North Korea demands South to receive representatives
N Korea: The Peopleís Democratic Republic of Korea has
demanded South Korea Saturday to receive a team of its inspectors
unconditionally and present material evidence linking the PDRK with the
sinking of a war ship.
The request was issued by Peopleís Armed Forces Minister Kim
Yong-Chun, in response to Seoulís denial to a request by Pyongyang for a
group of its experts to go to the site of the sinking to verify the
incident took place March 26.
South Korean authorities communicated their denial Friday, a position
Minister Kim considers a pernicious provocation, according to North
Korean News Agency (KCNA).
War ship Cheonan sank March 26 evening in the Korean Western Sea
reportedly due to an explosion. It had a crew of 104 members, of whom 58
were rescued and the rest is reported as dead or missing.
The Minister recalled that since the beginning South Korean authority
linked the North with the incident and officially announced a possible
confrontation, before and after the outcome of the investigation.
