It should be noted that the incident occurred on August 17 in an area located 520 km from the port of Wonsan. The US Air Force aircraft entered the DPRK economic zone at a depth of about 14 km.
After the DPRK planes were lifted into the air, the US plane left the area.
The statement of the General Staff of the EPC stressed the willingness “to take any measure to protect the sovereignty of the republic.”
Earlier, the head of the DPRK Defense Ministry, Kang Sun Nam, called the war on the peninsula “inevitable.” “Nuclear war mania by the United States and the ROK puppets is turning the Korean Peninsula and Northeast Asia into a new hotbed of nuclear war,” he stressed.
