North Korea vows Seoul will pay 'dear price' for criticising Pyongyang

SEOUL (AFP) - North Korea on Monday warned South Korea it would pay a "dear price" for recent criticisms of Pyongyang's nuclear programme and political system, saying they violated a no-slander agreement.

The warning from the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) came days after Pyongyang blasted South Korean President Park Geun Hye's proposals for Korean reunification as the "daydreams of a psychopath".

Ms Park was again the focus of the North's anger, with the CPRK denouncing comments she made during a recent tour of Europe.

"Our servicemen and people...will never tolerate the enemy forces' attempts to insult our system and will make sure they pay a dear price for their madcap comments," the committee said in a statement carried by the official KCNA news agency.
