Seoul: The powerful sister of North Korea’s leader has criticized South Korean President Moon Jae-in and threatened complete destruction of relations hours after Moon said South Korea’s growing missile capabilities will serve as a sure deterrence” against North Korean provocations.

Moon made the comments after South Korea’s first successful test of a submarine-launched ballistic missile. The test came hours after the South Korean and Japanese militaries said North Korea had fired two ballistic missiles into the sea.

In a statement released by state media on Wednesday, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s sister, Kim Yo Jong, criticised Moon’s description of the North Korean missile tests as a provocation and warned of complete destruction of bilateral relations if Moon continues with what she described as slander of North Korea.
