Seoul, Apr 10 (EFE).- North Korea has slammed the United States and its Western allies for Russia sanctions and called President Joe Biden “an old man in his senility.”
The state-run Korean Central News Agency Sunday published a commentary by Kim Myong Chol on the Ukraine-Russia conflict, saying security issues had suddenly turned “into a human rights issue” for the US and the West.
“The US and the West media are splashed with horrible headlines like ‘group slaughter’ and ‘massacre of civilians’ while their politicians tout ‘punishment of war criminal’ and call for ratcheting up sanctions and offering arms assistance,” read the commentary.
It said whatever was happening in Ukraine was the product of a political-motivated plot planned to bring the “collapse” of Russia and its government.
It said the US and the western countries were “the mastermind of aggression who caused violence, war, humanitarian disaster and instability in different parts of the world including former Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, and Iraq and mercilessly murdered millions of innocent civilians.”
The commentary notes that Biden’s comments on the war showed that “there is a problem in his intellectual faculty and that his reckless remarks are just a show of imprudence of an old man in his senility.”
“Calling the head of a sovereign state a war criminal and a murderous dictator for no justifiable and confirmed reason and to assert he must be ousted from power is an insult to the other nation and clear infringement of sovereignty,” the commentary noted.
It referred to Biden’s remarks in the Polish capital on Mar.26, calling for the ouster of Russian Vladimir Putin.
“Perhaps, the trouble was caused by him reading a script which his aides prepared beforehand, worrying about the president known for his repeated slip of tongue,” said the commentary.
“Gloomy, it seems, is the future of the US with such a feeble man in power.”
North Korea is under sanctions from the international community for its nuclear and missile programs.
Pyongyang accelerated its weapons tests this year, prompting Washington to increase pressure on the regime led by Kim Jong-un.
However, Washington has left the door for talks ajar.
North Korea approved a weapons modernization plan in January last year.
The country has carried out a record 12 missile tests since the beginning of the year.
North Korea test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) in late March.
The launch was the first ICBM since 2017.
North Korea might soon detonate an atomic device for the first time in five years. EFE
