Pyongyang, March 14 (KCNA) -- The U.S. and south Korean warmongers are now staging the largest-ever joint military drills Key Resolve and Foal Eagle in the Korean peninsula.
Involved in the drills are huge aggression forces, including the
U.S. and south Korean puppet troops and forces of various vassal
countries, and all types of strategic assets such as U.S. nuclear
carrier, nuclear submarine and nuclear strategic bombers.
The U.S. secretly introduced ammunition and equipment of more than
six million tons into south Korea from the end of last year. It recently
took a measure for urgent evacuation of the families of the U.S.
imperialist aggressor troops present in south Korea and American
citizens staying there ahead of the joint military drills.
From a historical point of view, the nuclear war drills of the U.S.
and south Korean puppet troops have been the root cause of the
touch-and-go situation on the Korean peninsula and they compelled the
DPRK to take the strongest counteractions.
Even at this moment, the "4D Operation" aiming at a preemptive
nuclear attack on the DPRK is being put into concrete shape through
nuclear war drills and exercises targeted neighboring countries are
openly staged under the simulated conditions of THAAD deployment.
Nevertheless, the U.S. asserts that its every nuclear war drill in
south Korea is "annual and defensive" to cope with the DPRK's access to
nuclear weapons. This is nothing but a cynical ploy to shift the
responsibility for the escalating tension on the peninsula onto the DPRK
and justify its scenario for aggression.
It is legitimate right of a sovereign country to self-defence to
maintain high alertness for action as required by the grave situation in
which a war may break out any moment and bolster up in every way the
war deterrence capable of mercilessly wiping out the aggressors.
Peace has been preserved on the peninsula despite the outrageous
moves of the U.S. imperialists for a nuclear war entirely thanks to the
DPRK's resolute will and efforts to protect peace and its tremendous
nuclear deterrence for self-defence.
With no rhetoric can the U.S. cover up its true colors as an arch criminal escalating the tension of the peninsula. -0
