S. Korea PR Hopes DPRK Is “Barking Dog, Not Biting Dog,” Would Retaliate

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive

UNITED NATIONS, April 1 -- After a weekend full of threats from North Korea, Monday morning at the UN Inner City Press asked South Korea's Permanent Representative Kim Sook whether to expect a UN Security Council session or action about the threats.

I don't think so,” Kim Sook exclusively told Inner City Press. He said that people in Seoul are not in a panic, that North Korea has “bluffed” before.

Kim Sook acknowledged that the level of threats now is heightened. Let's hope, he said, that DPRK is “a barking dog, not a biting dog.” He paused and said clearly that South Korea “would retaliate.”

Perhaps explaining the lack of request for action by the 15 member Security Council, Kim Sook cited his country's joint military exercises with the United States, which has sent stealth aircraft capable of dropping nuclear weapons. DPRK too, Kim Sook noted, is in a winter military exercise.

Kim Sook had just conferred with Rwanda, which takes over the Security Council presidency for April from the Russian Federation. Watch this site.
