In this regard, the Panmunjom mission of the Korean People's Army released the following statement on February 27, Juche 100(2011):
As already planned, the huge armed forces of the U.S. imperialist aggressor army and the south Korean puppet army went into combat readiness against the DPRK. Nuclear aircraft carrier and other groups for naval operations were deployed in the waters around south Korea. Flying corps for attack including strategic bombers are on a standby to go into action according to their aggression war method mainly based on air warfare.
Such dangerous military maneuvers pose a serious challenge to the demand and desire of all Koreans to defuse the tension on the Korean Peninsula and bring about a new turn for independent reunification, peace and prosperity.
The present situation clearly shows why the south Korean group of traitors intentionally brought to rupture the preliminary talks for north-south high-level military talks, provided with much efforts to ease the military tension on the Korean Peninsula.
Under this situation, the Panmunjom mission of the KPA, upon authorization, clarifies the principled stand of the army and people of the DPRK:
1. Since they announced that Key Resolve and Foal Eagle are aimed to "destroy" the system of the DPRK in "contingency" its army and people will go into an all-out offensive to put an end to the U.S. imperialists' military occupation of south Korea and the anti-popular ruling system of the group of traitors.
It is a daydream of a fool to hope for "contingency" and "collapse" of the Korean-style socialist system, chosen and built by our people themselves.
Such tragicomic fancy can be harbored only by the ignorant knowing nothing about our army and people.
There will be only world-startling great changes and miracles in the DPRK which is dashing toward the eminence of a thriving nation by dint of single-minded unity.
It is quite natural for the army and people of the DPRK to go into an all-out offensive to finally destroy those daringly challenging its dignified socialist system.
2. Now that it has been revealed that the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military maneuvers are to examine the practicability of the adventurous "plan on local war" against the DPRK, the army and people of the DPRK will respond to reckless provocation by the aggressors with an all-out war at any time.
The "plan on local war" of the U.S. imperialists and the group of traitors is an anti-DPRK scenario worked out allegedly to cope with "provocation of different types" from someone.
This plan is a product of the U.S. imperialists' cunning strategy to weaken and bring down their rival through continued military provocation and pressure.
The DPRK has the unbreakable unity of the army and people around the headquarters of the revolution. All its people, with the matchless revolutionary strong army of Mt. Paektu, are in full readiness to penetrate and destroy any provocation and aggression tactics at a stroke.
If the aggressors launch provocation for a "local war" the world will witness unprecedented all-out counteraction on the part of the army and people of the DPRK. It will also see such merciless counteraction as engulfing Seoul in sea of flames, whereby to smash every move for confrontation with unimaginable strategy and tactics.
3. Since Key Resolve and Foal Eagle are aimed at removal of the DPRK's nuclear weapons and missile, its army and people will counter the nuclear blackmail by the aggressors with our own nuclear deterrent and their missile threat with our own missile striking method.
The reality proves that the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean group of traitors are the very one spoiling the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula as they hurl all sorts of nuclear attack means, including group of warships loaded with nukes and corps of strategic bombers, in south Korea and its vicinity under the pretext of the said joint military maneuvers to pose a nuclear threat to the DPRK.
It also fully reveals that the present U.S. administration's call for nuclear-free world is nothing but a showy signboard.
As been already declared, the army and people of the DPRK will return bolstered nuclear deterrent of our own style for the continued nuclear threat by the aggressors and our own missile striking action for their vicious attempt to eliminate our missiles.
Peace is of value to the DPRK. Detente is also what it steadily desires and needs.
However, its army and people will take resolute military counteractions now that the U.S. imperialists and the group of traitors responded to the DPRK-proposed wide-ranging dialogue and negotiations for peace and detente with military actions for aggression.
