Fresh new development in regards to inter-Korean relations.
The first deputy director of the Propaganda and Agitation Department of North Korea's Workers' Party, Kim Yo-jong, speculated to be the regime's number two says Pyeongyang will its scrap its military agreement with Seoul if the South takes no action against the flying of anti-regime leaflets.
The Rodong Sinmun, the regime's state-run newspaper, delivered Kim's discomfort over the anti-North Korea leaflets dispersed by some defector-activist groups in the South late last month saying that South Korean authorities will be forced to pay the price if they let the situation go on.
She reportedly said that, if necessary, the North is willing to pull down the once-jointly-run Kaesong industrial complex, or their liaison office, and rip up the military agreement signed by the two Korean leaders a couple of years ago.
It's the first time a high-ranking North Korean official has publicly lashed out at activists' sending propaganda leaflets.
