Statement in response to U.S. simulated nuclear attacks on North Korea and cyber attacks in North and South Korea

Another round of military actions and escalations by all parties on the Korean peninsula are now underway, including repeated simulated U.S. nuclear attacks against North Korea by B-2 and B-52 bombers in the midst of ongoing U.S.-South Korean war games. We call for an end to such provocative actions and a concerted effort to de-escalate and resolve the longstanding regional conflict that has taken a deep, generations-long toll on the region.
