Pyongyang, August 25 (KCNA) — The DPRK-targeted war exercise is a dangerous military adventure to escalate the confrontation and tension on the Korean peninsula and provoke a war of aggression against it, says Rodong Sinmun Wednesday in a signed article.
It goes on:
The U.S. is instigating the south Korean authorities to drive the favorably developing inter-Korean relations to a crisis and is staging such joint military exercise against the DPRK as “Ulji Focus Lens-04.” These disturbing developments are beclouding the atmosphere of the movement for peace and reunification of the Korean peninsula and bringing the danger of a nuclear war to it.
The on-going joint military exercise is bound to stoke the distrust and military confrontation between the DPRK and the U.S.
Huge armed forces of both sides are mentally and physically standing in an acute confrontation with each other with the Military Demarcation Line in between on the Korean peninsula.
The U.S. is performing dangerous rope-dancing which may drive the Korean peninsula into a war crisis in a moment, oblivious of the fact that the DPRK and the U.S. are still technically at war and in disregard of the provisions of the Armistice Agreement.
The large-scale U.S.-south Korea joint military exercise is a main link in the whole chain of the U.S. imperialists’ moves for a war of aggression against the DPRK in south Korea.
Through the joint military exercise, the U.S. imperialists seek to verify the effectiveness and feasibility of the “operation plan 5027-04” which has been modified and supplemented with more adventurous operations to invade the DPRK according to the new war doctrine and put it into a perfect shape.
All the joint military war exercises and hostile military acts against the DPRK in south Korea should be halted unconditionally to avert the danger of war and achieve durable peace on the Korean peninsula.
