North Korea has accused the CIA of trying to assassinate its leader, Kim Jong-un, using a chemical nerve agent earlier this year.
According to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), a U.S. spy was paid to murder Jong-un using a lethal substance. The plot bears shocking similarities to the one used to kill Kim Jong-un’s half-brother, Kim Jong-nam, at Kuala Lumpur airport in February 2017.
KCNA said: "In May this year, a group of heinous terrorists who infiltrated into our country on the orders of the Central Intelligence Agency of the US and the South Korean puppet Intelligence Service with the purpose of carrying out a state-sponsored terrorism against our supreme headquarters using biological and chemical substance were caught and exposed."
The report also asserted that:
"This palpably shows the true nature of the US as the main culprit behind terrorism."
The information has come to light after North Korean operatives got hold of a large number of war plans drawn up by the US and South Korea – which included details of how to assassinate Kim Jong-un.
The US defence ministry would not comment on the reports, but South Korea have confirmed its validity.
About 50,000 documents are in the collection of documents that were stolen in the September 2016 hack. One of those is called 'OPLAN 5015' which is part of the most recent plans for war with North Korea and was drawn up in 2015. The plans also outline how the US would dispose of North Korean leaders.
It's about time both nations stopped their nonsense before another world war begins.
