DPRK media denounces Seoul for seeking U.S. “approval” on inter-Korean projects

DPRK Today article appears to be first North Korean reaction to Seoul's "independent tourism" idea

North Korean media over the weekend criticized the South for "begging" Washington for U.S. "approval" on matters concerning inter-Korean tourism, referring to the recent U.S.-ROK working group talks and a Blue House official's visit to the U.S.

In what appears to be North Korean media's first-ever reaction on the Moon administration's push for "independent tourism" this year, DPRK Today, an externally-focused media outlet, slammed Seoul for "mooching off the foreign power" when inter-Korean problems should be solved between the two Koreas.
