North Korea rejects economic aid from Seoul in exchange for denuclearization


“I don’t know what brazen ideas they will knock on the door in the future, but I make it clear that we will never do anything about it,” said Kim Yo Jong, the sister of the country’s president.

Kim Yo Jong, the sister of the North Korean president, yesterday rejected the economic aid plan offered by the South Korean government in exchange for Pyongyang’s denuclearization measures.

North Korea “will never accept the bold initiative” of Yoon Suk-yeol’s government, Kim said, according to South Korea’s Yunhap news agency. “I don’t know what brazen ideas they’ll be knocking on the door with in the future, but I’m making it clear that we’ll never do anything about it,” Kim said, after criticizing the plan as “the height of madness” and describing it. it as a copy of the failed plan of the conservative government of former President Lee Myung Bak.

The South Korean president announced Monday that he is willing to offer a large economic aid package to his northern neighbor in exchange for denuclearization. This plan would take place in the event that Pyongyang decides to embark on the path of denuclearization, a measure it considers “essential” to achieve lasting peace in the region, the Yonhap news agency reported.

To this end, Seoul offered a large-scale food program, help to improve infrastructure in the energy sector or modernize ports and airports to cope with international trade. Yoon also suggested supporting efficiency in the agricultural, health or financial sector.

The South Korean presidency office responded to Kim’s comments by calling them “rude” words.
