Kim Jong Un issues an ‘apology’ for killing South Korean official

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has issued an apology over the killing of a South Korea official near the rivals’ disputed sea boundary, saying he’s “very sorry” about the “unexpected” and “unfortunate” incident, South Korean officials. 

In a formal notice to South Korea, Kim said he felt “very sorry” for “disappointing” President Moon Jae-in and other South Koreans in connection with the incident, state-run Yonhap News Agency reported. 

“Comrade Kim Jong Un, the State Affairs Commission chairman, feels very sorry to give big disappointment to President Moon Jae-in and South Korean citizens because an unexpected, unfortunate incident happened” at a time when South Korea grapples with the coronavirus pandemic, Moon adviser Suh Hoon cited the North Korean message as saying. 

A day earlier, South Korea had accused North Korea of fatally shooting one of its public servants who was likely trying to defect and burning his body after finding him on a floating object in North Korean waters earlier this week.
