N.K. leader apologizes to S. Koreans for 'unsavory' shooting case: Cheong Wa Dae

 

 

North Korean leader Kim JeongEun(김정은) has offered an apology to the South Korean people for the killing of a South Korean citizen by its military earlier this week.

 

This was announced by CheongWadae(청와대) today.

 

In a formal notice sent to the South, the North conveyed Kim's message that he feels "very sorry" for greatly "disappointing" President Moon JaeIn(문재인) and other South Koreans with the occurrence of the "unsavory" case in its waters. This was instead of helping them amid their suffering from the COVID 19 situation, according to Seo Hoon(서훈) the director of National Security at CheongWaeDae(청와대).

 

The North was informing the South of the results of its own probe into what happened in the notice sent by the United Front Department (UFD), a Workers' Party organ handling inter-Korean relations.

 

The North said the "unidentified" man, who crossed the western sea border without authorization, did not respond sincerely to its verbal security checks aboard a floating material about 80m away.

 

Approaching the material, the North's troops shot two blanks, and he was seen as attempting to flee. They then fired more than 10 gunshots at the distance of 40 to 50m under the related rules of engagement for maritime border security, according to the North's account.

 

After shooting, they searched the floating material but only found plenty of blood, not his body, the North claimed.

 

They burned the material in accordance with the state emergency guidelines for the prevention of COVID 19, it added.
