Foolish Ambition of S. Korean Warmongers Blasted

Pyongyang, November 30 (KCNA) -- The foolish ambition of the south Korean warmongers to "preserve" the "northern limit line" can never come true, says Rodong Sinmun Tuesday in a signed article.

The recent provocation perpetrated by the south Korean puppet forces was part of their sinister moves to "preserve" the said line, the article notes, and goes on:

The ulterior aim sought by them through this was to make public believe that the DPRK recognized the waters around Yonphyong Island as their "territorial waters" in case there was no physical reaction on the part of the DPRK to their shelling.

The "northern limit line" touted by the south Korean warmongers is nothing but an unjustifiable illegal bogus line. The puppet forces seek to justify their recent military provocation under the pretext of this line.

But it is stipulated in the Korean Armistice Agreement that all the waters lying to the north and west of the provincial boundary line between Hwanghae-do and Kyonggi-do shall be under the military control of the Korean People's Army. The UN forces side also clarified that it has under its control only five islets--Paekryong, Thaechong, Sochong, Yonphyong and Udo islets in the waters under the military control of the DPRK side.

Even in the light of the UN Convention on Sea and the south Korean "law on territorial waters" the "northern limit line" cannot be recognized as a demarcation line as it is clearly drawn inside the territorial waters of the DPRK.

The south Korean puppet group is describing the recent provocation as "a violation of the AA." It is so wild rumor that it is not worth consideration.

The war maneuvers being staged by the south Korean warmongers, again making a far-fetched assertion about the "northern limit line," bring to light their dangerous criminal intention to use the recent incident as a fuse to ignite a war against the DPRK. Traitor Lee Myung Bak's noisy call for "a several fold-punishment" of the DPRK was aimed to hype the incident and ignite a war of aggression against the DPRK come what may.

If the south Korean bellicose forces persist in their moves to "preserve the northern limit line," failing to draw a lesson from the incident, the DPRK will take strong countermeasures, warns the article.
