    Pyongyang, March 29 (KCNA) -- The RSOI and Foal Eagle joint military exercises against the DPRK launched by the U.S. imperialists together with the south Korean military bellicose forces on Mar. 25 are a grave challenge to the desire of the people at home and abroad for peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula, and they are driving the situation in the region to the brink of confrontation and war. Rodong Sinmun Wednesday says this in a signed commentary. Denouncing them as very reckless and dangerous war drills which destroy the process of dialogue for settlement of the nuclear issue between the DPRK and the U.S. and pose a grave threat to the security of the Korean nation and the cause of Korea's reunification, the commentary says:
    The U.S., in its recent "national security strategy report", pulled up the dignified DPRK again, revealing its scheme to mount a preemptive attack upon the latter. At present, the conflict and friction between the DPRK and the U.S. over the six-party talks for solving the nuclear issue are not likely to be settled but are growing more serious.
    The U.S. has laid artificial obstacles to the talks under the absurd pretext while staging the war gambles against the DPRK.
    The situation is growing tenser than ever before and the prospect of peace and denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula appears remote due to the persistent anti-DPRK policy of the U.S. and its moves for a war.
    Nevertheless, the south Korean bellicose forces are recklessly toeing the U.S. line. Aggression troops do not distinguish the north from the south in using nukes and, accordingly, to follow them is as good as inviting a nuclear disaster. The DPRK has clarified more than once that the right to a preemptive attack is not a monopoly of the U.S.
    The U.S. imperialists and the south Korean bellicose forces would be well advised to clearly understand the will of the DPRK and behave with discretion.
