FILE - In this Friday, April 25, 2014 file photo, U.S. President Barack Obama, left, and South Korean President Park Geun-hye listen to a reporter's question during a joint news conference at the Blue House in Seoul, South Korea. South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok said Monday, May 12, 2014, that North Korea isn't a real country and exists for the benefit of only one person, a reference to dictator Kim Jong Un. He says the North has no human rights or public freedoms. The comments followed a series of sexist and racist slurs by North Korea against the leaders of South Korea and the United States. Pyongyang's state media likened Park to an "old prostitute" and Obama to a "monkey" in recent dispatches. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak, file)
