Pyongyang, July 19 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry gave the following answer to the question raised by KCNA Tuesday as regards the fact that the U.S. ambassador to south Korea took a F-16 under the U.S. 7th Air Force to fly the sky over south Korea on July 12: This is nothing but a bullying act that can be done only by a deranged man.
The fact that he who is outwardly a diplomat took the fighter unbecoming for his duty goes to clearly prove that all the U.S. diplomats are real war servants. At the moment when the U.S. ever more undisguised hostile moves and nuclear threats against the DPRK are bringing the dark clouds of a nuclear war to hang over the Korean peninsula, it is a very meaningful thing that the U.S. ambassador to south Korea who personally has a hand in shaping the U.S. DPRK policy and implementing it flew above south Korea aboard fighter.
What should not be overlooked is that such a crazy act was timed to coincide with the U.S. official decision to deploy THAAD in south Korea in the wake of the introduction of nuclear submarines and a formation of B-52Hs and other strategic assets into south Korea.
The ill-boding moves of the U.S. being observed one after another with the joint military exercises Ulji Freedom Guardian for aggression to be staged in upcoming August indicate its intention to press for the unprecedented acts on the Korean peninsula.
We are closely following these moves of the U.S. and will take stronger self-defensive nuclear countermeasures for defending the country's sovereignty and the nation's right to existence from the U.S. daily-increasing nuclear war threats.
