N Korea threatens to blast psychological war base in S Korea

If Seoul "continues ignoring warnings by the North Korea side", it runs, the Korean People's Army "will destroy the South Korean propaganda base for the purpose of self-defence".

The notification also notes that the psychological war, spearheaded against North Korea, "runs counter to the interests of the Korean nation, seeking to open a new phase in peaceful unification of the homeland through a dialogue and negotiations".

In 2004, the North and the South signed an agreement on mutual refusal from propaganda. However, the South Korean authorities announced the resumption of the psychological war, referring to North Korea's complicity in the scuttling of the South Korean corvette Cheonan in the Yellow Sea late last March. Pyongyang bluntly refuses this complicity. The propaganda campaign stepped up after the artillery engagement between the North and the South in the area of the Yeonpyeong Island on last Nov 23.
