      KPA Panmunjom Mission Vows to Buildup Nuclear Deterrent















      Pyongyang, March 7 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Panmunjom Mission of
      the Korean People's Army issued a statement Sunday in connection with
      the fact that the U.S. and the south Korean authorities finally set
      about the DPRK-targeted Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military
      maneuvers.

      The maneuvers clearly indicate once again that
      the U.S. and the south Korean authorities are the harassers of peace
      and warmongers keen to bring a war to this land.


      Under the prevailing situation the Panmunjom Mission of the KPA is authorized to state as follows:



      The revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK will no longer be bound to
      the Armistice Agreement and the north-south agreement on non-aggression.



      There is no reason whatsoever for the DPRK to remain bounded to the AA
      and the non-aggression agreement now that the other belligerent party
      scrapped the AA and the other dialogue partner reneged on the
      non-aggression agreement.


      The revolutionary
      armed forces of the DPRK will, therefore, legitimately exercise their
      force for self-defence, unhindered, just as they had determined to do.



      The process for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula will
      naturally come to a standstill and the DPRK bolster its nuclear
      deterrent for self-defence given that the saber-rattling is proven to
      be nuclear war exercises and maneuvers for a war of aggression against
      the DPRK in its nature.


      It is an inviolable
      right of the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK for self-defence to
      counter with powerful nuclear deterrent the U.S. nuclear offensive
      means threatening the territorial waters and air and land of the DPRK
      on account of exercises.


      The revolutionary
      armed forces of the DPRK will be left with no option but to exercise
      merciless physical force as the rival is set to do harm to the DPRK no
      matter how dear peace, national reconciliation and cooperation are to
      it.


      It is their stand to settle accounts with
      the rival by actual use of military force if it does not wish neither
      to conclude a peace treaty nor have reconciliation and cooperation.


      All DPRK-U.S. and the inter-Korean military dialogues will be suspended as long as the DPRK-targeted war exercises go on.



      It is illogical to sit face to face with the dialogue partner, who
      brings dark clouds of a nuclear war while leveling its gun at the other
      party, and discuss "peace" and "cooperation" with him.



      The U.S. and the south Korean authorities should bear in mind that
      their reckless military acts will bring them nothing but bitter
      disgrace and destruction.
