North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s sister says US should stop ‘foolish act’ that risks security

North Korea’s Kim Yo Jong, sister of leader Kim Jong Un, conveyed on Monday that the United States should not care about what she named as a “foolish act” that could put its safety at risk, state media KCNA reported. Ms Kim made her remarks after White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said the United States remains stuck with the issue that North Korea would proceed with another intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) test, after it fired an ICBM off its east coast last week. “The United States should halt a foolish act that could put its safety at risk by provoking us,” Ms Kim was quoted saying.

She denied US calls for unworthy conversations and said the United States is wrong if it thinks that North Korea’s disarmament was possible. “The United States is being delusional if it believed that it could halt our growth and achieve irreversible disarmament by temporarily stopping collaborative military drills, deployment of strategic assets or relaxing of sanctions,” Ms Kim said. North Korea has in just these days enforced allegations on American spy planes of flying over its unique economic zone, criticised a recent visit to South Korea by an American nuclear-powered cruise missile submarine, and pledged to take further steps in response.
