Pyongyang, April 8 (KCNA) -- Secretary of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea Kim Yang Gon visited the Kaesong Industrial Zone Monday to size up the situation. Fierce controversy has now emerged over the issue of the Kaesong Industrial Zone blamed on the U.S. and the south Korean conservative authorities' hostile acts against the DPRK and their moves for a war against it.

Kim Yang Gon was accompanied by officials concerned of the Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea and the General Bureau for Central Guidance to the Development of the Special Zone.

Kim Yang Gon toured the Kaesong Industrial Zone office of the General Bureau, Kaesong Industrial Zone combined supporting center and other units and production sites inside the zone. He also went to the checkpoint in the zone and the central line separating the north-south road along the Military Demarcation Line. He drew attention to the fate of the zone that has been put at stake as the south Korean conservative authorities aggravated the situation by making remarks slandering the dignity of the DPRK over the zone issue.

Minister of Defense of south Korea Kim Kwan Jin openly disclosed his scenario to dispatch a special unit of the U.S. forces to the zone, while crying out for an operation for 'rescuing hostages'. Kim Yang Gon branded the scheme as an intentional provocation to make the zone a starting point of a war.

He called for maintaining strained and mobilized posture on a high alert with the U.S. and the south Korean warmongers stepping up moves to provoke a war against the DPRK.

It has become impossible to operate the zone as usual due to the south Korean warmongers' reckless acts, Kim Yang Gon said. He held a consultative meeting on the spot and entrusted relevant fields with detailed tasks, urging them to get fully ready to cope with whatever development in the zone.
