Lee Myung Bak Group and U.S. and Japanese Aggressors Urged to Act with Discretion

Korean Central News Agency of DPRK via Korea News Service (KNS)

Pyongyang, March 9 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the General Staff of the Korean People's Army Monday issued the following statement in connection with the fact that the bellicose group of traitor Lee Myung Bak has embarked upon starting the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint war exercises against the DPRK in collusion with the U.S. imperialists at last despite the repeated warnings of the KPA:

Carrier task force, strategic bomber corps and other huge armed forces of the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces have already been deployed in south Korea and its vicinity and the armed forces of the three services of the puppet army have already started the exercises for a war of aggression against the DPRK.

These war exercises were kicked off at a time when the U.S. and Japanese aggressors and the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors, not content with claiming that the DPRK should "dismantle its nuclear weapons first," have mobilized huge ground and coastal interceptor means in a bid to prevent the DPRK from launching a satellite for peaceful purposes.

In view of the prevailing grave situation the General Staff of the KPA solemnly declares as follows in order to protect the supreme interests of the country and the nation from the war maniacs' reckless moves for aggression against the DPRK:

1. Our revolutionary armed forces will counter the enemies' any slight hostile acts of violating the sovereignty of the country and intruding into its inviolable territory, territorial waters and territorial air with prompt merciless military actions.

It is the invariable stand of our revolutionary armed forces fully ready for all-out confrontation not to allow any enemies to intrude into our territory, territorial waters and territorial air even 0.001 mm.

2. We will retaliate any act of intercepting our satellite for peaceful purposes with prompt counter strikes by the most powerful military means.

If the enemies recklessly opt for intercepting our satellite, our revolutionary armed forces will launch without hesitation a just retaliatory strike operation not only against all the interceptor means involved but against the strongholds of the U.S. and Japanese aggressors and the south Korean puppets who hatched plots to intercept it.

Shooting our satellite for peaceful purposes will precisely mean a war.

3. As an immediate measure we will enforce a more strict military control and cut off the north-south military communications in order to guarantee the security in the opened Eastern and Western coastal areas under the control of the north and the south while the DPRK-targeted war exercises are under way.

It is nonsensical to maintain normal communications channel at a time when the south Korean puppets are getting frantic with the above-said war exercises, leveling guns at fellow countrymen in league with foreign forces.

Accordingly, our army will cut off the military communications, the last channel which has existed between the north and the south, from March 9.

The Lee Myung Bak group of traitors and the U.S. and Japanese aggressors would be well advised to behave with discretion.
