North Korea reacted on Monday, the US allowing South Korea to build more powerful missiles was an example of the US's hostile policy against the North, it could lead to an ‘acute and instable situation’ on the Korean Peninsula.
It's North Korea's first response to the May 21 summit between the leaders of the United States and South Korea, during which the U.S. Ended decades-long restrictions that capped South Korea's missile development and allowed its ally to develop weapons with unlimited ranges.
The accusation of US policy being hostile to North Korea matters because it said it won't return to talks and would enlarge its nuclear arsenal as long as US hostility persists. But the latest statement was still attributed to an individual commentator, not a government body, suggesting North Korea may still want to leave room for potential diplomacy with the Biden administration.
The US is mistaken, however. It is a serious blunder for it to pressurize (North Korea) by creating asymmetric imbalance in and around the Korean Peninsula as this may lead to the acute and instable situation on the Korean Peninsula now technically at war. The termination step is a stark reminder of the US hostile policy toward (North Korea) and its shameful double-dealing, said Kim Myong Chol, an international affairs critic.
