North Korea threatens Biden in cryptic message from Kim’s sister

North Korea sent a thinly veiled threat against the new U.S. administration, warning President Biden not to “cause a stink” as he reassesses the U.S. stance toward Pyongyang. The reply came in a statement to the state-run Korean Central News Agency by Kim Yo-jong, the sister of dictator Kim Jong-un. “We take this opportunity to warn the new U.S. administration trying hard to give off powder smell in our land,” she said, an apparent reference to joint U.S.-South Korea military exercises.

In North Korea's first comments directed at the Biden administration, Kim Yo Jong criticized the United States and South Korea for holding military exercises and warned the U.S. against further provocations if it wants a "good night's sleep for the next four years." Her statement was issued on Tuesday, March 16, 2021, as U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin arrived in Asia to talk to U.S. allies Japan and South Korea about North Korea and other regional issues.
