Duterte slams Kim

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

MANILA: Philip­pine Pres­i­dent Ro­drigo Duterte yes­ter­day de­scribed North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a “fool” and a “son of a b **** ”, just days be­fore Manila hosts an in­ter­na­tional meet­ing cer­tain to ad­dress Py­ongyang’s long-range mis­sile tests.

Duterte held noth­ing back in re­buk­ing Kim, set­ting the stage for next week’s rare get-to­gether.

“This Kim Jong Un, a fool… he is play­ing with dan­ger­ous toys, that fool,” Duterte said. “That chubby face that looks kind. That son of a b **** . If he com­mits a mis­take, the Far East will be­come an arid land. It must be stopped, this nu­clear war.”
