Press Statement of Vice Department Director of C.C., WPK Kim Yo Jong

Pyongyang, May 29 (KCNA) -- Kim Yo Jong, vice department director of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, issued the following press statement under the title "The ROK is not entitled to criticize the freedom of expression of the people of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea" on Wednesday:

As already warned by the DPRK vice minister of National Defence, a large amount of waste paper and rubbish are being scattered in the border and deep areas of the ROK from the night of May 28.

According to the ROK media, waste paper and rubbish were found not only in the border area with the DPRK but also in Seoul and other parts of the ROK.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff of the ROK puppet army said that the DPRK is scattering a large number of balloons over the ROK from last night. It urged the DPRK to stop such an act at once, claiming that it is a clear violation of international law, an act of seriously threatening the security of ROK people and an unethical and lowbrow act.

We have tried something they have always been doing, but I cannot understand why they are making a fuss as if they were hit by shower of bullets.

After all, they hoisted a white flag just one day after they themselves have been exposed to the despicable article-scattering which the DPRK has called into question and demanded a stop for years.

I doubt whether those in the ROK could only see the balloons flying southwards without catching sight of the balloons flying northwards.

Scum-like clans of the ROK are now blatantly claiming that their leaflet-scattering towards the DPRK is "freedom of expression" and that the corresponding act of the DPRK is an "obvious violation of international law".

Are the "freedom of expression" and "international law" defined according to the direction in which balloons fly?

It is the height of impudence.

It is an opportunity to reconfirm how clumsy and brazen the ROK clans are.

The ROK clans must be subject to due pains as they tried to scatter leaflets, the political agitation rubbish slandering the idea and system of the DPRK regarded by all its people as sacred, and inject their mixed ideas raised at cesspools to the DPRK, and made a serious mockery of our people by scattering the cheap money and trifles which even mongrel dogs wouldn't like.

If they experience how unpleasant the feeling of picking up filth is and how tired it is, they will know that it is not easy to dare talk about freedom of expression as to the scattering near border area.

Today, I will get the following stand into shape:

"As the leaflet-scattering to the ROK belongs to our people's freedom of expression and provides the people in the ROK with the right to know, there is a limit for the government of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to immediately stop it. I courteously seek the ROK government's consent. …"

The ROK clans cannot deprive the DPRK people of their righteous "freedom of expression".

They should continue to pick up rubbish scattered by our people, regarding them really as "sincere presents" to the goblins of liberal democracy who are crying for the "guarantee for freedom of expression".

We make it clear that we will respond to the ROK clans on case-to-case basis by scattering rubbish dozens of times more than those being scattered to us, in the future. -0-
