.

The U.S. is describing its joint military exercises aimed at "occupying Pyongyang" in other country as "defensive" and "regular ones" while terming regular drills of the DPRK army in its land "provocations". This is not workable on anyone.

The U.S. insistence on such logic would only compel the DPRK to develop all its steps for bolstering up its war deterrent and demonstrating it into more annual and regular processes.
