PYONGYANG, May 12 (Itar-Tass) - Involvement of the U.S. nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Nimitz in three-day U.S.-South Korean war games in the Sea of Japan is a blunt provocation, the North Korean Committee for the Peaceful Unification of the Fatherland said in a statement Sunday.
Such actions add more fuel to the tensions on the Korean Peninsula and “pose a serious risk for security of the People’s Republic.”
“Washington’s objective is to use these large-scale maneuvers for stifling the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and to attain dominance in Asia,” the statement said.
“Yet the U.S. is making a huge mistake if it thinks that the DPRK can be horrified with nuclear-powered aircraft carriers,” the statement said.
“The Armed Forces of the republic will not let the provocateurs get away easily and will send The Nimitz to the sea floor if the aggressors venture to attack the country,” the committee warned.
USS Nimitz arrived in the South Korean port of Busan Saturday. The ship that has water displacement of 97,000 tons was commissioned in 1975.
The Nimitz carries aboard sixty-four F/A 18 Hornet fighter bombers. The naval strike group it leads also includes three destroyers of the Navy.
