N. Korea threatens use of weapons to control border with China
North Korea’s Ministry of State Security (MSS) recently sent an official complaint to Chinese authorities criticizing their complacency in policing the Sino-North Korean border and even threatened the use of weapons to control movement in the region, Daily NK has learned.
“The Ministry of State Security sent what essentially amounted to a complaint against the Chinese to the Chinese border guard,” a military source told Daily NK on Monday. “The complaint demanded that China must better control the activities of its people in the border region, particularly in the Yalu River region.”
The complaint comes after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un called on officials to take “special measures on disease control” at an expanded meeting of the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK)’s Politburo on Friday.
“Our preventive measures are about more than prevention. They are key to our national project of protecting our people, and the responsibility of the Central Committee of the Party,” Kim said during the meeting. “All must adhere strictly to the decisions and directions of the Party center, and focus all energies on the safety of the nation and in protecting the lives of the people.” ......
