Missile test will hurt inter-Korean ties: Seoul

Written by: Staff

Seoul, Jul 5: South Korea's foreign minister today said that North Korea's decision to fire missiles posed a threat to regional security and would impact inter-Korean ties.

Foreign Minister Ban Ki-moon did not say what measures Seoul would take in response to the missile launch but said the move would likely deepen the North's isolation.

Relations between the two Koreas have warmed in recent years but Pyongyang relies on the South to supply it with food to help feed its people. It has asked for 500,000 tonnes of rice from the South this year, but Seoul has not responded to the request.
