North Korea to cut communication lines to South

North Korea is severing all official communication links with the South, it announced Tuesday in a move analysts said was aimed at manufacturing a crisis on the divided peninsula.

Since last week the North has issued a series of vitriolic denunciations of the South over activists sending anti-Pyongyang leaflets over the border – something defectors do on a regular basis.

Authorities in the North have organised large-scale rallies of citizens across the country in support of their threats, which come with inter-Korean ties at a standstill for months despite three summits between the North’s leader Kim Jong-un and the South’s President Moon Jae-in in 2018.

The move will cut all official communication links between the two sides, but the immediate effect will be limited – Pyongyang has refused to engage with Seoul for months, with few if any conversations on the lines aside from test calls.
