Spokesperson for Ministry of People's Armed Forces of DPRK Blames S. Korean Military for Its Reckless Military Provocation

Pyongyang, May 8 (KCNA) -- A spokesperson for the Ministry of the People's Armed Forces of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea made public the following statement on Thursday:

On Wednesday, the south Korean military staged a joint military drill in the hotspot waters in the West Sea of Korea with the involvement of more than twenty fighters of F-15K, KF-16, F-4E and FA-50 belonging to the air combat command of the Air Force and storm boats under the Navy's 2nd Fleet and others.

Such reckless move of the military warmongers of the south side is the height of the military confrontation which would leave tongue-tied even their master, who responded to every military drill staged by us with words like halt and regretful, saying it does not help the efforts to defuse tension on the Korean peninsula.

Everything is now going back to the starting point before the north-south summit meeting in 2018.

The recent joint drill was staged in the air and sea in the biggest hotspot area in the West Sea of Korea in which military conflicts occurred between the north and the south in the past, and it was openly launched, assuming that there were a "strange sign" and "provocation" from us.

What merits more attention is that the south Korean military staged the said military drill while calling us their "enemy."

This is a grave provocation which can never be overlooked and this situation demands a necessary reaction from us.

It is no more than the deliberate pursuit of confrontation the excuse for which can never be made.

The south Korean military did not hide the fact that the joint military drill aimed at improving its capability to cope with the north's firepower and surprise "provocation" and at striking the base of the "enemy's provocation" and repelling the forces supporting it.

The reckless military provocation by the south Korean military is a total denial and an open perfidy to the north-south agreement in the military field in which both sides promised the whole Korean nation to stop all the hostile acts against the other party on the ground and in the sea and air, to turn the West Sea zone into the peaceful waters, in particular.

The recent drill served as an opportunity which awakened us once again to the obvious fact that the enemies remain enemies all the time.

Should we remain a passive onlooker when the enemy gets zealous while openly calling for an attack on us? -0-
