RT.com, 16 March, 2021-Pyongyang has issued a peculiarly-worded warning to Washington, telling the Biden administration that it should tread lightly if it’s sincere about wanting to restart dialogue.
“We take this opportunity to warn the new US administration trying hard to give off powder smell in our land,” Kim Yo-jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, said in a statement released by state media. “If it wants to sleep in peace for [the] coming four years, it had better refrain from causing a stink at its first step.”
The colourful message was issued after the Biden administration announced that attempts to reach out to Pyongyang have so far been unsuccessful. On Monday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that the Biden administration was committed to reducing the “risk of escalation” with North Korea, but has not received any response to their diplomatic overtures.
