SEOUL, May 10 (RIA Novosti) – North Korea has called the South Korean President’s recent visit to the United States a “prelude to war,” Yonhap reported on Friday citing North Korean media sources.
“It is a curtain-raiser to a dangerous war to invade” a North Korean official was cited as saying, Yonhap reported.
South Korea’s President Park Geun-hye took office in February, and the visit to the United States was her first official foreign trip as President.
North Korea was a key point on the agenda for her meetings with US President Barack Obama, given the worrying escalation of tensions on the Korean peninsula following the isolated state’sthird nuclear test in February.
