North Korea started trying to find the body, but also said that South Korean naval operations crossed a sea border into North Korean territory, North Korean state news agency KCNA said, according to Reuters. KCNA also called for South Korea to stop crossing the border in the west sea.
“We also took more necessary security measures in order to make sure that no more incident spoiling the relations of trust and respect between the north and the south would happen in any case,” KCNA said, according to Reuters.
Kim apologized last week for the official’s death after he was killed in North Korean waters, South Korean officials said, according to The Associated Press. South Korea accused their neighboring country of shooting and killing the official and setting his body on fire.
South Korean officials condemned North Korea over the incident and called the killing an “atrocious act,” urging their neighboring country to determine who was responsible, the AP reported. The official may have been attempting to defect from the south to the north, the AP reported.
