Pyongyang, March 11 (KCNA) -- The United States and the south Korean authorities should not act rashly but promptly cancel the planned reckless military exercises against the DPRK, pondering over the grave consequences to be entailed by such war maneuvers, demanded a spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland in a statement Friday.
He strongly urged the south Korean authorities to behave themselves, mindful that if they blindly join the U.S. in its dangerous saber rattling, it will only bedevil the north-south relations.
The statement said:
The U.S. and the south Korean forces plan to stage large-scale war exercises codenamed RSOI and Foal Eagle targeted against the DPRK from March 19 to 25. This evidently proves once again that the U.S. has neither intention nor will to negotiate and coexist with the DPRK but only seeks confrontation and war.
The army and the people in the DPRK will resolutely counter their anti-north war moves, closely watching them. They will deal a merciless telling blow at the aggressors and root out the source of war, if they finally ignite a war in this land.
