In a statement, the famous sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un labeled the South Korean defense minister a “scum-like guy” for expressing his support for preemptive strikes against the North.
The insult came with a strict warning that South Korea in this case may face a really “significant military threat“.
Kim Yo Jong’s comments came at a time when the tensions in the Korean Peninsula have skyrocketed after multiple missiles tests that may also lead to the first North Korean Nuclear test after 5 years.
This statement by the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un sends a clear message that her country will follow a more confrontational approach with South Korea.
North Korea’s intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) test on March 24 was a violation of the country’s four-year ban on large-scale weapons testing.
