On the U.S. war exercises to be held in south Korea
Dear friends in Asia and the Pacific,
We are sending this letter in connection with the U.S. war exercises to be held in south Korea.
The United States is planning to stage large-scale war exercises under the changed codename Key Resolve and Foal Eagle with south Korea forces from March 2 to 7 with tens of thousands of troops and modern war hardware involved. Even nuclear-powered carrier Nimits is expected to participate in these war maneuvers.
The U.S. hawks are renaming the military exercises staged in the past as the international community denounced them as war exercises to invade the DPRK. The renaming cannot change the aggressive and provocative nature of the war exercises at all.
Through these war exercises the U S. war-like forces seek to more tightly bind south Korea to the military alliance with the U.S. and consolidate the foundation of their aggressor forces presence in it in a bid to realize their scenario for a war of aggression against the north and their ambition for establishing the sphere of military control over Asia.
The fact that the U.S. is ceaselessly staging nuclear war exercises in south Korea is an intolerable crime against peace and reunification casting a chill over the Korean nation¡Çs desire for reunification and putting a brake on inter-Korean dialogue and cooperation.
The projected joint military war exercise of the U.S. runs counter to the six-party talks. Through the adventurous nuclear test war exercise they intend to pose a serious menace to the DPRK and spoil the atmosphere for dialogue.
Leveling a gun at dialogue partner while talking about the dialogue and the improved relations is an act contrary to common sense and diplomatic practice.
The U.S. hawks¡Ç reckless moves for a new war which escalate the situation on the Korean Peninsula not only pose a direct threat to the security of the DPRK but also seriously affect the situation in the whole of Asia.
The escalating war exercises in south Korea cannot be justified in any case.
It is our firm belief that you will closely follow the situation on the Korean peninsula and the Northeast Asia and denounce the war games of the U.S. warlike forces and support the Korean people in their struggle for peace and prosperity of Korea, as well as her independent and peaceful reunification.
Looking forward to an affirmative response to this letter, we remain,
