     The North Korean regime has threatened to reveal more past conversations with visiting South Korean lawmakers and envoys.

    Criticizing a controversy over the release of a transcript of the 2007 inter-Korean summit, Pyongyang's Committee for the Peaceful Unification of the Fatherland warned it could disclose more details of conversations between North Korean officials and visiting South Korean figures during which they tried to ingratiate themselves with the regime.

    Some ruling-party lawmakers here say former President Roh Moo-hyun made concessions to the North during the 2007 summit including redrawing the Northern Limit Line, the de-facto sea border which runs close to the North Korean shore.

    Analysts say this is the North's way of pressuring President Park Geun-hye, because she visited Pyongyang and met then-North Korean leader Kim Jong-il in 2002.
