Press Statement of Vice Department Director of C.C., WPK Kim Yo Jong

Pyongyang, June 10 (KCNA) -- Kim Yo Jong, vice department director of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, issued the following press statement on Sunday.

The ROK connived at the provocative act of scattering the political agitation rubbish across the border of the DPRK again on June 6 and 7 despite our repeated warning against the intemperate psychological warfare of the scum who defected from the DPRK, thus aggravating the situation.

In the period between June 6 and 8, the despicable political agitation rubbish was discovered in Singye and Thosan counties of North Hwanghae Province, Jangphung County and Phanmun District of Kaesong Municipality, Kosan, Phyonggang and Cholwon counties of Kangwon Province and other areas of the DPRK near the border.

As already warned, the DPRK scattered 7.5 tons of waste paper with more than 1 400 balloons over the border of the ROK from the night of June 8 to the dawn of June 9.

As you will see, we have only scattered empty waste paper without any political agitation.

It is quite different from the provocative political agitation rubbish scattered by the scum of the ROK against the DPRK.

Our minimum reaction is only the just and reflective reaction at the very low level.

Our reaction was scheduled to end on June 9, but the situation has changed.

The reason was explained by the act of the ROK.

The loudspeaker broadcasting provocation started in the border area at last.

This is a prelude to a very dangerous situation.

Politicians of Seoul are trying hard to justify their stand with the only and strange deformed logic in the world that regulates and judges the "freedom of expression" and "provocation" in the windward direction. And they formalized their behavior just like a guilty filing the suit first that they have resumed the loudspeaker broadcasting smear campaign again against the DPRK's counteraction against their challengeable act, thus creating a new crisis.

We strongly denounce the despicable and childish behavior of the ROK and clarify our stand responding to it.

If the ROK simultaneously carries out the leaflet scattering and loudspeaker broadcasting provocation over the border, it will undoubtedly witness the new counteraction of the DPRK.

The ROK will suffer a bitter embarrassment of picking up waste paper without rest and it will be its daily work.

I sternly warn Seoul to stop at once the dangerous act of bringing the further confrontation crisis and discipline itself. -0- (Juche113.6.10.)
