North Korea calls Shinzo Abe an idiot, warns of future missile launch

This undated photo provided on Friday, Nov. 29 2019, by the North Korean government, shows what it claims as a test firing of its "super-large" multiple rocket launcher in North Korea. North Korea says the latest test-firing was a final review of the weapon's combat application.

North Korea called Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe an “idiot” and “political dwarf” Saturday in a row over Pyongyang’s latest rocket tests, warning that he “may see what a real ballistic missile is in the not distant future.”

The statement from the North Korean foreign ministry followed Pyongyang’s launch of two short-range projectiles into the ocean on Thursday.

The test had prompted Abe to convene a National Security cabinet meeting in Tokyo to call the move a “grave challenge to the international community,” according to the Kyodo news service.

North Korea responded with a blistering statement from an unnamed deputy foreign minister in charge of Japanese affairs, saying Abe didn’t know what he was talking about when it comes to military hardware.

“Abe is the only one idiot in the world and the most stupid man ever known in history as he fails to distinguish a missile from multiple launch rocket system,” said the statement, which was carried by the state-run Korean Central News Agency.
