 1 yr | Kim Jong Un claims North Korea has hydrogen bomb

              North Korean leader Kim Jong Un appeared on Thursday to claim his country has developed a hydrogen bomb, a step up from the less powerful atomic bomb, but outside experts were skeptical.

 1 yr | North Korea says no apology over mine explosion, warns S. Korea against provocation

              North Korea says its expression of "regret" over last month's mine explosion that seriously injured two South Korean soldiers was not an apology, accusing the South of interpreting the meaning of the word to its own advantage. The North's National Defense Committee issued a statement Wednesday, calling on South Korea to avoid any remarks that could "dampen" inter-Korean relations and return the peninsula to confrontation, the South's Yonhap news agency reported. The word "regret" was part of an agreement reached on August 24 to end tensions on the Korean peninsula, and it was widely interpreted as an apology, which had been demanded by the South.

BREAKING


 1 yr | North and South Korea reach agreement to defuse tensions

              North and South Korea have reached a momentous agreement in an effort to end tensions on the Korean peninsula, which have been high after two alleged attacks by North Korea, including a mine explosion that seriously injured two South Korean soldiers. In the deal agreed to on early Tuesday morning, the North expressed "regret" over the mine explosion while the South agreed to end its loudspeaker propaganda along the border. As a result, the North will end its quasi-state of war at noon on Tuesday. The terms were made public in a joint statement, which also said the countries will work towards the reunion of families separated by the Korean War, beginning with a Red Cross meeting in early September.
