“No future” for inter-Korean relations, top North Korean officials declare

Kim Yo Jong says South "subservient" to U.S., while Jang Kum Chol closes door on all contacts

Two top North Korean officials on Wednesday declared there was "no future" for inter-Korean ties, blaming Seoul's alleged subservience to Washington for the breakdown in relations.

In two separate statements carried by state media, Kim Yo Jong, younger sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and head of the United Front Department (UFD) Jang Kum Chol slammed Seoul for its failure to stop activists sending anti-regime leaflets into the North.
