North Korea has leveled accusations against the United States, alleging that US spy aircraft have flown into its airspace. The North Korean government has condemned what it perceives as repeated provocations by the US and issued a warning that it will take action to shoot down such surveillance flights.
The Defense Ministry of North Korea expressed concerns that the provocative military actions conducted by the US on multiple occasions are exacerbating tensions on the Korean peninsula, pushing it closer to the brink of a nuclear conflict.
Pyongyang strongly denounced US plans to deploy strategic nuclear assets in the vicinity of the Korean peninsula, viewing it as a significant threat to regional peace and security.
In April, the US announced its intention to dispatch a nuclear-armed ballistic missile submarine from the US Navy to a South Korean port. This marks the first time such a deployment has taken place since the 1980s.
However, South Korea has dismissed North Korea’s claim of airspace violation as false. The South Korean government stated that the US routinely conducts reconnaissance flights around the Korean peninsula as part of its standard operations.
Tensions between North Korea and the United States continue to simmer, with each side expressing its own concerns and grievances. The situation calls for diplomatic efforts and open dialogue to ease tensions and maintain stability in the region.
