North Korea presented an ultimatum to South Korea

34
The High Command of the Korean People’s Army presented an ultimatum to South Korea. This was marked “urgently” by the Central Telegraph Agency of Korea (CTC) today.


According to ITAR-TASS, the statement says that if the South Korean authorities want to establish a dialogue, then Seoul "must apologize for actions that offend the dignity of the DPRK."

In North Korea, today they celebrate the main national holiday - the Day of the Sun, or Kim Il Sung's birthday. His grandson Kim Jong-un for the first time in two weeks appeared in public and accepted a military parade. This year, however, is more modest than usual: most of the equipment is on alert. Earlier, Pyongyang announced its intention to launch a ballistic missile.

In March, 2013, the UN Security Council approved a resolution tightening sanctions against the DPRK in connection with the third nuclear test in February. This was perceived in Pyongyang as a signal for the beginning of a series of military threats against the United States and South Korea. At the same time, the DPRK warned that the US military bases in South Korea and Japan, as well as on the island of Guam, are within the reach of North Korean missiles.

    In North Korea today is celebrated the main national holiday - Sun Day, or Kim Il Sung's birthday

    Despite the aggravation of the situation on the Korean Peninsula, the DPRK celebrates the main national holiday on April 15 - the birthday of Kim Il Sung, the founder and first president of the republic. In the DPRK capital, located far from the demilitarized zone and the coast of the Sea of ​​Japan, where, according to Western media, there are mobile installations with ballistic missiles ready for launch, a calm situation is maintained. Despite the proposal of the DPRK Foreign Ministry to foreign agencies to consider the issue of evacuation due to the threat of conflict on the Korean Peninsula, the staff of diplomatic missions and international humanitarian agencies remain in their places.

    According to ITAR-TASS, in the morning the inhabitants of North Korea went to Kimsusan Palace, where the tombs of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il are located. The decision of the deputies notes that all Koreans "are obliged to consider this magnificent building as a sacred temple and a symbol of dignity and pride of the whole nation."
    On April 15, the North Korean leader visited the Kumsusan Palace, where he honored the memory of his grandfather - the founder and first president of the DPRK, as well as his father - Kim Jong Il. In this memorial complex are the tombs of two generalissimo, which in the minds of Koreans remain eternally alive.

    The city has a festive atmosphere. Since morning residents of the capital who received two days off, went to the statues of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, installed on the Mansu hill in the center of Pyongyang. Men in formal suits and women in beautiful national costumes lay flowers at the foot of the giant monument.

    Taking advantage of the fact that the weather was warm in the country, many went to sports fields or went to the banks of the Tedrongan River, where they usually arrange family picnics. In Pyongyang and other cities of the country, exhibitions are open devoted to the life and work of Kim Il Sung, the author of the famous ideas of Juche. A conference of the leaders of foreign Societies on the study of this ideology was held in the capital.

    There are no signs of tension in the city. As usual, foreign diplomatic missions and representations of international humanitarian organizations function.

      Indeed, this year Kim rightfully earned the first place in the MISTER TREPLO rating. He sends ultimatums, but doesn’t refuse humanitarian aid from South Korea.
      How many times has the whole world heard from North Korea: if they adopt a resolution, then we will consider it an announcement by warriors. We will answer harshly, Seoul will burn, drown in a sea of ​​fire .... and so on and so forth, so on and so forth. III ..... what ??? One word is yap!

      To demand the impossible is just what is needed to exclude the possibility of reconciliation. Kim could just as well demand world peace from staff members. He needs this rhetoric, but for what it will be seen later.

      Good afternoon! Kind, because it’s definitely not firing, and it’s not an ultimatum, but the 100500th Korean warning: “DPRK is ready to start a dialogue after the apology of South Korea
      The High Command of the Korean People’s Army issued an ultimatum to South Korea, demanding that it abandon hostile activities against Pyongyang.
      The DPRK authorities are ready to start a dialogue with neighbors, but only after they apologize "for actions that offend the DPRK’s merits," the DPRK’s Telegraph Agency (CTC) told the Central.
      In North Korea, April 15 is the main national holiday - the day of the Sun, or the birthday of Kim Il Sung. His grandson Kim Jong-un on this day specially appeared in public after a two-week absence and took a military parade, which was usually more modest, because the bulk of the equipment is on combat duty.
      Recall that at least two ballistic missiles were delivered to the DPRK east coast. Earlier, the North Korean authorities promised to launch a rocket in the direction of Japan on the birthday of Kim Il Sung on April 15, but, apparently, there will not be a launch.

        In the morning news, while driving in a car, I heard that Lavrov expressed confidence that there would be no war between the two Koreas. We will believe Lavrov because he probably knows.
        By the way, for some reason, there is not much information in the media about the visit of Karimov (who was already buried like Assad) to Moscow and negotiations with Putin. Some "knowledgeable"
        They believe that the purpose of this visit was to represent Karimov’s successor, First Deputy Prime Minister Rustam Azimov, in Moscow.

          Alexander, this is not the first time I have been writing materials about the DPRK, they are not suicides, although they live extravagantly, they are simply stifled by the blockade, although they have to hell with what to trade, starting from rare-earth metals and ending with products of heavy and light industry. The situation was like in the 20s in Soviet Russia. The Soviet Union traded with them, and under the EBN, the Americans of Russia banned and we still play into their hands. And the current surge in aggressiveness is well understood by the DPRK how any US maneuvers near the border can end countries, that is, they threaten nuclear weapons and missiles. Before reaching parity with the United States, it behaved the same way (remember the notorious "Kuzkin mother") They need to be supported, not portrayed as psychos. Alexander hi

      The whole question is, when China gets tired of it, how will it behave? Will he let down this petty mongrel of the DPRK to another one, the South Caucasus and will "warm up" his hands in a local conflict? At the same time he will train his fighters in a real mess. For a long time, China did not have a small victorious war. soldier

    The High Command of the Korean People’s Army has issued an ultimatum to South Korea:
    if the South Korean authorities want to establish a dialogue, then Seoul "must apologize for actions that offend the dignity of the DPRK.

    By definition, an ultimatum is a requirement related to limiting the time given for its execution, as well as the threat of serious consequences if it is not fulfilled. Ultimatums sometimes precede a declaration of war. Those. this should be understood as follows: they say, if you do not apologize, then we will be banged, and you will get a war. And the words about establishing a dialogue are like a "prize" in case of consent. The proposed "carrot" does not look appetizing, and the entered "club" cannot scare someone who is armed with something more serious. Nevertheless, Comrade Eun decided to replay the scenario of nuclear blackmail, which Khrushchev had once succeeded in. But then both opposing sides knew to what extent they could go and where to stop. As if young Eun did not play too steep and did not slip the point of no return ...

      You reminded me of a joke from the Saratov life. Once in our city the higher school of the Ministry of Internal Affairs burned down. The next day, one of the cadets returned from vacation, looked thoughtfully at the little heads and asked the old man passing by:
      - Grandfather, where is my school?
      - Burned, sweetheart, cleaned up.
      - Grandfather, where is my school?
      “Burned, son, don't you see?”
      - Grandfather, where is my school?
      - Oh, son, do not worry so.

    Of course, Eun yap and mudazvon. Intoxicated by unchallenged authority and divine veneration. Nobody knows how this will end. the thing is, in general, that S. Korea has no chance of winning (and they understand this) as in the case of using nuclear weapons they will simply be erased. I think the leadership of S. Korea understands this, but this tension (sort of like being controlled) is one erroneous shots (through a fanatics drugged by propaganda, some self-propelled guns) can turn into a full-fledged conflict and then look for who show-offs just threw and who, according to the concepts, would be responsible for it.

    here's another thing ...
    an American helicopter crashed on the border between North Korea and South Korea in Chorvon County, Agence France-Presse reports citing a spokesman for the South Korean Ministry of Defense. According to unofficial data, the helicopter was a UH-60 Black Hawk model.

    Officially, no casualties were reported. The Renhab agency, citing rescuers, reports that 12 people on board the helicopter survived.

    The causes of the incident are unknown. It is noted that the helicopter crashed during the joint exercises of the USA and South Korea, which take place against the background of aggravation of relations between the republics. As previously reported, 56 thousand Korean soldiers and 30 thousand Americans are taking part in the exercises.

    On April 15, the DPRK presented an ultimatum to its southern neighbors, promising to deliver an unexpected blow to them if they did not stop hostile activities. The statement came after an action took place in South Korea, during which portraits of North Korean leaders were burnt.

    Relations between North and South Korea escalated after North Korea launched a satellite rocket into space at the end of 2012, and then - in February 2013 - conducted a successful test of nuclear weapons. For this, the DPRK criticized the world community, including the United States.
