Pyongyang, March 17 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the North Headquarters of the Pan-national Alliance for Korea's Reunification (Pomminryon) issued a statement Tuesday to denounce the U.S.-south Korea joint military exercises.
The statement branded their reckless north-targeted war maneuvers as
a grave act aimed at provoking a war at any cost and a blatant
challenge to the aspiration and desire of all Koreans for peace and
If the U.S. and south Korean puppet forces persist in the moves for
confrontation and war, they will lead to a nuclear war, it noted.
Now is the time for all Koreans to turn out in the all-people
resistance against the U.S. and south Korean puppet forces in order to
defuse the danger of a war, it said.
It demanded the U.S. imperialist aggressors and the south Korean
puppet forces clearly face up to the ever-mounting Korean nation's
resistance to the U.S. and stop at once the north-targeted joint
military exercises and moves for escalating confrontation.
It said that Pomminryon would take the lead in the sacred war of
justice to defuse the danger of a nuclear war on the Korean peninsula
and achieve the peace and independent reunification of the country hand
in hand with all Koreans at home and abroad.
It stressed that the entire Korean nation including organizations of
people of all social standings in south Korea and overseas should rise
up in the patriotic struggle for reunification to resolutely smash the
moves of the U.S. imperialists and south Korean puppet forces for
confrontation and war moves, safeguard the peace of the country and the
security of the nation and bring about great changes and innovations in
the inter-Korean relations this significant year marking the 15th
anniversary of the historic June 15 joint declaration and the 70th
anniversary of Korea's liberation to open up a wide avenue to
independent reunification. -0-
