North Korea accuses CIA of 'bio-chemical' plot against leadership

North Korea has accused the United States and South Korea of plotting to assassinate Kim Jong-Un.

According to North Korea's state-run Korean Central News Agency, "a disgusting terrorists' group" directed by CIA and South Korean spies "ideologically corrupted" a North Korean dissident identified as "Kim" and paid the man more than $20,000 to carry out the attack.

More recently, US President Donald Trump has vowed to "properly deal" with North Korea as it continues to test ballistic missiles off the peninsular.

The CIA and Seoul's Intelligence Services (IS) have "ideologically corrupted and bribed a DPRK citizen surnamed Kim" to carry out the attack on Jong-Un, the statement said.

The statement said: "We will ferret out and mercilessly destroy to the last one the terrorists of the US CIA and the puppet Intelligence Services of South Korea".

The allegations came after the US House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly in favour of imposing tighter sanctions on North Korea by targeting its shipping industry.

North Korea said that the impact of the attack on the North Korean leader would be not be visible for six to 12 months afterward.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un was a target of bio-chemical weapons, according to the country's Ministry of State Security.

Earlier this year, Seoul accused Pyongyang of using the chemical war agent VX to assassinate Kim Jong Un's exiled half-brother at Kuala Lumpur's airport, which led to calls in the U.S. to relist the North as a state sponsor of terrorism.

"This is money that Kim Jong-un uses to advance his nuclear and missile programme, and also pay his generals, buying their loyalty to his brutal regime", he said.

Korean News Agency, who is often cited for spreading unverified reports against the American government, gave a lengthy description of the alleged plot by the C.I.A. against Kim Jong-un.

Tillerson said the Trump administration had been "leaning hard into China ... to test their willingness to use their influence, their engagement with the regime".
