Pyongyang, March 24 (KCNA) — Over 60 public organizations in the north and the south of Korea and abroad made public a joint statement on Mar. 23 to declare that the more the U.S. and the anti-reunification forces escalate military exercises for a nuclear war, the firmer the Korean nation will get united to counter them in defence of peace against war.
The “RSOI” and “Foal Eagle” joint military exercises will mark an occasion in hastening the relocation of the U.S. forces in south Korea, their conversion into rapid task force and the updating of the aggression weapons deployed in the Korean Peninsula, and this will make the south Korean people shoulder the relevant economic burdens, the joint statement said, and went on:
We will smash the U.S. nuclear blackmail by the concerted efforts of our nation and foil the south Korea-U.S. joint military exercises with our struggle to defend peace and drive the U.S. forces out of south Korea.
We will more dynamically step up the grand march for great national unity under the uplifted banner of “By our nation itself” in order to force the U.S. troops out of south Korea.
We, the forces for June 15 reunification, will sharpen the edge of progress to mercilessly mow down those anti-reunification forces which are shooting their mouth off, inspired by the “RSOI” and “Foal Eagle” joint military exercises.
