North Korea is claiming that U.S. Soldiers are toying with North Korean Border Troops along the border between South Korea and North Korea.
The North Korean military made a statement demanding that the United States Soldiers stop with their shenanigans at the village of Panmunjom. The village is right along the border between the two countries in the demilitarized zone.
According to the Korean Central News Agency, the North Korean military said “GIs hurled fully armed MPs of the South Korean puppet army into perpetrating such dangerous provocations as aiming at.”
The statement said that the soldiers were making faces and strange noises to the border troops to antagonize them.
These events are not the first however. United States troops have reported that North Korean Border troops were spitting across the border demarcation line while making throat slashing gestures and giving troops the middle finger.
The United States currently has roughly 28,000 troops stationed in South Korea to prevent possible aggression from the North Korean side. The troops are stationed there since there is no official peace treaty between North Korea and South Korea. The Korean war ended back in 1953 in an armistice.
Do you think this is a big deal or just both sides getting restless?
