Pyongyang, March 7 (KCNA) -- South Korea and the U.S. reportedly started a joint military drill under new codename Alliance from March 4.
South Korea and the U.S. announced that the drill Alliance is the one replacing the former Key Resolve and it will continue until March 12. As for joint military drill Foal Eagle, they said they would stage it without codename round the year in the form of small-scale field mobile drill involving units smaller than battalion.
They said that the on-going drill aims at examining wartime operation plan through computer-aided simulation of "the north's all-out invasion of the south" and increasing the capabilities to fight a war.
The ill-boding moves of the south Korean military authorities and the U.S. are a wanton violation of the DPRK-U.S. joint statement and the north-south declarations in which the removal of hostility and tensions were committed to, and an open challenge to the aspiration and desire of all Koreans and the international community for peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula. -0-
