North Korea blasts South's idea of unified system

Recommended Posts

SEOUL, June 29 (UPI) -- North Korea said any South Korea plans for a unified system would lead to war.

In an editorial in Pyongyang's state newspaper the Rodong Sinmun, North Korea said the two Koreas espouse remarkably different ideologies and systems, South Korean news agency Yonhap reported.

"South Korea's plan of a unified system between North and South would only lead to distrust and a showdown," Pyongyang said. "North and South Korea have been set in their different ideologies and systems for more than half a century...if one side insists on its ideology to the other, unwilling to give up its own, then a showdown is inevitable."

South Korean news outlet BBS reported North Korea also took aim at the current South Korea government and said Seoul is challenging the precepts of the June 15 North-South Joint Declaration of 2000, which promoted peaceful means of bringing the two Koreas together.
