‘Worst destroyer of int’l peace’
North Korea yesterday slammed US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over her recent visit to the heavily fortified Demilitarized Zone, calling her the "worst destroyer of international peace".Pelosi, who visited Seoul earlier this week following a trip to Taiwan, became the highest-ranking US official to visit the Joint Security Area (JSA) between the two Koreas since then-president Donald Trump met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un there in 2019. Pelosi's Taiwan visit, meanwhile, drew threats and massive military drills from China, a key ally of North Korea. "Pelosi, the worst destroyer of international peace and stability... incurred the wrath of the Chinese people for her recent junket to Taiwan," the North Korean foreign ministry said in the statement. "The US will have to pay dearly for all the sources of trouble spawned by her wherever she went."
