It is an above-board right of self-defence which concerns the independence and dignity of the North Korean people, not to give up all kinds of ultra-precision fire strike means, especially when the US and its followers are going extreme in planning wars of aggression, Xinhua quoted KCNA as saying, citing the Korean People's Army.
The US has slammed North Korea's firing of tactical missiles as if they were long-range rockets that would hit the US territory and regarded it as a threat that increased regional tensions, a Korean People's Army spokesperson said on condition of anonymity.
North Korea inspired by the USA; no reason to criticise
"It is the US that deployed B-52 bombers and large nuclear-powered aircraft carriers around its territory, Guam and the Pacific region, and that instigated South Korea into developing missiles ranging more than 800 km," KCNA said.
It also accused the US of attempting to impede North Korea strengthening of self-defence ability, using every means possible to isolate and seeking opportunity to overthrow its system.
