North Korea’s new leadership lashes out at South Korea
North Korea’s first official communication with the outside world following the death of leader Kim Jong-il and the transition of power to his son was a sombre warning to South Korea and its allies that it would not change policies.
The main target of the message, delivered by state news agency KCNA and attributed to the North’s National Defence Commission, was South Korea’s conservative government headed by President Lee Myung-bak who has pursued a hardline stance against the isolated and impoverished North.
“On this occasion, we solemnly declare with confidence that foolish politicians around the world including the puppet forces in South Korea should not expect any changes from us,” said the commission which was the top governing body under Kim Jong-il.
