Pyongyang, October 27 (KCNA) — A spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland issued a statement on October 26 to denounce the “Foal Eagle” joint military exercise launched by the United States and the South Korean authorities throughout South Korea against the DPRK.
The statement said:
The war exercise which started on October 26 is participated in by over 35,000 U.S. troops including the U.S. aggression forces stationed in South Korea, the flotilla of the carrier “Kitty Hawk”, the main carrier of the U.S. pacific fleet, and more than 500,000 “ROK army” forces.
Meanwhile, the joint provocative “99 Hwarang” war drill has been staged by civilians, officials and soldiers since Oct. 25.
The United States worked out the “operation plan 5027-98”, a war scenario targeted against the DPRK, and is daily committing military provocations and war exercises against the north after massively reinforcing armed forces.
The “Foal Eagle” is a continuation of the anti-DPRK confrontation and aggression moves of the U.S. bellicose circles and the South Korean ruling quarters to stifle the socialist system of the DPRK.
The Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland in the name of the whole nation vehemently denounces the U.S. and the South Korean authorities for staging the reckless “Foal Eagle” war exercise against the north and bringing the Korean situation to the brink of war.
Unshakable is the stand of the people and people’s army of Korea on the issue of war.
The U.S. and the South Korean authorities should stop rash acts clearly mindful of the will of the Korean people and army to deal a merciless and crushing blow to the enemies.
