Cancellation of S. Korea-U.S. Joint Military Drills Urged by S. Korean Organization
Pyongyang, February 20 (KCNA) -- The South Side Committee for Implementing the June 15 Joint Declaration on Feb. 7 issued a statement in demand of the cancellation of the south Korea-U.S. joint military drills, according to Minjok Thongsin, an Internet paper of Koreans in the U.S.

The statement recalled that when the north and the south were reaching an agreement on the reunion of the separated families and their relatives, the U.S. nuclear-capable B-52s conducted bombing drills in the sky above Jik islet in the West Sea of Korea. It urged the "government" to clarify its intention.

This is a self-revelation of the true colors of the "government" and the U.S. which used to urge the north to show "sincerity", it said, adding such behavior of the "government" will only escalate conflict and tension.

The statement urged the present regime to make a resolute determination to cancel the projected joint military drills that screw up military tension in order to ensure peace on the Korean peninsula.
