Pyongyang, January 23 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is persistently resorting to the dangerous military acts of going against the aspiration of the public at home and abroad for detente on the Korean Peninsula.
From the beginning of this year the U.S. successively sent nuclear carrier flotillas and nuclear strategic bombers to the vicinity of the peninsula. It announced that it would conduct two ICBM test-fires next month.
This can never be allowed as it is a revelation of the sinister intention to block the improvement of the inter-Korean relations and aggravate the situation in the region.
Peace and security on the Korean Peninsula are directly linked with world peace and security. That is why the international community hails the climate for the improvement of the inter-Korean relations provided thanks to our proactive proposal and calls for encouraging and promoting it.
Contrary to this, the U.S. openly increases the military pressure upon the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and unhesitatingly upsets the balance of armed forces in the region.
It is self-evident that ICBM test-fire would not be "fireworks" for the Winter Olympics.
It is by no means fortuitous that media of the U.S. say that war maniacs do not cover up their precaution against the prospect for peace on the Korean Peninsula.
The U.S. is now trying to justify such moves under the pretence of "guaranteeing Olympics" and "already planned". However, it can never veil the wicked intention.
It is as clear as noonday that any military action of the U.S. will lead to the aggravation of the tension in the region and it would not bring good consequences.
The U.S. acts are clearly targeted against peace in the Korean Peninsula and the region and they disclose the true colors of the U.S. standing for confrontation and war, not dialogue and peace.
Genuine peace and stability have not settled in the Korean Peninsula and the region for a long time. The reality makes the people understand where the root cause is.
The DPRK will never allow any act of wrecking peace and security in the Peninsula but will decisively counter it.
The U.S. should always remember that the entire Korean nation and international community vigilantly watch the sinister military acts of deliberately aggravating the situation. -0-
