North Korean diplomat threatens South Korea
Tuesday 19 February 2013
A North Korean official has threatened South Korea with “final destruction” during a debate at the UN Conference on Disarmament.
“As the saying goes, a new-born puppy knows no fear of a tiger. South Korea’s erratic behaviour would only herald its final destruction,” Jon Yong Ryong, North Korean diplomat, told the meeting. Without specifically referring the North’s recent nuclear test, Mr Jon said North Korea had recently taken a “resolute step for self-defence”.
His comments drew criticism from other nations, including South Korea and Britain.
