ICBM launch won’t change government policy on North Korea: South Korea

Approval of inter-Korean meetings will "no longer" be publicized, however

The South Korean government's policy of engagement and dialogue towards Pyongyang will remain mostly unchanged by North Korea’s launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on Tuesday morning, a Ministry of Unification (MoU) spokesperson told press on Wednesday.

"The basis of the Seoul government’s North Korea policies will not change (because of this launch),” Lee Duk-haeng, a MoU spokesperson told media during a regular news briefing.
