North Korea ready to restore communication channels with Seo …
(MENAFN-Trend News Agency) North Korean leader Kim Jong-un announced his willingness to reestablish communication channels with South Korea in early October, Trend reports citing TASS.
According to South Korean news agency Yonhap, Kim Jong-un made the statement in a speech at the fifth session of the 14th Supreme People’s Congress. According to the agency, the move will be aimed at improving relations and establishing peace on the Korean Peninsula.
North Korea cut communication channels with Seoul on June 9, 2020, in response to the cross-border launch of balloons carrying propaganda leaflets, which Pyongyang viewed as a hostile act violating bilateral peace agreements. Later, Pyongyang also blew up an inter-Korean liaison office in the border town of Kaesong. Communication lines were re-established for some time in late July, but North Korea stopped responding to calls after joint US-Korean exercises began.
