North Korea has warned Joe Biden's America to 'avoid causing a stink' if it wants peace.
Reuters correspondent for North and South Korea, Josh Smith, has reported: "As Biden's secretaries of state and defense prepare to visit Seoul, North Korea's Kim yo Jong criticizes military drills in S.Korea and warns Biden administration if it wants peace it must 'refrain from causing a stink at its first step'.
"'We take this opportunity to warn the new U.S. admin. trying hard to give off powder smell in our land,' said Kim Yo Jong, sister of leader Kim Jong Un, via KCNA.
"'If it wants to sleep in peace for coming four years, it had better refrain from causing a stink at its first step.'
"Most of the statement is aimed at South Korea: 'Whatever and however the south Korean authorities may do in the future under their master's instructions, those warm spring days three years ago, which they desire so much, won't come easily again,' Kim Yo Jong said."
Fears had been growing of a completely broken down relationship between the two powers until the statement on Monday, as Biden's outreach to North Korea in February had gone unanswered.
However any intended silence from the secretive state which had dragged out for almost a month, has been abandoned in quite uncertain terms.
Biden is tasked with easing the already mounting tensions with Pyongyang over its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs.
But this message from Kim Yo Jong is a not-so-gentle reminder that North Korea will not be intimidated and readily confirm peace on Biden's terms.
