North Korea intimidates, United States has no standing to comment on inter-Korean affairs, and it is in Washington’s interest to stay quiet if it wants the upcoming presidential election to go smoothly, reported by KCNA (The Korean Central News Agency) state Media.
“If the U.S. pokes its nose into others’ affairs with careless remarks, far from minding its internal affairs, at a time when its political situation is in the worst-ever confusion, it may encounter an unpleasant thing hard to deal with,” Kwon Jong Gun, director-general for U.S. affairs at North Korea’s Foreign Ministry, said in comments carried by state news agency KCNA.
The United States should “hold its tongue” and address its own domestic problems unless it wants to “experience a hair-raiser,” he said.
“It would be good not only for the U.S. interests but also for the easy holding of upcoming presidential election.”
North Korea made this comment on Tuesday after the U.S. State Department said it was disappointed at North Korea for suspending communication hotlines with South Korea.
However, it is very unclear that how North Korea will disturb the upcoming presidential election in US.
North Korea said on 9 June, that it will cut all hotlines with South korea in order to completely shut down all contact means with South Korea and get rid of unnecessary things.
Although this is not the first time when North cuts all hotlines with South, a tactic that North used more often during tension period. Last time they cut off all hotlines in 2016 that was later restored in 2018.
