DPRK condemns militarization of the cosmos

Pyongyang, Nov 21 (Prensa Latina) The militarization of outer space for preemptive strike purposes is unjustifiable, Ri Song Jin, a researcher at the National Aerospace Technology Directorate, said in a commentary published by the state news agency KCNA.

The expert noted that the U.S. and its allies in the region are stepping up satellite surveillance systems on strategic targets of the DPRK and peripheral countries.

Such acts, he noted, are part of military provocations to increase the DPRK’s in-depth surveillance capability over strategic targets and to carry out what they call “a preventive strike in time of emergency.”

He recalled that on a recent visit to South Korea, U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd James Austin III announced the activation in the region this year of a real-time missile warning data sharing system in order to gain strategic superiority over the DPRK, China and Russia.

The expert pointed out that such actions have a frankly provocative character, stimulate the arms race in the region and seriously undermine the strategic balance and security structure of the planet.

He warned that this leads the DPRK to strengthen its satellite system for defense purposes and stressed that this is a sovereign right of the country to defend its strategic security interests and to maintain peace and security in the region.
