Seoul to pursue legal action over North Korea’s destruction of liaison office

South Korea says it will announce measures before 3rd anniversary on Friday, when statute of limitations expires

Seoul will seek legal measures over North Korea’s destruction of the inter-Korean liaison office three years ago, a unification ministry official said Tuesday, ahead of the expiration of the statute of limitations later this week.

The DPRK blew up the liaison office building largely funded by South Korea on June 16, 2020, in protest against anti-regime leaflets that defector activists sent northward by balloon.
