NPCK raps US and S Korean warmongers

STATEMENT
By National Peace Committee of Korea Spokesperson

The spokesman for the National Peace Committee of Korea (NPCK) issued a statement on Thursday:

The U.S. and south Korean war-like forces openly disclosed their plan to stage Ulji Freedom Guardian, nuclear war exercises targeted against the DPRK.

The south Korean puppet military gangsters announced that they would formally apply their "tailored deterrence strategy" and the like to those drills to be staged under the simulated conditions of an actual war, asserting they would fully put into practice new strategic conceptions to cope with the "nuclear and missile threats" from the north.

Their projected war exercises are not only a blatant challenge to the sincere efforts of the DPRK for improving the inter-Korean relations and achieving peace and detente on the Korean peninsula but also a grave military provocation against the DPRK.

Worse still, their formal announcement of the plan to apply their "tailored deterrence strategy", a plan for a preemptive nuclear strike at the DPRK, is little short of a declaration of a nuclear war against it.

The U.S. and puppet military gangsters are taking issue with the military drills staged by the DPRK in its own territory, while conducting madcap nuclear war maneuvers targeted against it in south Korea and waters off it almost every day with the mobilization of large-scale aggressor troops including nuclear carrier.

This is nothing but sheer sophism of shameless robbers and a ridiculous reckless action which can be conducted only by them.

The U.S. and the puppet group should bear in mind that all aggressor forces to be involved in the projected drills, the military bases in south Korea and overseas, the White House, Pentagon, Chongwadae and all other bases for aggression and provocations will be targets of the powerful ultra-modern high-precision firepower strike means including strategic and tactical rockets of the DPRK's revolutionary armed forces.

The U.S. and puppet warmongers should not misjudge the efforts of the DPRK for ensuring peace and its patience and stop the projected nuclear war maneuvers against the DPRK at once.
