The chief of the Foreign News Section of the Department of Press and Information of the DPRK Foreign Ministry issued the following press statement on March 6:

Despite our repeated warnings, the U.S. persists in aggravating the situation on the Korean peninsula and the region.

Today, the U.S. nuclear strategic bomber B-52 flew into the Korean peninsula again in three months and staged the fifth round of joint air drill this year. This is a reckless military provocation driving the situation on the Korean peninsula deeper into the bottomless quagmire.

The recent joint air drill, staged just after the “drill for operating extended deterrence means” held in February, clearly shows that the U.S. scheme to use nuclear weapons against the DPRK is being carried out on the same footing as an actual war.

The danger of a nuclear war on the Korean peninsula is turning from an imaginary stage to a realistic one due to the irresponsible deeds of the U.S. and south Korea keen on the bellicose armed demonstrations contrary to the aspiration of the international community for detente and stability.

The unbroken chain of provocative military actions of the U.S. against the DPRK are foretelling the aggressive nature of large-scale U.S.-south Korea joint military exercise, which are to be launched in a few days, and the gravity of the catastrophic tension that will be entailed by them.

We express deep regret over the irresponsible and worrying muscle-flexing of the U.S. and south Korea, which are constantly pushing the situation on the Korean peninsula to an unpredictable state, and strongly demand an immediate stop to the military hostile acts of disturbing peace and stability on the Korean peninsula.

If the dangerous military provocations of the U.S. and south Korea continue to be overlooked, there is no guarantee that there will be no violent physical conflict on the Korean peninsula where huge armed forces of both sides are in acute confrontation.

The international community should join the DPRK in its peace-loving efforts to seek detente on the Korean peninsula and in the region and send a clear signal to the U.S. and south Korea to stop the war drills at once.
