S.Korea protests North Korea’s massive water release from dam
No early warning system currently active between two Koreas: Unification Ministry

South Korea criticized North Korea for releasing large amounts of water into the Imjin River on late Monday night, without any warning, resulting in unusually high water levels on the South Korean side of the river.

Seoul strongly urged that Pyongyang issued a clear warning before such discharges in the future, as similar incidents in the past have resulted in fatalities on the South Korean side.
