Kim Yo Jong likens US to ‘scared dog’ for pushing criticism of ICBM test at UN

North Korean leader’s sister pledges ‘deadlier’ security crisis if the US doesn’t stop ‘obsessing’ over DPRK activities

The North Korean leader’s powerful sister Kim Yo Jong likened the U.S. to a “scared barking dog” after it convened a U.N. Security Council (UNSC) and condemned the North’s latest intercontinental ballistic missile test (ICBM) on Tuesday.

Following the meeting, the U.S. and 13 other countries presented a joint statement calling for punitive action from the Security Council and urging Pyongyang to “abandon its unlawful weapons programs in a complete, verifiable and irreversible manner.”
