DPRK (North Korea) slams South Korea for missile launch

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Thursday slammed South Korea for launching a ballistic missile, which it claimed was targeting the North.

Pyongyang also criticized South Korean President Park Geun-hye for her "confrontation against fellow countrymen."

"This was part of acts of treachery as it was aimed to hurt the fellow countrymen with arms provided by outside forces," a spokesman for the Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army said in a statement issued by the state KCNA news agency.

The statement said the situation proves that the DPRK's effort to beef up defense along with economic development is "wise and just."

"The DPRK's nuclear deterrence and powerful strategic rockets are by no means ones targeting the southern half of Korea where fellow countrymen live," it said.

South Korea announced Wednesday that the military test-fired a ballistic missile with a range of at least 500 km that covers all areas of the Korean Peninsula and Park visited the Anheung firing range in southwestern South Korea.

The missile launch came after the DPRK recently announced its capability of miniaturizing nuclear warheads.
