KCNA laid out the alleged plot in great detail, saying it was hatched in 2014 when the South Korean and USA intelligence agencies recruited a North Korean working in the timber industry in eastern Russian Federation. Seoul had ordered it closed after Pyongyang defied worldwide warnings and tested a long-range rocket. The North has a grim record of military aggression, abductions and assassinations against South Korean leaders that pale in comparison to anything it has faced.
Flak from Japanese reluctant to let wayward North Korea disrupt everyday life came fast and furious. "Moon might not be able to reopen Kaesong right away but he will follow steps toward it in the course of improving South-North Korean relations".

"China will not allow its northeastern region to be contaminated by North Korea's nuclear activities", the Global Times declared. China can not be happy to see reinforcement of the United States military presence in Western Pacific and increasing military cooperation between the USA and Japan (a Japanese helicopter carrier took part in an exercise for the first time) that North Korean missile tests have brought about.
"We want to be in the driver's seat".

The bill also requires the Trump administration to determine within 90 days whether North Korea is a state sponsor of terrorism. He shares a premise there with South Korean liberals.
Thus, the North Korean troubles too brew up in the same manner, where-in the entire nation led by the dictator par excellence in Pyongyang is being lambasted upon. Another leading candidate supports the "sunshine policy" under which Kaesong was created, and kept open in spite of successive North Korean nuclear tests.
