Pyongyang, July 24 (KCNA) — The “RIMPAC-2006” joint military exercise has been going on in the Pacific from June 25 in defiance of strong opposition in Korea and abroad.
The mass media of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea comes out with commentaries and articles branding the “RIMPAC”, into which a huge amount of latest war means are hurled, as a dangerous multi-national war exercise against the north that accords with the adventurous nuclear preemptive attack strategy of the U.S. imperialists.
Rodong Sinmun condemns the warhawks of the south Korean military as traitors to the nation. They have mobilized huge armed forces to the provocative war gamble against the fellow countrymen and are engrossed in war provocations with arms given by foreign forces. The paper warns that the whole nation will never pardon such renegades of the June 15 joint declaration.
South Korean organizations including the South Headquarters of the National Alliance for the Country’s Reunification (Pomminryon) and the Solidarity for Implementation of the South-North Joint Declaration in their statements note that the “RIMPAC” is the most provocative and dangerous war exercise against the north in the light of its scale and period. The U.S. which incites only confrontation and war is the chieftain of war crisis.
Overseas Koreans also strongly demand that the war exercise be given up.
The United Confederation of Koreans in the Far Eastern Region of the Russian Federation sent a letter to Bush, the head of U.S.warhawks. It demands that the United States give up anachronistic wild dream to hold in check the independent reunification and prosperity of the Korean nation while deliberately aggravating the DPRK-U.S. relations, branding the joint military exercise as a grave provocation against the DPRK.
The international community is also joining the Koreans in denouncing the exercise. The British Association for the Study of the Songun Policy, the British Friendship Society with Korea and the British Branch of Association for Friendship with the Korean People issued a joint statement, calling upon the world progressive people to oppose the war exercise of the U.S. imperialists and its followers and firmly unite for supporting the socialist Korea.
