N.Korea leader revisits island strike site

In a statement issued to the media, Pyongyang said, the Central Intelligence Agency sought to use “biochemical substances including radioactive substances and nano poisonous substances” to kill Jong-Un during a public event in North Korea.

The ministry said the spy agencies in June 2014 “ideologically corrupted and bribed” a North Korean citizen who had been working in Russian Federation to carry out the alleged assassination on Kim after returning home.

After having looked at South Korea’s Yeonpyeong Island from the observation post of the defence detachment on Jang Jae Islet and receiving a report on the recent reinforcement on this island, the North Korean leader “acquainted and examined the plan for fire strike” on South Korea’s newly organised forces, Efe news reported.

Pyongyang fired a barrage of 170 artillery shells onto Yeonpyeong island in November 2010, killing four people including two civilians in the first North Korean attack on a civilian area since the 1950-53 Korean War.

He stressed the need for the artillery group to “keep highly alert to break the backbone of the enemy once ordered”, KCNA said.

North Korea’s state media significantly faulted China, accusing them of testing tthe nation’s patience, and risking their long-standing friendship with reckless moves, saying that North Korea would never give up its nuclear weapons under any circumstances.

But it carried out a controversial supposed satellite launch – which Seoul and Washington say was a covert test of a long-range missile – just a week before the last presidential election in 2012.
