North Korea has accused the United States and South Korea’s intelligence agencies of planning to assassinate Kim Jong Un.
North Korea’s state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) claims there was a “hideous terrorists’ group” directed by CIA and South Korean spies that “ideologically corrupted” a North Korean man and paid him over $20,000 to carry out a “biochemical substance” attack.
“They hatched a plot of letting human scum … commit bomb terrorism targeting the supreme leadership during events at the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun and at [the] military parade and public procession after his return home,” KCNA said, according to Reuters.
“They told him that assassination by use of biochemical substances including radioactive substance and nano poisonous substance is the best method that does not require access to the target. Their lethal results will appear after six or twelve months.”
The attack oddly resembles the American comedy, “The Interview,” in which a character tries to poison Kim Jong Un with a biochemical substance. Still, the country fully believes the plan exists and is taking it very seriously. North Korea’s Ministry of State Security said the plot goes “beyond the limits.”
“Criminals going hell-bent to realize such a pipe dream cannot survive on this land even a moment,” KCNA said.
The U.S. House of Representatives recently voted to impose new sanctions on North Korea to prevent them from issuing their sixth nuclear test.
As a result of North Korea’s lack of cooperation, President Trump, without hesitation, has already ordered a nuclear-powered submarine and the USS Carl Vinson carrier strike group to Korean waters. The United States also relies on the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense system in South Korea.
