North Korea calls Pelosi ‘destroyer of international peace’

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) North Korea on Saturday called U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi the worst destroyer of international peace and stability, accusing her of inciting anti-North Korea sentiment and enraging China during her Asian tour earlier this week.

Pelosi traveled to South Korea after visiting Taiwan, which had prompted China to launch military exercises including missile strike trained in waters close to the self-governed island. China views Taiwan within its territory to be annexed by force if necessary.

During South Korea, Pelosi visited a border area with North Korea and discussed the Norths nuclear program with South Korean National Assembly Speaker Kim Jin Pyo. In accordance with Kim, both decided to support their governments push for denuclearization and peace on the Korean Peninsula predicated on strong, extended deterrence contrary to the North and diplomacy.

On Saturday, Jo Yong Sam, director general at the North Korean Foreign Ministrys press and information affairs department, slammed Pelosi over her stop by at the border and discussion of anti-North Korean deterrence.

Pelosi, who had come under a volley of due criticism from China for destroying regional peace and stability at Taiwan, stirred up the atmosphere of confrontation with North Korea during her stay static in South Korea, Jo said in a statement carried by state media.

Calling Pelosi the worst destroyer of international peace and stability, Jo argued Pelosis behavior in South Korea clearly showed the Biden administrations hostile policy toward North Korea.

It will be a fatal mistake on her behalf to believe that she can go scot-free in the Korean Peninsula, Jo warned. The U.S. will need to pay dearly for all your resources of trouble spawned by her wherever she went.

Pelosis stop by at the Joint Security Area at the Korean border on Thursday made her the highest-profile American to go there since then-President Donald Trump visited in 2019 for a gathering with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Located in the worlds most heavily fortified border, the region is jointly controlled by the American-led US Command and North Korea. U.S. presidents along with other top officials have previously traveled to the region to reaffirm their security commitment to South Korea in times of animosities with North Korea.

During her JSA visit, Pelosi didnt make any strong public statements against North Korea. She uploaded several photos from the JSA on Twitter and wrote: We conveyed the gratitude of the Congress and the united states for the patriotic service of our servicemembers, who stand as sentinels of Democracy on the Korean Peninsula.

Pelosi said in another statement that she and Kim, the South Korean parliamentary speaker, reaffirmed our commitment to the U.S.-Korea alliance to advance security, strengthen our supply chains, and increase trade and investments which are good for both our nations.

Tensions on the Korean Peninsula remain high following North Koreas torrid run of missile tests earlier this season. U.S. and South Korean officials said North Korea is preparing to perform its first nuclear weapons test in five years.

North Korea has said it could not go back to denuclearization talks and instead concentrate on expanding its nuclear program unless america drops its hostile policies, within an apparent mention of U.S.-led international sanctions on the North and its own regular military drills with South Korea.

After Pelosi visited Taiwan and reaffirmed Washingtons commitment to defending democracy on the self-governing island, North Korea on Wednesday issued a statement berating the U.S. and supporting China, its main ally and biggest aid benefactor.

Pelosi was the the initial House speaker to go to Taiwan in 25 years.
