The military force of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) will attack Japan's interceptor weapons and other key objects if Japan intercepts DPRK's satellite launch, the official KCNA news agency cited the General Staff as saying Thursday.

If Japan takes "any slight move" to intercept the DPRK's satellite, the country's army will make a "prompt just retaliatory strike at it," said a statement issued by the General Staff of the Korean People's Army (KPA).

The statement reiterated that the exploration of the space for peaceful purpose is a legitimate right of a sovereignty country and the DPRK will not allow any interference from anyone to its launch. It also warned the United States to withdraw its missile guided destroyers, least suffering losses. And South Korea should "refrain from disturbing the launch."

Japan Ground Self-Defense Force personnel stand around PAC-3, land-to-air missile, set up at a base amid the Democratic People's Republic of Korea's planned rocket launch in Akita, northern Japan, Tuesday, March 31, 2009. Batteries of PAC-3 land-to-air missile interceptors have been sent to two northern prefectures that the Democratic People's Republic of Korea's rocket is expected to fly over

The DPRK has declared it will launch a communication satellite sometime between April 4 and 8. Japan ordered its military force to intercept debris of the DPRK's rocket, in case the test-firing failed and fell on Japanese territory.
