The influential sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has made insult-laden threats against South Korea for considering unilateral sanctions on the North.
Kim sister threatens Seoul over sanctions
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s influential sister has threatened South Korea for considering unilateral sanctions on the North, calling its new president and his government “idiots” and “a running wild dog gnawing on a bone given by the US”.
Kim Yo-jong’s diatribe came two days after South Korea’s Foreign Ministry said it was reviewing additional unilateral sanctions on North Korea over its recent barrage of missile tests.
The ministry said it would also consider sanctions and clampdowns on North Korea’s alleged cyber attacks – a new key source of funding for its weapons program – if the North conducts a major provocation such as a nuclear test.
“I wonder what ‘sanctions’ the South Korean group, no more than a running wild dog gnawing on a bone given by the US, impudently impose on North Korea,” Yo-jong said in a statement carried by state media.
