N. Korea blames S. Korean president for deterioration of inter-Korean relationsUpdated: 2014-06-16 06:27:30 (KST)
North Korea is blaming South Korean President Park Geun-hye for causing a deterioration of inter-Korean relations.
Pyongyang's state-run daily Rodong Shinmun condemned the Park administration for engaging in confrontation with the North and relying on foreign powers.
The daily denounced President Park's policy of "trustpolitik" as well as her Dresden Declaration for reuniting the two Koreas, saying she is only using the ideas to curry favor with foreign countries and that inter-Korean relations are on the verge of collapsing as a result.
The latest blast from the North came on the 14th anniversary of a landmark joint declaration signed by the two Koreas.
The declaration calls for enhanced cooperation between the Koreas and was signed on June 15th, 2000 at the end of a historic summit between then President Kim Dae-jung and the late North Korean leader Kim Jong-il.
