North Korean media: South Korea must stop “hostile acts” if it wants dialogue

"A wide road to cooperation and exchanges will open" should military tensions ease: Uriminzokkiri

South Korea must end military drills and other "hostile acts" if it wants to resume inter-Korean dialogue and cooperation, the North Korean-run outlet Uriminzokkiri said on Friday, calling for the two sides to resolve "fundamental issues" first.

In the commentary, Uriminzokkiri -- which primarily targets foreign audiences and is not meant for domestic consumption -- reiterated DPRK leader Kim Jong Un's warning in April that the situation on the Korean peninsula "stands at a critical crossroads."
