U.S.-S. Korean War Maneuvers Slashed

Korean Central News Agency of DPRK via Korea News Service (KNS)

Pyongyang, July 27 (KCNA) -- The U.S. and the south Korean puppet group kicked off the largest-ever joint naval exercises to invade the DPRK in the East Sea of Korea on July 25 with ultra-modern war hardware such as nuclear-powered aircraft carrier involved, talking about the "demonstration of deterrent to contain north Korea and armed forces."

They are contemplating frantically staging exercises for a war of aggression against the DPRK in the sea, air and ground till the end of this year one after another including the Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military exercises slated to be waged in mid-August.

In the meantime, the U.S. and the south Korean puppet group held what they called "talks of diplomatic and defense chiefs" in Seoul when their plot to cook up a "resolution on additional sanctions against the DPRK" went bust. At these talks they hatched a new plot against the DPRK and, on this basis, discussed on what they called "plans for separate sanctions" and a war scenario in a bid to escalate the confrontation with the DPRK.

A spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea in a statement issued on Tuesday condemned this action as another serious provocation to the DPRK and a blatant challenge to the peace-loving public opinion at home and abroad.

It goes on:

All the movements of the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces go to prove that a final examination of Washington's scenario for a war of aggression against the DPRK has been over in the diplomatic and military aspects and is set to enter the phase of actual actions.

They plugged the Japanese reactionaries into the anti-DPRK smear campaign and the racket for confrontation with the DPRK in a bid to tighten the military nexus among the U.S., Japan and south Korea.

They are translating the plan to create a "triangular military alliance" into reality by inviting even Japan's "Self-Defense Forces" to participate in the on-going joint naval exercises under the cloak of "observers."

All facts go to prove with added clarity that the case of the sunk warship of the south Korean puppet navy is a hideous conspiratorial farce orchestrated by the U.S. in an effort to stifle the DPRK, invent a pretext for launching a war of aggression against the DPRK, bolster up the force to dominate Northeast Asia and knock into shape a military "alliance" for aggression.

If they ignite a war in any waters of the East Sea or the West Sea of Korea, this war will spill over not only into the Korean Peninsula but into the rest of Northeast Asia and rapidly develop into a new global war.

It is the spirit and mettle of the DPRK to react to "force" in kind and foil sanctions in kind.

The army and people of the DPRK will decisively react to the enemies' "demonstration of deterrent" with more powerful and horrible deterrence built up by dint of Songun as already clarified.

The U.S. and the south Korean puppet group would be well advised to stop their reckless acts, well aware that their stand-off with the DPRK and war moves will bring them nothing but disgrace and a miserable defeat.
