(MENAFN) North Korea on Monday criticized the NATO chief’s visit to South Korea and Japan as Jens Stoltenberg called for Seoul to “step up” army support for Ukraine.
“The high-ranking chief of the military organization which turned Ukraine into a theatre of proxy war is flying into the Asia-Pacific region of the eastern hemisphere across the sea and land, which is not even part of its operational sphere. This fact itself gives rise to concern,” according to researcher Kim Tong Myong in state-run KCNA (Korean Central News Agency) on Monday.
The Pyongyang-based news organization identified Kim as an investigator at the Society for International Politics Study in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea – the official name of North Korea.
“Is the trip of the secretary general of NATO aimed to instigate the creation of the Asian version of NATO?" Kim questioned.
