Pyongyang: North Korea has castigated Trump’s move of recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital calling him a “dotard” in its statement released on state media today.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has been threatening the US of carrying out Missile attacks and nuclear threats which is causing ripples of prevailing tensions among the two countries and worsening its relations.
Now North Korea has come to take sides along with other protesting countries against Trump’s decision of recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, calling his move as “reckless, wicked act”.
North Korea’s Foreign Ministry spokesman was quoted saying by the state-run KCNA news agency as, “Considering the fact that the mentally deranged dotard openly called for the total destruction of a sovereign state at the United Nations, this action is not so surprising.”
Adding, “But, this move clearly shows to the whole world who is the destroyer of world peace and security, pariah and rogue in the international community.”
Trump’s recent Jerusalem move along with relocating US embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv has sparked huge criticism and anger among the Muslim Nations throughout the world along with their disapproval from the US allies.
Warning North Korea, Trump had earlier boldly declared a war to “totally destroy North Korea” if US has to defend itself or its allies during the UN General Assembly.
While addressing his speech Trump had called his counterpart Kim as a “Rocket Man”.
Days after Trump’s comment, Kim today has responded calling Trump as a ‘dotard’ in its statement.
North Korea has “strongly condemned” the US move to recognizing Jerusalem as capital, along with expressing North Korea’s “firm support and solidarity for Palestinians and Arab peoples struggling to win their legitimate rights”, as stated by KCNA statement.
“The US will be held accountable for all consequences from this reckless, wicked act,” said AFP on December 9, 2017, as reported in Malaysian Insight.
