North Korea said Wednesday it does not expect its relations with South Korea to improve so long as President Park Geun-hye remains in office in Seoul.

The North’s main newspaper, Rodong Sinmun, accused Park of plunging inter-Korean ties to their lowest point ever and called her North Korea’s sworn enemy.

“Nothing will be resolved in inter-Korean relations as long as Park remains” in power, the newspaper said, as it called for the end of Park’s rule. Her single five-year term is set to end in 2018.

It is not unusual for the North to hurl diatribes against Park and issue threats against South Korea over alleged slander and comments critical of the North.

Last week, the two Koreas exchanged fire near their tense western sea border in their latest military tit-for-tat, though no casualties were reported, according to South Korean military officials.

The sides have also traded accusations over a trio of small drones found crashed recently on the southern side of the heavily fortified border separating the two nations.

South Korea said the North sent the drones over the border, but the North has denied any involvement and accused South Korea of fabricating the incidents.

Cross-border relations are currently at one of their lowest points in many years. A Seoul defense ministry spokesman recently called for the end of the North Korean regime while Pyongyang has issued sexist and vulgar expletives against the female leader in the South. (Yonhap)
