DPRK warns Trump against implementing sea blockade

By staff

Washington, D.C. – According to a Dec. 14 report from the Korea Central News Agency, a spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) denounced talk from the figures in the Trump administration on implementing a sea blockade directed at north Korea.

According to the statement, “The gang of Trump, being terrified by our accomplishment of the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force, is driving the situation on the Korean peninsula more and more close to the brink of war, acting recklessly without any sense of reason.”

The statement concluded, “A naval blockade is an act of wanton violation of the sovereignty and dignity of an independent state and an act of war of aggression which cannot be tolerated.”

Since the conclusion of the Korean war, the U.S. has carried out a military occupation of the southern part of the Korean peninsula while the socialist north, the DPRK, has actively worked to reunify the country.
