South Korean pres­i­dent urges N Kore­ans to de­fect

The Myanmar Times - - World -

South Korean Pres­i­dent Park Geun-Hye called on North Kore­ans to aban­don their coun­try and de­fect, just a day af­ter a sol­dier walked across the heav­ily for­ti­fied bor­der into the South. In a rare mes­sage di­rectly ad­dressed to rankand-file troops and North Korean cit­i­zens, the pres­i­dent in­vited North Kore­ans to re­lo­cate to the “bo­som of free­dom” in the South. In a speech mark­ing the coun­try’s Armed Forces Day on Oc­to­ber 1, Ms Park said they are aware of the grue­some re­al­i­ties North Kore­ans face, adding they should en­joy the uni­ver­sal val­ues of free­dom, democ­racy, hu­man rights and wel­fare.
