The sister of North Korea’s leader Kim Yo-jong categorically rejected the offer of economic aid in exchange for disarmament proposed this week by South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol, whose proposal she called “absurd.”

“Even before pondering the ‘policy towards the North’ of the South Korean authorities, we can say we do not like Yoon Suk-yeol himself,” Kim Jong-un’s sister wrote in a statement published Thursday by the KCNA news agency. EFE
