North Korea’s ambassador to Mexico Kim Hyong-jil protested the decision to expel him, saying his country’s nuclear program was the result of Washington’s policy and had nothing to do with Mexico.
Ambassador Kim described the decision as an ignorant step, according to Mexican media.
Kim expressed his regret and opposition to the illegal decision, describing it as “immoral”, asserting that his country has the strongest nuclear weapon, despite the sanctions imposed on it.
Ambassador Kim said his country would continue to promote nuclear weapons unless the United States renounced its hostile policy against it.
The Mexican authorities announced on September 8 that North Korea’s ambassador to Korea, Kim Hyong-jil, was an unwanted person and had given him 72 hours to leave the country in protest against Pyongyang’s recent nuclear test and launched a series of ballistic missiles.
