A spokesman for the Religious Believers Council of Korea (RBCK) released a statement on March 10 to lash out at the US and south Korean warmongers for working hard to inflict a horrible nuclear war upon the Korean nation. As reported, the US and south Korean warmongers on March 1 kicked off their nearly two-month long joint military drills targeting the DPRK despite strong protest at home and abroad, the statement said, and went on:
If a nuclear war breaks out on the Korean peninsula, it will immediately spill over into a thermonuclear war not only in Northeast Asia but also in the rest of the world and thus entail catastrophic consequences.
The RBCK vehemently denounces, on behalf of all religious believers in the northern half of the republic, the US and south Korean war mongers’ joint military drills for aggression, terming them a blatant challenge to peace and reunification on the Korean peninsula and the improvement of the north-south relations and a criminal act of threatening global peace and security and existence of humankind.
It is the doctrine of religious belief and mission of religious believers to desire good will and punish evils and defend justice and peace.
Now is the time for all the Korean religious believers in the north and the south and abroad to decisively turn out in the patriotic and sacred struggle for sending to hell the groups of evils keen to throw the space for the nation's existence into disaster of a nuclear war.
The RBCK appeals to all religious believers in the north and the south and abroad to come out in the sacred struggle for punishing the groups of Satan which are making desperate efforts to inflict a horrible nuclear disaster upon the nation, openly challenging all compatriots aspiring after national reconciliation and unity and peace and reunification.
It also expresses hope that all religious believers and organizations of the world who regard love, justice and peace as their ideal would extend full support to the Korean people in their just struggle against the US and puppet war mongers' nuclear war moves and for peace on the Korean peninsula and in the rest of the world.
