The head of the north side delegation to the inter-Korean general-level military talks on Nov. 12 officially informed the south side that the Korean People's Army would put into force the crucial measure of strictly restricting and cutting off all the overland passages through the Military Demarcation Line (MDL) from December 1 as the first step to be taken in connection with the evermore undisguised anti-DPRK confrontational racket of the south Korean puppet authorities. [...]Apropå det sista: Nordkoreanska pressmeddelanden har verkligen en tendens att låta som att de försöker efterlikna citerad dialog ur en dålig actionrulle.
The KPA will selectively expel the resident personnel and vehicles of the institutions and enterprises concerned with the authorities in the Kaesong Industrial Zone (KIZ) and Mt. Kumgang tourist area and cut off their overland passages through the MDL.
It will totally suspend the tour of Kaesong by the south side's personnel which has been conducted after their passage through the MDL in the portions on the West Coast under the control of the north and the south.
It will disallow the south side's train service between Pongdong and Munsan and close the MDL which has been opened.It will strictly restrict the passage of all personnel of the south side through the MDL to enter the KIZ and Mt. Kumgang tourist area under the name of visit and economic cooperation, etc.[...]
The prospect of the inter-Korean relations will entirely depend on the attitude of the south Korean authorities, the head of the delegation stated, adding that they would be well advised to pay heed to the KPA's warning that it never makes an empty talk.
I övrigt är detta såklart sorgligt. Men inga slutsatser bör dras än så länge eftersom det fortfarande framför allt, som jag tidigare påpekat, handlar om prat.
