Halt to US-S. Korean Military Exercises Demanded-KCNA

Halt to US-S. Korean Military Exercises Demanded

Pyongyang, August 26 (KCNA) -- The Switzerland-Korea Committee and the Group for the Study of the Juche Idea of Switzerland issued a joint statement on August 15 demanding a halt to the U.S.-south Korea joint military exercises.

Accusing the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet forces of having staged joint military exercises one after another recently, the statement held that these war maneuvers were aimed to round off a criminal offensive scenario to stifle the DPRK, a sovereign state and member nation of the UN.

The Songun politics pursued by Kim Jong Il serves as an all-powerful treasured sword which helped have access to nuclear deterrent for providing a sure guarantee for the sovereignty of the DPRK and peace on the Korean Peninsula, the statement noted, warning that the reckless acts of the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet clique would end up meeting a miserable end.

The organizations strongly denounce the criminal and aggressive Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military exercises, the statement noted, declaring they would join in the world-wide protest action calling for its stop.

Extending solidarity to the DPRK and supporting all the measures taken by it to defend the sovereignty, the statement urged the U.S. imperialists to stop the moves to ignite a war against the DPRK.

The vice-chairman of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Czech and Moravia issued a statement on August 18 in protest against the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet forces' war exercises.
