S. Korean Authorities Should Break with Idea of Confrontation: KCNA Commentary

Date: 25/05/2019 | Source: KCNA.kp (En) | Read original version at source

Pyongyang, May 25 (KCNA) -- Recently, the U.S. Strategic Command made public that the south Korean military authorities took part for the first time in the nuclear attack drill Global Thunder that took place secretly at an air force base in North Dakota State, U.S. in November last year.

As known, Global Thunder drill is an annual global nuclear war drill that has been conducted in secrecy under the direction of the U.S. Strategic Command with the involvement of the 5th Bombing Group with B-52Hs and the 91st Missile Group with Minuteman-3s.

The U.S. had openly claimed in 2017 that one of the main purposes of the Global Thunder drill is to get familiar with the operation for striking the nuclear facilities in the DPRK.

Then, we cannot but ask the south Korean military authorities what happened in the Korean peninsula last year.

They signed the historic April 27 Panmunjom Declaration, the September Pyongyang Joint Declaration and the north-south agreement on military field last year. However, they went so shameless as to take part in the U.S. nuclear attack drill aimed at a preemptive attack on the DPRK behind the scene. This is another perfidious act against the compatriots in the north.

Such act is just one of many typical examples of disguised hostile acts persisted in by the south Korean military in collusion with the U.S. against the trend of the north-south reconciliation and peace.

The south Korean military, failing to drop the past evil habit of perpetrating military provocations, has ceaselessly conducted joint military drills in collusion with the U.S. against the DPRK though they had to be ceased.

The U.S.-south Korea joint military drill Alliance 19-1 and joint air drill were conducted in March and April this year. And plans of war drills against the DPRK are being mapped out even at this moment.

Nevertheless, the south Korean military is asserting that the military drills conducted by the army of the DPRK within its territorial land and waters under its regular drill plan are running counter to the idea of the north-south agreement on military field.

This is just the height of shamelessness.

The south Korean military is pursuing military confrontation, far from making efforts to develop the north-south relations and preserve peace and security on the Korean peninsula. This proves that the south Korean military doesn't actually want north-south reconciliation and cooperation and peace.

The above-said disguised act of the south Korean military, to say nothing of the open hostile acts they committed so far, constitutes an unpardonable provocation against the compatriots in the north. It draws bitterer disillusion and anger of all Koreans.

Dark cloud comes before a storm.

The south Korean authorities should cleanse themselves of the black-hearted confrontational idea and take a proper stand to honestly implement the north-south declarations and the agreement on military field.

All Koreans will never pardon the confrontational moves of the south Korean military going against the trend of north-south reconciliation and peace. -0-
