North Korea says Pelosi fanned flames of the Korean conflict

Seoul, Aug 6 (EFE).- North Korea Saturday alleged that United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had fanned the flames of the Korean conflict by visiting a border area between the South and North after her groundbreaking trip to Taiwan.

“The US is just adding fuel to the fire,” North Korean foreign ministry spokesperson Jo Yong Sam said in a statement.

During her visit to South Korea, Pelosi visited the truce village of Panmunjom, located along the heavily armed border between South and North Korea.

According to the official Korea Central News Agency, the spokesperson said Pelosi’s visit to Panmunjom was part of “the hostile policy of the current US administration towards” North Korea.

“It would be a fatal mistake for her to think that she can go scot-free in the Korean peninsula,” Jo said.

“The US will have to pay dearly for all the sources of trouble spawned by her (Pelosi) wherever she went.”

The spokesperson noted that “the sinister scheme of the US to escalate the already-tense situation in the Korean peninsula” lurked behind the speaker’s controversial visit.

Pelosi pushed “the current ruling South Korean conservative forces into confrontation with the fellow countrymen in the North,” said Jo.

He said the US used the visit as an “excuse for justifying its anachronistic hostile policy toward (North Korea) and reckless arms buildup.”

“Pelosi, the worst destroyer of international peace and stability, had incited the atmosphere of confrontation with Russia during her visit to Ukraine in April, and incurred the wrath of the Chinese people for her recent junket to Taiwan.”

Pelosi enraged China as well after a controversial stop in Taiwan on Wednesday.

The visit has escalated military tension across Taiwan Strait as China considers Taiwan part of Chinese territory and objects to visit by high-profile foreign leaders. EFE
