North Korea said Sunday it is seeking to increase its military deterrent to cope with US moves, amid increasing signs that the country is preparing to test a long-range missile. However, there was no mention of a missile in a report from North Korea's state media on a national meeting marking the anniversary of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il starting work in the country's communist party. "The (North) Korean army and people will do their best to increase the military deterrent with sharp vigilance to cope with the moves of the US, which is hell-bent on provocations for war of aggression on the DPRK, resorting to its anti-DPRK policy, and its followers Japan and other bellicose forces," the report from the Korean Central News Agency said, referring to the North by the initials for its official name.
