The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) will not have talks with the Lee Myung Bak administration of South Korea, the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) quoted a spokesman for reunification affairs as saying on Saturday.

"The option of the DPRK has become clear as the developments have proved that there is no room to discuss the inter-Korean relationship and reunification issues with the Lee group as it is steeped in the anti-DPRK confrontational hysteria to the marrow of its bones," said a spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland.

The spokesman accused the South Korean government of approaching a hostile policy to the DPRK, saying the "ultimate goal" of Lee's administration was to "launch a war against the DPRK."

Relations between the two Koreas technically still at war have frayed since February when conservative South Korean President Lee Myung-bak took office pledging to get tough with Pyongyang. The DPRK has decided to cut off all land borders with South Korea from December.
