KCNA Blasts Projected Joint Military Maneuvers

KCNA Blasts Projected Joint Military Maneuvers

Pyongyang, July 24 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is set to kick off large-scale joint naval maneuvers together with the south Korean puppet forces at any cost from July 25, defying the protest and denunciation of the international community.

According to a plan announced at the U.S.-south Korea talks of "defense chiefs" on July 20, the projected exercises are air, sea and ground joint drills beyond imagination in terms of scale and style.

The U.S. and the south Korean puppet warmongers are contemplating staging the largest-ever joint military exercises in decades with at least 20 warships of various types including nuclear-powered carrier George Washington belonging to the U.S. 7th fleet and huge war hardware and troops including F-22 Raptor involved.

The U.S. had already started the largest-ever joint naval maneuvers with Japan and Australia in waters off Okinawa with task force flotilla with a nuclear carrier as a flag ship, missile cruisers, destroyers, submarines and a lot of aircraft involved.

The reckless military racket kicked up by the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces is a dangerous military move to ignite a new war on the Korean Peninsula at any cost.

The peninsula, a gateway to Northeast Asia, is a strategic vantage for realizing the U.S. Asia strategy for aggression.

The U.S. which fabricated the "Cheonan" case considers it as a good opportunity for interfering in Northeast Asia by force of arms.

It wants to seize the projected military exercises as a golden chance for shuffling off the responsibility for the warship case upon the DPRK at any cost, defying international public opinion skeptical about the "results of investigation" into the case, and demonstrating its military presence and muscle.

Also lurking behind it is its attempt to contain big powers and put pressure upon them by force worldwide.

Through the above-said saber-rattling the U.S. seeks to "threaten" countries in the region and send a strong "warning message" to somebody.

The above-said war maneuvers are a blatant challenge to the human desire for peace as they are to be kicked off by the U.S. at a time when the international community is faced with an important political task to stabilize the situation on the Korean Peninsula and ensure lasting peace in the region.

There is no doubt that the enemies' escalated military stand-off with the DPRK would compel the latter to reinforce its retaliatory measures to safeguard the supreme interests of the country and the nation.

It is the steadfast mode of counteraction of the DPRK to return fire for fire. It never makes an empty talk.

The U.S. and the south Korean warlike forces should immediately cancel the projected reckless nuclear war exercises, clearly facing up to the reality.
