North Korea has warned the US to stay out of the inter-Korean affairs if they want the upcoming presidential election to go smoothly.

According to the state news agency KCNA, an official in North Korea’s foreign ministry told the US to "hold its tongue" and focus on its own problems unless it wants to "experience a hair-raiser".

"If the US pokes its nose into others' affairs with careless remarks, far from minding its internal affairs, at a time when its political situation is in the worst-ever confusion, it may encounter an unpleasant thing hard to deal with," Kwon Jong Gun added.

It comes as the US State Department expressed disappointment at North Korea's decision to suspend communication hotlines with South Korea.
