North Korean leader Kim’s sister tells South Korean president to ‘shut up’

Kim Yo Jong, sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, told South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol to “shut up”, reiterating his offer of economic aid in exchange for nuclear disarmament.

South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol brought up the economic aid offer he made for the first time in May on Wednesday.

Kim Yo Jong commented on Yoon’s offer in a statement published in the North Korean state news agency KCNA. Kim Yo Jong said, “It would be more appropriate for his image to shut up rather than talk nonsense because he has nothing better to say.”

Noting that Yoon was “really simple and still childish” because he thought he could cooperate economically in exchange for North Korea’s honor and nuclear weapons, Kim said, “No one trades cornbread for their fate.”

The reaction to Kim Yo Jong’s statements came from South Korean Unification Minister Kwon Young-se. Speaking at the parliamentary session, Kwon described Kim’s comments as “very disrespectful and inappropriate”.

The Unification Minister expressed regret over the rejection of a proposal to revive the North Korean economy in exchange for giving up nuclear weapons and harsh criticism of the president.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s sister has been receiving backlash in South Korea in recent years. Some experts say his brother is playing the “bad cop” against Kim Jong Un’s more moderate statements.
