PYONGYANG, North Korea, Nov. 25 (UPI) -- North Korean leader Kim Jong Un referred to Americans as "cannibals and brutal murderers seeking pleasure in slaughter" during a tour of an anti-U.S. museum in Sinchon on Tuesday.
The North's state-run Korean Central News Agency quoted the Supreme Leader's explanation for visiting the Sinchon Museum of American War Atrocities.
"I am visiting this museum in order to strengthen the anti-U.S. lessons for our military and people in reflection of the changes in situation and demands of the revolutionary development and to powerfully unite the 10 million soldiers and people in the battle against the United States."
The museum, built in 1960, portrays the mass murder of approximately 35,000 Sinchon villagers during the Korean War, purportedly by U.S. soldiers. According to KCNA, Kim last visited the museum in 1998 with his late father, Kim Jong Il.
"The massacres committed by the U.S. imperialist aggressors in Sinchon evidently showed that they are cannibals and brutal murderers seeking pleasure in slaughter," Kim was quoted as saying Tuesday.
The anti-U.S. statements come a week after the United Nations General Assembly's Third Committee passed a non-binding resolution condemning North Korea for human rights abuses.
