Removal of Source of War Urged

Pyongyang, July 28 (KCNA) -- To remove the source of war and ensure peace becomes the urgent task under the present situation in which the U.S. and south Korean puppet forces are escalating their moves to ignite a war against the DPRK, says Rodong Sinmun Wednesday in a signed article.

It goes on:

At present there is not any legal guarantee for peace and security of the Korean Peninsula. The Korean Armistice Agreement has already been reduced to a mere scrap of paper due to the maneuvers of the bellicose forces at home and abroad threatening peace and security of the peninsula. All the inter-Korean agreements on removing the military confrontation and tension were nullified and the north-south dialogue and cooperation, which had been kept even in the era of confrontation, were suspended under the present south Korean conservative authorities' policy of stamping out the inter-Korean declarations. This is the aftermath of the deliberate and premeditated maneuvers on the part of the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces seeking to provoke the second Korean war at any cost.

Any problem can not be correctly solved without ensuring peace and security on the Korean Peninsula.

The main source of disturbing peace on the peninsula is the U.S. constant hostile policy toward the DPRK. The U.S. should stop at once its criminal hostile policy that escalates the military confrontation and tension on the peninsula and brings the danger of a war against the DPRK.

The unstable armistice system lasting more than half a century becomes a source of military tension and possible outbreak of war. The Armistice Agreement should be replaced with a peace treaty to establish a durable peacekeeping mechanism.

Large-scale joint military exercises and arms buildup, being ceaselessly conducted in south Korea, are the most realistic danger. The reckless anti-DPRK joint military exercises and arms buildup in south Korea, which pose military threat to the fellow countrymen and bring the danger of a war, should be discontinued unconditionally.
