PYONGYANG, June 28. /TASS/. North Korea’s Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland (CPRF) says the policies of Seoul are responsible for the growing tension in the Korean Peninsula. The organisation, which supervises in Pyongyang the inter-Korean relations, reacted to South Korea’s announced sanctions against Taiwan companies suspected of arms sales with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK).
In the Committee’s statement, published on Sunday, the organisation criticises South Korea’s President Park Geun-hye as she was unwilling to respond to Pyongyang’s peace initiatives and developed further the military cooperation with the United States and Japan under the pretext of a "nuclear threat from the North" and "violated human rights" in the DPRK.
These activities of Park Geun-hye and her allies, the statement reads, "damage greatly the relations between the North and the South and develop further the tension in the Korean Penisula."
On Friday, South Korea announced financial sanctions against six Taiwan companies and individuals suspected of arms sales with the DPRK. South Korea followed the U.S. sanctions against those companies and individuals and forwarded respective information to its allies and to international organisations, the republic’s foreign ministry said.
