North Korea Sends Warning To U.S.

( President Donald Trump’s historic progress towards peace with North Korea is being slowly undone by the Biden administration already. That was made clear this week when the sister of North Korean dictator, Kim Yo Jong, warned the United States against any military intervention against the country in coordination with South Korea,

Kim said that ongoing military drills at the border in South Korea should come to an end, and said that the United States should stop “causing a stink.”

“We take this opportunity to warn the new U.S. administration trying hard to give off powder smell in our land,” the statement said, which was published by the state-run news agency KCNA.

“If it wants to sleep in peace for coming four years, it had better refrain from causing a stink at its first step,” Kim added.

It was the first public statement released by the isolationist communist country since President Joe Biden entered the White House in January and was published just one day before the new U.S. Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, and the new Defense Secretary, Lloyd Austin, were due to arrive in Seoul.

The statement was very clearly an indication from North Korea that the United States should avoid considering military intervention or other intimidation tactics during the upcoming talks with South Korea.

“War drills and hostility can never go with dialogue and cooperation,” Kim Yo Jong said.

Remember the day when President Donald Trump put his money where his mouth is and went straight to North Korea to talk it out?

Speaking in Tokyo, Secretary Blinken said that he was aware of the comments but that he was more interested in listening to America’s allies.

A review of policy towards North Korea is expected to be completed sometime in March or April, but Blinken said that Washington is still considering putting more pressure on North Korea.

Blinken also threatened North Korea, saying that until Kim’s statement, their discussion was primarily focusing on “The Quad.”

“Now Kim’s statement will be central to discussions,” he added.

President Donald Trump famously engaged with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un through a series of letters and meetings in the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea, but talks had broken down before the presidential campaign.

Now it’s up to President Biden to re-engage those talks, and so far, all his administration has done is threaten North Korea.
