The following is the full text of “The ‘Republic of Korea’ can never evade the blame for having scrapped the North-South Military Agreement,” an article issued by a military commentator of the DPRK on December 2 :

The Korean peninsula is now under uncontrollable and alarming situation.

On November 22, the political and military gangsters of the “Republic of Korea” abruptly announced suspension of some provisions of the September 19 North-South Military Agreement, groundlessly pulling up the DPRK over its launch of a reconnaissance satellite, the legitimate and just right of a sovereign state. And from the afternoon of the day, they all went into the military confrontation racket, reminiscent of the eve of a war, in the area along the Military Demarcation Line.

The introduction of manned and unmanned aerial reconnaissance assets, the elevation of firepower alert posture in the frontline area of the puppet army and the “general drill for defending the northwestern islands” on Paekryong Island, the hot spot waters in the West Sea, etc. were conducted in a frantic manner.

Military units equipped with PAC-2 and PAC-3, interceptor missiles deployed on land, and Chongung-2, ground-to-air guided missiles, were also put on combat standby.

All units of the three wings of puppet armed forces have been ordered to wear combat uniform and the defense minister, the army chief of staff and other bosses of the puppet military are busy inspecting the missile strategic command and the Pusan naval operation base to review the combat posture.

The puppet marine corps in Phohang of North Kyongsang Province staged a large-scale actual war drills for landing on the targeted coast under the covering of bombardment of naval vessels, air force fighters and army attack helicopters.

Foreign media focus on the south Korea-US combined naval drill with the US nuclear carrier Carl Vinson and nuclear-powered submarine Santa Fe as the main force, which intruded into the naval bases in Pusan and Jeju Island, timed to coincide with the unusual military moves in the area along the Military Demarcation Line and all other areas of puppet south Korea.

All these are being enforced in parallel with the unilateral declaration of the puppet group on the suspension of some provisions of the September 19 North-South Military Agreement.

The buffer zone along the Military Demarcation Line, which had been maintained for the past five years, is completely destroyed and the unpredictable danger of war is escalating.

Upon the serious situation, traitor Yoon Suk Yeol and his group are misleading the public opinion, claiming that the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is responsible for it.

As the puppet group of traitors is going so impudent to shift the responsibility for the scraping of the North-South Military Agreement and the deterioration of the situation with illogical far-fetched assertions and sophism, I clearly reveal the truth behind the fact.

Who is chiefly responsible for “constant breach?”

Traitor Yoon Suk Yeol and his group are claiming that the suspension of some provisions of the September 19 North-South Military Agreement was an inevitable measure taken by them as the DPRK had no “will to abide by the agreement” and constantly repeated the “breach” of the agreement.

Who is the one that totally denied the agreement and consistently violated it, far from having the will to abide by it?

First, let us look back on the “will to abide by the agreement.”

It is well known to the world that traitor Yoon Suk Yeol denied the existence of the agreement before he took power, terming it a “written abandonment of security” and a “political drama.”

Later, he unhesitatingly revealed that he has no will to implement the North-South Military Agreement by declaring the DPRK and its army as the “principal enemy” and adopting the military confrontation as a “state policy,” which were proved by the farce of preparations for the scrapping of the agreement.

It is necessary to recall that in January this year traitor Yoon instructed the puppet State Security Office, “Ministry of Defense” and the Joint Chiefs of Staff to step up the suspension of the September 19 North-South Military Agreement and, accordingly, the puppet military even staged a drill for mastering the procedures for suspending the agreement from March.

Sin Won Sik, puppet minister of Defense who took office in October, repeatedly said on public occasions that the North-South Military Agreement was a wrong agreement and it should be scrapped without fail and that he would do his best to suspend the effect of the agreement at the earliest possible date.

It is by no means fortuitous that media in the region of the south Korean puppets commented that Yoon Suk Yeol and the authorities have denied the existence of the agreement, far from implementing it.

Such facts clearly prove that the puppet group’s scrapping of the agreement has been planned as part of its policy of confrontation with the DPRK and has been carried out in perfect order.

However, the puppet group is resorting to shameless farce as if the scrapping of the agreement is attributable to the DPRK, concealing everything it had committed.

The puppet group of traitors is the arch criminal who has constantly breached the agreement.

The agreement stipulates for the total stop of all hostile acts against the other side, the root cause of military tension and conflict in all spaces including the ground, sea and air.

Then, have the puppet military gangsters abided by it? Never.

Since traitor Yoon took office, military drills have been staged at all levels for mastering the mode of surprise attack on the DPRK every day on the ground, at sea and in the air of the whole region of the puppet south Korea.

The large-scale joint war drills targeting the DPRK, including Ulji Freedom Shield joint military exercises, Vigilant Storm combined air drills, Ssangyong joint landing drills and operation training of anti-special warfare unit, amount to more than 80 times which have been opened to the public.

Countless is the number of the DPRK-targeted war drills staged by the puppet army alone.

The puppet group organized and operated with its American master the “Nuclear Consultative Group,” aimed at making a nuclear attack on the DPRK, in April this year, introduced the US super-large strategic nuclear submarine carrying 80 nuclear warheads into the Pusan operation base in July for the first time in 42 years and landed B-52H, a US strategic bomber with nuclear missiles, at the Chongju Air Force base for the first time, etc. It will take more time to mention the constant deployment of various other nuclear attack strategic assets of the US.

Extreme military hostile acts in the area along the Military Demarcation Line goes further beyond imagination.

In the period from January to October this year alone, the puppet group of traitors committed more than 3 200 loudspeaker broadcasting provocations on the front line, more than 1 100 warships of the puppet army invaded the territorial waters of the DPRK for 1 270-odd times and reconnaissance planes intruded into the territorial airspace of the DPRK over 150 times.

In particular, the over 10-hour-long shelling provocation in the frontline area of the 5th Corps of our Army in the eastern front in October last year and the shelling at the Chori Firing Range in Jindong-myon, Phaju City of Kyonggi Province in the western frontline area in March this year were typical violations of Clause 2 of Article 1 of the North-South Military Agreement on the stop of shelling drill in the area along the Military Demarcation Line.

Needless to say, the puppet group will persistently deny or justify these stark facts.

Explicitly speaking, the DPRK has ample evidence proving the facts that the enemies wantonly violated the agreement.

The Yoon Suk Yeol group of traitors has persistently violated the North-South Military Agreement in an all-round and comprehensive way on a step-by-step basis, obsessed with the hostile consciousness towards the DPRK and the hysteria for military confrontation. It is the height of profound confusing of right and wrong that they talk about “constant violation” by someone.

For whom was it needed to scrap military agreement?

The Yoon Suk Yeol group of traitors cited the DPRK’s legitimate and just launch of a reconnaissance satellite as a direct excuse for the suspension of some provisions in the North-South Military Agreement.

It is quite natural that people are doubtful about this.

This is because no article and phrase in the agreement stipulates any content that reconnaissance satellite should not be launched.

This is the reason why the DPRK brands the enemy’s act of pulling up the DPRK over its reconnaissance satellite launch as a deliberate provocation to scrap the agreement and a far-fetched assertion that cannot justify itself even a bit.

If the DPRK’s satellite launch is a “violation” of the north-south military agreement, how could the satellites launched by the enemies so far be explained?

What about the launch of a reconnaissance satellite, which was finally carried out with the backing of the American master on December 2 after delaying it from November 30?

Even shameless ones can never call it “observance of agreement.”

The puppet group’s assertion which is no more than a self-contradiction is nothing but a revelation of its sinister intention to scrap the agreement at any cost.

The remarks made by an official of the puppet military on November 14 offered counter-evidence. He unhesitatingly blustered that if the north launches a reconnaissance satellite, it is their goal to extend the range of suspension by taking the north’s “additional provocation” as an excuse with the start of the suspension of some provisions of the north-south military agreement and finally nullify the agreement.

Then, why is the Yoon Suk Yeol group of traitors going so frantic to scrap the September 19 North-South Military Agreement?

The group’s intention is, above all, to remove obstacles to inciting the hostile feelings towards the DPRK and making military provocations against it in the area along the Military Demarcation Line.

It is needed to probe into the fact that the puppet military gangsters suspended the effect of the Clause 3 of Article 1 of the agreement, which bans the flight of drones and balloons together with fixed- and rotary-wing planes in the sky above the Military Demarcation Line.

The puppet group, which set up the “command for drone operation” to carry out the anti-north psychological warfare together with the tasks for monitoring, reconnaissance, attack and electronic warfare against major strategic targets of the DPRK on September 1, has since cried out for nullifying the north-south military agreement, in order to resume the drone operation in the area along the Military Demarcation Line as early as possible.

Clear-cut is the intention of the puppet group of traitors to persistently fly balloons in the sky above the Military Demarcation Line.

It is quite obvious that the puppet military is going to conduct the anti-north psychological warfare in full swing through the direct operation of leaflet scattering machines, instead of having manoeuvred “civilian organizations” into anti-DPRK leaflet scattering campaign so far.

The intrusion of drones and leaflet scattering towards the area of the DPRK side attempted by the enemies are a grave military hostility equivalent to the provocation of a war.

Herein lies the gravity of the puppet group’s recent hurried suspension of the military agreement.

It is another sinister intention of the Yoon Suk Yeol group of traitors to trigger off the DPRK’s military counteraction by causing a shocking incident in the area along the Military Demarcation Line and seek a way out of the serious ruling crisis.

It is the inveterate bad habit of the successive conservative forces in the region of south Korean puppets to rally the conservative group through the fabrication of the “north wind” and brand the anti-government forces as the “anti-security forces” and thus maintain the ruling system whenever they are in the grip of political dilemma and ruling crisis.

Traitor Yoon Suk Yeol and his group are now faced with daily-growing massive protest and actions for the “resignation of regime,” due to their extreme ignorance, irregularities and corruption and unpopular misrule.

The “impeachment of president” is hotly debated at the puppet parliament as Yoon’s mother-in-law was put in prison for having illegally acquired wealth and a special inspection system for probing into the past crimes of his wife is about to operate.

Yoon is now like a fish out of water as even Kyongsang Province, the “citadel of conservatism,” and conservative media are turning their backs against his regime’s arrogant and self-righteous behaviour.

It is the unanimous public opinion inside the puppet regime that the ruling party will suffer a heavy defeat in the puppet National Assembly election to be held in April next year and traitor Yoon be ousted from the post of “president” under the present situation.

Therefore, the traitor and his group are resorting to a foolish military gambling in a bid to divert the public sentiment against the government.

This is proved by the rumours that traitor Yoon can provoke military provocations at the “ceasefire line” to maintain his “power” and laments that he scrapped the north-south military agreement just like Lee Myung Bak and Park Geun Hye who spoiled the projects for tourism of Mt Kumgang and the Kaesong Industrial Park in a bid to tide over the ruling crisis in the past.

Provokers should surely pay high price

Owing to the reckless and imprudent moves of the puppet group of traitors to nullify the north-south military agreement, the military confrontation as extreme as that before the adoption of the agreement has been created again on the Korean peninsula.

It is needless to say what consequences will be entailed by the complete disappearance of the minimum mechanism and the final line for preventing accidental military conflict in the area along the Military Demarcation Line where huge armed forces stand in highest density and sharp confrontation with each other in the world.

The physical clash and war on the Korean peninsula have become a matter of time, not that of possibility.

The puppet group of traitors is ridiculously claiming that the suspension of the effect of the north-south military agreement would be a “bitter counteraction” to the DPRK and that they have nothing to lose.

This is nothing but a foolish deception to justify the crime of nullifying the agreement and cover up the catastrophic disaster to come.

If one has an elementary military common knowledge and insight, it is easy to judge which side will pay irretrievable fatal price due to the nullification of the north-south military agreement.

In fact, the agreement weighs against the military operations of the DPRK army.

However, the DPRK adopted the agreement out of a single mind to minimize the danger of armed conflict in the area along the Military Demarcation Line and promote peace and stability on the Korean peninsula, and has displayed its utmost patience and self-restraint.

Since the puppet group of traitors challenged the DPRK’s good faith and magnanimity with hideous provocation, the army of the DPRK has been able to conduct regular military activities at will, not hampered or bound by any agreement from now on.

The army of the DPRK makes it clear once again that it has not regarded the puppet army as its match from the very beginning.

If the political and military gangsters of the “Republic of Korea” dare to commit an outrageous military provocation in the eyes of the DPRK’s army, it will show them no tolerance and contain and punish them with the immediate and powerful strength.

The future developments will go quite contrary to the enemy’s expectations.

Inhabitants of the border area and five islands in the West Sea, including Paekryong and Yonphyong islands have cried that “the authorities are now bringing a second Yonphyong Island crisis” and that they “can’t live because of uneasiness.” And various circles are strongly condemning the suspension of the north-south military agreement by the group of traitor Yoon Suk Yeol as self-wrong of pulling out the last security mechanism for peace and the “worst choice” increasing the war danger on the Korean peninsula. This is undeniable reality.

We say clearly to the puppet group of traitors, engrossed in bravado and blind bravery while talking about additional counteraction and strong punishment obsessed with extreme anti-DPRK confrontation hysteria and intemperate blind belief in and submission to “south Korea-US alliance”: Any hostile act of the puppet group against the DPRK will lead to the miserable destruction of the puppet army and the total collapse of the “ROK.”

The prevailing situation proves once again the validity of the choice of the DPRK which has pushed forward with the bolstering of nuclear war deterrence and modernization of armed forces under the leadership of the great Party, despite all sorts of trials and hardships, and underlines the need for the DPRK to invariably advance along this road in the future, too.

The provokers who completely nullified the north-south military agreement will have to surely pay a high price.
