PYONGYANG, May 11, 10:14 /ITAR-TASS/. North Korea is not linked with unmanned aerial systems found in South Korea, a group of experts of the North Korean state defence committee stated.
The country’s defence committee noted that the drone affair had been opened in Seoul “to deteriorate relations with compatriots in the North,” news agency KCNA reported.
The country’s defence committee noted that South Korean authorities “had undertaken one more act of propagandistic farce” on May 8 stating that three drones found in South Korea in March and April had been launched from North Korea. Meanwhile, the South Korean Defence Ministry has cited technical expertise results.
In this regard, North Korea demanded repeatedly South Korea should “stop backstage manipulations and hold a joint investigation of all circumstances of three unmanned aerial systems found in the South.” “North Korea is not linked with these drones,” the statement runs.
On May 8, Seoul stated the detailed examination of electronic equipment of the drones had found that they acted according to the software programme which “envisaged a surveillance flight over the most important military facilities in South Korea and return of unmanned aerial systems to North Korea.”
On April 11, the South Korean Defence Ministry has made public the same intermediate results of a survey conducted jointly with U.S. specialists.
