May 25. (EUROPE PRESS) –
North Korean authorities on Thursday condemned the recent agreement reached by the United States, Japan and South Korea to exchange information on military matters, including data on missile launches and nuclear tests by Pyongyang.
Pyongyang, which has criticized this type of agreement, has warned that this type of measure will only expose these three countries to a “security crisis”, as reported by the North Korean state news agency KCNA.
The criticism comes after the presidents of the United States and South Korea, Joe Biden and Yoon Suk Yeol, respectively, reached an agreement with the Japanese Prime Minister, Fumio Kishida, to deepen cooperation in various areas with the objective to unfreeze, in addition, relations often stagnant due to historical disputes.
In April, Yoon and Biden held a meeting in Washington in which they agreed to form a joint nuclear consultation group to increase the capacity to prepare and react to possible attacks from North Korea and contain the threat from the neighboring country.
However, the North Korean authorities have stressed that they “will not tolerate” maneuvers against the country and “will thwart attempts by hostile forces.”
