The DPRK Foreign Ministry issued a spokesman’s statement on April 10 (Monday) commenting on the presence of the Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group near the Korean Peninsula.   According to KCNA, the Foreign Ministry said:

It was disclosed that the US dispatched Carl Vinson nuclear carrier task group to waters off the peninsula all of a sudden.

This goes to prove that the US reckless moves for invading the DPRK have reached a serious phase of its scenario.

If the US dares opt for a military action, crying out for “preemptive attack” and “removal of the headquarters”, the DPRK is ready to react to any mode of war desired by the US.

The prevailing grave situation proves once again that the DPRK was entirely just when it increased in every way its military capabilities for self-defense and preemptive attack with a nuclear force as a pivot.

The Trump administration is foolish enough to deploy one strategic striking means after another in south Korea, trumpeting about “peace by force of arms,”  but the DPRK remains unfazed.

We never beg for peace but we will take the toughest counteraction against the provocateurs in order to defend ourselves by powerful force of arms and keep to the road chosen by ourselves.

We will hold the US wholly accountable for the catastrophic consequences to be entailed by its outrageous actions.
