Recently passed sanctions by the United Nations and crippling new guidelines by the United States are slowly pushing Kim Jong Un’s brutal regime to the brink, with South Korean lawmakers saying the Hermit Kingdom will be totally broke by October 2018.
According to Fox News, South Korean legislator Kang Seok-ho informed his fellow lawmakers that North Korea is slowly running out of currency and will be unable to operate this fall; adding Kim’s recent “olive branch” to Seoul during the Winter Olympics was part of an elaborate ruse to buy the communist regime more time.
“I received an analysis that, if international sanctions against the North continue like this, all of North Korea’s foreign currency earnings and overseas assets will be frozen, and its dollar [reserves] will dry up around October,” Kang said.
“At a time like this, our government should further strengthen cooperation with the international community on sanctions against the North,” he added.
Stories of Kim’s drastic economic troubles surfaced earlier this year, with reports of North Korean soldiers foraging the forests and looting local residents after food supplies ran dry and oil rations dwindled.
