Pyongyang, August 27 (KCNA) — The Reunification Solidarity, the People for Achieving Peace and Reunification (Phyongthongsa), the National People’s Solidarity and other civil and social organizations in south Korea reportedly called a news conference in front of the U.S. military base in Ryongsan, Seoul, on Aug. 23, the day when the adventurous “Ulji Focus Lens-04” joint military exercises began, and declared that they would turn out in a struggle to remove the threat of a war on the Korean peninsula.
Hong Kun Su, permanent representative of Phyongthongsa, and other speakers said the war game was aimed at carrying into practice the “operation plan 5027-04” which is the sum total of all the scenarios of “a preemptive strike at the north”, and warned that the high-handed war policy of the United States directed against Korea’s reunification would bring not only the destruction of the south and the north but also irreversible grave consequences to the U.S. itself.
Read out at the news conference was a press release titled “The U.S. should promptly stop the ‘Ulji Focus Lens-04’, a military drill simulating a real war of aggression against the north and leave this land”.
To frustrate the U.S. moves for a war against the DPRK, get the hateful ultra-modern weapons withdrawn and force the U.S. troops, a tool for a war of aggression, finally out of south Korea is an imperative task to defend the lives of the Koreans and the only way to achieve peace and reunification on the Korean peninsula, the press release said. It declared that the civic and social organizations would get united and rise up in a decisive struggle to thwart the war threat on the Korean peninsula posed by the U.S. move for a war against the north which is intended to ignite the second Korean war.
