All very recent comments from each countries 'government' run news. Here is an article from the world's most tightly controlled media.
"The DPRK will react to Japan's move to apply economic sanctions against the DPRK with tough retaliatory measures
. Rodong Sinmun Friday warns
this in a signed commentary assailing Japan for contemplating applying economic sanctions against the DPRK single-handed, independent of the United
The Japanese reactionaries, much upset by the world public paying no heed to the so-called "abduction issue", are working hard to build up public
opinion favorable for them and "single-handed application of economic sanctions" is part of their new anti-DPRK campaign, the commentary observes,
Japan's loudmouthed "single-handed application of economic sanctions" is aimed at keeping the world opinion on the "abduction issue" from waning
in a bid to pressurize the DPRK and wrest any concession from the latter.
The DPRK clearly stated more than once that it would regard any sanctions against it as a declaration of war
. Nevertheless, the Japanese
reactionaries are contemplating the application of economic sanctions against the DPRK.
This is a deliberate and premeditated provocative move to scrap the DPRK-Japan Pyongyang Declaration and drive the confrontation between the two
countries to a dangerous phase of clash.
The hostile relations between the two countries are now inching close to the dangerous phase of explosion. Under this situation the DPRK is left with
no option but to take a decisive counter- measure
The army and the people of the DPRK value its sovereignty as their life and soul and will never allow anyone to infringe upon it
Japan is 1 of only 3 'life-support machines' that keep NK 'alive' the other 2 are China and South Korea. If even 1 of them stopped 'working', NK
may very well 'die'.
