Democratic Korea warns commander of U.S. troops in south Korea
According to a Feb. 23 report published by Korean Central News Agency, an important leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) military told the commander of U.S. troops occupying south Korea to stop plans for the provocative military exercises that are scheduled for March 1.
The report states that Pak Rim Su, chief of the Panmunjom Mission of the Korean People's Army, sent the following message to James D. Sherman, commander of the U.S. forces in south Korea, on Feb. 23:
“As you know, a grave situation where a war may break out any moment prevails in Korea due to the brigandish moves of the U.S. and its allied forces to isolate and stifle the DPRK, taking issue with its just satellite launch and underground nuclear test for protecting its sovereignty.
“If your side ignites a war of aggression by staging the reckless joint military exercises Key Resolve and Foal Eagle again under the cover of ‘defensive and annual ones’ at this dangerous time, from that moment your fate will be hung by a thread with every hour.
“You had better bear in mind that those igniting a war are destined to meet a miserable destruction while a great victory is in store for the guardians of justice.”
