DPRK protests over presence of US aircraft carrier in South Korea

Pyongyang, Jun 24 (Prensa Latina) The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) said that the arrival on Saturday of the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt and other U.S. naval units in South Korea is another provocation worthy of a deterrent action.

In a statement carried by the state-run ACNC news agency, Vice Defense Minister Kim Kang Il said that this is the latest of several threatening episodes carried out by Washington and Seoul in recent days.

He recalled that on the 5th, the two countries used in a joint exercise a B-1B strategic nuclear bomber, capable of dropping highly accurate guided bombs.

Meanwhile, on the 10th, the so-called US-South Korea Nuclear Consultative Group reviewed the guidance on the strategic nuclear plan and its operability, and from the 17th to the 20th special joint maneuvers were carried out.

Kim Kang Il said the move with the Theodore Roosevelt in South Korea had an “obvious” objective and said it was a “very dangerous adventure” that opened the possibility of a deterrent measure by the DPRK.

The aircraft carrier is accompanied by the destroyers Halsey and Daniel Inouye and is the first ship of its type to appear in South Korea after the Carl Vinson in November last year.
