PYONGYANG, September 30 (Itar-Tass) - The army and people of North Korea will “mercilessly punish those who insult the senior leadership and social system of the People’s Republic (DPRK),” says a statement made on Monday by a spokesman of the DPRK Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea.
The committee reacted to South Korea’s propaganda campaign that emphasised the instability and “the possible collapse of the North regime.” According to the statement, Pyongyang is indignant at reports by the Yonhap news agency and other conservative media of South Korea that “seek to foster a negative image of North Korea, referring to critical assessments of the DPRK situation made by a number of foreign media and experts.” The committee warned that “the regime which dares run amuck to hurt the dignity and social system in the DPRK and those who take part in such acts, be they journalist, scholar, expert and news announcer, should clearly know that they will have to pay dear prices for their acts.” “The army and people of the DPRK will never tolerate but mercilessly punish those who slander even a bit the dignity of the supreme leadership and the social system of the DPRK,” the statement says.
It also notes that the spread of the “rubbish” presaging the fall of the North’s regime are “the futile efforts of those who are trying to undermine the DPRK prestige against the background of the republic’s impressive successes achieved under the leadership of Kim Jong Un and inspiring optimism in the Korean people.” The committee spokesman named among the successes the launches of satellites in the DPRK. “Satellites lifted off in succession and epoch-making miracles were wrought and hurrahs for the Workers’ Party of Korea and socialism reverberate far and wide amid high civilization under socialism thanks to popular policies, making the enemies shudder,” the spokesperson said.
