DPRK calls attack on U.S. ambassador to S. Korea “deserved punishment” [Xinhua]
PYONGYANG, March 5 (Xinhua) — The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Thursday called the razor-wielding attack on the U.S. ambassador to South Korea earlier in the day a “deserved punishment”, the official KCNA news agency reported.
“The recent case amid mounting anti-Americanism reflects the mindset of South Korean people censuring the U.S. for bringing the danger of a war to the Korean Peninsula through the madcap saber-rattling,” the report said…
…Pyongyang on Monday blasted the U.S.-S.Korea joint annual military drills that run from March 2 to April 24, calling the exercises codenamed “Key Resolve” and “Foal Eagle” “intolerable aggression moves.”
On the same day, an unnamed spokesman for the DPRK’s General Staff of the Korean People’s Army issued a statement, threatening to retaliate the military exercises with the “toughest measures” and saying the DPRK’s armed forces “are fully ready” to strike their designated targets.
