Rodong Sinmun Slams Japan's Projected Distribution of Provocative War Games

    Pyongyang, November 3 (KCNA) -- As already reported, it was disclosed recently that the Japanese reactionaries are contemplating the production and distribution of the extremely bellicose and provocative war games to the effect that the Japan Self-Defence Forces (SDF) are fighting a war of aggression against the DPRK and other neighboring countries, occupying Tok Islet and Jeju Island, "attacking" the nuclear facilities of the DPRK and "wiping out" the Chinese armed forces. This is arousing serious concern and vigilance among the public at home and abroad. Rodong Sinmun Thursday observes in a signed commentary carried in this regard: This is a clear proof that the Japanese reactionaries' moves for overseas aggression have reached an extremely reckless phase. This, at the same time, brings to light their reckless design for reinvasion aimed at realizing their wild ambition to dominate the DPRK and other Asian countries, availing themselves of the U.S. imperialists' war moves against the DPRK. Their moves to stage a comeback to Korea under the pretext of taking a swift and efficient countermeasure to cope with "the contingency in the areas surrounding Japan" with main emphasis on "the emergency on the Korean Peninsula" have assumed unprecedentedly undisguised and substantial nature, going beyond the tolerance limit.
    Their ulterior motive is to preempt an armed attack on the DPRK and, furthermore, fight a war of aggression against its other neighboring countries. Japan's claim to Tok Islet can be interpreted as part of their war scenario.
    The above-said war games under the simulated conditions of attacks on the DPRK are a grave provocation to the Koreans and other Asians and a danger signal hinting at reinvasion against the DPRK and other neighbors.
    Should the Japanese reactionaries launch a war of aggression against the DPRK and other neighbors at any cost, they will meet only self-destruction, the commentary warns.
