Fresh from the political ripple effect dangling over Egypt, now Libya and Yemen, North Korea has every reason to accuse South Korean activists and lawmakers of flying balloons carrying hundreds of thousands of leaflets critical of North Korea’s government.
North Korea has warned the destruction of South Korean border towns if South Korean government continued to allow activities to incite propaganda leaflets to its citizens.
The warning came one day before the start of annual military drills between South Korea and the United States.
The South Korean Defense Ministry confirmed it had received the North’s warning.
“South Korea’s traitor puppet regime must recognize the seriousness of the prevailing situation and immediately stop anti-(North Korea) psychological warfare,” the Pyongyang’s official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said.
