All national dailies wrote on Sunday that North Korea’s state-run Korean Central News Agency reported on Saturday that a Foreign Ministry spokesperson issued a statement demanding that Japan pay compensation for “sinking its vessel” which was “in its territorial waters” and take measures to prevent a recurrence of a collision between a Fisheries Agency patrol ship and one of its trawlers. The statement added that “there will be undesirable consequences” if such an incident happens again.
