Pyongyang, November 1 (KCNA) -- Pak Jong Chon, secretary of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, made public the following press statement on Tuesday:

The hostile forces' inordinate moves for military confrontation have created a grave situation on the Korean peninsula.

Given the number of fighters involved in the combined air drill Vigilant Storm staged by the U.S. and south Korea and the size of the drill, I consider it an aggressive and provocative military drill targeting the DPRK to the letter, in view of the fact that it imitated the name of the operation code Desert Storm used in invading Iraq in the early 1990s.

It is a very unfavorable sign.

The U.S. Department of Defense adopted the "end" of the DPRK's regime as a major target of its nuclear strategy, and the south Korean military warmongers including the puppet defense minister and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff spouted such rubbish that if the DPRK uses nuke, its regime should be totally destroyed.

What is clear is that the current U.S.-south Korea combined air drill revived in five years is an extension of such provocation.

The U.S. is mistaken.

If the U.S. thinks of playing on the Korean peninsula the way it had bombed weak countries at any time and made a mockery of the destiny of sovereign states at the end of the last century, it will be a daydream and a fatal strategic mistake.

The Korean peninsula is not such a place where the U.S. military bluff can work as it does in other regions.

The DPRK closely follows the present instability on the Korean peninsula created by the reckless military moves of the U.S. and south Korea.

If the U.S. and south Korea attempt to use armed forces against the DPRK without any fear, the special means of the DPRK's armed forces will carry out their strategic mission without delay and the U.S. and south Korea will have to face a terrible case and pay the most horrible price in history.

It should be noted that in the present situation, it is a big mistake to accept this as a threat warning only.

Such military rashness and provocation can be no longer tolerated.

The U.S. and south Korea should stop their frantic "military games" and provocative remarks.

Those responsible of the U.S. and south Korea who are so fond of bluffing should make a proper choice as to whether their face management is important or their security is more important. -0-
