Deputy Department Director of WPK Central Committee Releases Press Statement

Kim Yo Jong, deputy department director of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, released the following press statement on July 7:

The ROK military gangsters recently kicked off live-ammunition drills on the ground and in the sea simultaneously near the southern border of the DPRK.

On June 26, they resumed their maritime live-fire drill that had been halted for a while in the biggest hotspot of the West Sea of Korea. They also launched artillery-fire drills near the front, including eastern and western sectors along the southern border, all at once on July 2.

Not content with this, the impudent enemy announced their plan to regularly stage artillery-fire drills and task forces’ training near the border of the DPRK and kick off various other military exercises such as large-scale combined outdoor mobile drill and joint live-fire drill of army and navy, in particular.

I affirm that such an undisguised war game being staged by the enemy on the doorstep of the DPRK is just an inexcusable and explicit provocation that aggravates the situation.

“War energy” has been over-concentrated on the Korean peninsula and its vicinity to reach the brink of explosion due to various war games of the US and other hostile forces and ceaseless deployment of their cutting-edge military hardware.

Freedom Edge, the first multi-domain joint military exercises between the US, Japan and the ROK staged shortly ago in the waters near the DPRK, was the height of confrontational hysteria against it. The war drumbeats clearly showed that the US and other hostile forces’ rash manoeuvres for military hegemony in the region have crossed the red line.

Under the current touch-and-go situation it is clear to everyone how risky the reckless live-ammunition fire drills the ROK army is conducting coming nearer to the border of the DPRK are.

Then, the question is why the enemy kicked off such war drills near the border in a fit of suicidal hysteria, for which they will have to sustain terrible disaster.

The world should pay attention to the fact that the number of people petitioning for proposing a bill on impeachment of Yoon Suk Yeol has exceeded one million as of today.

Yoon and his group, plagued by the worst ruling crisis, are attempting an “emergency escape” by means of ever-escalating tensions.

That is why the puppet regime persists in destabilizing the regional situation and stirring up the warmongering atmosphere despite internal and external criticism of the war maniacs, and even stages the extremely dangerous live-ammunition drill in the areas near the border.

It would be hard to find current security environment even in the past period of relations between the north and the south.

Now anyone cannot but acknowledge that the so-called president, elected by people, has made the fate of the ROK hang by a thread.

The war maniacs should judge by themselves what result such desperate war drill hysteria would end up with.

In case it is judged according to our criteria that they have violated the sovereignty of the DPRK and committed an act tantamount to a declaration of war, our armed forces will immediately carry out their mission and duty assigned by the DPRK Constitution.
