Pyongyang, March 30 (KCNA) — The All-People Measure Committee for Checking the Expansion of the U.S. Military Base in Phyongthaek, south Korea, reportedly issued a statement on Mar. 26. The statement condemned the aggressive joint military exercises aimed at deterring the inter-Korean relations from improving and threatening peace on the Korean Peninsula and strongly urged the United States and the south Korean authorities to immediately stop them.
The U.S. claims these war maneuvers are “annual drills for a defensive purpose” but they are war maneuvers for invading the north launched according to its strategy of a preemptive nuclear attack on the north from every angle as they involve huge armed forces including at least 20,000 U.S. troops and nuclear-powered carrier “Abraham Lincoln”, the statement noted.
It condemned the U.S. for busying itself to expand its military base in Phyongthaek in a bid to secure a military stronghold for preempting an attack on the north according to the agreement reached on the “strategic flexibility” of the U.S. troops and the scenarios for a war against the north and the south Korean authorities for yielding to its pressure.
