North Korea abandons possibility of national reconciliation with South Korea

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said his country has abandoned efforts to pursue reconciliation with South Korea and called for rewriting the North’s constitution to eliminate the notion of shared statehood between the two countries. This departure from a decades-long pursuit of peaceful unification comes amid increasing tensions produced by the North’s weapons development program and the South’s joint military exercises with the United States. “…It’s very clear that diplomatic engagement remains the only possible path for sustainable peace on the Korean peninsula….” U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told reporters at the U.N. headquarters in New York.
