'저는 그들의 땅을 지키기 위하여 싸웠던 인디안들의 이야기를 기억합니다. 백인들이 그들의 신성한 숲에 도로를 만들기 위하여 나무들을 잘랐습니다. 매일밤 인디안들이 나가서 백인들이 만든 그 길을 해체하면 그 다음 날 백인들이 와서 도로를 다시 짓곤 했습니다. 한동안 그 것이 반복되었습니다. 그러던 어느날, 숲에서 가장 큰 나무가 백인들이 일할 동안 그들 머리 위로 떨어져 말과 마차들을 파괴하고 그들 중 몇몇을 죽였습니다. 그러자 백인들은 떠났고 결코 다시 오지 않았습니다….' (브루스 개그논)

The joint military drill by the U.S. and South Korean army "is against the sovereignty of the DPRK ( Democratic People's Republic of Korea)", a DPRK spokesman told reporters Friday at a regional security forum in Hanoi.

"It is a threat to the Korean peninsula and the region of Asia as a whole, and the DPRK's position is there will be physical response to the threat imposed by the United States militarily," Ri Tong Il, spokesman for the DPRK delegation at the ASEAN Regional Forum, added.

Following the so-called "two plus two" security talks, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a joint press conference Wednesday that the U.S. will introduce new "country- specific" sanctions against the DPRK's procurement of nuclear materials.

The U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who arrived on Monday for advance talks, finalized details of joint military drills with the defense minister Kim Tae-young.

The first joint exercise involving the U.S. aircraft carrier USS George Washington will come on July 25 in waters off the east coast of the Korean peninsula, and is meant to deliver a "clear message" to the DPRK that provocations must be stopped, the ministers have said.

The UN Security Council on July 9 issued a statement over " Cheonan" warship case, unanimously deploring the attack on the South Korean warship that killed 46 sailors in March. The Council, however, stopped short of blaming the DPRK. Pyongyang has denied any involvement in the incident.

Meanwhile, China on Wednesday expressed concern over military exercises to be held by the Republic of Korea (ROK) and the United States in the Japan Sea.
