Pyongyang, August 13 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) Wednesday made public a statement as regards the large-scale Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military exercises the U.S. is going to stage with the south Korean puppet warmongers from August 17.
The statement said:
Ulji Freedom Guardian is a drill for a surprise nuclear war against
the north as it aims to swallow up the whole of the Korean peninsula
from A to Z, pursuant to the U.S. strategic scenario to secure a pretext
for the permanent presence of its troops in south Korea by aggravating
the situation on the peninsula and hold supremacy in Northeast Asia
through military alliance among the U.S., Japan and south Korea.
The situation clearly proves that the U.S. and the puppet group are
the provocateurs and aggressors harassing peace and stability on the
peninsula and escalating tensions.
Such large-scale joint military exercises as Ulji Freedom Guardian
are little short of a declaration of a war against the DPRK as an
accidental military clash may lead to an all-out war on the Korean
The DPRK is fully ready to counter any war method of the U.S.
imperialists and has a muscle powerful enough to deter a nuclear war to
be provoked by the U.S.
The U.S. and the puppet group of traitors should clearly know that
not only all aggression forces to be involved in the drill but the
strongholds of aggression and provocation including the White House and
Chongwadae are within the sight of ultra-precision striking means of the
revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK.
If the U.S. and puppet group finally preempt an attack, the powerful
revolutionary Paektusan army which never makes an empty talk will
decisively show the mettle of Songun Korea to the provocateurs and
aggressors with its merciless blows.
