Pyongyang, August 27 (KCNA) -- The chief of security officers of the Korean People's Army (KPA) at Panmunjom warned the provocateurs as follows Saturday against their deliberate provocation getting on the nerves of the soldiers of the KPA side in the area of Panmunjom:
Floodlight directed at the KPA side at random is taken as an intolerable means of provocation and it will be the target of merciless pinpoint shots.
The fate of provocateurs running reckless in front of the KPA side cannot be otherwise.
The KPA does not make an empty talk.
According to the chief of security officers, the enemies are directing high-wattage floodlight to the observation outpost of the KPA side and committing deliberate provocation rattling the nerves of KPA soldiers on purpose from Friday evening in the sensitive area of Panmunjom at a time when the situation on the Korean peninsula has reached the brink of a war due to the Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military drills the U.S. imperialists started with the south Korean puppet forces.
This has seriously threatened the safety of the KPA soldiers on duty and hindered their normal observation activities. Saying that Panmunjom is well known as the hotspot where even an accidental minor act may spill over into an irrevocable physical conflict in a moment, the chief continued: The U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet forces who are well aware of this are escalating the tension on the Korean peninsula to extremes while conducting the joint military drill for aggression. The provocation being committed against this backdrop cannot be construed otherwise than a premeditated and intentional plot against the KPA.
The true aim sought by the provocateurs through their recent act is to seriously get on the nerves of the KPA soldiers, lead them to take due countermeasures and label them as provocation.
The chief clarified that the KPA soldiers at Panmunjom are closely following the moves of the provocateurs.
