Pyongyang, August 2 (KCNA) — A spokesman for the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front in a statement on July 31 denounced the United States and the south Korean trigger-happy forces for having planned to stage the Ulji Focus Lens large-scale joint military exercises, according to Internet site Kuguk Jonson.
Recalling that recently the south Korea-U.S. “Combined Forces Command” officially announced that it would stage Ulji Focus Lens in south Korea from August 21 to September 1, the statement branded this as a blatant challenge to the desire of the whole nation and a prelude to a military attack on the north.
The U.S. is seeking to justify its war moves while talking about “threat” of the north’s military power for self-defence but it can neither conceal its belligerent nature nor shirk off the responsibility for having escalated the tension on this land and disturbed its peace, the statement noted.
It demanded the present south Korean authorities stop at once all the joint military exercises with the U.S., well aware that joining the aggressors in their war moves is a crime against the nation.
