S. Korea says current situation on Korean peninsula not a crisis

S. Korea says current situation on Korean peninsula not a crisis

In an editorial in its main newspaper, the Rodong Sinmun, North Korea promulgates the policy of "juche", meaning self-reliance, claiming ideological independence from its allies - the Soviet Union and China - at that time.

Multiple South Korean media outlets, including Yonhap News Agency, reported that the defector was a man in his 20s.

The repatriated North Korean fisherman was swept away from Mongkumpo in South Hwanghae Province, while he was trawling for shellfish, according to Seoul.

The North Korean man was rescued near Daecheong Island along the western coast of the peninsula, not far from the Northern Limit Line that separates the two Koreas at sea.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic got 17 as part of 28 in all competitions before his campaign was ended early by a knee ligament injury. Chelsea , without European football, were able to run away with the title, as Leicester managed to do the season before.

The government said that two of the sailors, a father in his 50s and son in his 20s, had expressed their desire to defect to the South immediately after their rescue, and that the other two sailors had returned to the North on June 9. The family reunion project materialized decades later, in a 2000 summit meeting between President Kim Dae-jung and North Korean leader Kim Jong-il, who agreed to regularly hold the humanitarian event. Investment sentiment is worsening due to the escalating tensions between the USA and North Korea, with Pyongyang threatening to fire missiles near Guam, and President Trump doubling down on his strong rhetoric.

The defection comes more than a month after a flurry of North Korea military desertions. The soldier reportedly used blocks of Styrofoam as floats for his back and shoulders to survive the risky swim.

"Our military located the detector and are in the process of investigating the motive and process of the defection and so on", the JCS said in a written statement.
