DPRK NDC Policy Department Blasts U.S., S. Korea for Turning Southwestern Waters in West Sea into Hottest Spot Waters

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

Pyongyang, June 25 (KCNA) -- The Policy Department of the National Defence Commission (NDC) of the DPRK in a detailed report on Saturday disclosed and denounced the thrice-cursed crimes committed by the sworn enemy given the prevailing situation in the hot spot waters in the West Sea which can be called the epitome of the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK and the south Korean puppet forces' policy for confrontation with the DPRK.

The report disclosed the sinister nature of the gangster-like U.S. which turned the West Sea of Korea into the hottest spot waters.

The military tension in these waters that does not subside despite the passage of time is the extension of the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK and its direct product, the report said, and went on:

Back in 1953 when the June 25 war ended in truce, the U.S. moved desperately to create a starting point for a new war.

On many occasions such as the 346th meeting of the Military Armistice Committee in December 1973, the DPRK-U.S. general-level talks in Panmunjom in August and September 1999, the U.S. categorically ignored the efforts made by the DPRK side to set the maritime military demarcation line in the West Sea and prevent the military conflict there.

The U.S. has been without exception behind the vicious moves of the puppet forces of south Korea to escalate the military tension in the hot spot waters in the West Sea into the estuary of the River Han.

Lots of artillery live-shell firing drills in the said waters and the ceaseless intrusion into the territorial waters and air of the DPRK after the fabrication of the "northern limit line" in the West Sea of Korea clearly prove that the U.S. is the arch criminal ratcheting military tension and the danger of conflict in these waters.

The report also disclosed the moves of the south Korean puppet forces, a group of hideous warmongers who turned the sea common to the nation into the hot spot waters of confrontation and conflict. It continued:

The puppet Command for the Defense of Northwestern Islands of south Korea which regards the hot spot waters in the West Sea as its operational theatre held a "memorial service" for those who met deaths while running riot in the forefront areas for confrontation with the fellow countrymen and also has been hell-bent on another round of provocation while crying out for "punishment".

This was timed to coincide with the farce for taking a posture for putting an end to the "north's provocation" within 24 hours by task forces of the puppet navy and marine corps commissioned in May.

From 16th to 18th, dozens of large combat warships of the puppet navy and coastal police staged marine mobile drills with fighters with different missions involved. They also staged air defence drill, exercises for defending the area they are stationed and exercises for countering underwater infiltration while crying out for turning the hot spot waters into the "grave" of someone and escalating military stand-off for the purpose.

In fact, the military situation in the hot spot waters in the West Sea has gone beyond the phase of control.

A clear proof of it was the reckless military actions committed by the puppet military gangsters on May 27.

The provocative marine infiltration is without exception supported by the puppet air force and ground artillery pieces with the involvement of the fully-armed marine groups made up of puppet warships.

The sinister aim sought by the south Korean puppet forces is to deliberately invade the inviolable territorial waters of the DPRK and make a preemptive strike and thus compel the Korean People's Army to take counteraction for self-defence and then paint the DPRK as the chieftain of "provocation" and "threat" by setting in motion reptile reactionary media and push the situation in the hot spot waters in the West Sea to the brink of war.

The most urgent task for ensuring peace and security on the Korean peninsula at present is to put the situation in the hot spot waters in the West Sea under control, the report said, and noted:

The increasing military tension has to be deescalated and the daily mounting danger of military conflict has to be defused at an early date.

Traitor Park Geun Hye and her group finding themselves at risk in the face of the worst "administrative" crisis are pushing the situation in the sensitive hot spot waters in the West Sea to the point of explosion at the zealous instigation of their American master.

The hot spot waters in the West Sea made us keenly realize in practice the truth that talking would never help achieve peace and only matchlessly powerful arms will ensure genuine peace.

Steadfast is the will of the army and people of the DPRK to prevent the danger of conflict in the hot spot waters in the West Sea, improve the north-south relations and defuse tension on the Korean peninsula.

The U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces should admit their criminal responsibility for turning the southwestern waters into the world's hottest spot waters and immediately stop their reckless military provocations. -0-
