Pyongyang, December 4 After US President revived the threat of military force against Pyongyang on Dec. 3 during the NATO summit in Britain, North Korea’s army chief said he was disappointed by Donald Trump’s statement and warned that any strike would meet a quick response.
Trump statement came after Korea said it was preparing a chritmas gift for the US if the admintration failed to meet its demands by year end.
Pak Jong Chon, chief of the General Staff of the Korean People’s Army said, “I heard that the U.S. president made undesirable remarks about the DPRK on Dec. 3 during the NATO summit in Britain.The Supreme Commander of our armed forces was also displeased to hear it.
The DPRK and the U.S. are still technically at war and the state of truce can turn into an all-out armed conflict any moment even by any accidental case”, state media reported on Wednesday.
“One thing I would like to make clear is that the use of armed forces is not the privilege of the U.S. only,” he said.
Recently the armed forces of the U.S. have shown unusual military moves targeting the DPRK, and we are analyzing the effects those military actions can have on the security of the DPRK and are getting ourselves ready to cope with them.
Pak said that it would be a “horrible thing” for the United States if Washington launched an attack, and that North Korea would take “prompt corresponding actions at any level,” KCNA said.
I think the only guarantee that deters physical conflict from flaring up in relations between the DPRK and the U.S. despite such a dangerous military stand-off is the close relations between the top leaders of the DPRK and the U.S.
