Kim Yo-jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, has called President Moon Jae-in’s proposal to declare a formal end to the Korean War “interesting” and “a good idea.”

Posted on state-run Korean Central News Agency(KCNA) Friday, her statement comes just seven hours after the North's Vice Foreign Minister Ri Thae-song had dismissed the pitch made at the UN General Assembly as "premature." 

Kim, who serves as the deputy director of the ruling party's Publicity and Information Department, said such a declaration could end the decades-long instability on the Korean Peninsula and have the involved parties withdraw hostilities against each other.

She set preconditions to the declaration and improvement in inter-Korean relations, saying they must guarantee mutual respect and withdrawals of bias, antagonistic policies and unfair double standards. 

She said as long as Seoul stops provocations, applying a double standard and hostility against Pyongyang, the regime is open to close communication and resuming dialogue to restore and develop inter-Korean ties.
