CIA chief Mike Pompeo: if North Korea’s Kim Jong-un dies, don’t ask me about it


Director of the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States, Mike Pompeo, said that if North Korean leader Kim Jong-un disappears or dies, he should not be asked questions.

“With respect, if Kim Jong-un should vanish, given the history of the CIA, I’m just not going to talk about it,” he said.

He made this statement during his speech at the Foundation for Defence of Democracies forum in Washington. He stressed that the CIA is going to become a much more “vicious” department than it is at the moment.

“Someone might think there was a coincidence. ‘You know, there was an accident.’ It’s just not fruitful.”

Earlier, hackers from the DPRK allegedly intercepted secret documents of the United States and South Korea, where the plan for the assassination of Kim Jong-un was considered in the event of war. At the same time, the Russian Foreign Ministry offered to help in establishing relations between the United States and the DPRK.
