Pyongyang, November 20 (KCNA) — The Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland (CPRF) bitterly denounced the South Korean authorities for developing new-type missiles, considering it an unpardonable provocation against us and a grave threat to peace and security on the Korean peninsula.
This came in a statement issued on November 19 as regards their secret development of long-range ballistic missile.
The statement said:
The development stemmed from the despicable intention to round off war preparations against the fellow countrymen with the backing of outside forces and ignite a war against the north any moment.
The South Korean authorities must stop developing long-range ballistic missiles at once. The United States must not connive at and foster the development.
We do not want a war but will not remain a passive onlooker to the moves to do harm to the nation.
It is the unbreakable will and steadfast stand of the Korean people and people’s army to sternly punish the aggressors and provocateurs for reckless war preparations.
If the South Korean warhawks persist in developing long-range ballistic missiles in South Korea at the instigation of the U.S., their master, ignoring our warnings, we will take a strong countermeasure to cope with it.
