Cheong Wa Dae has vowed firm action against any move by North Korea that could worsen tensions after the regime blew up the cross-border liaison office in Kaesong.
After an emergency meeting of top security officials, the presidential office said that the move has betrayed expectations of improving inter-Korean relations and fostering peace on the Korean Peninsula.
The Unification Ministry here echoed the remarks, adding that that the demolition was "senseless" and should not have happened. The ministry also called it a violation of a 2018 summit agreement.
The provocation comes just a day after President Moon Jae-in reached out to Pyongyang, urging the North to keep its door open to dialogue.
