North Korean leader’s sister warns US of ‘deadlier security crisis’
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s sister yesterday warned the United States it was facing a “deadlier security crisis” as Washington urges the United Nations to condemn North Korea’s latest ICBM test.
Kim Yo Jong’s warning came hours after US Ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield announced at an emergency UN Security Council meeting that her country would circulate a proposed presidential statement detailing North Korea’s banned missile tests and other destabilizing activities are condemned.
After the meeting, the US ambassador also read a statement from 14 countries supporting measures to limit North Korea’s progress on its weapons programs.
Kim Yo Jong, who is the second most influential person in North Korea after her brother, attacked the United States for issuing what she described as a “disgusting joint statement with mobs like Britain, France, Australia, Japan and South Korea.”
Kim likened the United States to “a dog barking in fear.” She said North Korea would view the US-led statement as “a flagrant violation of our sovereignty and a serious political provocation.”
“The United States should know that no matter how hard they (North Korea) try to disarm, they can never deny (North Korea) their right to self-defense, and the more they step up their hostile moves (North Korea), I found myself facing one more deadlier security crisis.” Due to the launch of its ICBM on Friday, an emergency meeting was held at the UN Security Council as part of what experts say is an attempt to modernize its nuclear arsenal and its influence and ability to pressure diplomacy going forward , to increase.
During the UN Security Council meeting, the United States and its allies harshly criticized the missile launch and called for measures to curb North Korea’s missile and nuclear programs.
However, Russia and China, which enjoy the power of veto (veto) in the UN Security Council, resisted any pressure and new sanctions against North Korea. In May, the two countries resisted a US-led attempt to tighten sanctions on North Korea over its ballistic missile tests banned by UN Security Council resolutions.
