N Korea denounces CIA director’s threat
PYONGYANG: North Korea yesterday denounced a recent threat made by Mike Pompeo, director of the CIA, to “remove the supreme leadership” of the country.
“It has now become clear that the ultimate aim of the Trump administration’s hostile policy towards North Korea is the ‘regime change’,” the Korean Central News Agency quoted a spokesperson of the North Korean Foreign Ministry as saying.
The spokesperson said Pompeo “mentioned impertinently at a security forum hosted by a civilian organisation about ‘removal of the supreme leadership’ ” of North Korea.
“What is most dangerous about the North Korean nuclear issue is the character who holds the control over them,” Pompeo said on Thursday. Xinhua
