N.K. military officials vow war readiness ahead of armistice anniv.

SEOUL, July 26 (Yonhap) — Servicemen from North Korea’s military have vowed their firm readiness to fight with the United States ahead of the 64th anniversary of the armistice that ended the 1950-53 Korean War, Pyongyang’s state media said Wednesday.

Military officers from the army, navy, and air and anti-air force of the Korean People’s Army (KPA) held an oath-taking meeting Tuesday, two days before the anniversary of what the North claims is its victory in the war, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

KPA Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong-so called for “waging more dynamic struggle to add shine to the history of great victory in the war generation after generation and bring July 27 of final victory as early as possible,” the KCNA reported in English.
