Reeking off smell of powder
On April, 23, the south Korean military carried out a joint landing drill with involvement of the army, the navy, air forces and marine corps in the sea off Pohang of North Gyeongsang Province.
Landing craft, armored vehicles of the marine corps and helicopter were involved in the drill.
Prior to this, the US and south Korean air forces conducted combined aerial drill in south Korea from April 20 to 24.
F-15Ks, KF-16s of south Korean air force and F-16s of the US air force were involved in the drill.
Broad segments of south Korean people reprimand that the military authorities launch dangerous military provocation wrecking peace of the Korean Peninsula regardless of the people’s livelihood.
The preparatory meeting for the national independence conference called a press conference outside the building of the Defense Ministry shouting slogans “eternal suspension of south Korea-US joint military drill”, “condemn introduction of war hardware and arms buildup” and “dissolution of south Korea-US alliance”.
In the press release, they denounced that the warlike forces are keen on confrontation with the same brethren and war maneuvers and making frantic effort to build up the military strength and update the military equipment amid COVID-19 crisis.
The South Side Committee for Implementing the June 15 Joint Declaration issued a statement to condemn the south Korea-US combined aerial drill on April 24.
The combined drill is so risky that it is aiming at preemptive strike at north Korea. Withdraw the combined drill at once, the organization asserted in the statement.
