The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Friday condemned the Proliferation Security Initiative (PSI) exercises held by South Korea, the U.S. and Japan in waters off Pusan on Oct. 13 and 14.

According to the official news agency KCNA, the Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea issued a bulletin saying the PSI exercise was a "declaration of an all-out confrontation against the DPRK" and "an extremely dangerous act of pushing the inter-Korean relations to the brink of war."

The successive exercises held by South Korea and the U.S. against the DPRK clearly indicate that they are "only keen on escalating the confrontation with fellow countrymen and realizing their ambition of invading the DPRK in utter disregard of dialogue, inter-Korean relations and peace," said the bulletin.

The DPRK's bulletin warned that if the aggressors impose a war upon it, it will "wipe them out to the last man and blow up their strongholds."

Forces from South Korea and the U.S. as well as the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force took part in the PSI exercises.
