North Korea’s Kim Jong-un suspends military action against the South
A week after the North Korean army threatened to redeploy forces to the demilitarized zone and blew up a liaison office, Kim Jong-un put military action plans against the South on hold. The announcement came on Tuesday after a video conference of the ruling party’s Central Military Commission presided over by Kim. Tensions blew up over the propaganda leaflets floated from the South over North Korea. The conference meeting also discussed “documents outlining measures for further bolstering the war deterrent of the country,” the official news agency reported.
