North Korea’s Ministry of State Security released an in depth statement on Friday, accusing the United State’s Central Intelligence Agency and the South Korean Intelligence Service of sponsoring a biological terror attack intended to kill the nation’s Supreme Leader, Kim Jong Un.

According to a statement released by the Ministry, the CIA and South Korea’s Intelligence Service (referred to as IS) “corrupted and bribed a DPRK citizen” starting in July of 2014.  Per their accusations, intelligence operatives from the two nations engaged the North Korean citizen while he was a timber worker in the Khabarovsk Territory of Russia.

From there, the North Korean citizen, whose surname they reveal to be Kim, was supposedly groomed for intelligence operations within the North Korean state that included establishing terrorist cells and the supporting infrastructure needed to smuggle equipment into the nation, and most importantly, the use of biological weapons to kill North Korea’s leadership.

Their claims regarding the biological weapons nearly parallel the plot of the movie “The Interview,” in which American journalists attempt to covertly infect Kim with a chemical that will kill him after their departure.  Although, unlike in the controversial comedy, North Korea claims the weapon was designed to keep the target living for up to a year before killing him.

“They told him that assassination by use of biochemical substances including radioactive substance and nano poisonous substance is the best method that does not require access to the target, their lethal results will appear after six or twelve months,” the statement reads.

The statement goes on to accuse the United States of providing the poisonous substance, and South Korea of providing the rest of the support and equipment.

“… The component of terrorism-purposed bio-chemical substance is the know-how of the CIA and it is only the CIA that can produce such substance, and that hardware, supplies and funds needed for committing terrorism against the supreme leadership will completely be borne by the IS.”

North Korea provides dates and sums of money that were supposedly funneled to this contact, including some payments as high as $100,000 (US) in order to fund “terrorist” activities from Pyongyang, where the operative was said to live.
