Pyongyang warns: We will respond with the strongest action against

any attempt to violate our sovereignty

North Korea stressed that it would respond in the strongest countermeasure to any attempt to violate its sovereignty, criticizing South Korea and the United States for their joint air exercises.

Foreign Affairs issued the warning in a statement carried by the official Korean Central News Agency, K.I. B. S. Sunday, South Korean radio broadcast, "World."

The ministry said Pyongyang had clearly warned that

if the United States did not want to see a serious situation detrimental to its national interests, it should immediately cease the provoked joint aerial training "Vegelant Storm" i.e. "Storm of Vigilance."

The United States had ignored North Korea's demands

for joint aerial exercises for hostile targets, while extending the training period because of North Korea's legitimate anti-self-defence measure, and called for a Security Council meeting of the United Nations.

The Department described the American moves as "irresponsible and reckless", denouncing the air operation as a serious violation of the security of a sovereign State and a blatant challenge tothe desire of the world community for regional and Korean Peninsula peace and stability.

Pyongyang stated that

  • it would never tolerate any attempt
  • by hostile forces to violate their sovereignty
  • and security interests
  • stressing that they would respond with the strongest countermeasure.

North Korea

defended its military exercises as an appropriate reaction

and warning against hostile provocations

stressing that the dangerous military confrontation situation was the result of the United States and South Korea carrying out the largest ever joint aerial training.
