Rodong Sinmun Denounces Criminal Nature of U.S. Espionage
Pyongyang, November 17 (KCNA) -- The MQ-9 unmanned reconnaissance plane unit of the U.S. forces, stationed in the "Self-Defense Forces" base in Kanoya, Kagoshima Prefecture of Japan, was redeployed in the U.S. military base in Kadena of Okinawa to start its formal operation.

In recent years, RC-135S, RC-135U and E-8C reconnaissance planes have been deployed.

It is rare that such U.S. reconnaissance planes have been deployed in the U.S. forces' Kadena base one after another, and this is a very ill-boding military movement, says Rodong Sinmun Friday in an article.

The U.S. is trying to cover up the criminal nature of such movement, asserting that its espionage and military drills are aimed to adapt to the changed security environment and to perfect the combined defense posture, but this is sophism, the article says, adding:

The U.S. ceaseless espionage and military exercises are further aggravating the tension in Northeast Asia.

Mankind ardently aspires after peace, but the durable peace has not yet settled in the world.

The U.S. is, indeed, the root cause of war and the enemy of peace as it regards war of aggression as its state policy under the purpose of dominating and plundering other countries and nations and leaves no means untried to realize it.
