A North Korean official said inter-Korean relations depend on South Korea's attitude and criticized Seoul for supporting a recent United Nations resolution condemning the communist regime's human rights record, a news report said Saturday. The official at the North's National Reconciliation Council called Seoul's move "an act of defiance" and blamed the South for creating a stumbling block to inter-Korean ties, Yonhap news agency said without naming the official. South Korea earlier this month voted in favor of a UN resolution accusing the North of public executions, torture and other human rights violations. The draft resolution goes next to a plenary meeting of the 192-nation UN assembly for final approval. The North has recently stepped up criticism of the UN resolution, saying it toes the US line and is "full of sheer lies."
