North Korea Can­cels Joint Per­for­mance With South


SEOUL (Dis­patches) - North Korea has can­celled a joint cul­tural per­for­mance with South Korea sched­uled for Feb. 4 blam­ing South Korean me­dia for en­cour­ag­ing “in­sult­ing” pub­lic sen­ti­ment re­gard­ing the North, South Korea’s uni­fi­ca­tion min­istry said.

The North said it had no choice but to call off the per­for­mance, which was to be held in the North Korean ter­ri­tory of Mount Kum­gang, as South Korean me­dia con­tin­ued to in­sult what Py­ongyang called “sin­cere” mea­sures re­gard­ing the Win­ter Olympics Seoul will host next month, the min­istry said.
