North Korea sends troops to border and to resume military exercises

17th Jun 20 1:26 pm

North Korea is sending thousands of troops to border of South Korea as they moved their military and tanks overnight.

The North are placing their army close to the inter-Korean co-operation sites and are reinstalling heavily fortified guard posts.

The North are to resume provocative military exercises which could push both side into a dangerous conflict which has not been seen in years.

However, according to experts they believe this could be a calculated stunt to apply pressure on the US and Seoul over stalled nuclear negotiations.

North Korea’s General Staff announced his military units are to be deployed to the Diamond Mountain resort and the Kaesong complex.

Major General Jeon Dong Jin of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told reporters that his military readiness will prevent military tensions from occurring.

Unearthed reports have filtered out of North Korea on Tuesday warning that Kim Jong-un has “the button for a nuclear weapons on his table.”

Over the weekend Kim Jong-un’s sister Kim Yo-jong threatened to demolish the liaison office in a statement, which she did. The liaison office opened in 2018 to help North and South communicate.

Since the disappearance of the North Korean despot leader Kim Jung-un, his sister Kim Yo-jong seems to have taken the helm.

Yo-jong also threatened over the weekend that she will send troops into the demilitarised zone (DMZ) at the inter-Korean border as is ready to turn the “frontline into a fortress.”

She has threatened South Korea with land grabs and threatened a potential invasion into the South.

This comes purely as thousands of balloons containing propaganda leaflets which condemned Jong-un entered the North from the South.

Yo-jong who is now at the helm called those responsible for the leaflets as “human scum,” and said the South is “the enemy.”

Youngshik Bong, who is a research fellow at Yonsei University’s Institute for North Korean Studies in Seoul, claims the political statements made by Yo-jong’s underlines her central role in the regime.

He told The Guardian newspaper, “It is revealing that Kim Jong-un permitted her [his sister Yo-jongs]to write and announce a scathing statement about South Korea in such a personal tone.

“He is clearly ready to allow his sister to become his alter-ego.”
