North Korea accuses Central Intelligence Agency of plot to murder Kim Jong

It noted that a "Korean-style anti-terrorist attack will be commenced from this moment to sweep away the intelligence and plot-breeding organizations of the USA imperialists and the puppet clique".

The North Korean claim on Friday said Pyongyang will be launching its own intelligence operations to counter USA and South Korean spying and assassination plots against Mr. Kim.

The report alleged that the Central Intelligence Agency, in conjunction with South Korea and a North Korean citizen identified only as Kim, attempted to kill the nation's leader at a recent military parade.

The North Korean statement did not provide details about how it allegedly broke up the assassination plot or if anyone else involved was in custody.

North Korea's main secret police agency on Friday accused us and South Korean intelligence agents of a failed but elaborate plot to assassinate the isolated nation's leader Kim Jong-un with "biochemical" and "nano poisonous substances".

Tension on the Korean peninsula has been high for weeks, driven by concern that North Korea might conduct its sixth nuclear test or test-launch another ballistic missile in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions.

North Korea is under United Nations sanctions targeting its efforts to develop a nuclear missile arsenal, but Washington wants its Asian allies to do more.

The North Korean Security ministry has issued a threat to the United States regarding these claims.

Calling the US and South Korean intelligence services a "hotbed of evils in the world", the report accused the agencies of having "hatched a vicious plot to hurt the supreme leadership of the DPRK".

"The price that Beijing pays for its longstanding support for a North Korean regime that exports instability as its only sure means of regime survival is a bill that has finally come due". North Korea has continued on with its missile tests despite condemnation from the global community and threats from the US and its allies.

Kim Jong Un's regime refuses to relent to Chinese pressure due to its understanding of China's actual reason for avoiding the collapse of the North Korean regime, namely that it would destroy the power balance in northeastern Asia.

North Korea also makes an improbable claim that more than 30,000 North Korean defectors who fled to South Korea in the last two decades had been kidnapped by the South.
