PYONGYANG, August 5 (Itar-Tass) - The supply of 260 US air-to-air missiles to South Korea “may upset the military balance on the Korean peninsula,” the North Korean central Nodong Shinmun newspaper writes on Monday.
The newspaper commented on reports saying the Pentagon had already notified the US Congress about a possible deal estimated at $452 million.
According to the newspaper, Pentagon’s plans testify “to an aggressive nature of the Asian policy of the United States which has turned South Korea into a major American nuclear base in the Far East”. “The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is the main target of U.S. aggressive schemes,” the official newspaper of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea stressed.
According to regional news agencies, South Korea has placed an order with the United States for the supply of 260 AIM-120C-7 AMRAAM air-to-air missiles. According to media reports, major US company Raytheon will execute the order, and the missiles are to be supplied no later than in 2015.
