The Disarmament and Peace Institute of the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK Friday released a study report disclosing the danger of the heinous moves the U.S. has persisted while resorting to military adventure to push the situation on the Korean peninsula to the point of explosion of a thermonuclear war, and clarifying the validity of the principled stand of the DPRK to firmly defend the peace and stability on the peninsula and in the region.
The U.S. military provocation moves have reached the height with Key Resolve and Foal Eagle 17 joint military drills as occasions, the report said, and went on: The U.S. hurled 300 000-strong troops into the aggression war drills including troops from the U.S. military bases in areas around the Korean peninsula and even its mainland, to say nothing of those troops present in south Korea and the south Korean puppet forces.
Through the joint military drill the U.S. posed an open military threat to the DPRK and, in actuality, planned to put preemptive attack and aggression war into practice.

A spokesman for the Institute for American Studies of the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK released the following statement Friday: The U.S. carried out inter-continental ballistic missile test-fire on May 3 in the wake of the one on April 26 at a time when the situation on the Korean peninsula has reached the extremely dangerous phase due to the largest-ever joint military drills waged by the U.S. after introducing huge nuclear strategic assets, and the military provocation moves conducted by it.
The U.S. claims the two ICBM test-fires conducted just in a little over one week were planned one year ago and they have nothing to do with the DPRK’s nuclear and long-range ballistic missile launch but many world media are concerned that the consecutive ICBM tests by the U.S. can push the acute situation on the Korean peninsula to graver phase.
The U.S. maintains it may carry out missile launches but the DPRK can not and that its launches are “contribution” to peace and security while the DPRK’s are “provocation” straining tension.

A spokesman of the Institute for Disarmament and Peace(IDP) of the DPRK Foreign Ministry issued a statement on April 13 to condemn the U.S. for making military attacks at a sovereign state while crying out for “peace by strength.”
As already reported, the U.S. massive missile attack on Syria constitutes a blatant violation of international law and an insolent and barbarous act of aggression.
The statement said that the U.S. is disturbing the global peace and stability and insisting on the gangster-like logic that its invasion of a sovereign state is “decisive, just and proportionate” and contributes to “defending” the international order in its bid to apply it to the Korean peninsula.
