N. Korea warns against further psychological warfare near border

North Korea on Saturday warned that it will not tolerate any form of "psychological warfare," citing specifically a new large electronic display being set up by South Korea near the border.

The South's move to set up the display is aimed at driving an "extreme confrontation" with the North into "direct military conflict," the Korean People's Army said in an article carried by the North's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

Seoul has been installing a 10 meters by 18 meters electronic display in Cheorwon, Gangwon Province, in the demilitarized zone (DMZ) along the Military Demarcation Line (MDL) since Oct. 27, the KCNA report said.

Pyongyang criticized the installation, saying the "reckless anti-DPRK psychological warfare is pushing the tense situation in the areas along the MDL to an unpredictable phase."

The DPRK stands for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the North's official name.
