NPCK Spokesman Denounces Hoguk Drills in S. Korea

Pyongyang, November 13 (KCNA) -- The spokesman for the National Peace Committee of Korea (NPCK) Thursday made public a statement in denunciation of the largest-ever 2014 Hoguk drills kicked off by the south Korean puppet group on Monday.

The statement said that the Hoguk drills more bellicose than ever before are an intolerable mockery at all Koreans and the international community desirous of the improved inter-Korean relations and peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and an unpardonable grave provocation to the DPRK. It went on:

The DPRK has made every possible effort for national reconciliation and unity and improvement of the north-south relations despite the complicated situation.

Contrary to this, the south Korean puppet group fired bullets and shells at the DPRK's warship and service personnel on a routine patrol duty in the hotspot waters in the West Sea and the area along the Military Demarcation Line. It hurled human scum into ceaseless leaflet scattering operations hurting the dignity and social system of the DPRK, driving the north-south relations to an extreme phase of confrontation.

Meanwhile, the south Korean regime is going all the more frantic in its moves to unleash a war against the north as evidenced by the introduction of PAC 3 from the U.S. and the staging of a drill to counter the north's new type sub by use of a U.S. sub, talking about Kill Chain and the building of a missile shield.

The Hoguk kicked off by the south Korean warmongers under such situation is aimed at rounding off the preparations for a nuclear war against the north together with their American master and pushing the tensions to an extreme pitch to start a war at any cost.

It is also designed to justify the criminal indefinite extension of the transfer of the right to wartime operation control and south Korea's involvement in the U.S. building of its missile shield and boost the morale of the south Korean puppet army that sagged due to its worst military discipline and corruption in a bid to use it as a shock brigade in a war against the north and tide over its serious ruling crisis through a security row.

No matter how noisily the puppet chief executive is crying out for 'the north's dismantlement of nukes' and talking about the 'Northeast Asian peace and cooperation' in the international arena after reducing south Korea to a theater of war drills, no one would lend an ear to her. She will only become a laughing stock of the world.

Those who are fond of playing with fire are bound to perish in the flames kindled by themselves.
