PressTV: South Korea’s F-35 jet acquisition ‘extremely dangerous action’

North Korea has criticized the South’s acquisition of American F-35 stealth fighter jets as an “extremely dangerous action” that could jeopardize inter-Korean relations.

North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) cited an unnamed policy research director at the Institute for American Studies of North Korea’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs as making the remark in a statement on Thursday.

The official described South Korean authorities as “impudent and pitiful” for “talking loudly about reconciliation and cooperation between the north and the south” while buying more weapons from the United States.

“There is no room for doubt that the delivery of F-35A, which is also called an ‘invisible lethal weapon,’ is aimed at securing military supremacy over the neighboring countries in the region and especially opening a ‘gate’ to invading the north in time of emergency on the Korean peninsula,” he said.
