North Korea against South Korean naval base
North Korea has spoken against building a naval base on the South Korean island of Chechudo.
The declaration of the North Korean Committee for a Peaceful Reunion of the Motherland reads that building a large military facility in that place is “the puppet regime’s criminal act aimed against North Korea with the aim of facilitating US aggression”.
The Committee believes that building a naval base in that region will “disturb stability on the Korean Peninsula and in the entire North-East Asia.”
It is planned to deploy up to 20 warships at the base by 2014.
