North Korean leader sorry for killing of South Korean official

NORTH Korean leader Kim Jong Un says he sorry about the killing of a South Korean official.

“It shouldn’t have happened”, the leader of the secretive nation reportedly states in a letter sent to the South Korean presidential Blue House on Friday morning.

The message follows South Korea’s demand for an apology and an explanation as to why North Korean troops shot dead a Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries employee who disappeared from a boat monitoring unauthorised fishing.

Pyongyang claims its troops had responded to a call that an unidentified man had been found floating on an object in the sea, and that he was shot when he failed to identify himself and ignored warning shots.

“Chairman Kim Jong Un asked to convey that he feels very sorry that instead of giving aid to our compatriots in the South, who are struggling with the Covid epidemic, we have given President Moon and our compatriots in the South a great disappointment with this unseen misfortune in our sea,” the letter reportedly reads.

The notice says North Korea would see to it that there no repeat of this “unfortunate incident”, and that it would “take care not to demolish trust between the North and South.”
