North Korea: US and South Korea tried to assassinate Kim Jong Un

Kim Jong-un with North Korean military officials

According to the U.S. military's recent declaration, the United States has 806 deployed ICBMs (intercontinental ballistic missile), SLBMs (submarine-launched ballistic missile), and heavy bombers as well as 1,722 deployed nuclear warheads.

North Korea frequently lambasts the United States and South Korea, but this accusation is unusual in its detail.

The North's ministry claimed that South Korean intelligence agents conspired with the CIA and bribed a North Korean timber worker surnamed Kim in Russian Federation in June 2014 and turned him into a terrorist.

"Then they handed him over $20,000 on two occasions and a satellite transmitter-receiver and let him get versed in it".

President Trump already has sent a nuclear-powered submarine and the USS Carl Vinson carrier strike group to Korean waters, and the USA recently installed the THAAD missile defense system in South Korea.

The KCNA said that Kim looked at the South Korean island at an observation post on Jangjae Islet, calling for combat readiness against its enemy. He had multiple contacts with South Korean intelligence personnel, and an accomplice who had a Chinese-sounding name, Xu Guanghai of the Qingdao Nazca Trade Co. But South Korea has in the past admitted to having plans in place to kill Kim.

The Trump administration has been aggressively pressing Beijing to rein in its ally and neighbor North Korea, warning that all options are on the table if Pyongyang persists with its nuclear and missile development.

The news agency quoted a statement from the North's Ministry of State Security, saying "the last-ditch effort" of USA "imperialists" and the South had gone "beyond the limits".

Those in favour of the legislation said it is created to send a strong message to Pyongyang that the escalation of its nuclear programme will not be tolerated.

The Ministry of State Security, in a lengthy statement, said a group formed with the goal of committing terrorism against Kim by using a biochemical substance had been detected recently. The idea was apparently to deliver some kind of slow-acting poison, possibly at a military parade, that would kill the North Korean leader over the course of six months to a year.

North Korea warned of an impending cataclysm should relations between the two countries reach a boiling point.

Kim has continued North Korea's nuclear weapons program in spite of worldwide pressure to shut it down.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Wednesday (local time) that Washington was working on more sanctions against North Korea if it takes steps that merit a new response.
