CPRF Spokesman Assails U.S. Arms Buildup in S. Korea

Pyongyang, August 31 (KCNA) — The U.S. is contemplating deploying a squadron of Alaska-based F-15E fighter-bombers of the U.S. Air Force into south Korea in September for an exercise aimed to familiarize themselves with terrain conditions in case of contingency on the Korean peninsula.

A spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland (CPRF) in a statement issued on Monday in this regard said:

This goes to prove that the U.S. moves to mount a full-scale preemptive attack on the DPRK have reached an extremely reckless phase.

The U.S. has so far pretended to be deeply interested in improving the hostile relations between the DPRK and the U.S. and seeking a negotiated solution to the nuclear issue, asserting that it has never pursued the hostile policy towards the DPRK and that it is the U.S. stand to find a negotiated diplomatic settlement of the nuclear issue.

However, the Bush administration has desperately escalated the massive arms buildup and war exercises targeted against the DPRK under the signboard of “dialogue” and “peace.” This once again clearly indicates that its loudmouthed “talks” and “dialogue” are nothing but a deceptive farce to cover its aggressive and predatory nature and Washington remains unchanged in its ambition to stifle the DPRK by force.

It is as clear as daylight that if a war is ignited by the U.S. forces on the Korean peninsula all Koreans in the north and the south will suffer a horrible nuclear disaster.

If the U.S. is allowed to escalate its reckless arms buildup and war exercises, they will bring irrevocable calamities to all Koreans.

The U.S. should unconditionally stop such reckless arms buildup as introducing F-15E fighter-bombers into south Korea and withdraw its aggressor forces and military equipment from south Korea without delay.

Meanwhile, the south Korean authorities should ponder over the consequences to be entailed by their treacherous act of bringing aggressor forces into south Korea from outside.
