SEOUL, Nov 24 – According to KCNA, North Korea condemned South Korea’s efforts on Thursday to impose additional sanctions on Pyongyang in response to Pyongyang’s recent missile launches. North Korea also referred to South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol and his administration as “idiots” for parroting the United States’ rhetoric.
Kim Yo Jong, the influential sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, commented in a statement that KCNA reported. In the statement, she warned that sanctions and pressure will contribute to the North’s “hostility and wrath.”
On Tuesday, the South Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that it was evaluating independent measures against Pyongyang. It was stated that restrictions on the cyber industry were among those being discussed in the event that North Korea continued with its plans to conduct a nuclear test.
This year has seen a record-breaking number of ballistic missile tests undertaken by North Korea. Washington has been warning for months that North Korea could at any moment perform a nuclear bomb test, which would be the first one since 2017.
“If they think that they can escape from the present dangerous situation through sanctions,’ they must be idiots as they do not know how to live in peace and comfort,” Kim Yo Jong said in the statement, calling Yoon and his government a “running wild dog” with a bone given by the United States. Kim Yo Jong compared Yoon and his government to a “running wild dog” with a bone.
The Unification Ministry of South Korea, which is in charge of handling inter-Korean matters, has stated in response to the “deplorable” insults made about the leader of South Korea.
“We express our deep regret over (the North’s) attitude of trying to shift the blame on us…when North Korea’s repeated missile provocations caused the current tension on the Korean Peninsula,” the ministry said. “We express our deep regret over (the North’s) attitude of trying to shift the blame on us.”
The United States of America has requested that the United Nations Security Council speak with one voice in condemning North Korea for its latest missile launches. This is because the 15-member council has been divided in recent years about how to approach Pyongyang.
Even though China and Russia supported more stringent sanctions in the aftermath of Pyongyang’s most recent nuclear test in 2017, in May, they cast a veto against a United States-led push for additional United Nations sanctions over Pyongyang’s renewed missile launches.
