The regime in Pyongyang vows to carry out a counter-terrorist attack on the United States and South Korea in response to the alleged assassination attempt on Kim Jong-un. “The anti-terrorist attack will start right now,” the regime said.

The North Korean press agency, KCNA, claims that a group would have infiltrated the country and tried to use radioactive substances with poisonous nanoparticles in the alleged plot and said the authorities would find and “mercilessly destroy ” the terrorists.

Kim Jong-un was allegedly the target of the attack at a military parade. It is claimed that South Korean and US intelligence approached and bribed a corrupt North Korean official, referred to as “Kim”, while he worked for a timber company in Russia. After being paid, “Kim” was given a “satellite transmitter-receiver” before returning to Pyongyang where he was supposed to receive detailed instructions about various opportunities to complete the attack.

The Agency also specified that the effects of the biochemicals would be visible within 6 to 12 months. The CIA declined to comment and South Korea has issued no statement so far.

“If I could, I would buy North Korea. I’m very excited about North Korea. I would have put all my money in this country, if I could,” said Jim Rogers, who has built his fortune by investing in areas where others feared risks.

“North Korea shows massive changes. It wouldn’t have invested in Kim Jong-un’s father or grandfather, but it is like saying that the 1980s businessmen should not made investments in China because of Mao Zedong. Mao died and Deng Xiaoping brought some changes. At this point, major changes occur in North Korea. This kid made amazing changes,” said Jim Rogers in an interview for CNN Money.

Asked if he will go back to the United States, the businessman replied, “When I go to New York I am so glad that I live in Asia. New York is a city of the third world, with a third world airport and a third world tax system”.

“Comparing the life in Singapore with that in New York? Or the life in Hong Kong with one in Chicago? No, I do not miss these cities. I’m still an American citizen, paying taxes in the US, voting in the US, but I like living here in Asia”, added Jim Rogers.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un was invited to attend a ceremony in Russia in May, which marks the end of World War II.

This would be the first visit by the leader in Pyongyang since taking power in 2011.

According to diplomatic sources, Kim Jong-un would probably have a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, as North Korea supports Russia in Ukraine crisis and Moscow needs Pyongyang cooperation in order to increase the exports of natural gas in South Korea.

But it is not known whether Kim Jong-un will accept this invitation or not.

North Korea wants to have close ties with Russia in the context in which it faces international criticism in relation to human rights abuses and the nuclear program.

Vladimir Putin, who held talks with North Korean leader’s envoy last month urged for development of relations with North Korea to improve regional security.
