U.S. Fabrication of "Northern Limit Line" Slammed
Pyongyang, December 28 (KCNA) -- Former State Secretary Kissinger and other former U.S. high-ranking officials recognized the illegality of the "northern limit line" in the West Sea of Korea, the U.S. media disclosed, according to Rodong Sinmun Tuesday.
The U.S. has so far tried to convince the world of the "substantiality" of the line and supported the south Korean puppet regime′s insistence on it, the newspaper commentary says, and goes on:
The "northern limit line" was unilaterally drawn in the West Sea of Korea by Clark, the then UN forces commander, on August 30, 1953 right after the conclusion of the Armistice Agreement. It is a bogus line of no legal ground and validity.
The DPRK and the U.S. are belligerent parties of the Korean War.
It is necessary for the two sides to sit face to face and reach an agreement through discussion to fix an extension of the military demarcation line in the West Sea of Korea.
However, Clark drew the "northern limit line" in the territorial waters of Korea in violation of international law with neither prior consultation nor notification to the DPRK.
This line has been a main cause of many unexpected military conflicts and disputes in the West Sea of Korea since the ceasefire.
The "northern limit line" invented by the U.S. to meet its intention is like a fuse and a time bomb for igniting the second Korean war.
The U.S can never conceal its nature as an arch criminal escalating instability and tension on the Korean Peninsula, sparking off north-south military conflict and increasing the danger of a new war.
The DPRK will never recognize the illegal "northern limit line." The U.S. had better understand it and stop insisting on the "northern limit line".
