PYONGYANG, February 7 (Itar-Tass) — The US-South Korean military exercises Key Resolve and Foal Eagle scheduled for February and March will “increase tensions on the Korean peninsula and in Northeast Asia,” North Korea’s Rodong Sinmun newspaper writes on Tuesday.
The ruling party's newspaper stresses that the United States demanded North Korea “to refrain from provocative actions”. At the same time, the scheduled large-scale exercises on the peninsula “clearly testify to an aggressive nature (of the maneuvers), the aim of which is to make a preventive strike”. Rodong Sinmun warns that North Korea “is not going to passively watch the activities of warmongers”.
The official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), for its part, maintains that Key Resolve and Foal Eagle with participation of hundreds of thousands of soldiers and officers from the US and South Korea “are held to achieve military superiority on the Korean peninsula and in the whole Northeast Asia”.
The news agency marks that the people and the army of DPRK “vigilantly watch the agressors' schemes and will not miss the opportunity to punish those who are responsible for undermining regional stability”.
