North Korea has reportedly ceased operations of a radio station, identified as Radio Pyongyang, which was previously utilized for transmitting coded messages to agents stationed in South Korea. This development, disclosed by the Yonhap news agency on Saturday, suggests a shift in North Korea’s approach to its relations with Seoul.
In recent weeks, North Korea has escalated its pressure on Seoul, designating it as the “principal enemy” and asserting that reunification with the South is an unattainable goal. Additionally, the country has expressed its determination to enhance its capabilities for delivering a nuclear strike on the United States and its allies in the Pacific.
Radio Pyongyang, recognized as a numbers station, had traditionally broadcast enigmatic coded numbers believed to be intended for North Korean operatives operating in South Korea. Notably, the station’s website was inaccessible on the reported day. During a year-end meeting of the ruling party, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un directed a “decisive policy change” in relations with the South, instructing the military to be prepared for potential actions to pacify and occupy the South in times of crisis.
