N. Korea urges S. Korea to fend off U.S. pressure, warns of renewed tensions

North Korea on Saturday pressed South Korea to ignore pressure from the United States and move ahead with inter-Korean cooperation.

The special message by the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country (CPRC) came as the two Koreas commemorate the first anniversary of the historic Panmunjom summit amid doubts about the denuclearization process.

The U.S. is plainly putting pressure on South Korea, demanding that inter-Korean ties do not outpace Washington's relations with North Korea, the organ, which handles Pyongyang's daily affairs on Seoul, said.

Washington is attempting to force inter-Korean relations to be subordinate to its policy of sanctions, it claimed.

"A grave security condition is being created that may return to the past when a catastrophe was looming amid the thickening danger of a war," the committee said in what it described as a "memorandum." (Yonhap)
