North Korea threatens to ‘reconsider’ high-level talks

Announcement is latest in continuing North Korea threats to cancel talks

North Korea has announced that it will reconsider the planned high-level talks due to the launch of propaganda leaflets across the 38th Parallel, South Korea’s Unification Ministry said Monday.

The announcement comes after anti-Pyongyang activists launched propaganda leaflets via balloon last Sunday despite objections from North Korea, progressive South Korean politicians and even some North Korean defector groups.
