South Koreans react to North Korea UN sanctions

There have been mixed reactions in South Korea, after the UN’s decided to step up sanctions against Pyongyang and the North’s reaction to end all non-aggression pacts with Seoul.

Kim Woo-Hyok, a 24-year-old South Korean, said: “(North Korea) has been provocative every time there have been UN resolutions and sanctions. So I don’t think the new resolution will change the North. I’m more worried about the its declaration to end the armistice.”

Meanwhile peace protester, You Young-Jae, said he thinks the resolutions are a mistake:

“The UN resolutions against North Korea will make the situation worse, not facilitate peace on the peninsula, so we are decisively against the resolution.”

As well as ending its non-aggression pacts, North Korea has closed its hotline with the South and shut their shared border point.
