Japanese Personage Denounces UFG
Pyongyang, August 28 (KCNA) -- Kenki Nakamura, chairman of the Japan-Korea Society for Scientific and Educational Interchange, issued a statement on August 21 in protest against the U.S.-south Korea Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military exercises.

UFG kicked off despite the strong opposition at home and abroad is a very dangerous military provocation, he said, demanding an immediate stop to it. He went on:

The U.S. described UFG as "defensive one" as it did in the past, but it is aimed to make a preemptive strike on the DPRK from A to Z, an unpardonable provocation.

What is more serious is that the "tailored deterrence strategy" the keynote of which is a preemptive nuclear strike is being formally applied to the drills for the first time. This clearly proves that the U.S. and south Korea are creating the crisis of a nuclear war on the Korean peninsula and threatening the peace in the region and the rest of Northeast Asia through their military nexus and nuclear blackmail.

The U.S. forces should be withdrawn from south Korea at once.

We strongly demand once again a halt to the dangerous UFG.

We are also determined to continue conducting the movement for the peace on the Korean peninsula and in Northeast Asia in the future, too.
