Pyongyang, July 6 (KCNA) — The Solidarity for Implementing the South-North Joint Declaration reportedly issued a statement on July 1 under the title “Escape Exercise in Preparation for Preemptive Attack: U.S., Give up Scheme to Launch a War against the North.”
Noting that the escape exercise mainly for a quick evacuation of the U.S. troops and their families in case of emergency on the Korean Peninsula was based on a plan for a preemptive attack on the north, the statement said the shameless attitude of the United States was glaringly revealed in the exercise.
It has become clear once again that the U.S. would in no case defend our lives and security, said the statement, and went on:
The peace of the Korean Peninsula can never be safeguarded with illusion about and expectation on the U.S. troops in south Korea.
Peace on the peninsula and the lives of the people must be defended with our own strength. The U.S. troops in south Korea must leave this land quickly.
