DPRK to strengthen its defense system

Pyongyang, Aug 10 (Prensa Latina) On the instructions of its top leader, Kim Jong Un, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) will take new actions to strengthen its defense system, the state news agency KCNA reported.

Speaking at a meeting of the Central Military Commission of the Workers’ Party (WPK), the chairman of State Affairs noted that the worsening situation on the Korean peninsula makes it necessary to accelerate preparations for an eventual war confrontation.

His statements come just before the Eulji Freedom Shield maneuvers, to be carried out by the United States and South Korea from the 21st to the 24th and considered by Pyongyang as “war exercises to invade the North”.

Preparing a powerful army is essential to prevent the actions of enemy military forces, thwart any attempt to attack and dissuade them from going to war, the secretary general of the WPK warned.

It is necessary to conduct actual combat exercises to effectively operate the new-type armaments, learn their capabilities to the fullest and be in full combat readiness, he said.

Kim also called on the military factories to continue to expand and modernize to meet the operational demands of the army and consolidate the national defense system.
