    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.

    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.
