“The greatest destroyer of international peace and stability” – this is how the North Korean agency KCNA writes about Nancy Pelosi, president of the US House of Representatives. North Korea condemned Pelosi’s visit to South Korea. An American diplomat assured her support for Seoul’s efforts to deter the regime of its northern neighbor.
The North Korean state agency KCNA quoted Jo Yong Sam, director general of the press and information department of the North Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs, who said that comments Nancy Pelosi concerning the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula “were part of the US plan to escalate tensions in the region.”

“United States they will have to pay dearly for all the sources of trouble she created, wherever she went, “the agency added.
