Roving Ambassador of Foreign Ministry of DPRK Blasts U.S. Plan to Resume Combined Aerial Exercise with South Korea

Kwon Jong Gun, Roving Ambassador of the Foreign Ministry of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, issued the following statement on Wednesday:

Recently, the U.S. Defense Department officially announced that it is pushing ahead with the procedure for resuming the combined aerial exercise with the south Korean army in December. The U.S. committed itself to stopping military exercises against the DPRK after Singapore DPRK-U.S. summit.

The U.S. announcement of the combined aerial exercise plan after a month since the breakdown of the Stockholm DPRK-U.S.working-level negotiation amounts to a declaration of confrontation with the DPRK.

The U.S. intention to openly hold war exercise against the DPRK at a sensitive time when the whole world is concerned about the prospect of the DPRK-U.S. relations clearly proves again its nature as the chieftain disturbing the world peace and security and as the hegemonic state regarding the recourse to military strength as a cure-all in settling issues.

The U.S. reckless military frenzy is an extremely provocative and dangerous act of throwing a wet blanket over the spark of the DPRK-U.S. dialogue on the verge of extinction and stoking the atmosphere of confrontation on the Korean peninsula and in the region.

No one will believe that the mere change of the name of  war exercises could alter their aggression nature.

We have already emphasized more than once that the planned joint military exercise can block the DPRK-U.S. relations from advancing and compel us to reconsider the crucial measures we have already taken.

Our patience is nearing the limitation and we will never remain an onlooker to the reckless military moves of the U.S.
