Confrontational stance remains unchanged

Date: 10/10/2019 | Source: Pyongyang Times | Read original version at source

The south Korean authorities frequently hold anti-DPRK confrontation farces, seriously rattling the nerves of the DPRK.

The south Korean military held so-called "commemoration of war victory", "commemoration of 69th anniversary of recovery of Seoul", and "4th memorial service for heroes of Lake Jangjin battle" from Sep 25, inciting the confrontation atmosphere. On Oct 1, they showed F-35A in its flight in a "memorial event" held in the Taegu air force base, making a false show of power.

This treacherous and anti-reunification confrontation act of the imprudent military warmongers of south Korea is an open threat to and a deliberate provocation against the DPRK.

The public at home and abroad are now shocked at the double-dealing acts of the south Korean authorities keen on beating the war drum inside while spouting the deceptive "peace" rhetoric toward the fellow countrymen and the world.

They have called for making efforts to do more work helpful to dialogue and less work harmful to it, making peace trumpeting whenever an opportunity presented itself.

But the south Korean warmongers staged nonstop the DPRK-targeted aggression war drills of all codenames including Alliance 19-1, combined aerial drill, proliferation security initiative and combined command exercises.

The continued shipment of such lethal hardware as F-35A aimed at opening a door of invasion against the north in case of emergency on the Korean peninsula further escalates the military tensions.

Such confrontational wild act is a flagrant violation of the spirit of the north-south agreement in which both sides committed a stop to the hostile acts against the other side, and an intolerable challenge to the unanimous desire of the entire nation for peace and stability.

The south Korean authorities' rhetoric about reconciliation and peace only prove that they are false trumpeting to cover up their dark intention of escalating confrontation with the fellow countrymen.

Hostility is bound to lead to an all-out war.

The south Korean authorities must clearly understand that their reckless farce of escalating confrontation with the DPRK against the trend of the times and the people's mindset will plunge the current stalemate of the north-south ties into an uncontrollable catastrophe.
