North Korean propagandists claim that joint US-South Korean military exercises are “provocative and aggressive.”
In the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, it was reported that about 800 thousand people decided to voluntarily join the country’s armed forces to oppose the United States of America. The state newspaper of the DPRK Rodong Sinmun writes about this.
The authors of the publication claim that in just one day, hundreds of thousands of citizens allegedly volunteered to join the military or re-join the North Korean Armed Forces. It is noted that we are talking about workers and students.
Earlier, on March 16, North Korea also announced the test launch of the Hwaseongpo-17 intercontinental ballistic missile.
North Korean media called the event a response to joint US-South Korean military exercises, calling them “provocative and aggressive.”
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un watched the missile launch. He noted that the strengthening of the army should instill fear in opponents, as well as guarantee peace and “struggle for socialist construction.”
“Dear Comrade Kim Jong-un said that he would continuously let the United States and South Korea, which are openly hostile to our Republic and often hold large-scale military exercises in the Korean Peninsula region, understand their insanity,” the DPRK said.
Recall that on March 13 it became known about the launch of strategic cruise missiles of the DPRK from the Sinpo-class submarine 8.24 Yongung in the Gyeongpo Bay of the Sea of Japan. According to official figures, the shells hit targets from a distance of 1,500 kilometers.
We also wrote that according to Reuters on March 11, Kim Jong-un ordered to intensify military exercises to contain and respond to “real war”. According to the head of the DPRK, assault units should be able to seize the initiative in battle.
