DPRK Warns S. Korean Authorities of Anti-DPRK Operation

Korean Central News Agency of DPRK via Korea News Service (KNS)

Pyongyang, January 15 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK National Defence Commission issued a statement on January 15 which reads in full:

It was reported by foreign press that the south Korean authorities recently worked out what they called "Emergency Ruling Plan-Puhung" to cope with a sort of "emergency" in the DPRK.

The south Korean newspaper Munhwa Ilbo on January 13 did not bother to open to media the plan reportedly worked out by tricksters of the south Korean "Ministry of Unification" handling issues of the inter-Korean relations and the "National Intelligence Service" in top secrecy from the autumn last year to its end.

This provocative plan reportedly puts into a concrete form the contents of the vicious scenario for toppling the system in the DPRK. After classifying the categories of "emergency" which is unimaginable in the DPRK and can never happen here into "incident", "coup d'etat", "revolt of inhabitants" and others the plan calls for deliberately "fostering and hyping them to the maximum" with an aim to bring down the dignified socialist system in the DPRK and putting into force even "administrative measures" to cope with them.

The "Emergency Ruling Plan-Puhung" is a plan for bringing down the socialist system in the DPRK unilaterally worked out by the south Korean authorities while the already publicized "OPLAN 5029" is a scenario for toppling the system in the DPRK jointly drafted by the American master and his stooge with an aim to bring it to a "collapse."

The army and people of the DPRK regarded from the outset the improved north-south relations and the resumption of dialogue touted by riff-raffs of south Korea including its chief executive as sheer hypocrisy and have followed their rhetoric with vigilance without even a moment's slackness.

They did so because it was none other than the south Korean authorities who have played a double game since they designated fellow countrymen as "a principal enemy," insisting on the cooperation with outsiders even today when the desire and demand of the Koreans for peace and reunification are growing strong throughout Korea.

Looking back on history, no sooner had the south Korean authorities come to power than they negated the two historic declarations, gains common to the nation, and cried out for "unification under liberal democracy". They unhesitatingly cried out for even "preemptive attack on the north" while kicking up an "anti-north human rights racket" and anti-DPRK psychological campaign.

Under the prevailing grave situation, the National Defence Commission of the DPRK responsible for the security of the socialist system in the DPRK and its defence, is authorized to clarify internally and externally the iron will and tough stand of the army and people of the DPRK as follows:

1. The south Korean authorities should immediately disband the present "Ministry of Unification" and the "National Intelligence Service" of south Korea, the architects of the treacherous, anti-reunification and anti-peace "Emergency Ruling Plan-Puhung", and promptly take due measures to severely punish the prime movers of the said reckless plan for confrontation at the nation's trial.

It is the steadfast stand of the army and people of the DPRK that there can be neither national reconciliation and cooperation nor improved inter-Korean relations as long as such plot-breeding mechanisms as the present "Ministry of Unification" and the "National Intelligence Service" are left intact in south Korea.

2. Once the reckless provocative plan of the south Korean authorities to bring down the supreme headquarters of our revolution and the dignified socialist system is completed and put into practice, there will start a sacred nationwide retaliatory battle to blow up the stronghold of the south Korean authorities including "Chongwadae" that have led the drafting of the plan and backed it.

This battle will be a nationwide and all-out just struggle with all the fellow countrymen in the north and the south and abroad including our revolutionary armed forces.

3. The south Korean authorities should bear in mind that they will be thoroughly excluded from all the forthcoming dialogues and negotiations to improve the inter-Korean relations and ensure peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula unless they make sincere apology for the crimes committed against the DPRK before the whole nation.

They should clearly understand that whoever incites distrust and confrontation, instead of working for national reconciliation and cooperation, and seeks war and division, not peace and reunification, is fated to meet a merciless punishment by the strong revolutionary army of Mt. Paektu.
