N. Korea slams joint US, S. Korea, Japan agreement

Pyongyang criticized the recent United States, South Korea and Japan agreement on intensifying military cooperation as a means to introduce a US agenda for an Asian Nato, the North Korean foreign ministry spokesman told state media on Sunday.

"The reality clearly shows that the real purpose of the US spreading the rumor about 'threat from North Korea' is to provide an excuse for attaining military supremacy over the Asia-Pacific region," he noted.

The North Korean representative also stated that the emerging situation urgently "calls for a building up of the country's defenses to actively cope with the rapid aggravation of the security environment."
