Yoon Seok-youl’s DPRK policy ensures return to ‘fire and fury’: Democratic Party

Democratic Party blasts presidential candidate after he suggests scrapping 2018 inter-Korean military agreement

Conservative South Korean presidential candidate Yoon Seok-youl would return the Korean Peninsula to the “fire and fury” tensions of 2017 if he wins, progressive Democratic Party (DP) lawmakers alleged on Thursday.

The accusation comes after Yoon said in an interview with the Seoul-based Kookmin Ilbo newspaper the previous day that he may scrap the Sept. 19, 2018 inter-Korean military agreement if North Korea continues to violate the deal with repeated missile tests.
