Kim Jong-un has apologised to his South Korean neighbours after sending a fax in error that has been interpreted as a threat of military action against his neighbours. The North Korean leader sent the fax which said ‘I propose to use military force to its maximum extend without warning…’. Unfortunately the second page, that got chewed up by the 1980’s technology, continued ‘…if you don’t reserve me a room for the night, with breakfast in the morning and a Corby trouser press’ but was never seen.
Critics of the North Korean regime say the fax, which should have been sent to a hotel in Pyongyang, shows how the Mr Kim was using his military strength to deal with the most menial tasks such as booking a hotel room, arranging a pizza delivery and executing his own Uncle.
The South Korean government have accepted the apology but say they will be keeping their army on standby. A spokesman in Seoul said: ‘We understand that the fax was sent in error and was not a threat to out nation, but we have now missed the deadline for posting Christmas cards to the North and know that Mr Kim will be pissed off seeing as he sent us chocolates by a courier, who had a gun to his head’.
