Pyongyang, June 29 (KCNA) -- A spokesman of the Pan-Korean Emergency Measure Committee for Opposing Nuclear War Drills against the DPRK released a statement Thursday to condemn the U.S. for recently enhancing military threat and blackmail against the DPRK while imposing the toughest sanctions on it.
The statement said:
The U.S. has deployed USS Nimitz strike group in the western Pacific,
the operational theater of its 7th Fleet. The nuclear carrier strike
group is going to kick off a naval operation for tackling the
contingency on the Korean peninsula together with the already deployed
Ronald Reagan nuclear carrier strike group.
Against this backdrop, the U.S. brought its B-1B formation stationed on
Guam to the sky above south Korea on June 20 to stage a mock nuclear
bomb dropping drill. It is blustering that it will let its strategic
bombers make sorties toward the sky above the peninsula more than once a
It also brought long-range air-to-surface missiles to its airbase in
Kunsan, North Jolla Province of south Korea in a bid to strike
Pyongyang, the capital city of the DPRK, and other major strategic
objects. And it let the commander of the Second Division of its army
present in south Korea call for "scaling up south Korea-U.S. joint
drills" in a public appearance.
This is just a risky and reckless military move driving the already
acute situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war
and a blatant challenge to all Koreans and other peace-loving peoples in
the world aspiring after peace and security on the peninsula.
What merits more serious attention is the fact that the U.S. is hyping
its outrageous military pressure on the DPRK through media, continuously
bringing its lethal hardware for a nuclear war to the peninsula.
This shows that the U.S. military scenario to ignite a nuclear war on
the peninsula at any cost has gone beyond the red line and the Trump
administration's advertisement for the exclusion of military option from
the "maximum pressure and engagement" policy is no more than a sly
trick to cover up their scenario for a war against the DPRK including a
preemptive nuclear strike.
The Trump administration should not run riot, thinking twice about the
catastrophic consequences to be entailed by its foolhardy military
moves. It should properly understand the spirit and will of the Korean
army and people to annihilate the enemy and finally conclude the
standoff with the U.S. -0-
