PYONGYANG, June 13 (Itar-Tass) - North Korea has laid responsibility for wrecking talks, which were scheduled to take place in Seoul on June 12, on South Korea, the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea said in a statement on Thursday.
“While the DPRK delegation was preparing to depart South Korea informed the North that its delegation will be led by the deputy minister instead of the minister,” the statement says.
Pyongyang believes that such decision “proves the high degree of disregard in the history of the inter-Korean dialogue”, the statement stresses.
