North Korean media hits out against South on Kaesong Industrial Complex, food aid

DPRK accuses ROK of "deception of public sentiment" over plans for humanitarian shipments

North Korea’s external-focused media on Monday and over the weekend slammed the South Korean government for its continued reluctance to reopen the Kaesong Industrial Complex (KIC) and an ongoing domestic debate over humanitarian food aid.

In a Korean-language commentary written by Ko Chong Myong, the online outlet Meari today pointed to the Moon Jae-in government's failure to resume work at the KIC as proof of its disinterest in implementing inter-Korean declarations.
