North Korea blew up the inter-Korean communication center in the border town of Kaesong, according to sources in South Korea. Currently known facts revealed the Agency “Yonhap”.
It is reported that erosion occurred at 14:49 local time. The Minister of unification of Korea said that North Korea had planned a blast in advance and publicly announced it.
The Agency points out a few days ago the words of Kim yo-Jong, sister of North Korean leader: it stated that “useless” site when it’s time to destroy. Undermine it was an act of retaliation for distributing campaign leaflets in which North Korea accuses the South.
About the explosion near the border was reported on the morning of 16 June. It happened shortly after the news about the plans of the DPRK to deploy troops in the demilitarized border region: the North Korean authorities intended to strengthen the border with its southern neighbors. This was announced earlier in the day.
On 9 June, North Korea has shut down all communication lines with Seoul. Shortly before this came the disposal of Pyongyang on the final termination of communication across all channels, including military and special the line between the top leadership of the two countries.
