SEOUL, Oct. 4 (Xinhua) -- South Korea on Friday expressed deep regret over the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)'s condemnation of President Park Geun-hye by her name.
"It is deeply regrettable that North Korea (DPRK) criticized our head of state with unmentionable words by name," Seoul's Unification Ministry spokesman Kim Eui-do told an emergency press briefing.
The DPRK's Policy Department of the National Defense Commission (NDC) said in a spokesman's statement earlier Friday that if "Park Geun-hye and her cohorts" seek ruthlessly to dismantle Pyongyang's nuclear program and subvert its regime in collusion with foreign power under the pretext of causing changes in the DPRK, it would be equivalent to digging its own graves.
