The visit of Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to the demilitarized zone on the border of the DPRK and South Korea is another manifestation of Washington's hostile policy, said Cho Yong Sam, director of the press and information department of the DPRK Foreign Ministry.
“Pelosi, along with the South Korean authorities, spoke about “strong expanded deterrents” in response to the “threat from North Korea” and even visited the Panmunjom Joint Security Zone. This testifies to the hostile policy of the current American administration towards the DPRK,— said the diplomat.
According to him, Pelosi— “the worst destroyer of peace and stability on the planet.” “The US will have to pay for the trouble it has caused where it has been,” — Jo Young Sam concluded.
Pelosi visited the DMZ between North and South Korea as part of her Asian tour on August 3. The area, also known as the joint security zone, is jointly controlled by the US-led UN command and North Korea.
Pelosi also planned to visit the village of Phanmunjom, where a ceasefire was signed in 1953 that ended the Korean War. The visit to this zone was supposed to be a landmark event, but neither a photo of the politician in Panmunjom, nor a quote from her speech to the US military has appeared in the media. In addition, after the escalation in Taiwan, Pelosi was not personally received by South Korean President Yoon Seok-yeol.
Pelosi flew to Taiwan, despite all the warnings from Beijing about the consequences of this step. After her plane landed in Taipei, Chinese troops began a shooting exercise off the coast of Taiwan, and also announced large-scale exercises around the entire island from August 4 to 7.
