The army of north korea is “fully ready” to take action against South Korea, said Tuesday the media in north korea, in a new verbal escalation on the peninsula.
Since the beginning of the month, Pyongyang has stepped up the attacks the vitriol against its neighbor, in particular against the defectors north Korean, from South, send to North leaflets of propaganda across the demilitarized Zone (DMZ).
And last week, the north Korean regime announced the closure of its channels of communication in political and military terms with the”enemy” of south korea.
The leaflets, which are often attached to balloons that fly up to the territory of north korea, or inserted in bottles thrown into the border river, typically contain criticisms of the balance sheet of Kim Jong A matter of Human rights or its nuclear ambitions.
Some experts believe that Pyongyang is seeking to provoke a crisis with Seoul at a time when the nuclear negotiations with Washington are at the stop.
Taking note of the deterioration of relations intercoréennes, the general staff of the Korean people’s Army said Tuesday that it was working to a “plan of action” to “transform into a fortress, the front line”, according to the agency official north Korean KCNA.
This would entail including the reoccupation of areas that were demilitarized under an agreement inter-Korean, he said.
The south Korean media suspect that this could mean the relocation of guard posts that the two neighbours had decided in 2018 to remove to ease the tensions.
The army’s north Korean projects as shipments of leaflets “large-scale” in the direction of the South, according to the release.
On Monday, the south Korean president Moon Jae-in, a great artisan of the rapprochement of 2018, had urged the North not to leave “the window of dialogue closing”.
Since the protests in the North against the mailings of leaflets from the South, Seoul has started legal proceedings against two groups of dissidents in north korea accused of having sent these items of propaganda from the other side of the border.
The Korean War (1950-1953) was marked by an armistice, not a peace agreement, which means that the two neighbors are still technically in a state of war.
