“Idiots”, “dogs”, “minions”: violent diatribe of the sister of Kim Jong-un against Seoul


SEOUL | The sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Kim Yo Jong, on Thursday launched a volley of insults against the South Korean president and his government, calling them “idiots” and “loyal dogs and minions” of the United States. 

The sweeping statements come after South Korea's foreign ministry said it was considering imposing new unilateral sanctions against Pyongyang over its recent ballistic missile tests.

“This disgusting act clearly shows that the South Korean group is a loyal dog and a stooge of the United States”, vituperated Kim Yo Jong in a press release.

She accused South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol of creating a “dangerous situation” and compared him unfavorably to his predecessor Moon Jae-in, more inclined towards dialogue with the North and under which, she said, Seoul “was not our target”.

“I wonder why the South Korean people remain a passive spectator in the face of to such acts of the “government” of Yoon Suk Yeol and other idiots,” added Kim Yo Jong, who is not only Kim Jong-un's sister but also a key political adviser.
