The body that controls North Korea’s military has attacked South Korea’s new president, Park Geun-hye, referring to the “venomous swish” of her skirt.
An unidentified spokesman for the National Defense Commission’s Ministry of the People’s Armed Forces also repeated North Korean vows from recent days of a “merciless retaliation” against ongoing U.S.-South Korean military drills.
The statement carried by the Korean Central News Agency Wednesday reiterated another North Korean promise to no longer abide by the armistice that ended the Korean War.
“The frenzy kicked up by the South Korean warmongers is no way irrelevant with the swish of the skirt of the owner of Cheong Wa Dae,” the KCNA report said.
The statement then said ill-boding voices were being heard from the presidential office, and warned that any attempt to beef up South Korea’s military through exercises with the U.S. would bring about the country’s destruction.
The statement comes as the North in recent weeks has stepped up its war of words against the annual Foal Eagle and Key Resolve military drills, and the UNSC’s condemnation of its third nuclear test on Feb. 12. Before the latest nuclear detonation, Pyongyang tested nuclear devices in 2006 and 2009.
