Religious leaders in South Korea extended condolences to the North over the death of Kim Jong-il this week, saying that religious exchanges across the border should continue, reports ucanews.com.

Archbishop Hyginus Kim Hee-joong of Gwangju told journalists yesterday that "Kim's death should not deteriorate the strained relations" between North and South.

He added that he hoped both governments would "take a step back" and seek reconciliation, peace and co-existence.

Kim Jong-il died over the weekend of an apparent heart attack, according to North Korea's official news agency.

A representative of the Korean Bishops' Committee for the Reconciliation of the Korean People said yesterday that it would continue "its humanitarian aid to the North Korean people" and expressing worries that the death of Kim Jong-ill could cause more suffering for them.
