Kim Jong Un’s sister says US-S. Korea plan risks ‘serious danger’

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s sister, Kim Yo Jong, warns that the US-South Korean agreement aimed at strengthening deterrence against Pyongyang will lead to “more serious danger”. She added that the North remains convinced that its nuclear deterrent “should be brought to further perfection” and criticised the deployment of nuclear assets near the Korean peninsula. This indicates that military tensions around the Korean peninsula could escalate to a level similar to 2017.
