North Korea accused the United States on Saturday of seeking to overthrow the communist country's regime "behind the screen of dialogue," vowing unspecified stern punishment against any attempt to undermine it. Prime Minister Kim Yong Il made the accusation during a ceremony on the eve of North Korea's founding anniversary. "Behind the screen of dialogue, the US is increasing military pressure against us while sticking pertinaciously to psychological warfare to collapse our republic from inside," Kim said, according to footage of the North's Korean Central Television Station seen in Seoul. Kim vowed that North Korea would "sternly punish without even a bit of pardon at all" any attempt to undermine the country.
