South Korea’s Ministry of Unification has confirmed North Korea attacked the inter-Korean liaison office, which was a meeting place between the two nations.
North Korea has been recently warning the South of possible military action just hours before the attack was carried out.
The inter-Korean liaison office was established in 2018 in order to reduce tensions between the two Koreas.
The destruction of the office “broke the expectations of all people who hope for the development of inter-Korean relations and lasting peace on the peninsula”, deputy national security adviser Kim You-geun told a briefing, a report by Al Jazeera mentions. “We’re making clear that the North is entirely responsible for all the consequences this might cause,” he added.
