The spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) said that the country will response with devastating blow to any interception of the country's satellite launch, DPRK’s official news agency KCNA reported.

Recently Republic of Korea (ROK) claimed it will track and intercept the launch of Kwangmyongsong-3 satellite. It will work together with the United States to track the satellite using advanced monitoring measures and Aegis destroyers in order to provoke new military conflicts, said the spokesman.

Some military activists in ROK threatened to attack Pyongyang, pushing the Peninsula's situation to the edge of war, the spokesman said.

The interception of the country's satellite launch constitutes an act of war and DPRK’s military will not tolerate any military provocation. Any attempt to invade the airspace of Pyongyang will lead to tremendous catastrophe, said the spokesman.

The DPRK missle will make good target practice for South Korea or Japan.

DPRK issues threats of war and "tremendous catastrophe" every day. Go ahead, make my day

Are South Korea & Japan banned from launching satellites? If not, the West"s opposition to DPRK"s satellite launch is making a mountain out of a molehill.

DPRK should be right this time for reaction if in fact, its satellite launch. Any nation with the knowledge to develop one, whether as bad as amateu one that goes up and down to one that can go around the world should have the right to launch. This world does not belong to one or two nations, it belong to all nations.

I would say that the DPRK should ready itself then. Their are already 3 nations ready to dispose of this rocket before it enters their airspace. If the DPRK is stupid enough to do this the let it be.
