KPA to Counter with Its Positive Retaliatory Blows Any Attempt to Stifle DPRK by Force of ArmsPyongyang, March 2 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Panmunjom Mission of the Korean People's Army (KPA) released a statement on Sunday as regards the fact that the U.S. and south Korean bellicose forces started what they called Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises under the simulated conditions of the second Korean war across south Korea on March 2.
The south Korea-U.S. joint military exercises that have started under the new codename of Key Resolve that replaced RSOI are aimed at leading a war to "victory" through the "effective deployment of U.S. reinforcements in case of 'contingency'" and thereby stifling the DPRK by force of arms, the statement noted, and continued:
The U.S. is staging madcap war maneuvers together with the south Korean bellicose forces after forward-deploying a field commanding mechanism for aggression in south Korea and in its vicinity and massively beefing up its air force. This is an indication that the U.S. is in the process of testing and examining a new war method under the simulated conditions of an actual war, the method of reducing the areas of the DPRK to ashes through preemptive air strikes including nuclear attack from the outset of the war and hurling its ground forces there.
The U.S. military is frantically pushing ahead with the arms buildup and war maneuvers at a time when the U.S. and south Korean conservative hardliners are letting loose such reckless remarks as "north Korea failed to meet the deadline to implement the October 3 agreement" and "it is necessary to take new measures if it continues delaying the nuclear declaration." This is an open and blatant challenge to the denuclearization and peace of the Korean Peninsula.
All facts clearly prove once again that the U.S. does not have any idea of dropping its hostile policy toward the DPRK at all and its loudmouthed "dialogue," "end to the state of armistice" and "denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" are nothing but a crafty charade intended to cover up its preparations for a nuclear war, disarm the DPRK and mislead the world public opinion.
The KPA has never expected any benefit from the dialogue with the U.S.
If the U.S. and south Korean bellicose forces persistently work to realize their scenario to stifle the DPRK by force of arms at any cost, the KPA will not stand passively on the defensive but counter it with positive retaliatory strikes by mobilizing all means long built up by the DPRK at a high price.
In this case the U.S. and its followers will be wholly responsible for all the ensuing consequences
