According to a report by the Korean Central News Agency on the 9th, Kim Yo-jung, the First Vice Minister of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, issued a statement on the 8th, condemning South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-he’s remarks about epidemic prevention in North Korea.
Kim Yo-jong said that she learned from the report a few days ago that South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wok-wa made arbitrious comments on North Korea’s emergency epidemic prevention measures during his visit to the Middle East, throwing cold water on the already frozen North-South relations. Its intention has been revealed, and the North Korean side will remember it.
Kang Jinghe attended the Manama Dialogue held in Bahrain on the 5th. Speaking at the first plenary meeting on the theme of “Global Governance of the Coronavirus Pandemic”, he pointed out that although North Korea claimed that there were no confirmed cases, it was more focused on epidemic prevention, which was a little strange.
