North Korea blasts President Park's unification initiativesUpdated: 2014-04-12 18:36:15 (KST)
Our top story this evening
North Korea has launched a stinging verbal attack on South Korean President Park Geun-hye, calling her recent unification initiatives "irrelevant and nonsensical."
In her "Dresden Declaration" made last month in the former East German city of the same name, President Park proposed three ways to bring the two Koreas together: increasing humanitarian aid, holding more family reunions and assisting in North Korea's infrastructure projects.
A spokesperson for the North's National Defense Commission said Saturday that the declaration was made by someone who is ignorant of the present state of North-South relations.
The official also said President Park's three proposals would do little to improve relations between the two Koreas.
