PYONGYANG, June 9. /TASS/. North Korea has accused South Korea of violating its airspace and the disputed maritime border in the Yellow Sea, the Korean Central News Agency reported on Thursday.
It said "South Korean drones were on Tuesday barraging over the so-called Northern Limit Line and three times violated the airspace of the DPRK".
It said that on the same day a military boat and four fishing vessels of South Korea violated the maritime border "with an aim of espionage". The news agency said similar provocative moves at the disputed maritime border "have been registered on a daily basis this month".
It also accused South Korea of stepping up propaganda broadcasts to North Korea.
According to the news report, Pyongyang accuses Seoul of "intentionally taking action capable of triggering a war (on the Korean peninsula)" and pledges resolute retaliatory moves. KCNA maintains that South Korea is trying to defend the legitimacy of the Northern Limit Line, drawn in haste at the end of the 1950-1953 Korean War by the UN Command where American military played the main role at the time.
North Korea has never recognized this sea border and insists that it be moved to the south, to the Military Demarcation Line dividing the Korean peninsula into two parts.
The United States and South Korea disregard these demands from Pyongyang, and the disputed maritime border remains a constant source of tension.
