Pyongyang, June 30 (KCNA) -- The National Defence Commission (NDC) of the DPRK sent the following special proposal to the south Korean authorities on Monday:

The continued state of frozen north-south relations is making the wounds of the territorial division ever deeper and the nation's cherished desire for reunification has reached such a phase that can no longer be overlooked.

The three principles of national reunification which the north and the south agreed upon to adhere to before the nation and even the ennobling spirit of By Our Nation Itself have been ruthlessly violated. This is the present tragic reality.

True to the noble intention of the peerless patriot to set right this painful situation, the DPRK side sent a crucial proposal and an open letter to the south Korean authorities, political parties and social organizations only to receive a cool response.

The valuable agreement reached at the north-south high-level contact, which was arranged with much effort in Febr…

Shin Hye Young at Korea-Russia Military Bands Joint Concert, June 2014

Pyongyang, June 26 (KCNA) -- The Command of the Southwestern Front of the Korean People's Army (KPA) released the following crucial report on Thursday:

On Thursday the warmongers of the south Korean puppet military committed such a grave military provocation as firing shells at the waters of the DPRK side from the waters around Yonphyong Island without any prior notice.

This reckless military provocation is an undisguised revelation of their sinister design to ignite a war against the DPRK by deliberately making a clumsy fire on its inviolable territorial waters. This is fully evidenced by the recent situation prevailing in the hot spot of the West Sea of Korea.

The intrusion into the territorial waters of the DPRK side being perpetrated by warships of the puppet army under the pretext of intercepting fishing boats is escalating day by day and there continues day and night the mad-cap firing and shelling on Paekryong, Yonphyong, Taechong and other islands.

In order to cope with th…

Pyongyang, June 25 (KCNA) -- The Panmunjom mission of the Korean People's Army on Wednesday released a detailed report condemning the U.S. for pushing the Korean peninsula to constant danger of a war and imposing unspeakable misfortune and pain on the Korean nation.

The U.S. has deliberately aggravated the situation on the peninsula by violating the Armistice Agreement, the legal mechanism to prevent the recurrence of a war, the report said, and went on:

The U.S. signed the "mutual defense treaty" with the south Korean puppet forces on August 8, 1953, thus legitimizing the permanent presence of the U.S. imperialist aggressors in south Korea. This was a blatant violation of Paragraph 60 of Article 4 of the AA which calls for withdrawing all foreign forces from Korea and peacefully settling the Korean issue.

It systematically breached Paragraph 13 d which bans the introduction into Korea of all arms and equipment, Paragraph 23 of Article 2 related to activities of the mech…

Pyongyang, June 25 (KCNA) -- The spokesman for the National Peace Committee of Korea in a statement Wednesday said the Korean war of aggression ignited by the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet forces was the thrice-cursed crime.

On June 25, 1950 the U.S. imperialists instigated traitor Syngman Rhee to launch a surprise invasion against the DPRK and killed Koreans by the most cruel means and methods and reduced this land to debris, the statement noted, and continued:

More than 1.2 million guiltless peaceable civilians were massacred in cold blood by barbarous man-killers hell-bent on aggression and man-hunting and mountains and rivers were drenched with human blood. Planes of the U.S. imperialist aggressors indiscriminately dropped nearly 600 000 tons of bombs and napalm bombs on areas of the DPRK, reducing them to such horrible ashes that not a single house and a piece of brick were left undestroyed.

Human history records the cruelest and the most shuddering crimes committ…

Pyongyang, June 24 (KCNA) -- The National Reunification Institute released an indictment Tuesday terming the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet forces provokers of the Korean war and aggressors and harassers of peace who run amuck to ignite a war of aggression against the DPRK.

The indictment said:

The U.S. imperialists landed in south Korea to launch aggression and divide the Korean nation into two right after Japan's defeat in August 1945. They then buckled down to making full-fledged preparations for a war against the DPRK.

Enforcing a military rule in south Korea, they worked hard to create socio-political environment favorable for rallying pro-U.S. and reactionary forces and igniting a war.

The true colors of the U.S. as a chief culprit who spearheaded the preparations for provoking the Korean war were brought to light by its moves for organizing the puppet army and rapidly reinforcing it so that it might play the role of a shock brigade in executing the war.

Nationwide Emergency Measure Committe against Nuclear War Exercises against the North

Pyongyang, June 14 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Nationwide Emergency Measure Committee against Nuclear War Exercises against the North released a statement Saturday in connection with the disclosure of the fact that the south Korean puppet forces have tried to join in the U.S. missile defense system by introducing U.S. THAAD into south Korea.

The U.S. and the south Korean authorities' MD moves are a dangerous military provocation to mount a preemptive nuclear attack on the DPRK and a hideous criminal act to unleash a nuclear war on the Korean Peninsula and in the rest of Northeast Asia, the spokesman said, and went on:

Washington and Seoul are now blustering that the deployment of THAAD in south Korea is aimed to cope with a "nuclear threat" from the north.

The U.S. has posed nuclear threats to the DPRK to stifle it and this compelled the latter to have access to a nuclear deterrence for s…

NPCK Spokesman's Statement

Pyongyang, June 13 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the National Peace Committee of Korea (NPCK) issued a statement on Friday in connection with the disclosure of the south Korean puppet forces' attempt to join in the U.S. missile defence system (MD) by introducing THAAD into south Korea.

The statement said:

The deployment of the THAAD, the core of the U.S. MD, has been forced upon south Korea by the U.S. since long ago, but the puppet group pretended to refuse it for fear of opposition from the DPRK and its neighboring countries.

South Korean media and people from all walks of life are expressing irrepressible indignation and showing increasing concern over the puppet group seeking the deployment of THAAD and join in the MD in actuality, pretending to take a negative approach towards them.

China and other neighboring countries are warning that if the puppet authorities deploy THAAD in south Korea, this will sacrifice the bilateral relations and south Korea …
