North Korea: Phone did not pick up for two days, South Korea's tension increased, dictator Kim Jong is not getting answer from them

Europe News Desk!! Military officials said North Korea was not responding to regular calls via a military hotline for the second day on Saturday. The North did not respond to regular calls between the two sides at 9 a.m. after daily calls through the cross-border contact line and military hotline, Yonhap news agency quoted officials as saying. The two Koreas usually hold phone calls twice a day, in the morning and afternoon, using the Joint Liaison Office channel and their military channel. While the Liaison Office Channel operates only on weekdays, the Military Channel also takes calls on weekends. “We will monitor the situation including the possibility of a (technical) problem in the northern line,” an army official said. The suspension comes amid heightened tensions on the Korean Peninsula in the wake of North Korea’s recent weapons test in protest of joint military drills between South Korea and the US. Earlier in the day, the North’s state media reported that the country conducted an underwater detonation test of its Hyal-2 nuclear-capable attack drone earlier this week.
