Aug. 2, 2017 (EIRNS)–In a speech to tax officials in Manila today, Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte lambasted North Korean leader Kim Jong-un for his nuclear ambitions.

“This Kim Jong-un, a fool' ... he is playing with dangerous toys... Thatson of a bitch.'” “If he commits a mistake, the Far East will become an arid land. It must be stopped, this nuclear war,” he said, {South China Morning Post} reported. “A limited confrontation and it blows up here, I will tell you, the fallout can deplete the soil, the resources, and I don’t know what will happen to us,” he said.

This is not the first time that Duterte criticized Kim. In April, he accused Kim of being a man “who wants to end the world.” Both China and Russia have also been sharply critical of Kim, while equally calling on the United States to cease its provocations in the area.

Duterte is the rotating chairman of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), and on Aug. 7 his foreign minister will host the ASEAN Regional Forum, which will bring together the 10 ASEAN countries plus 17 others, including China, Australia, India, Japan, Russia, North and South Korea, and the United States.
