Kim Yo Jong, deputy department director of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, issued the following statement on April 2:
The south Korean Defense Minister on April 1 talked about a “preemptive strike” on the DPRK in a fit of anti-DPRK confrontation hysteria.
He dared mention the “preemptive strike” at a nuclear-armed state in his show of reckless bravery which will never be beneficial to south Korea either.
This human waste is a maniac engrossed in the mindset of confrontation with his fellow countrymen in the north.
His reckless and intemperate rhetoric about the “preemptive strike” has further worsened inter-Korean relations and the military tensions on the Korean peninsula.
Now we cannot but take his confrontation frenzy seriously and reconsider a lot of things.
South Korea may face a serious threat owing to the reckless remarks made by its Defence Minister.
As long as the south Korean military revealed its intent to cause provocative irritation of serious level and escalate a showdown against the DPRK, I will give a serious warning upon authorization.
We will reconsider a lot of things concerning south Korea.
South Korea should discipline itself if it wants to stave off disaster.
I hope I don’t hear him blustering again.
