North Korea sent South an “ultimatum” on removal of property at Kumgang: KCNA

State media warns DPRK could "unilaterally demolish facilities" at the resort

North Korea this week sent South Korea an “ultimatum” on its plans to demolish Southern-owned property at the Mount Kumgang tourist resort, the country's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said Friday in an unattributed article.

The message, KCNA said, was sent on Monday after Pyongyang “repeatedly and clearly informed" South Korea of its "firm intentions" toward the site on October 29 and November 6.
