Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, slammed on Tuesday South Korea’s president for criticism of a recent missile test, state-run media said.

In a statement carried by the Korean Central News Agency, she said Moon Jae-in speech astonished the people of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

“Such illogical and brazen-faced behavior of south Korea is exactly the same as the gangster-like logic of the U.S. faulting the right of the DPRK to self-defense as a violation of the UN ‘resolutions’ and ‘threats’ to the international community,” she added.

North Korea launched two ballistic missiles into the sea near Japan last week, just four days after testing cruise missiles.

Following the launches, Moon said any action that could affect the mood for dialogue is “undesirable.” The move was also condemned by the US and UN Security Council.
