N. Korea rejects South's offer of economic aid

Kim Yo-jong, sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, rejected on Friday South Korea's proposal of economic support in exchange for denuclearization. She stated the proposal is "the height of folly" Pyongyang will "never deal with."

According to Yonhap, Kim dismissed the initiative as "just a copy" of the one offered by former South Korean President Lee Myung-bak around a decade ago. "There are other things to bargain in the world, and the idea of ​​exchanging the nuclear power of our nation with things such as economic cooperation is Yoon Seok-yeol's lush dream," Kim said.
