“The question is why the enemy launched such war drills near the border out of suicidal frenzy, which will lead to a terrible disaster for them,” Kim Yo Jong said in a statement carried by state media.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s sister has warned of tough military action, calling South Korea’s recent front-line live-fire drills “suicidal.” Kim Yo Jong’s warning comes after South Korea resumed live-fire drills near its tense land and sea borders with North Korea over the past two weeks. The exercises were the first of their kind since South Korea suspended a 2018 agreement with the North aimed at easing front-line military tensions in June.

Kim Yo Jong said in a statement carried by state media that the question is why the enemy launched such war drills near the border out of a suicidal frenzy that would cost them a terrible disaster. She accused South Korea’s conservative government of deliberately raising tensions to avoid a domestic political crisis. She said the risk of the South Korean drills was obvious to all as they took place amid a “touch-and-go situation” established after the United States, South Korea and Japan recently held a new trilateral military exercise, which North Korea views as a security threat.

If it is judged according to our criteria that they have violated (North Korea’s) sovereignty and committed an act tantamount to a declaration of war, our armed forces will immediately carry out their mission and duty assigned to them by the (North Korean) constitution. Koo Byungsam, a spokesman for South Korea’s Unification Ministry, described Kim’s statement as an attempt to trigger internal divisions in South Korea, saying North Korea should first focus on its own human rights violations and international isolation due to its nuclear program.
