The situation on the Korean peninsula deteriorated sharply, with explosions suddenly heard and smoke billowing from the Kaesong Industrial Complex in North Korea yesterday, and the South Korean Ministry of Unification later confirmed that the inter-Korean liaison office there had been blown up by the North.
Since early June, North Korea has repeatedly criticized South Korea for allowing defector groups to spread anti-DPRK leaflets. Kim and Jong, the sister-in-law of North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong-un, recently threatened to cut off inter-Korean communication channels and even warned that they would allow "useless inter-Korean The liaison office collapsed into rubble", not realizing that North Korea yesterday at 2:49 p.m. (1:49 p.m. Singapore time) Really blew up the building.
North Korea's official media agency KCNA confirmed in the afternoon that North Korea has completely destroyed the inter-Korean liaison office in the Kaesong industrial zone. The report noted that this was an attempt to pander to angry public opinion and "make scum and those who acquiesce in scum's actions pay the price".
In response, South Korea's presidential office, Cheong Wa Dae, held an emergency national security meeting yesterday and issued a statement after the meeting, saying of the North's move Strongly regretted. The statement noted that the DPRK has reneged on its desire for peace on the peninsula and the development of inter-Korean relations, and that it should be held responsible for the consequences of this act. If the DPRK continues to take actions that further aggravate the situation, the South Korean side will also respond strongly.
In addition, the South Korean Defense Ministry also said that if the DPRK continues to make military provocations, the South Korean army will also respond strongly. Meanwhile, the South Korean military has stepped up surveillance and preparedness in response to possible clashes and accidents at the inter-Korean border.
South Korea's Dong-A Ilbo pointed out that there may be a complicated reason behind North Korea's move at this time. The DPRK has been looking forward to the big picture of the nuclear talks, hoping that the U.S. would "cooperate," but U.S. President Donald Trump has demanded that the DPRK first sincerely fulfill its " Denuclearization Measures".
Then again, Trump has been affected by a domestic coronary epidemic and a wave of demonstrations and protests against racial discrimination and police brutality, and his success in re-election at the end of the year has become increasingly unpredictable, with increased anxiety in North Korea.
If DPRK-US relations do not bear fruit during Trump's term in office, DPRK will not even be able to maintain the security of the regime amidst economic difficulties aggravated by international sanctions. All very difficult. As a result, Kim Jong-un may continue to resort to more aggressive cliffside provocations.

Following the recent incident in which a group of South Korean defectors spread anti-DPRK leaflets against the DPRK, infuriating the Pyongyang authorities, Kim and Jong, through official media, bombarded South Korea for tolerating the defectors and called them "scum", and Pyongyang subsequently announced the closure of military and political liaison channels with South Korea, its "enemy", leading to rising tensions between the DPRK and South Korea.
Kim and Jong Jong fired again on the 13th, saying that inter-Korean relations had reached a "moment of farewell" and announced that they would hand over the exercise of the relevant operations to the North Korean military. General Staff, hinting at the use of force against South Korea. It is understood that the operation of the inter-Korean liaison office was suspended in January this year due to the coronary epidemic.
