News Story: DPRK denounces Moon for displaying "sycophancy" during U.S. visit

PYONGYANG, July 2 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Sunday denounced South Korean President Moon Jae-in for displaying "sycophancy and submission" to the United States during his visit to Washington last week.

The official daily Rodong Sinmum said in a commentary that the new South Korean government "suffered mental pressure from the U.S. even before taking office and went without principle."

"South Korean authorities 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.," said the daily in the first response to Moon's trip to the United States by DPRK official media.

"Now their behavior raises doubt as to whether the pro-U.S. regime really ended," said the commentary in reference to the former South Korean government under President Park Geun-hye.
