PYONGYANG, April 4 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) said Tuesday that South Korea should replace "conservative politics" of the former government with "new progressive politics" after the downfall of former President Park Geun Hye, according to DPRK's national daily.
The official daily of the Workers' Party Rodong Sinmum said in an article that "People from all walks of life in South Korea are becoming vocal, calling for an early end to the reactionary and conservative politics," with the impeachment of Park.
"It was quite natural that South Koreans spat at the conservative group and turned their back on them for having pursued corrupt and treacherous politics," read the article.
"The puppet conservative group (of South Korea) is a bandit of thrice-cursed traitors as they have brought unbearable national disgrace to the South Korean people.The people are bound to be disgraced if the traitors keen on sycophancy and dependence on foreign forces run wild," it said.
The DPRK has welcomed the impeachment of Park, whom it blamed for the tense inter-Korean relations, a hardline anti-DPRK policy and embracing a U.S. military design in the Asia-Pacific by agreeing to the deployment of Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system in South Korea.
