North Korea’s state media came out strong at Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe calling him an “imbecile and political dwarf” for calling Pyongyang’s latest test of a large multiple-rocket launcher a ballistic missile launch and warned he may see a real one in the near future.
North Korea fired two short-range missiles into the sea off its east coast on Thursday in a fourth test of its new “super-large multiple-rocker launcher, ” with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un expressing “great satisfaction” over the latest test.
In the wake of Pyongyang’s firing, Abe said on Thursday that North Korea’s missile launch was a threat to Japan and the international community, and that Tokyo would monitor the situation with its partners to ensure safety of it’s citizens
“It can be said that Abe is the only one idiot in the world and the most stupid man ever known in history as he fails to distinguish a missile from multiple launch rocket system while seeing the photo-accompanied report, ” As a news agency cited the Vice-director generals of the Foreign ministry.
North Korea referred to Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, as an “imbecile and political dwarf”
“Abe may see what a real ballistic missile is in the not distant future and under his nose … Abe is none other than a perfect imbecile and a political dwarf without parallel in the world.”
UN Security Council resolutions ban North Korea from firing ballistic missiles and using such technology, but North Korea rejects the restriction as an infringement of its right to self-defense.
Pyongyang had criticized the Japanese prime minister early on in November after Tokyo said North Korea’s test of what it called “super-large multiple rocket launchers” on October 31 was likely ballistic missiles that violated UN sanctions.
The latest missile tests and increased rhetoric come as a year-end deadline Kim has set for the United States to show flexibility in their stalled denuclearisation talks.
Last month, Pyongyang also claimed to have tested a “new type” of submarine-launched ballistic missile – a potential strategic game-changer in nuclear war and defense.
