North Korea has a secret army of brainwashed “robots” who “live and die” for despot Kim Jong-un, the London-based defector revealed.
Joo-il Kim exclusively told Express.co.uk North Korea was not militarily strong enough to bomb their rivals in the traditional sense but were ready to “infiltrate the free world” with a crack squad of suicide bombers.
Mr Kim, who lives in New Malden, south London along with a hundreds-strong population of other North Korean defectors, explained the group of specially-selected killers were the hermit state’s biggest asset.
He said: “The top level leaders won’t wage war. They know they can’t win the war.
“But there is a secret group, secret armies, undercover armies inside North Korea. They were picked by the military leaders and nurtured to be weapons and terrorists.”
He said these soldiers were so devoted to Kim they would give their lives for him. He compared them to “robots” who had no thoughts of their own and merely obeyed North Korea’s dictatorial administration.
Mr Kim said: “They do not have their own personal belief. They are just brainwashed, they just believe what they are told. No-one knows what they are doing.
“They live and they die for Kim Jong-un. That’s what they believe in. They are like robots, they don’t think for themselves. They could act as suicide bombers.”
When asked whether they could attack nearby rivals like South Korea or Japan, Mr Kim replied: “Of course”.
He said while much of the international focus was on North Korea’s missile progress, the real threat was miniaturised nuclear weapons or explosions which could be detonated by a single agent.
He explained: “North Korea has been trying to make nuclear weapons smaller and smaller. Not just to attach to missiles, they want to create so-called nuclear backpacks.
“They make the robot soldiers carrying the backpacks, infiltrate the free world and then fire the bomb anywhere they want, like suicide terrorists.”
He warned even if nuclear weapons could not be sufficiently miniaturised, other weapons could still be transported by these deadly soldiers
He said: “North Korea is already ready to send out the terrorists across the world, carrying biological and chemical weapons.”
