North Koreans ready to blow up inter-Korean liaison office, state media says

On 20th anniversary of historic June 15 declaration, DPRK media warns of looming "retaliation" against the ROK

North Korean youth at a coal mine have said they are ready to help "blow up" the inter-Korean liaison office at Kaesong, the country's ruling party daily reported Monday, amid a mounting domestic propaganda campaign.

The report follows remarks from Kim Yo Jong, a top official and sister of leader Kim Jong Un, warning that the liaison office -- opened in the North Korean city of Kaesong in 2018 -- would soon be "completely collapsed" in future.
