Halt to UFG Demanded by S. Korean Organizations
Pyongyang, August 21 (KCNA) -- Organizations of south Korea held the 179th action for independent reunification and peace outside the U.S. embassy in Seoul at which they denounced the U.S. imperialists and south Korean puppet warmongers for kicking off war maneuvers against the north.

Recalling that the "tailored deterrence strategy" is being applied to the Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military exercises, the organizations said it is a plan for igniting a war, not for deterring a crisis.

The total application of this plan to UFG is an act of totally violating the south-north agreements for peaceful reunification, they charged.

The joint plan for coping with provocation of local war reflected in UFG is also aimed to totally expand the local war, they said, demanding the south Korean authorities stop at once the joint military exercises being staged pursuant to the reckless plans for aggression if they truly want confidence-building.
