North Korea has pledged to increase border military operations

A day after it blew up its liaison office with Syria, North Korea on Wednesday threatened to increase its military presence at the inter-Korean project sites and rebuild guard posts in the militant zone.

In a series of rejections from Seoul, it rejected the proposal that he had come to send ambassadors to negotiate with Southern President Moon Jae-in.

Kim Yong Jong, the powerful sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, has officially called it a "low and bad proposition", according to KCNA news agency.

The Northern Army said it would resume military maneuvers in the border region and prepare to send pamphlets to the south.

Pyongyang broke out in Seoul on anti-Pyongyang pamphlets sent north by defectors after demolishing its liaison office in the Kasong Industrial Area across the northern border.

Relations between neighbors have stalled since the end of a summit last year between the nuclear-armed North and the US to relieve sanctions in Hanoi, and Pyongyang is ready to give up instead.

A regimental level unit will be deployed to the Mount Kumgang tourist area and the Kaesang complex, a North Army spokesman said.

The two zones are the sites of long-winded joint inter-Korean projects: Southern tourists visited the beautiful Kumgang Mountain, where a North Korean soldier shot and killed a woman until 2008.

On the Kaesong campus - which has a liaison office until Tuesday - South Korean companies have hired North Korean workers, and Pyongyang has paid its employees in an attractive setting.

The 2018 military spokesman said guard posts removed from the non-military zone would be re-arranged to "strengthen front-line guards" under the 2018 Inter-Korean Agreement.

And artillery in naval areas, resuming "all kinds of general military exercises."

In an unrelated KCNA commentary, North said that Ciazin "proves to be the first step toward" total disaster "in inter-Korean relations if he does not control his tongue.

Since the beginning of June, the South has been severely condemned by North Korean defenders for regularly delivering leaflets, usually attached to balloons or floating in bottles.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has criticized the Flyers for violating human rights and his nuclear ambitions.

In a separate KCNA report, Pyongyang said that the southern left-leaning moon on Monday gave Pyongyang his chief of intelligence, Suh Hoon, and national security adviser Chung I-yong, as special ambassadors.

But KCNA reported that Kim Yo Jong's answer was to turn down a "flat" offer.

After the hostilities ended in the Korean War in 1953, the two Koreas were technically at war but not a peace treaty.
