S. Korean Military Warned against Anti-north Provocation
Korean Central News Agency of DPRK
Pyongyang, February 28 (KCNA) -- The Navy Command of the Korean People's Army issued a press release Monday to accuse the south Korean army of its continued military provocations in the West Sea of Korea.
Its full text says:
Recently the south Korean army infiltrated its warships into the waters of the north side in the West Sea of Korea without letup.
On Feb. 27 and 28 following Feb. 24 the south Korean military authorities again infiltrated warships several times into the waters of our side south of Kuwol Hill and Sunwi Islet, thus escalating military tension there.
The south Korean army's undisguised military provocation in the West Sea, which is timing to coincide with the U.S. imperialists' frenzied war moves against the north to stifle it by force under the pretext of the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula, is an intolerable challenge to us and a traitorous act.
We warn the south Korean military authorities that their act of perpetrating military provocations, contrary to the idea of "by our nation itself" and driving the north-south relations to the phase of confrontation, clinging to the coattails of the outsiders would be a foolish act of digging their own graves.
