PYONGYANG, March 1 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) said Tuesday it had prepared for both possibilities of dialogue and war, the official news agency KCNA reported.

A DPRK Foreign Ministry spokesman made the remarks in a statement on the ongoing South Korea-U.S. joint military exercises, which proved again that their anti-DPRK policy has never changed, according to the KCNA.

They tried to block the peaceful development of the DPRK, jugulate DPRK socialistic system and make up triangle military ally of the United States, Japan and South Korea to establish hegemony in this area, said the spokesman.

These exercises also reveal the politic burden of the South Korean authorities to rationalize its anti-policy, the spokesman added.

The army and people of the DPRK was enraged at that South Korea and the United States ignored the DPRK's proposal of broad, unconditional dialogue and its efforts made for it but brazenly held joint exercise, said the spokesman.

He said the counter measure of the Korean People's Army (KPA) aimed at fairly self-defence was becoming more and more "inevitable." The opportunity of dialogue and negotiation is "disappearing." The United States had to take responsibility to all the consequences caused by its provocation, he stressed.

The joint military exercises named "Key Resolve" and "Foal Eagle" by South Korea and the United States would hold from Feb. 28 to March. 10. The Panmunjom mission of the KPA issued a statement on Sunday, declaring to take resolute measures to respond to the exercises.
