NATO on Thursday dismissed media reports that a NATO air strike damaged the embassy of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) in Tripoli.

"It has been alleged that NATO attacked the embassy; this is simply not true. In fact, the embassy is located some 500 meters from the target we struck," the alliance said in a statement.

According to the statement, NATO attacked a command and control bunker complex in downtown Tripoli last night.

"While we are aware of media reports that there was damage to the North Korean embassy, we have no knowledge of possible collateral damage," it said.

"Our strikes are precise and while the possibility of collateral damage will always exist, we go to great lengths to reduce such possibilities," it concluded.
