S. Korean Authorities Urged to Stop Their Moves for Confrontation and War
Pyongyang, March 13 (KCNA) -- The south Korean authorities′ pursuance of the policy for confrontation and war is a treacherous one and leads to their self-destruction, warns Rodong Sinmun Sunday in a bylined article.
The large-scale Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises staged by the south Korean authorities in collaboration with outside forces are intolerable treachery as they brought the inter-Korean relations to the worst phase and brought the danger of a nuclear war to the Korean Peninsula.
They staged the joint saber-rattling aimed at mounting a preemptive nuclear strike at the DPRK in collaboration with America at a time when the improvement of the inter-Korean ties presents itself as a more urgent issue than ever before. It admits of no argument that this is a deliberate move to deteriorate the north-south ties.
The south Korean authorities are gravely mistaken. They go reckless, without properly knowing who their rival is.
They are vociferating about somebody′s "contingency" but it can never happen in the DPRK. Their saber-rattling is as foolish an act as precipitating their own self-destruction.
The DPRK sets store by the improved inter-Korean relations but will never remain a passive onlooker to the reckless war moves of the trigger-happy elements keen to bring them to collapse and step up their moves for confrontation and war.
If the south Korean authorities keep pursuing the policy for confrontation and war, defying the need of the times and desire of all the fellow countrymen, they will not be able to escape the nation′s stern judgment.
