    Pyongyang, October 31 (KCNA) -- The U.S. imperialists committed at least 180 cases of aerial espionage against the DPRK in October with strategic and tactical reconnaissance planes of different missions, according to military sources. U-2 high-altitude reconnaissance planes made long flights in the sky above Tokjok Islet, Phochon and Sokcho almost everyday to spy on strategic objects of the DPRK.
    On Oct. 4 and 22 a RC-135 strategic reconnaissance plane made a shuttle flight in the sky 25 km east of Taebu Islet, Yangphyong and Yangyang, spying on objects in the depth area of the DPRK. On Oct. 6 and 10 an EP-3 electronic reconnaissance plane flew in the sky above Kangrung, Wonju and Suwon to spy on the coast and seabed of the DPRK.
    A P-3 patrol plane committed aerial espionage of major military objects in the DPRK on Oct. 5 and an E-3 commanding plane on Oct. 13 and 14. Meanwhile, the U.S. imperialists sent tactical reconnaissance planes of different types including RC-12 and RC-7B to spy on the frontline and coastal areas of our side.
    These aerial espionage flights clearly prove that the U.S. imperialists are desperately trying to stifle the DPRK militarily behind the scene though they are giving lip-service to the negotiated settlement of the nuclear issue.
