The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Friday denounced South Korea's arms buildup as proof for its "preemptive attack" against the DPRK, the official news agency KCNA reported.

The Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland of the DPRK accused South Korea of building up arms by intending to introduce 21 F-15K fighters and hundreds of the latest air-to-ground cruise missiles, according to the KCNA.

South Korea also decided to introduce fifth-generation fighter aircraft equipped with Stealth function and technology related to the establishment of Patriot missile defense system, the KCNA quoted the secretariat as saying.

It said "this proved that their scenario for a 'preemptive attack' is being put into practice as it is an intolerable treacherous act of pushing the situation on the Korean Peninsula to a dangerous phase of war and wrecking peace."

The DPRK will strongly counter the arms buildup "with the building of a more powerful war deterrent," it added.
