North Korea on Monday called US National Security Adviser John Bolton a “war monger” and “defective human product” after he claimed that Pyongyang’s recent short-range missile tests were a violation of UN Security Council resolutions, according to CBS News, citing an unnamed North Korean foreign ministry spokesman.

The comments come amid President Trump’s visit with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, during which the North Korean nuclear discussions are likely to be high on the agenda.

North Korea tested short-range ballistic missiles on May 4 and 9, ending a pause in launches that began in late 2017. The tests have been seen as a way for North Korea to pressure Washington to soften its stance on easing sanctions against it without actually causing negotiations to collapse. -CBS News

On Saturday, Bolton told reporters in Tokyo that he had “no doubt” that North Korea’s launches violated UN resolutions, which justifies keeping sanctions in place. According to Reuters, Japan shares Bolton’s view on the matter.

North Korea’s Central New Agency, the North Korean Spokesman, said that the North was rightfully exercising its rights of self-defense by conducting the launches. “Demanding us to ban all launches using ballistic technology regardless of range is same with asking us to relinquish our rights for self-defense,” said a spokesman, who added that Bolton is an “ignorant” hard-liner who has consistently pushed provocative policies against North Korea – including pre-emptive strikes and regime change.

The spokesman also said Bolton’s “hammer act” was responsible for the collapse of a major nuclear deal between the countries reached in 1994, when the North agreed to halt its nuclear program in exchange for U.S. fuel aid. The deal broke down in 2002 after U.S. intelligence agencies said North Korea was continuing its pursuit of bombs with a secret uranium enrichment program.

“Bolton should not be called a security adviser who works to secure security, but an adviser for security destruction who destroys peace and security,” the spokesman said. “It’s not that strange that crooked sound will always come out the mouth of a man who is structurally flawed, and it’s best that this defective human product goes away as soon as possible.” -CBS News
