Pyongyang, December 5 (KCNA) -- Choe Son Hui, first vice-minister of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK released the following statement Thursday:

The phrase "use of military force" against the DPRK which emerged during the NATO summit a few days ago has created a great splash worldwide, arousing concerns.

What makes us feel further worse is that the figurative style was dare used at random with no courtesy when referring to the supreme leadership of dignity of the DPRK.

This has prompted the waves of hatred of our people against the U.S. and the Americans and they are getting higher and higher.

As reported, the Korean People's Army immediately clarified its strong stand on it.

We, Foreign Ministry, too, can not repress displeasure over the utterances made by President Trump inappropriately at the most sensitive time.

It would be fortunate if the utterances of the use of military force and the title of figurative style made by President Trump were a careless verbal lapse, but matter becomes different if they were a planned provocation that deliberately targeted us.

If this is meant to make expressions, reminiscent of those days just two years ago when a war of words was fought across the ocean, surface again on purpose, it will be a very dangerous challenge.

We will watch whether the phrase i.e. use of military force and title of figurative style emerge again.

If, if such phrases emerge once again and they are once again confirmed to be a calculated provocation of the U.S. against us, we will also start harsh language against the U.S. to counter it.

If any language and expressions stoking the atmosphere of confrontation are used once again on purpose at a crucial moment as now, that must really be diagnosed as the relapse of the dotage of a dotard.

The Chairman of our State Affairs Commission has not yet made any statement toward President Trump. -0-
