DPRK warns against moves by US and allies on Korean peninsula

Pyongyang, Nov 16 (Prensa Latina) The Armed Forces of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) will firmly preserve peace and security on the Korean peninsula, a spokesman for the Ministry of National Defense said on Thursday.

In a statement quoted by the state news agency KCNA, the official denounced the actions by the United States and its allies in South Korea and Japan, which are exacerbating the situation in the region under the pretext of adjusting their “deterrence” strategy.

The dispatch of the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan and other sophisticated war means is really aimed at delivering a preemptive nuclear strike against the DPRK, he said.

Other such actions were the activation of the trilateral “nuclear advisory group” and the holding of the large-scale joint military exercises Ulji Freedom Shield and Vigilant Defense, the spokesman added.

He said that such events are beyond the limit of military confrontation and that it is due to the firm stand of the DPRK Armed Forces that a conflict has not occurred.

“The noble mission of our army is to maintain its combat capability to preserve the country’s territorial integrity and foil any military provocation or attempted aggression.

The DPRK Armed Forces will control all threats against the security of our State (…) to cope with the threats to instability and security on the Korean peninsula by the US and its allies, he stressed.
