The US and south Korea have staged joint military exercise “Alliance 19-2” against the DPRK in August.
The US is claiming the exercise is a simulation to verify the capacity of the south Korean army for taking over wartime operations.
However, it is an actual maneuvers and a rehearsal for war aimed at militarily occupying the DPRK by surprise attack and rapid dispatch of large-scale reinforcements on the plea of “containment” and “counteroffensive” in case of emergency.
The suspension of joint military exercises is what President Trump, commander-in-chief of the US forces, personally committed to at the DPRK-US summit talks in Singapore under the eyes of the world and reaffirmed at the DPRK-US summit meeting at Panmunjeom.
Less than a month after the DPRK-US summit meeting at Panmunjeom the US plans to resume the joint military exercise it directly promised to suspend at the highest level.
It is an apparent violation of the main spirit of June 12 DPRK-US Joint Statement and a naked pressure upon the DPRK.
