Uriminzokkiri, the government-run website of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), on Thursday criticized South Korea's move of calling it an enemy.

South Korea labeled the DPRK government and its military an "enemy" in its latest defense white paper released Thursday. The DPRK website said the move was an "intolerable challenge and serious provocation."

According to Uriminzokkiri, South Korea means to eliminate the DPRK in this act, and the advocating of "fellowmen slaughter" and "war" will surely lead to the consequences of "intensifying confrontation, accelerating tension and even war."

South Korean authorities have to be wholly responsible for the serious consequences, Uriminzokkiri said.

In its defense white paper, South Korea attributed the hostile calling to the DPRK's development of conventional armaments and weapons of mass destruction, its attack on a South Korean warship in March, firing at Yeonpyeong Island, and "making constantly military provocation and seriously threatening the safety of South Korea."
