Kim Yo Jong Releases Statement

Date: 30/03/2021 | Source: Naenara (En) | Read original version at source

Kim Yo Jong, deputy-director of the Information and Publicity Department of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, issued the following statement on March 30:

Whenever I hear rhetoric from south Korea beyond the demarcation line, I am struck speechless, especially when the south Korean chief executive personally utters something about us over a mike before the audience.

His speech made at the so-called "ceremony for commemorating the day of defending the West Sea" on March 26 again astonished the people of the DPRK.

Over our test-fire of new-type tactical guided missiles, he said: "I am well aware that all of you deeply worry about the recent test-fire of missiles by the north. It is high time that the south, the north and the US all have to endeavour to do things for dialogue. Things causing difficulty to creating atmosphere for dialogue are something truly undesirable."

He meant that the step taken by us to bolster the capabilities for national defence, the exercise of the legitimate sovereign right pertaining to the DPRK, has aroused apprehension among the south Koreans and caused trouble and obstacle to the efforts to create the atmosphere favourable for dialogue.

This is the height of effrontery.

We still clearly remember what the south Korean chief executive said during his visit to the Defense Science Institute of south Korea on July 23, 2020.

He said: "I was greatly excited to see the giant structure of missile and to see it accurately hitting the target in the sea without the slightest deviation. I felt really reassured to see the ultra-modern strategic weapons equipped with the world's highest accuracy level and powerful destructive power. Now we have reached the point of developing ballistic missiles with a firing range and which are loadable with warhead with a weight of the world's highest level enough to defend peace of the Korean peninsula."

This "speech" stands a striking contrast to the commemorative speech a few days ago.

He meant the test-fire of ballistic missiles conducted by the Defence Science Institute of south Korea is for peace and dialogue in the Korean peninsula but that conducted by the Academy of Defence Science of the DPRK is something undesirable that arouses serious concern among the people in the south and chills the atmosphere for dialogue. We can hardly repress astonishment at his shamelessness.

He doesn't have even the elementary logic and face.

Such illogical and brazen-faced behaviour of south Korea is exactly the same as the gangster-like logic of the US faulting the right of the DPRK to self-defence as a violation of the UN "resolutions" and "threats" to the international community.

He cannot feel sorry for being "praised" as a parrot raised by America.

This could be what is described as self-contradictory and being caught in one's own trap.

He is advised to think sometimes about how he is viewed by the world.
