North Korea calls Pelosi a ‘destroyer of international peace’

Seoul, South Korea (AP) — North Korea on Saturday called US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi the “worst destroyer of international peace and stability” for stoking anti-North Korea sentiment during her Asian tour earlier this week. And accused of provoking China.

Pelosi visited South Korea after visiting Taiwan, which prompted China to launch military exercises, including missile strike training in waters near the self-ruled island. China sees Taiwan as part of its territory that will be annexed by force if necessary.

While in South Korea, Pelosi visited a border area with North Korea and discussed the North’s nuclear program with the Speaker of the South Korean National Assembly, Kim Jin-pyo. According to Kim, the two agreed to support their governments’ pressure for denuclearization and peace on the Korean peninsula based on strong, expanded resistance against the North and diplomacy.

Joe Yong-sam, director general of North Korea’s Foreign Ministry’s Department of Press and Information Affairs, criticized Pelosi’s visit to the border on Saturday and discussions of North Korean resistance.

“Pelosi, who had come under reasonable criticism of China for destroying regional peace and stability by visiting Taiwan, created an atmosphere of confrontation with North Korea during her stay in South Korea”, said Joe. said in a statement made by the media. ,

Calling Pelosi “the worst destroyer of international peace and stability”, Joe argued that Pelosi’s behavior in South Korea clearly showed the Biden administration’s hostile policy toward North Korea.

“It would be a fatal mistake for her to think that she might be free on the Korean peninsula,” warned Joe. Wherever she went, America would have to pay dearly for all the sources of trouble she created.

Pelosi’s visit to the joint security area on the Korean border on Thursday made her the highest-profile American to visit there since President Donald Trump went for a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in 2019.

Located inside the world’s strongest border, the region is jointly controlled by the US-led United Nations Command and North Korea. US presidents and other top officials have previously traveled to the region to reaffirm their security commitment to South Korea in a time of hostility with North Korea.

During his JSA visit, Pelosi did not make any strong public statements against North Korea. He uploaded several photos from the JSA on Twitter and wrote: “We express our gratitude to Congress and the nation for the patriotic service of our soldiers, who stand as watchdogs of democracy on the Korean Peninsula.”

Pelosi said in a separate statement that she and Kim, the South Korean parliamentary speaker, reaffirmed our commitment to “advance security for the US-Korea alliance, strengthen our supply chain, and increase trade and investment that will support the US-Korea alliance.” Beneficial for both our countries.”

Tensions remain on the Korean peninsula after North Korea’s intensified missile tests earlier this year. US and South Korean officials said North Korea is ready to conduct its first nuclear test in five years.

North Korea has said it will not return to nuclear disarmament talks and will instead focus on expanding its nuclear program until the United States abandons its hostile policies, US-led international sanctions on the North and the South. In an apparent reference to its regular military exercises with Korea.

After Pelosi visited Taiwan and reaffirmed Washington’s commitment to defend democracy on the self-ruled island, North Korea issued a statement Wednesday rebuking the US and backing China, its main ally and biggest ally .

Pelosi was the first House Speaker to visit Taiwan in 25 years.
