North Korea Demands Again!
North Korea demands would-be assassins of Kim Jong-Un be handed over to the isolated country. Last week the country said that in 2014 the CIA and South Korea’s National intelligence Service conspired to assassinate the leader with a biochemical weapon.
North Korea Gives Vivid Detail
The North Korean Ministry of State Security described how US and South Korean officials “corrupted and bribed” a North Korea citizen working in Russia. The plan suggested that the agent would return home to North Korea, plan around a public event, then use a type of poisonous substance on top regime officials. Although it cannot be confirmed it was suggested that Pyongyang provide satellite communication equipment and money to this possible would-be-killer. The US, according to this account, provided a biochemical substance which is a delayed-action radioactive or “nano poisonous” gas.
One of the interesting facts about this alleged attack was that North Korea did not offer any evidence or specifics on how the alleged plot was stopped. They said the suspect was identified as having the last name, Kim. The regime also claimed a man surnamed “Han” showed Kim how to enlist accomplices. Supposedly “these terrorists then plotted and planned in detail for the use of biochemical substances which included radioactive and poisonous substances as the means of assassination,” according to the vice foreign minister. He went on to say, “These biochemical substances were to be provided with the assistance of the CIA…while the South Korean Intelligence Service was going to provide necessary support and funding for this attempt at assassination on our supreme leader.”
South Korean officials called the claim “groundless.” The CIA declined to comment, as is customary.
North Korea, refusing to let this go, said just last week that the US and South Korea should “execute” those involved in the purported plot. Last week they demanded that the two countries hand over the “terror suspects.” No details were included about who the suspects are and how many are free and on the run.
