North Korean state media slams South for ‘deceitfully’ enhancing missile power

North Korea's Meari says that new missile guidelines and an increased military budget go against Seoul's "peace" goals

North Korean state media slammed South Korea for allegedly enhancing its military power while pursuing "dialogue and peace," calling Seoul "deceitful" in its outward-facing propaganda website Meari on Sunday.

The state-run Meari outlet alleged that the South is showing its "evil intentions" by revising the U.S.-ROK missile guidelines last week, which now allow Seoul to develop solid-fuel space launch vehicles in the future.
