North Korea is not responding to any behind-the-scenes diplomatic outreach by Biden’s Admin, according to Reuters.
“To date, we have not received any response from Pyongyang,” a senior Biden official told Reuters.
Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un warned Joe Biden against “causing a stink” if the US wants to “sleep in peace” as Secretary of State Antony Blinken visited Asia this week.
Blinken arrived in Tokyo, Japan this week and said the US will continue to work toward denuclearization and to counter China’s growing “coercion and aggression” in Asia.
Kim Yo Jong threatened Biden in a first public comment directed toward the Biden Administration.
She said North Korea took “this opportunity to warn the new U.S. administration trying hard to give off powder smell in our land.”
“If it wants to sleep in peace for the coming four years, it had better refrain from causing a stink at its first step,” she added, according to KCNA.
Looks like things are off to a good start with Russia and North Korea.
Joe Biden threatened Russian President Vladimir Putin this week and called him a ‘killer with no soul.’
A few hours after Biden’s interview with Stephanopoulos aired where he threatened Putin, Russia recalled its ambassador to the United States, a sign relations are strained between the US and Russia.
Just like Barack Obama said, “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f*ck things up.”
