Ahead of the historic meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-Ho took to Twitter today (Monday) to express his thoughts on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Responding to Netanyahu’s video in which he promised to share Israel’s water technology with Iranian farmers, Ri Yong-Ho tweeted that while “Netanyahu offer [sic] water to Iran, he “can’t be bothered” to give water to Gaza because “he kills them instead.” Netanyahu, he wrote, is a “stinking Zionist” and a “criminal/liar.”
Today I made an unprecedented offer to Iran that can help save countless lives.

The foreign minister had previously expressed on his Twitter account that Israel is attempting to sabotage the summit, scheduled to take place on Tuesday in Singapore. “Israel also working overtime to make SingaporeSummit fail; he hate DPRK [sic]” tweeted Ri.
In the same breath, he bashed “stinking Zionist warmonger Netanyahu” for “seeking to isolate Iran” on his trip to Europe.
Emmanuel Nahshon, the spokesperson for Israel’s Foreign Ministry, replied to Ri’s tweet saying that while it was a good thing that Ri follows Israel on Twitter and reacts to its posts, it was a shame that he chose to “insult us with no reason.”
On the bright side- you follow us on Twitter and react. On the negative side- you insult us with no reason. Israel is a peace seeking nation, defending itself against a brutal and hate filled Iranian regime seeking our destruction.
