Rodong Sinmun Demands Definite End to DPRK-Targeted Joint Military Exercises
Pyongyang, September 3 (KCNA) -- The DPRK-targeted joint military exercises being staged in south Korea frequently are the root cause of blocking the improvement of the inter-Korean relations and throwing a stumbling block in the way of achieving the peace and the reunification of the country, says Rodong Sinmun Wednesday in an article.

It goes on:

The tension is escalating on the Korean peninsula, bringing misfortune and pain to the compatriots, far from being defused. This is attributable to the ceaseless large-scale joint military drills staged by the U.S. and the south Korean puppet warmongers.

It is an urgent task of the Korean nation to put an end to the political and military confrontation which brings nothing good to the national reconciliation and unity, increases the distrust and hostility between compatriots and brings the danger of a nuclear war.

The south Korean puppet group is busy talking about "dialogue" while staging ceaseless north-targeted joint military exercises but there is no one who would believe it.

The south Korean people will never allow the useless waste of money collected from them as taxes for doing harm to the compatriots and staging maneuvers for a war of aggression which may invite even a nuclear disaster.

No aggressor can ever overpower the concerted efforts of the Korean nation. Whoever truly loves the country and is concerned about the nation's destiny should turn out as one in a just and patriotic struggle to put an end to the north-targeted war drills of the warmongers at home and abroad, irrespective of ideology, political view and ism.

It is necessary root out the very source of a war against the north running counter to the process for improving the inter-Korean relations and achieving the peace and reunification of the country.
