North Korea denounces Moon for 'sycophancy' on USA visit

The incident came after a North Korean fishing boat with eight people on board developed an engine trouble and drifted into South Korean waters off the country's eastern coast late last month.

Five North Koreans in a small boat crossed the sea border into South Korean waters Saturday, a Coast Guard official said, in an apparent bid to defect to the South.

North Korea on Sunday denounced South Korean President Moon Jae-in for displaying "sycophancy and submission" to the United States during his visit to Washington last week.

"South Korean authorities revealed their miserable appearance seized with sycophancy and submission to the United States occasioned by the chief executive's first junket to the U.S.", said the daily. South Korea returns those on board to the North unless they have expressed a desire to defect.

Kang said after taking office that the North Korea's nuclear issue is "the top priority task" of the new South Korean government and called for "international cooperation for checking the north from modernizing nuclear and missile capabilities".

South Korea, for its part, has accused the North of holding hundreds of South Korean fishermen against their will after their ships strayed into North Korean waters. Almost all of them traveled through China, but some have defected through the heavily guarded land or maritime borders separating the two Koreas.

Citing several unnamed high-ranking Malaysian investigative authorities, it said Han Sol felt it would be too risky for him to claim his father's remains in person. In some cases, according to the South, they were abducted by the North in the decades after the 1950-53 Korean War. That makes them more vulnerable to South Korean propaganda being blasted by loudspeaker across the demilitarized zone.

Most flee across the porous frontier with neighbouring China.

The body of Jong Nam, which went through two embalming processes, was flown back to Pyongyang on March 31.
