S Korea and US joint military exercises undermine peaceful atmosphere on Korean peninsula

Pyongyang, May 16 (Tass) -- The joint military exercises of south Korea and the United States, which ended last week, destroy the peaceful atmosphere on the Korean Peninsula. This is stated in the comments on the official information web portal of the DPRK Arirang Meari, published on Thursday.

"Seoul is responsible for the destruction of the peaceful mood on the peninsula," the article notes. According to the author of the commentary, the two-week military exercises of south Korea and the United States are a "blind act of provocation" and "accelerated preparation for an aggressive war."

The author of the commentary also condemned the recent test flights of two of the latest American fifth-generation multi-purpose fighter F-35A. It is noted that the south Korean military, as the "instigators of war," are responsible for the formation of a "risky environment" on the Korean peninsula, which can again lead to the creation of military tension.

"There is no limit to the number of all the concealedly as well as openly provocative actions that the south Korean military warmongers have so far undertaken against the historical declarations of the north and the south," the commentary underlined.

On September 2018 the south Korean president Moon Jae In visited Pyongyang where he held two rounds of talks with the north Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Following the talks, the Pyongyang Joint Declaration was signed. It was for the normalization of relations between the north and the south. It provides for a package of measures aimed at preventing possible military conflicts. After that, representatives of the United States and south Korea declared their intention to stop joint military maneuvers to accelerate the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

A new round of increased military tensions between Seoul and Pyongyang began after the unsuccessful completion of the Hanoi summit of the United States and the DPRK on February this year. The summit resulted in failing to reach an agreement. After several meetings, including one-on-one, U.S. president Donald Trump and DPRK leader Kim Jong Un did not sign a joint document, only agreeing to continue the dialogue.
