North Korea is screening its neighbor’s calls.

Officials in South Korea have been phoning the hermit kingdom every day for the last year — to no avail, a report said on Wednesday.

Seoul uses a cross-border communication line to ring up Pyongyang at about 9 a.m. each work day, according to the South Korean Yonhap News Agency.

But all the calls have gone unanswered, the report said.

The North vowed to cut off all communication with the South last year. It even blew up an inter-Korean liaison office in its border city of Kaesong, in fury over anti-Pyongyang leaflets floating in from the South, according to the report.

However, the communication line set up in the South’s border village of Panmunjom remains active, Yonhap reported.

“Regardless of what North Korea’s response is, we continue to send a signal at 9 a.m. every day as part of the officer’s basic duties and based on the view that the channel for the two Koreas must remain open,” a unification ministry official told the outlet.
