N.Korea Issues Terse Report on S.Korean Election

      December 21, 2012 13:12

      The North Korean state media on Thursday reported the result of this year's South Korean presidential election.

      The state-run KCNA news agency devoted one sentence to it. "According to domestic and international news reports, the ruling Saenuri Party candidate was elected as the next president after a fiercely close battle on Wednesday." It did not mention her name or comment in a separate editorial.

      In 2007, North Korea did not react at all to the then-Grand National Party Candidate Lee Myung-bak's win until early the following month.
