DPRK to Take Every Necessary Measure to Protect Its Sovereignty

Pyongyang, March 11 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Ministry of Foreign Affairs gave the following answer to the question raised by KCNA on Mar. 11 as regards the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises kicked off by the U.S. and the south Korean puppets:

The U.S. and the south Korean puppets started large-scale war exercises targeted against the DPRK on Mar. 9 at last.

These war exercises were kicked off by the U.S. and the south Korean puppet war-like forces across south Korea at a time when the inter-Korean relations have reached the worst phase and the situation has grown so tense that a war may break out any moment due to the reckless policy of confrontation pursued by the south Korean conservative authorities. The war maneuvers are nuclear war exercises designed to mount a preemptive attack on the DPRK in terms of their scale and contents from A to Z.

Involved in the exercises are far greater number of U.S. troops present overseas and more offensive military equipment including two nuclear-powdered carriers and nuclear submarines than those mobilized in the previous war maneuvers. Their duration is double that of the saber rattling staged before.

No one can vouch that the U.S. and the south Korean puppet bellicose forces will not play with fire against the DPRK while staging such dangerous war exercises.

The new administration of the U.S. is now working hard to infringe upon the sovereignty of the DPRK by force of arms in collusion with the south Korean puppet bellicose forces after letting loose a whole string of words and deeds little short of getting on the nerves of the DPRK and seriously interfering in its internal affairs.

This situation hardens the will of the DPRK to bolster up its defence capability in every way no matter what others may say.

The DPRK, exposed to the potential threat of the U.S. and its allied forces, will take every necessary measure to protect its sovereignty.
