SEOUL (Reuters) -North Korea opposes war but would use nuclear weapons if South Korea attacked, Kim Yo Jong, the powerful sister of leader Kim Jong Un, said on Tuesday, in a warning that analysts said is probably aimed at the South’s incoming conservative president.
Kim Yo Jong, a senior official in the government and ruling party, said it was a “very big mistake” for South Korea’s minister of defence to make recent remarks discussing attacks on the North, state news agency KCNA reported.
South Korean Defence Minister Suh Wook had said on Friday that his country’s military has a variety of missiles with significantly improved range, accuracy and power, with “the ability to accurately and quickly hit any target in North Korea.”
I have warned before of the danger of other tyrants drawing strength from tyrant Putin. North Korea is a good example. It sees that Putin has got away with it. America and Europe have effectively done little. This is the long term damage of letting this tyrant get a hold on the world. The church was sleeping. Now we are in a dangerous position. Watch out for other tyrants to appear. They sense that this is their time. “Watch and pray.”
