Provocation to Be Surely Made to Pay
Pyongyang, August 2 (KCNA) -- Ryu Kyong Chol, a researcher of the Korea-Europe Association, issued the following article "Provocation will be surely made to pay" on August 1:

Some days ago, a formation of fighter planes of the French Air Force staged a joint aerial drill in the region of south Korea with the puppet air force.

This is an irresponsible act of fanning up the acute tensions in the Korean Peninsula and an undisguised military provocation of threatening the security and interests of the DPRK, in support of the U.S. hostile policy towards it.

The U.S. is now operating the "Nuclear Consultative Group", a nuclear war mechanism, with the south Korean puppets, while pushing ahead with the nuclear war scheme against the DPRK at the practical stage. And it has deployed a super-large strategic nuclear submarine loaded with nuclear warheads enough to reduce a country to ashes, driving the situation of the Korean Peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war.

Just at this time, France dispatched its fighter planes to the Korean Peninsula which is technically at war. It cannot be construed otherwise than an act of regarding the DPRK as an enemy.

Such dispatch to our enemy's area was made at the time when our people, who paid a dear price to defend their country from the aggression by the U.S. and its allies following it blindly, were celebrating the anniversary of victory in the war. This arouses due indignation of the DPRK people.

If other country's fighter planes fly to the sky above the Strait of Dover and its vicinity, in league with France's enemy country, to pose threat to the security of Paris, we wonder how the French people will react to this.

Without taking into consideration the situation of the Korean Peninsula going to the brink of war and the feelings of the DPRK people, France dispatched its fighters to the region of south Korean puppets. The fact goes to prove that France has not yet drawn a lesson from the last Korean War in which it shed insignificant blood for the so-called ally.

This is not the first time France took action against the DPRK.

It is well known to everyone that France criticized every measure of the DPRK for bolstering up its military capability for self-defence to cope with the nuclear threat from the U.S. and persistently got on the nerves of the DPRK by sending warships and patrol planes to the waters of the Korean Peninsula.

France had better stop wasting its energies in the Asia-Pacific region with insufficient national power and set right its home situation of serious disorder due to the social discord.

If it continues to run amuck without discretion in the Korean Peninsula, the biggest hotspot, as now, it will find itself in an undesirable situation.

France should not go berserk with irresponsible remarks and reckless military acts, far from affirmatively contributing to defusing the touch-and-go situation created due to the reckless military moves of the U.S. and the south Korean warlike forces.
