(Seoul) The influential sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has launched an attack on the United States and South Korea, according to a statement released by the official daily Rodong Sinmun on Tuesday, as the new American secretaries of defense and foreign affairs begin their visit to Tokyo and Seoul. .
The United States and South Korea launched joint military exercises last week and Rodong Sinmun, quoted by South Korean news agency Yonhap, reported a statement in which Kim Yo Jong advises the “new American administration” to “spread the dry smell over our country”.
“If you want to sleep peacefully for the next four years (duration of an American presidential decree, editor’s note), it is best not to do anything that will make you sleepy,” Mr said.To me According to Kido, Rodang Sinmun.
Four months after the election of Joe Biden after Donald Trump, this is the first clear indication of a new American president on behalf of this nuclear-armed country.
Donald Trump’s distinctive foreign policy led to an exchange of insults and war threats with Kim Jong-un, which later marked the culmination of an extraordinary diplomatic honeymoon between the two leaders.
These relations did not ultimately lead to progress towards North Korea’s nuclear disarmament, subject to multiple international sanctions due to its nuclear program.
Negotiations were held by South Korean President Moon Jae-in, but relations between Seoul and Pyongyang have deteriorated sharply since the failure of the Kim-Trump summit in Hanoi in February 2019.
More than 28,500 U.S. military personnel were stationed in South Korea to defend themselves from the attack, and computer simulated military maneuvers were launched last week by the Seoul and Washington military alliance.
North Korea has condemned such training, saying it was in preparation for aggression. “The South Korean government has once again chosen the ‘War March’ and the ‘Crisis March’,” Kim Yo-jong said in a statement.
