On August 8th 2017, The Korean People’s Army [KPA] General Staff issued a statement responding to recent UN Security Council sanctions against North Korea’s recent missile tests and the recent public commentary of senior US policymakers.
According to the KCNA, “The recent simultaneous firings conducted by the long-range artillery force of the Korean People’s Army, rocking the earth and sky, turned the imaginary enemy bases of provocation into a sea of flames in a flash. This was a great eruption of its irrepressible hatred and wrath at the enemy which committed the thrice-cursed act of daring attempt to hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK. It was, at the same time, the beginning of the merciless retaliatory campaign to put the most miserable end to the Park Geun Hye group of south Korea (Remark from Nicolas Levi: please note the lack of capital letter to South Korea. This is common in the North Korean propaganda).
