[Asia News Communication = Reporter Reakkana] The powerful sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un harshly criticized South Korea's military for closely tracking its military parade believed to have taken place in Pyongyang to celebrate a rare party congress.
"What is weird is that the joint chiefs of staff of South Korea made a senseless statement that they captured the north opening a military parade at midnight on Jan. 10 and they are in the middle of making precision tracking," Kim Yo-jong was quoted as saying in a statement released by the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on Wednesday."They are the idiot and top the world's list in misbehavior as they are only keen on things provoking world laughter," she added.
Kim added that the North is only holding a military parade in the capital city and not conducting any military exercises "targeting anybody nor launch of anything."She warned the South Korean authorities, saying "all these things must surely be reckoned up in the future." Given how she was referred to in the statement, Kim appears to have been demoted to "vice department director" of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party from her previous position as first vice department director.
