Pyongyang, July 1 (KCNA) — The U.S. has deployed latest “U-2 S Block 20” in south Korea, timed to coincide with its evermore undisguised military threat and blackmail against the DPRK. This is another grave military provocation against the DPRK and an extremely dangerous move for a war of aggression against it to push the situation on the Korean Peninsula to the brink of war.
A spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland said this in a statement on June 30.
The reality clearly indicates that the U.S. remains unchanged in its criminal attempt to stifle the DPRK by force of arms, the statement noted, and continued:
The U.S. is recklessly driving the situation on the peninsula to the brink of war, preoccupied with the moves for a war against the DPRK. This grave situation once again goes to prove that peace has been preserved on the peninsula so far entirely thanks to the DPRK’s strong war deterrent.
Now that the U.S. is set to ignite a nuclear war for the purpose of disturbing peace and stability on the peninsula by force, the DPRK is compelled to bolster up its deterrent for self-defence under the uplifted banner of Songun.
The army and people of the DPRK are fully prepared to counter any provocation and challenge of the U.S.
