North Korea angered by Biden

Relations between the US and North Korea have deteriorated further. President Joe Biden called out North Korea’s human rights record and said the nuclear programs of the Hermit Kingdom and Iran were “serious threats to American security and the security of the world” in his first address to Congress last week. And like the girl in an expensive disaster meme, North Korean said Biden’s statements showed the US is “girding itself up for an all-out showdown“. The Biden administration has been trying to contact North Korean officials since taking office, so far unsuccessfully. A review of America’s policies on dealing with North Korea has been completed by Biden’s team, and discussions with South Korea and Japan about the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula will happen soon.
