Pyongyang, April 21 (KCNA) — A spokesman for the Ministry of Land and Environment Protection of the DPRK issued a statement on Thursday denouncing the south Korean puppet group for unhesitatingly letting fly balloons for causing fire to the forest area of the DPRK as a desperate campaign against it.
Balloons containing inflammable materials, timers and electric detonating devices were recently discovered in Mt. Kumgang area including Namae-ri and Onjong-ri, Kosong County, Kangwon Province and in Hanwol-ri, Anak County, South Hwanghae Province.
According to the investigation made by a competent institution of the DPRK, it has been confirmed that these balloons designed to cause fire at any place at the preset time were sent by the puppet group into the areas of the DPRK.
The statement said this proves that the Park Geun Hye group of traitors keen on escalating confrontation with the fellow countrymen is working hard to impose huge material damage and environmental disaster upon the DPRK by causing fire, not content with scattering anti-DPRK leaflets.
It went on:
The above-said moves are very hideous provocation and crime of the puppet group to disturb the forest restoration campaign now under way as the nationwide, all-people campaign and the building of a thriving nation in the DPRK.
All the successive south Korean puppet rulers have behaved mischievously, hell-bent on confrontation with the fellow countrymen in the north and but there have been no such depraved guys as the Park Geun Hye group who are working so hard to cause even a fire in the land of the nation in peacetime.
Such criminal act is touching off bitter indignation and hatred among the service personnel and people of the DPRK.
If the Park group persists in the above-said provocations, it will face strong corresponding counteraction of the DPRK.
