Pyongyang, March 29 (KCNA) — The World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) released a statement on March 25 to denounce the U.S. and the south Korean bellicose forces’ joint military exercises RSOI and Foal Eagle.
It is very clear that those large-scale military exercises are targeted on the DPRK, the statement noted, and continued:
The WFTU on behalf of the working class in the Asia-Pacific region bitterly denounces the on-going RSOI and Foal Eagle and strongly demands the U.S. and the south Korean authorities immediately stop working hard to start a war and laying an obstacle to Korea’s reunification.
The Indian Institute for Foreign Policy Studies in a statement on Mar. 26 held that through these military exercises the U.S. seeks to instigate the south Korean bellicose forces to escalate the tension on the Korean Peninsula in a bid to scuttle the six-party talks, bedevil the inter-Korean relations heading for reconciliation under the banner of the June 15 joint declaration and block the independent reunification of Korea.
It is entirely just for the Korean people to have built strong nuclear deterrent for self-defence to cope with the U.S. moves for a nuclear war, pursuant to the Songun politics of leader Kim Jong Il, the statement said, expressing positive support and solidarity with the Korean people in their struggle for national reunification.
