North Korea accuses US, South Korea of assassination attempt

North Korea accuses US, South Korea of assassination attempt

Placing the level of pressure needed to force Kim Jong-un to give up his nuclear weapons program risks the North Korean regime collapsing, leading to refugee flows and potentially a unified Korea allied with the United States, he said.

In a statement carried on state media, North Korea's Ministry of State Security said it will "ferret out and mercilessly destroy" the "terrorists" in the CIA and South Korean intelligence agency responsible for targeting its supreme leadership.

The North Korean statement, carried by the official Korean Central News Agency - which often issues shrill, bellicose threats and accusations against the United States and South Korea - said the foreign intelligence agencies "infiltrated" North Korea "to commit state-sponsored terrorism".

The report claimed that USA officials bribed the North Korean citizen, who it called "human scum", with $750,000 in payments to assassinate Kim using biochemical substances.

Wizards Fall to Celtics in Game 5 of Semifinals
The Boston Celtics are averaging 107.8 points on 46.5 percent shooting and allowing 104.3 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Washington , which dominated the first quarter for most of the series , won both games at home by average of 23 points.

Officials at South Korea's National Intelligence Service weren't immediately reachable for comment. The Kim regime has been testing ballistic missiles in recent days, while the USA began installing a defense system in South Korea that would ideally destroy missiles launched from the North before they hit their intended target.

The legislation - which needs Senate approval before being sent to President Trump to sign into law - aims to expands sanctions to deter North Korea's nuclear weapons program, targets North Korean shipping and use of worldwide ports, and requires the administration to determine whether North Korea is a state sponsor of terrorism.

Neither the Central Intelligence Agency nor the NIS has commented on the claims. "Korean-style anti-terrorist attack will be commenced from this moment to sweep away the intelligence and plot-breeding organizations of the US imperialists and the puppet clique". South Korea and Malaysia say it was an assassination carried out by the North.

This "human scum Kim" agreed to commit "assassination by use of biochemical substances including radioactive substance and nano poisonous substance".

The tools used to pull off this attack were likely from an NSA toolset leaked by the Shadow Brokers. Spain's Telefonica, a global broadband and telecommunications company, was among the companies hit.

Earlier this year, Seoul accused Pyongyang of using the chemical war agent VX to assassinate Kim Jong Un's exiled half-brother at Kuala Lumpur's airport, which led to calls in the usa to relist the North as a state sponsor of terrorism.

On Monday, President Donald Trump admitted that he'd be "honored" to meet with the North Korean dictator.

North Korea warned this week that USA hostility had brought the region to the brink of nuclear war.

Meanwhile, U.S. forces continue routine training with South Korea's military, including recently sending an American naval strike group to the Korean peninsula.
