Kim Jong Un,

The North Korea expressed sorrow that a South Korean man had been shot dead to avoid the spread of coronavirus, the national security advisor of the South said, in the midst of increasing public and political indignation.

The apology emerged in a letter to South Korean President Moon Jae from the United Front Department of the North, which manages cross-border relations, a day after Seoul officials said the North ‘s soldiers killed the man, dumped his body in oil and set it on fire.

The leadership of North Korea hopes that the incident would not disrupt recent attempts to promote trust between neighbors, Suh quoted the letter from the North as saying, adding that Moon and Kim had exchanged letters in hopes of improved relations this month.

In his Sept 8 message, his office said, Moon lauded Kim’s “solid commitment to save lives” and direct the management of viruses and flood recovery work. In a response from Sept 12, Kim said Moon would win the battle of Covid-19 and after that “good stuff” can happen. Since 2018, the leaders have hosted three summits and signed pacts to relieve friction, but after the breakdown last year of a second summit between Kim and US President Donald Trump, at which Moon had promised to be a mediator, relations have soured.
