South Korea is creating an ‘assassination unit’ as part of its military’s special forces, specifically trained to neutralise North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

The ‘decapitation unit’ will be established by the end of the year, South Korea’s Defence Ministry announced this week.

Its role would be to ‘make Kim Jong-un fear for his life’, and deter him from deploying nuclear weapons.

The move to create the special forces unit followed North Korea’s most recent nuclear missiles test – its sixth and largest so far – and has been welcomed by senior military strategists.

‘The best deterrence we can have, next to having our own nukes, is to make Kim Jong-un fear for his life,’ Shin Won-sik, a South Korean retired three-star general and top operational strategist, told the New York Times.

The news of the came as the U.N. Security Council unanimously voted to step up sanctions on North Korea, with its profitable textile exports now banned and fuel supplies capped.

Japan and South Korea said after the passage of the U.S.-drafted Security Council resolution they were prepared to apply more pressure if North Korea refused to end its aggressive development of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

A tougher initial U.S. draft was weakened to win the support of China, Pyongyang’s main ally and trading partner, and Russia, both of which hold veto power in the council.

‘We don’t take pleasure in further strengthening sanctions today. We are not looking for war,’ U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told the council after the vote. ‘The North Korean regime has not yet passed the point of no return.

‘If it agrees to stop its nuclear programme, it can reclaim its future … If North Korea continues its dangerous path, we will continue with further pressure,’ said Haley, who credited a ‘strong relationship’ between U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping for the successful resolution negotiations.
