North Korea withdraws from South Korean liaison office


UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — North Korea pulled out of a liaison office with South Korea, located just north of their common border, on Friday in a setback to South Korean President Mon Jie-n’s efforts to end hostilities following a failed summit between Pyongyang and Washington.

South Korea’s Deputy Minister of Unity Chun Hai-sung said in a press statement that North Korea made the decision during a weekly meeting with the southern part on Friday morning, saying it had come “on higher-level instructions.”
