Kim Jong Un's Sister Threatens Military Action Against South Korea




The sister of North Korea leader Kim Jong Un bashed South Korea and has threatened military action after a recent decline in relations.

Kim Yo Jong took purpose at the inter-Korean liaison office within the border city of Kaesong, promising a “tragic scene” after she accused Seoul of no longer doing sufficient to stop an anti-Pyongyang leaflet campaign, calling the liaison office “vain (Useless).” Activists regularly float balloons into North Korea wearing leaflets that criticize the leadership, a pass that usually garners a furious response.

“By exercising my strength authorized by the very best chief, our birthday celebration and the state, I gave an training to the hands of the branch in rate of the affairs with [the] enemy to decisively perform the subsequent action,” she said in a declaration carried through North Korean's state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

"Before long, a tragic scene of the useless North-South joint liaison office completely collapsed would be seen.”

Kim Yo Jong took a harsh stance and called defectors who helped with the leaflet campaign “human scum” and “mongrel dogs.”

In reaction to North Korea’s anger over the leaflets, South Korea’s government promised to press charges against defector groups that have been carrying out border protests. South Korea also said it might push new legal guidelines to ban activists from flying the leaflets across the border, though some fear that President Moon Jae-in is extra worried about a dream of reunification than the protection of his country.

Kim Yo Jong now serves as the Workers’ Party’s Central Committee first vice department director, an elevated function that presents her greater power over the party and, by using extension, the country. When her brother Kim Jong Un disappeared from the public eye in April, rumors circulated that Kim Yo Jong could potentially replace him as leader of the country.

While her brother has made public appearances seeing that then, Kim Yo Jong has taken a more prominent place in public dealings. She recently criticized South Korea, maintaining the North might cut off all government and military communique and threatened to abandon the peace agreement reached via their leaders in 2018.


The drop in relations between North and South Korea comes at a time when denuclearization talks between Kim Jong Un and President Trump have stalled.



North Korea marked its two-12 months anniversary of the first summit between Kim Jong Un and President Trump by means of vowing to accumulate its defense force to counter what it perceives as threats from the United States.

Foreign Minister Ri Son Gwon also advised Seoul to drop “nonsensical” talk approximately denuclearization.

“The query is whether there will be a need to preserve holding fingers shaken in Singapore, as we see that there's not anything of factual development to be made inside the DPRK-U.S. [Democratic People's Republic of Korea-U.S.] family members really through retaining private relations between our supreme leadership and the U.S. President,” Ri became quoted as saying.

“Never again will we provide the U.S. Chief executive with another package to be used for [political] achievements without receiving any returns,” he added.

“Nothing is greater hypocritical than an empty promise.”
