North Korea says 'there is no future' for relations with South as tensions rage

North Korean officials said on Wednesday there was “no future” for ties with the South, with them blaming Seoul’s relationship with the US.

Kim Yo-jong, the younger sister of the North Korean tyrant Kim Jong-un, slammed the capitalist nation in a statement made on state media where she vented her fury over Seoul’s falling to stop people sending anti-regime leaflets into the country.

Kim’s statement started by blasting South Korea’s President, Moon Jae-in, marking the 20th anniversary of the first inter-Korean summit.

The North Korean official – whose profile in the country has risen dramatically – even mocked Moon’s clothes during his speech where he wore a tie that had been used by former President Kim Dae-jung during his 2000 meeting with Kim Jong-il.



Head if the United Front Department Jang Kum Chol echoed Yo Jong’s anger, adding there would be “no exchange or cooperation with South Korean authorities in the future”.

The statements were printed in the daily Rodong Sinmun newspaper, which was published next to fawning praise of the North’s decision to destroy the inter-Korean liaison office in Kaesong.

In another regime, mouthpiece said that Kim recently rejected what he called a “preposterous” bid by South Korea to send two envoys to Pyongyang, which was reportedly made to ease rising tensions.

Jang also added, “there is nothing to be implemented and no future for the north-south relations though we have vis-a-vis talks with such a coward, weak and despicable guys.”

He continued: “There will be neither exchange nor cooperation with the South Korean authorities in the future. There will be no word to be exchanged.

“Through the present crisis, we feel fortunate as we have confirmed once again the conclusion is that the enemy is the enemy after all.”



Tensions are now reaching alarming levels with North Korea warning the South to stop “poking their noses” into talks between Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump.

Kwon Jong-gun, the director-general of the department of US affairs at North Korea’s foreign ministry, said the South’s talk about denuclearisation was like “burping after drinking still water”.

He launched into a tirade and continued: “It is really preposterous to hear the balderdash of South Korean authorities who do not have either any qualifications to discuss or the position to poke their noses into the matters between the DPKR and the US.

“And that is to say nothing of nuclear issues – are commenting on the DPRK-US dialogue and interpreting the issue of denuclearisation at their own choice (sic).”
