Unification Spokesperson’s Statement on
Statement by the ‘Central Court’ of the DPRK
August 31, 2017


 

□ The R.O.K. government strongly condemns North Korea for criticizing our journalists’ ordinary press activities and making absurd claims to sentence ‘capital punishment’ while mentioning their names through a spokesman’s statement of the ‘Central Court’(8.31).

□ As we have clearly stated numerous times, the government stands firm in that we will not step back or compromise on issues regarding national security and the safety of our people.

□ Threats on press activities is a serious violation of the freedom of press and is an interference in our domestic affairs. It also does not help in improving inter-Korean relations, which must be b_ased on respect toward the counterpart. We sternly warn the North to immediately stop all threats targeted at our citizens.

□ The R.O.K. government will take every measures needed to guarantee the safety of our people.
