North Korea’s state news agency states that Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son-hui warned that the “war of words” from two years ago may be resuming.
“If any language and expressions stoking the atmosphere of confrontation are used once again on purpose at a crucial moment as now, that must really be diagnosed as the relapse of the dotage of a dotard.”
In 2017, the two leaders engaged in tit-for-tat arguments. Mr Trump called Mr Kim as “little rocket man” and “a madman”, while Mr Kim called the US president a “mentally deranged dotard”.
