The U.S. together with the south Korean authorities started the joint military drill against the DPRK despite its repeated warnings.
Concurrently with the drill, F-35A stealth fighters and the U.S. nuclear strategic submarine Oklahoma City were brought into south Korea and the introduction of high-altitude reconnaissance drone Global Hawk into south Korea is now under discussion.
Minju Joson on Saturday says in a commentary that the reckless military moves of the U.S. and the south Korean authorities are the undisguised betrayal and flagrant violation of the June 12 DPRK-U.S. joint statement, Panmunjom Declaration and September Pyongyang Joint Declaration.
The U.S. and the south Korean authorities are leaving no means untried to justify the military drill, but can never cover up its aggressive nature, the commentary says, and goes on:
Such shameless behavior of the U.S. and the south Korean authorities is excessively inciting the DPRK to take hard-line measures for safeguarding its sovereignty and dignity.
It is the principled stand and way of struggle maintained by our Party and government in the whole historical course of the Korean revolution not to allow any slightest concession or compromise for the sake of the sovereignty and dignity of the country.
The DPRK remains invariable in its stand to value peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula and solve issues through dialogue, but the continuous hostile military acts of the U.S. and the south Korean authorities will only fade away the dynamics of dialogue.
The U.S. and the south Korean authorities should not run amuck, well aware of who their rival is.
