North Korea has lashed out at Malaysia over the death of Kim Jong-nam, the brother of North Korean President Kim Jong Un’s, accusing it of having a “sinister purpose” and collaborating with South Korea, which has said Pyongyang agents assassinated Kim Jong-un’s half-brother.
They want Malaysia to stop investigating the murder of his brother.
The article published by the state-run KCNA news agency did not name Kim Jong-nam or acknowledge his status as a ruling family member, referring to him only as “a citizen of the DPRK”, the official name of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
It said authorities in Malaysia had initially told North Korean diplomats that the man had died of a heart attack at Kuala Lumpur airport.
“The DPRK will never allow any attempt to tarnish the image of the dignified power of independence and nuclear weapons state,” the North Koreans said.
Imagine, that’s what they think of themselves.
Basically, the North Korean dictator wants people to: believe his regime had nothing to do with the murder; please stop investigating you sinister people; give us the body; he died of natural causes but don’t do any autopsies.
There are reports that the people arrested were not North Koreans.
