A spokesman for the National Peace Committee of Korea on March 24 issued a statement as regards the fact that the new US administration is spreading a rumour that it has excluded the plan for a preemptive strike on the DPRK as it examines all-inclusive policies toward the DPRK.
This is a deception to calm down criticism of the public at home and abroad directed toward the US policy extremely hostile toward the DPRK and its toughest countermeasure, and a revelation of a criminal design to put the preemptive attack plan into practice, it noted.
It urged the new US administration to listen to the voice of concern made inside its own country about the serious consequences to be entailed by the preemptive strike and to make a wise option to evade a miserable fate.
It also urged the US to immediately stop the racket for war exercises aimed at preemptive strike against the DPRK and take all means for a preemptive attack out of the Korean peninsula and its vicinity.
If the US shows even the slightest sign of a preemptive attack on the DPRK, bereft of reason, its powerful nuclear strike means will blow up the bases of aggression and provocation with the offensive of its own style and preemptive nuclear strike, the statement said.
It warned that the US should not run wild, pondering over the catastrophic consequences to be entailed by its attempt at a preemptive attack.
