Kim Yo Jong calls on South Koreans to turn against ‘idiot’ Yoon ‘regime’

Seoul should stop following Washington, DPRK leader's sister says in latest statement brushing off sanctions threat

South Koreans should turn against their president and give up cooperation with the U.S. on sanctions against North Korea, sister of the DPRK leader Kim Yo Jong suggested in a new statement released by state media Thursday.

Kim called South Korea a U.S. “stooge” and “no more than a stray dog gnawing at a bone given by the United States,” according to the state-run Voice of Korea, echoing comments she made two days earlier calling Washington a “scared barking dog” after convening a Security Council meeting to condemn DPRK weapons tests.
