Pyongyang, July 21 (KCNA) -- The puppet Ministry of National Defence on July 20 announced that the south Korea-U.S. joint naval maneuvers would be staged in the East Sea of Korea, according to a report of south Korean MBC.
To be involved in the above-said maneuvers to take place between July 25 and 28 are at least 8 000 troops of the U.S. imperialist aggression forces and south Korean puppet army, nuclear-powered carrier "George Washington" belonging to the U.S. 7th fleet, over 20 warships including submarines and more than 200 aircraft including a formation of "F-22A Raptor".
The puppet warmongers declared that the projected military maneuvers, the largest in the history of the naval military exercises, are aimed to tighten the "alliance" for invading the DPRK and they would go on in waters of the East and West Seas of Korea in the future.
This is nothing but foolish desperate efforts of the U.S. imperialists and the Lee Myung Bak puppet group to divert elsewhere the international attention and tide over their crisis through their moves for a war of aggression against the DPRK after coming under worldwide fire for faking up the case of warship "Cheonan."
