Recently, despite the unanimous condemnation and rebuff from inside and outside the country, the United States and the South Korean army eventually opened a joint military exercise, more accelerating the instability of the situation.
Kim Yo Jong, Deputy Head of the Department of the Central Committee of the WPK, on the relevant instructions issued a statement in connection with the current military exercise.
She noted in the conversation that the current joint military exercise is the most concentrated expression of the hostile US policy towards our country, aimed at strangling our state by force, and is also a suicidal act that threatens the security of our people and aggravates the situation on the Korean Peninsula. It is far from getting welcome and will definitely get its price.
In such an acute time as now, when the international focus is focused on the development of the position of the Korean Peninsula, the United States has persistently forced an aggressive military exercise. This shows that the United States is the main instigator of the destruction of peace and stability in the region, and the "diplomatic involvement" and "dialogue without preconditions", which the US administration rants about, is only hypocrisy to cover up its true aggressive thoughts.
The conversation emphasized that we will further strengthen the state defense force to quickly respond to any military threats from the United States against us, that we will build up forces to be able to deliver a preemptive strike as a measure of deterring the US military threat.
She also expressed great regret for the treacherous decision of the affairs of the South Korean authorities.
You can read the specific content of the conversation on the KCNA website.
The Korean Committee of Solidarity with the Peoples of the World is confident that friends of Korea, who love justice and peace, will pay close attention to the tense situation on the Korean Peninsula, and express their absolute support and solidarity in the struggle of the Korean people to defend the country's sovereignty and peace.
