North Korea

Rodong Sinmun hits US for demanding Korea pay bigger share in USFK costs

North Korea is using a tug-of-war between the U.S. and South Korea over sharing costs for the presence of the 28,500 personnel of U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) as leverage to strengthen its argument that the South should unite with the North to fight against foreign powers.North Korea's party mouthpiece Rodong Sinmun on Wednesday published an editorial titled "the intention behind the demand to increase defense costs," where it said the U.S. is not treating the South as its ally. It said the U.S. is only pursuing its own interests while hampering the progress of peace talks between the two Koreas.
