SEOUL, July 2 (Yonhap) -- North Korea on Sunday condemned the South for what it called Seoul's "submission to the U.S.," as leaders of the two countries joined their voices last week in urging Pyongyang to give up its nuclear ambition.
The Rodong Sinmun, the North's main newspaper, published a commentary that assessed Seoul's senior officials as having "revealed their miserable appearance seized with sycophancy and submission to the U.S. occasioned by the chief executive's first junket to the U.S.," referring to South Korean President Moon Jae-in's recent first trip to Washington.
The newspaper argued that albeit talks of alliance between the two sides, the U.S. "regards them (South Korea) as a mere puppet and colonial servant."
The Rodong Sinmun further lashed out at the new Seoul administration, saying that its senior leadership would end up "into the rubbish heap of history" if the South "yields to the U.S" while antagonizing the North.
