Use of Armed Forces Is Not Privilege of U.S. Only: Chief of General Staff of Korean People's Army

Date: 04/12/2019 | Source: KCNA.kp (En) | Read original version at source

Pyongyang, December 4 (KCNA) -- Pak Jong Chon, chief of the General Staff of the Korean People's Army, released the following statement on Wednesday:

I heard that the U.S. president made undesirable remarks about the DPRK on Dec. 3 during the NATO summit in Britain.

The Supreme Commander of our armed forces was also displeased to hear it.

The DPRK and the U.S. are still technically at war and the state of truce can turn into an all-out armed conflict any moment even by any accidental case.

Recently the armed forces of the U.S. have shown unusual military moves targeting the DPRK, and we are analyzing the effects those military actions can have on the security of the DPRK and are getting ourselves ready to cope with them.

I think the only guarantee that deters physical conflict from flaring up in relations between the DPRK and the U.S. despite such a dangerous military stand-off is the close relations between the top leaders of the DPRK and the U.S.

But recently the U.S. president said that he may use armed forces in clear reference to the DPRK, even though he attached preconditions. This greatly disappointed me.

Such elated spirit and bluffing may greatly get on the nerve of the dialogue partner even at the slightest slip.

One thing I would like to make clear is that the use of armed forces is not the privilege of the U.S. only.

Anyone can guess with what action the DPRK will answer if the U.S. undertakes military actions against the DPRK.

I clearly state here that if the U.S. uses any armed forces against the DPRK, we will also take prompt corresponding actions at any level.

The use of armed forces against the DPRK will be a horrible thing for the U.S. -0-
