    Pyongyang, March 14 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Korean National Peace Committee issued a statement Monday and bitterly denounced the U.S. and the south Korean authorities for their plan to stage RSOI and Foal Eagle military exercises from March 19 to 25, branding them as an unpardonable move to ignite a war of aggression and inflict the terrible holocaust of a nuclear war on the Korean nation. It is irrefutable that such military exercises are a nuclear test war, a very dangerous preliminary war for a preemptive attack on the DPRK any time, the spokesman says, and goes on:
    The acute situation prevailing in the Korean Peninsula clearly shows once again that the U.S. talking about the "six-party talks" is no more than a deceptive farce to cover up its aggressive and brigandish nature and that there is no change in its intention to stifle the DPRK by force of arms.
    The U.S. responded with war maneuver to the just demand of public opinion at home and abroad for the renunciation of its hostile policy toward the DPRK, a stumbling block in the way of settling the nuclear issue.
    This is only a deliberate move to hamper a peaceful solution to the nuclear issue and resumption of the six-party talks.
    The reality fully proves that the U.S. is chiefly to blame for escalating the nuclear crisis on the Korean Peninsula and leading the situation to an extreme pitch of confrontation and war.
    It is the spirit and pluck of the army and people of the DPRK under the Songun leadership to respond to a hard line with a super hard line and to a provocation with a merciless fatal blow.
    The U.S. and the south Korean warmongers should not act rashly and stop at once their reckless war maneuvers against the DPRK, clearly understanding the resolute will and invincible spirit of the Korean people.
