Pyongyang, June 28 (KCNA) — The Panmunjom Mission of the Korean People’s Army sent a message of protest to the U.S. imperialist aggression forces side Monday slamming the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet forces for introducing various types of heavy weapons to the portion of the south side in the area around the Panmunjom Conference Hall.
Fully armed U.S. imperialist aggression troops and the south Korean puppet army unhesitatingly committed this provocation in the eyes of the KPA, an indication that they are set to perpetrate a military provocation any moment, the message says, and goes on:
The U.S. forces side introduced those weapons at around 7:25 a.m. on June 26.
The introduction of heavy weapons to the area around the conference hall where armed forces of both sides stand in acute confrontation is a premeditated provocation aimed to spark off a serious military conflict.
The KPA side has followed with vigilance the moves of the U.S. forces side instigating the puppet forces to push the situation on the Korean Peninsula to such phase on the eve of the outbreak of a war and find an ignition point with June 25, the day of the start of the Korean War, as a momentum.
The KPA side notifies the U.S. forces side of its following principled stand as regards the latter’s serious military provocation:
1. The U.S. forces side should immediately stop the provocative introduction of heavy weapons to the area around the Panmunjom Conference Hall. It should withdraw all those weapons already introduced from the area at once.
2. In case it does not comply with the principled demand of the KPA side, it will take strong military countermeasures in the said area.
The U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet forces should never forget their bitter defeat six decades ago.
