Pyongyang, Sept 18 (ANI): The Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea has said that North Korea is fully prepared for a pre-emptive attack against it by South Korea, its official news agency KCNA reported.

According to the report, a committee spokesman said Seoul has recently changed its military policy towards the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) from "defensive strategy" to preparation for a pre-emptive attack on the DPRK if it thought the north was about to launch missiles, nuclear weapons or war.

The official further said that the Republic of Korea (ROK)'s stance was a serious provocation and an extremely dangerous war action against the DPRK.

He said the ROK authorities had continued its confrontation policy by staging a string of military exercises despite domestic and foreign public opinion in favor of dialogue and detente. This showed Seoul "is none other than warmongers focused on nothing but confrontation and war," he said.

"When looking back on history, aggressors launched wars through surprise attacks but they couldn't escape failing and a miserable end," he said, stressing that if the ROK dared to threaten a preemptive attack, "it will get nothing but miserable self-destruction." (ANI)
