Kim Jong-un has labelled China a ‘detested enemy’, in the wake of Beijing agreeing to implement the latest UN restrictions against North Korea.
A government document believed to have been sent out to a majority of the population, urges all North Koreans to ‘crush China’s pressuring schemes with the force of a nuclear storm’.
This comes as President Barack Obama met Chinese President Xi Jinping in Washington on Thursday, and both called for North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons.
Equally hated: China has been branded a ‘detested enemy’ of North Korea after agreeing to implement UN’s economic restrictions and Chinese President Xi Jinping joining forces with US President Barack Obama.
After Thursday’s meeting, China also agreed to implement in full the latest economic restrictions imposed by the UN Security Council against Pyongyang.
The document was sent out to all members of The Workers Party of North Korea – effectively the entire population – and has been obtained by Seoul-based newspaper Daily NK.
‘All Party members and workers must join in soundly crushing China’s pressuring schemes with the force of a nuclear storm for its betrayal of socialism.’
It moves on to declare China a ‘detested enemy’ a title also given to Japan, however believed to still be ranked slightly below South Korea and the U.S. who are ‘feared enemy’.
Hours after the U.S., South Korean and Japanese leaders pledged to work closer together to prevent North Korea from advancing its nuclear and missile programs, Pyongyang fired a short-range missile into the sea.

The surface-to-air missile fired from an eastern coastal area flew into waters off the North’s east coast on Friday morning, South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.
The launch came in the middle of the two-day nuclear security summit being hosted by President Barack Obama, at which North Korea has been the focus of the US president’s talks with the leaders of China, South Korea and Japan.
KIM JONG-UN ‘NOW WEIGHS 300LBS’ AMID ANOTHER KOREAN FAMINE
Kim Jong-Un has reportedly ballooned to 300lbs – while telling his population to prepare for another great famine.
The 33-year-old dictator is said to have added another 70lbs to his already sizeable frame in recent years, and now reportedly walks with a cane.
And while Kim gets fatter, his population starves, with state media warning of another ‘Arduous March’ – a term used to describe the great four-year North Korean famine of the 1990s.
The North Korean population need to prepare themselves to ‘chew the roots of plants once again,’ an editorial in newspaper Rodong Sinmun newspaper stated on Monday.
The summit opened Thursday with Obama trying to forge consensus among East Asian leaders on how to respond to Pyongyang’s recent nuclear and missile tests, which have seen an escalation of tensions in the region.
Obama spoke Thursday of the need to ‘vigilantly enforce the strong UN security measures’ imposed on the North after its latest nuclear test and subsequent long-range rocket launch.
Pyongyang’s state media has labelled the summit a ‘nonsensical’ effort to find fault with the North’s ‘legitimate access to nuclear weapons’.
Existing UN sanctions ban North Korea from conducting any ballistic missile test, although short-range launches tend to go unpunished.
‘Of great importance to both of us is North Korea’s pursuit of nuclear weapons, which threatens the security and stability of the region.
‘President Xi and I are both committed to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula,’ Obama said at the start of his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Obama and Jinping pledged to cooperate to confront the North Korean nuclear threat while working toward narrowing the persistent differences over cybersecurity, human rights and maritime conflicts.
