North Korea sends rare letter of protest over new US sanctions

Hwang Woo-yea, the education minister under Ms Park, said that they were meant to teach "the proud history of South Korea, which has achieved both democratisation and industrialisation in the shortest time in the world history".

Moon is a liberal who advocates a more conciliatory approach to North Korea compared with his conservative predecessor. Free Trade Agreement (KORUS), both Trump and Moon appear willing at least in principle to meet with Kim Jong Un, suggestive that the gulf between Seoul and Washington post-election may be smaller in this area than predicted.

It was not immediately clear how the protest was conveyed since North Korea and the United States have no diplomatic relations and virtually no official channels of communication.

There was elaboration in either the Xinhua report or the KCNA report on how many suspects North Korea was seeking, or of who or where they were, but Xinhua said North Korea had vowed to "hunt down to the last one of the suspects in every corner of the earth".

Last week, it said the United States and South Korea should "execute" those involved in the purported plot.

Regional experts have believed for months that North Korea is preparing for its sixth nuclear test. Modi invited the South Korean President to India, also expressing hope to hold bilateral talks at upcoming global meetings like G20 summit slated for July.

North Korea on Thursday urged Moon's government to end what it considers confrontational policies, including joint drills with the US military.

North Korea has a history of making unfounded claims, and CNN did not independently corroborate last week's report.

An alternative approach, he wrote, would be for the United States, South Korea, China, Japan and Russian Federation to join in a new "five-party" talks aimed at developing a "coordinated policy of "containment" to prevent wild actions by North Korea".

Moon praised Modi for his leadership, saying India was becoming a global leader on various worldwide issues, including North Korea's nuclear ambitions.

North Korea has called for an worldwide forum of legal experts to review the United Nations sanctions. Furthermore, lacking an outright majority in the National Assembly, Moon's Minjoo Party will need to coordinate with others to address domestic reforms, with the centrist People's Party being the most likely partner.

Stangarone also added that whatever worldwide plans Moon has, the economic situation in South Korea and the fact that he was elected following an impeachment mean that domestic issues will constrain what he wants to do.

"The new South Korean government will actively communicate with China on these issues and seek appropriate resolutions", the statement quoted Moon as saying.

"These biochemical substances were to be provided with the assistance of the CIA. while the South Korean Intelligence Service was going to provide necessary support and funding for this attempt at assassination on our Supreme Leader".

Russia's President Vladimir Putin told his newly elected South Korean counterpart, Moon Jae-in, in a phone call on Friday that he is ready to play a "constructive role" in resolving North Korea's nuclear threat, the South's presidential office said.

The deployment of THAAD was agreed a year ago by South Korea's previous administration after North Korea conducted a long-range rocket launch that put an object into space.
