DPRK media statements about dialogue with the US.

SEOUL, Feb. 17 (Yonhap) -- North Korean media said Saturday it is "not thirsty" for talks with the United States, vilifying Vice President Mike Pence who showed skepticism toward an inter-Korean thaw during his visit to the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

"To say the obvious, we, who have done everything that needs to be done and own everything, are not thirsty for dialogue with the U.S. It is the U.S who will feel anxious as time goes by," read a commentary by an individual contributor to the Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the North's ruling Workers' Party.

The writer denounced Pence for having an antagonistic attitude toward the North while visiting South Korea last week leading the U.S. delegation to the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

"One of the major media interests during the Winter Olympics was whether there would be contact or talks between North Korea and the U.S. ... It is only because (President Donald) Trump and his gang made a big fuss and counted their chickens before they even hatched."

   "The U.S. should keep in mind that we are fully ready for every move they make, be it sanctions, military options or sly schemes," it read.

It threatened to punish the U.S. for Pence visiting the memorial hall of the South Korean Navy ship Cheonan, which was torpedoed by the North in 2010, and meeting with North Korean defectors.

"(Mike Pence) didn't dare look at our high-level delegation. How could he possibly face our cheerful delegation?" it argued.

Pence arrived in South Korea on Feb. 8 for a three-day visit. He was accompanied by the father of Otto Warmbier, the U.S. college student who was detained in North Korea and died shortly after being sent home in a coma last year.

The next day, Pence avoided North Korean titular head of state Kim Young-nam at a reception dinner hosted by South Korean President Moon Jae-in. The vice president came to the event late and stayed for only a few minutes before heading off for a dinner with U.S. athletes.

He left the country last Saturday.

This might be the Rodong article it is referring to, but maybe not. Both mention Pence a lot (Google translates it as "Fence") with the typical DPRK flare and both dated as Feb 17th.

Needs more "capitalist running dogs" to really have that DPRK vibe.

"Greet warmly, but carry a big stick" seems to be South Korea's attitude:

 

 

Seoul to order new PAC-3 interceptors to counter North Korea

 

 

SEOUL, South Korea —South Korea plans to give an order of new Patriot Advanced Capability-3 missiles as part of an ongoing effort to defend against North Korea’s ballistic missile threat.

 

The buy of PAC-3 Missile Segment Enhancement built by Lockheed Martin was approved Feb. 7 by the Defense Acquisition Program Administration’s executive committee, chaired by the Ministry of National Defense. The latest contract, through the Foreign Military Sales program, is valued at around $53 million, according to the DAPA, with the number of PAC-3 MSE interceptors for delivery undisclosed.

 

“This procurement plan is aimed at acquiring more PAC-3 precision-guided missiles to respond to North Korea’s ballistic missile threat in a more effective way,” DAPA spokesman Kang Seok-hwan said. “The contract is expected to be made in the second half of the year for the delivery after 2020.”

 

In 2015, South Korea ordered PAC-3 interceptors and launcher modification kits to help upgrade its used PAC-2 systems bought from Germany. The upgraded systems are scheduled to be deployed near the Seoul metropolitan area in the coming months.

 

The deployment of PAC-3 MSE is expected to help enhance the South Korean military’s multi-layered shield of PAC-3 interceptors, along with the US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system that was successfully deployed in the southern region of South Korea last year, according to analysts. The PAC-3 MSE uses a two-pulse solid rocket motor that increases altitude and range to defend against evolving threats.

 

“The PAC-3 MSE can hit an incoming missile flying at an altitude of 40 kilometers, two times higher than the normal PAC-3 interceptor,” said Kim Dae-young, a research fellow of Korea Research Institute for National Strategy, a private security think tank based in Seoul. “That means PAC-3 MSE could detect and take down an incoming North Korean missile first and the PAC-3 could try the next as part of a layered missile defense operation.”
