Projected U.S.-South Korea Joint Military Exercises under Fire

    Pyongyang, March 14 (KCNA) --The south Korea-U.S. "Combined Forces Command" officially announced recently that it would stage large-scale joint military exercises from Mar. 25. Minju Joson Tuesday in a signed commentary terms the planned exercises premeditated criminal moves of the U.S. and the south Korean warhawks to push the situation on the Korean Peninsula to the brink of war and demands the U.S. roll back at once its plan to stage the war maneuvers to invade the DPRK. RSOI and Foal Eagle projected by the U.S. are nothing but a replica of "Team Spirit" joint military exercises, a dangerous test nuclear war against the DPRK, the news analyst observes, and goes on:
    By staging the exercises this year, too, the U.S. and south Korean warmongers seek to escalate the tension on the peninsula and push it to the brink of war and thus deter the north-south relations from improving under the banner of the June 15 joint declaration and block the independent reunification of Korea.
    What merits a serious attention is that the south Korean warmongers are chiming in with the U.S. scheme for the invasion of the DPRK. It is clear that this year, too, they seek to stand in military confrontation with the north through war exercises. This is well illustrated by their timing of the joint military exercises with the U.S. By planning to stage this saber rattling at a time when the 18th north-south ministerial talks were in the offing they glaringly revealed that they want neither dialogue nor reunification.
    The south Korean authorities should behave with discretion, pondering over the grave consequences to be entailed by their involvement in the U.S. moves for a war of aggression against the DPRK.
