North Korea slams Joe Biden for criticising leader Kim Jong Un

Biden was declared a "fool of low IQ" and an "imbecile" lacking human qualities by Pyongyang's state-controlled Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on Tuesday.

It went as far back as his university days, during which he once got an F for plagiarism and later accusations that he had copied a speech by the British Labour party leader Neil Kinnock.

The 17,061-ton vessel, which was initially detained by Indonesia in April 2018, was reportedly one of North Korea's largest bulk carriers used to deliver heavy machinery to the country.

Why is North Korea criticising Joe Biden? Biden has been on the campaign trail ever since he announced his presidential candidacy last month.

"Are we a nation that embraces dictators and tyrants like (Russian President Vladimir) Putin and Kim Jong Un?". North Korea also rejects the U.N. Security Council's sanctions measures the vessel was allegedly involved in violating.

However, it's important to note that KCNA is an external agency aimed at worldwide audiences, and "North Korea's public don't have access to it", she added.

Trump, who is 72 years old, has attempted to portray Biden, who is 76, as not having enough energy to become president.

The statement does not represent a formal endorsement of Trump; North Korean media often lash out at world leaders who criticize members of the ruling Kim family.

What's with the colourful language?

They didn't file a Constitutional Court challenge to the election result on Thursday as planned but have until Friday to do so. An ambulance filled with stones was found by police and dozens of people carrying envelopes of money when they were arrested.

North Korean state media are urging farmers to do their best with what they have, to grow as much as possible this year.

The insults have included racist and sexist diatribes, including when the North called former president Barack Obama "a monkey" and former South Korean president Park Geun-hye, the country's first female leader, a prostitute.

"Most North Korean propaganda is extremely - nearly comically - aggressive", says Prof Lankov.

The South has not provided direct food aid to the North since 2010.

What do state media tell us about North Korea's politics?

U.S. Justice Department lawyers laid out the case for confiscating the ship in a complaint filed in NY, arguing that payments for maintenance and operation of the vessel were channeled through unwitting U.S. financial institutions in violation of American law.

The comments, published Wednesday, appear to closely mirror remarks made by US President Donald Trump and his supporters against the former vice president.

"I think the fact they are refraining from explicit criticism of the US using domestic outlets shows they're not closing the door on US-DPRK [North Korea] talks just yet".
