News Story: DPRK slams South Korean gov't call for stronger alliance with U.S.

PYONGYANG, June 27 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Tuesday slammed the South Korean government for calling for stronger U.S.-South Korea alliance.

"The South Korea-U.S. alliance is the noose of domination, subjugation and subordination," said the official daily Rodong Sinmun in an article.

Saying that the new government in Seoul was "professing democratic reform", the article said voices of a "stronger alliance" with the United States were still heard from the new government.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in will pay a visit to the United States this week, the first foreign trip he will take since being elected president, during which he will meet U.S. President Donald Trump.
