Pyongyang, August 25 (KCNA) — A spokesman for the National Democratic Front of south Korea (NDFSK) released a statement on Aug. 23 as regards the “Ulji Focus Lens-04” joint war game launched by the United States and the south Korean war-thirsty elements in defiance of the strong protest at home and abroad, according to the Kuguk Jonson Internet site.
Noting that the joint maneuvers are a massive war game involving the U.S. forces in south Korea, the south Korean army and U.S. military units overseas, which is, to all intents and purposes, very dangerous nuclear war exercise intended to carry into practice the “operation plan 5027-04”, a new war scenario targeted against the DPRK, the spokesman says:
It is a crime never to be condoned that the south Korean and U.S. bellicose forces are putting a brake on the development of the inter-Korean relations and bringing dark clouds of a new war, a nuclear war to this land by the reckless joint drill:
It cannot be construed otherwise than quite a dangerous anti-national criminal act to bring nuclear disaster on the heads of the Korean nation, the Korean people that the warhawks in this land are going to mount a military attack on the people of the north, their fellow countrymen, hand in hand with the U.S. even in the era of the June 15 independent reunification.
The bellicose forces in the south Korean military should refrain from acting rashly, mindful that such criminal act of joining the U.S., with their sleeves rolled up, in its war moves against the north will certainly be judged by history and the nation.
The U.S. should stop at once the harebrained war maneuvers against the north and pull out without delay its forces which have been left without justification to stay in south Korea, facing up to the unanimous desire and unshakable will of the Korean nation to reunify the country independently and peacefully by implementing the June 15 joint declaration.
