North Korea today criticized through its official media the visit made last Thursday by the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, to the inter-Korean border, which she described as “hostile”.

In a statement collected this Saturday by the state agency KCNA, Foreign Ministry spokesman Jo Yong-Sam accused Pelosi of “fueling the atmosphere of confrontation” against Pyongyang, after “destroying regional peace and stability with her visit to Taiwan”.

Pelosi spoke during her stay in Seoul of “strengthening and expanding deterrence” against North Korea and moved to the demilitarized border, which Pyongyang sees as “a manifestation of the hostile policy of the current United States Administration,” according to the spokesman.

The American politician visited the village of Panmunjom last Thursday, also known as the Joint Security Zone (JSA), in the demarcation that separates the two Koreas, after meeting in Seoul with her South Korean counterpart and having a telephone conversation with the president. of the country, Yoon Suk-yeol, as part of his Asian tour.

The North Korean spokesman accused Pelosi of “unleashing the anger of the Chinese people with her recent visit to Taiwan”, and warned that “it would be a fatal mistake for her to think that she can go to the Korean peninsula without consequences”, in Pyongyang’s first statement about his trip to the neighboring country.

“The United States must pay the consequences of all the problems that it has generated in each site that it has visited,” the spokesman said.

The North Korean regime, whose talks on denuclearization with the United States have been stalled since 2019, already charged against Pelosi at the beginning of the week when her visit to Taiwan had not yet taken place, which has unleashed the biggest crisis around the island since 1996. .
