    Pyongyang, March 26 (KCNA) -- The United States staged large-scale war exercises, a combination of RSOI and Foal Eagle joint military drills, in south Korea from March 19 to 25, worsening the U.S.-DPRK relations and derailing the resumption of the six-way talks, says Rodong Sinmun today in a signed commentary. If the U.S. wanted a solution to the nuclear issue between the two countries through the talks, it should not have launched such war games getting on the DPRK's nerves under the tense situation, the commentary notes, and says:
    As already known, since its emergence the second-term Bush administration has listed the DPRK as an "outpost of tyranny" and made hostile statements toward it one after another, rendering the bilateral relations extremely strained. Not content with this, it conducted war games targeted against the DPRK recently by instigating the south Korean authorities.
    Launching the war games, the U.S. sought criminal aims to drive a wedge between the north and the south of Korea and check the improvement of their relations and chill the atmosphere of national reconciliation and reunification.
    All the facts go to clearly prove that the U.S. does not want either improvement of the relations with the DPRK and a solution to the nuclear issue or peace on the Korean Peninsula and inter-Korean reconciliation and reunification, but intends only to invade the DPRK by force of arms and realize its domination over the whole of Korea.
