Kim Jong-un has cancelled a joint ‘cultural event’ with South Korea ahead of the Winter Olympics, after complaining about ‘biased’ media reports.
The two countries had been due to stage the event at North Korea’s Mount Kumgang on February 4 – just days before the Games in Pyeongchang get underway.
But Pyongyang, which has agreed to send a delegation to the sports extravaganza, has now called off the joint cultural performance blaming ‘insulting’ media coverage, according to Seoul’s unification ministry.
The North said it had no choice but to cancel the event because South Korean media continued to insult what Pyongyang called ‘sincere’ measures regarding the Winter Olympics, the ministry said.
