Kim Jong Un toughens his rhetoric and points out South Korea as his main enemy

Seoul — The leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Unrated South Korea as “our main enemy” and He threatened to annihilate her if provoked.while toughening his fiery rhetoric in an election year both in the neighboring nation and in the United States.

The White Housefor its part, indicated that it has evidence that Russia fired additional ballistic missiles provided by Pyongyang over Ukraine. The United States, South Korea and their allies condemned in a statement Wednesday the missile transfer between the North and Russia.

Experts point out that Kim could further raise tensions with new missile launch tests to try to raise the stakes in their confrontation with their rivals and influence the South Korean parliamentary elections in April and the United States presidential elections in November.

During his visit to munitions factories this week, Kim said the time has come to define South Korea “as the most hostile state” toward the North for their prolonged attempts to overthrow the socialist system in force in the hermetic nation. Furthermore, he added that Pyongyang must strengthen its nuclear deterrent capacity, according to the Korean Central News Agency (ACNC).

If Seoul dares to use its military force against the country, Kim said that “We will not hesitate to annihilate (the South) by mobilizing all the means and forces at our disposal.”added the ACNC.

The president has made similar threats recently and, according to analysts, could expect the South Korean progressive opposition, which seeks reconciliation with the North, to win the April elections. Kim might also believe that he can win concessions from the United States if the former president donald trump returns to the White House, they added. Kim and Trump met three times as part of a high-level diplomatic effort between 2018 and 2019..

There are concerns that North Korean provocations could cause localized clashes with Seoul along its heavily armed border.

Last Friday, Pyongyang fired artillery shells near the disputed western maritime border, prompting Seoul to conduct its own firing exercises in the same area.. The South accused the North of carrying out more such maneuvers in the area over the weekend.
