North Korea accused conservatives in South Korea of stepping up 'propaganda broadcasting' aimed at fueling cross-border tensions and undermining the communist regime, a state-controlled front was quoted as saying by Yonhap News Agency.

In a communique carried by the (North) Korean Central News Agency, the Democratic Front for the Reunification of the Fatherland claimed conservatives in the South were using radio broadcasts as a tool to bring down the Pyongyang regime.

It said broadcasts by North Korea Reform Radio, the Open Radio for North Korea and several Christian evangelical programs reaching North Korea were using human rights as a weapons to hurt the communist regime.

This, the reunification front said, is in direct violation of the spirit of the June 15 Declaration reached between the two leaders in 2000, and would have a detrimental effect on bilateral relations.
'Such actions are anti-unification and anti-nationalistic in nature and will lead to ideological confrontation,' it said in the message picked up in Seoul."
