Kim Jong-un identifies US root cause of instability in the Korean Peninsula – World – News


North Korean leader Kim Jong-un named the United States “the main cause” of instability on the Korean Peninsula on Monday. He said this during a speech on the occasion of the opening of the Defense Development Review. The AFP agency informed about it on Tuesday, referring to the local state media.

According to Kim Jong-un, the development of weapons in his country is necessary in view of US hostile policy and armaments on the South Korean side.

The administration of US President Joe Biden has repeatedly stated that it has no hostile intentions towards the DPRK. “I am very curious if there are people or countries who believe that. Given their actions, there is no reason to believe that they are not hostile, “said Kim Jong-un, according to the official North Korean agency KCNA.

The North Korean leader spoke on Monday at a show of the DPRK’s defense development entitled “Self-Defense-2021”. According to the AP agency, it was an event on the occasion of the celebrations of the 76th anniversary of the founding of the ruling Korean Labor Party. The South Korean media reported that the exhibition was the first event of its kind in the DPRK.

Kim’s remarks came after Pyongyang fired a new type of long-range guided missile, ballistic missiles straight from the train, in recent weeks, or successfully tested the new Hwasong-8 hypersonic missile. At the same time, UN resolutions prohibit North Korea from conducting tests of ballistic missiles, which, depending on their design, could also carry a nuclear warhead. In addition, severe international sanctions have been imposed on this isolated country for its nuclear program.

In recent months, the United States has repeatedly proposed a meeting with North Korean officials, which they say can take place anywhere and anywhere. The aim should be to achieve denuclearization. However, Kim Jong-un called the statements a “mask” to cover up the lies and hostilities of the United States. According to him, it is also a continuation of the hostile policy of the previous US government.

Negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang have been suspended since February 2019, when Kim Jong-un’s second summit with then-White House chief Donald Trump in Vietnam failed due to disagreement over a possible easing of US sanctions against the DPRK.
