DPRK newspaper accuses South Korea of deteriorating relations


08:57, December 01, 2011

PYONGYANG, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- A leading newspaper of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Wednesday accused South Korea of wrecking peace and deteriorating north-south relations through its recent military exercises.

The "anti-DPRK war moves" are "very dangerous in their purpose, nature, content and style," said Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of the DPRK.

The continued war exercises and persistent moves for a military showdown with the DPRK are designed to check national unity and reunification and do harm to fellow countrymen by force of arms.

"No one can vouch that such maneuvers will not lead to a war of aggression on the DPRK," the newspaper said in a bylined article.

South Korean authorities who make such bellicose remarks as "strong chastisement" and "retaliation" to the DPRK were prompted by their plan to irritate the DPRK to take military counteraction and to "ignite a nuclear war for invasion of the DPRK," the article said.

The final aim sought by South Korean authorities is to realize "unification under the liberal democratic system," not the independent and peaceful reunification based on national reconciliation and unity, the article added.

The article warned that a nuclear war would take place if South Korean authorities continue their military moves against the DPRK.

South Korea's navy on Tuesday staged a large-scale exercise aimed at deterring potential maritime infiltration attempts by the DPRK. The drill was held in waters near Pyeongtaek Port, southwest of Seoul, mobilizing some 20 vessels, according to South Korea's Yonhap News Agency.
