Pyongyang, August 21 (KCNA) -- The worst touch-and-go situation was created on the Korean Peninsula.
The warlike developments such as crossfire, broadcasting for
psychological warfare and scattering of leaflets in peace time throw
into uneasiness Northeast Asia including the peninsula.
What is the cause and who spearheads it?
Now the world attention is focused on large-scale Ulji Freedom
Guardian joint military drills being staged by the U.S. and south Korean
puppet forces on the peninsula.
Due to the exercises, typical north-targeted nuclear test war drill
for making preemptive nuclear strike at the DPRK, the sky, the land and
seas of south Korea turned into theatres of war maneuvers for invading
Timed to coincide with this, the south Korean puppet forces totally
resumed the broadcasting for "psychological warfare against the north"
under the pretext of the suspicious "mine explosion" that occurred in
the demilitarized zone in the western sector of the front on August 4,
forcibly linking the case with the DPRK.
The puppet military gangsters continue the said broadcasting day and
night on the whole front and, at the same time, are carrying out the
"operation of scattering leaflets toward the north" with the
mobilization of wicked reactionary organizations.
Those acts have recently become more intensified than the past
period in their scale and frequency to reach the extreme phase which can
not be overlooked any longer.
The resumption of the broadcasting on the front is a wanton
violation of the north-south military agreements, a grave military
provocation against the DPRK and a crucial case pushing the inter-Korean
relations to the worst phase.
What should not be overlooked is that the puppet military warmongers
fired 36 shells at KPA civil police posts under the pretext that the
KPA fired one shell at the south side in the central western sector of
the front on August 20.
The Park Geun Hye group is escalating confrontation with the fellow
countrymen in parallel with the broadcasting for psychological warfare
while conducting the large-scale joint military maneuvers with the U.S.
This means an undisguised advance into the state of war for aggression.
An emergency enlarged meeting of the Central Military Commission of
the Workers' Party of Korea was convened and the supreme commander of
the Korean People's Army issued an order to cope with the prevailing
dangerous situation. This is a historic measure to frustrate the vicious
politically-motivated military provocation of the hostile forces aimed
at undermining the political idea and social system of the DPRK,
overturning its political power and putting all its territory under
The army and people of the DPRK are hardening the strong will of retaliation upon the order of the KPA supreme commander.
The DPRK army is full of surging indignation at the puppet
military's provocative saber-rattling and is high in the spirit of
annihilating the enemy with its guns leveled at the means for
psychological warfare, ready to completely destroy them through
immediate military action.
The ultimatum issued by the General Staff of the Korean People's
Army that a strong military action would be launched at once unless the
south Korean puppet forces stop the anti-DPRK broadcasting for
psychological warfare and remove all psywar means within 48 hours is not
just a mere warning.
The U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces should not act rashly
just like a puppy knowing no fear of the tiger, but clearly understand
the will of retaliation of the angered army of the DPRK and behave with
Those who pushed the situation to a catastrophic phase are bound to meet merciless retaliation. -0-
