South Korea’s spy agency chief resigned Sunday, Yonhap news agency reported, as tensions soar over neighbouring North Korea’s nuclear weapons and missile programmes.

President Yoon Suk Yeol accepted the resignation offer by National Intelligence Service director Kim Kyou-hyun, Yonhap reported, without giving further details.

Kim, a former deputy national security adviser and career diplomat, was appointed in May 2022 after Yoon’s election victory.
