The highly effective sister of North Korean chief Kim Jong Un has described South Korea’s president and authorities as “idiots” and a “faithful dog” of the United States, state media reported Thursday.
Kim Yo Jong’s vitriol follows Seoul this week saying it was contemplating contemporary unilateral sanctions on the North over current missile checks, together with an intercontinental ballistic missile launch final week.
“This disgusting act shows more clearly that the south Korean group is a ‘faithful dog’ and stooge of the US,” Kim mentioned in a press release carried by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
“I wonder what ‘sanctions’ the south Korean group, no more than a running wild dog on a bone given by the US, impudently impose on the DPRK,” she mentioned, utilizing the acronym of the North’s official title. “What a spectacle sight!”
Pyongyang all the time refers to South Korea with a lowercase “s”, an obvious signal of disrespect.
Kim accused South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol of making a “dangerous situation” and in contrast him unfavourably to his extra dovish predecessor Moon Jae-in, below whom, she mentioned, Seoul “had not been our target”.
“I wonder why the south Korean people still remain a passive onlooker to such acts of the ‘government’ of Yoon Suk Yeol and other idiots,” she mentioned.
North Korea tends to concern statements earlier than finishing up a provocation, Professor Yang Moo-jin of the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul mentioned, including: “There may be an armed demonstration against South Korea and the United States soon.”
Friday’s ICBM launch was the most recent in a record-breaking blitz of current Pyongyang launches, and officers and analysts in Seoul and Washington have warned they may culminate in a seventh nuclear take a look at.
North Korea has a protracted historical past of vibrant private assaults towards international leaders, and analysts have typically famous the nation’s failure to make use of “diplomatic language”.
“Basically, they can’t speak well of the countries they consider enemies,” mentioned Go Myong-hyun, a researcher on the Asan Institute for Policy Studies.
Before US President Joe Biden was nominated as a candidate, Pyongyang referred to as him “a rabid dog” that “must be beaten to death with a stick” and famously referred to his predecessor Donald Trump as a “mentally deranged US dotard”.
