President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday called North Korean leader Kim Jong a “fool” and  “crazy” for conducting missile tests despite condemnation from the international community.

“Baka nga itong si Kim Jong Un, itong tarantado, you know if that guy — I do not think he is ready, but he is playing with dangerous toys, iyang buang na iyan,” Duterte said during his speech at the 113th founding anniversary of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) in Quezon City.


“That chubby face that looks kind. That son of a bitch. If he commits a mistake, the Far East will become an arid land. It must be stopped, this nuclear war,” he added.

The President said the North Korean leader was “playing with dangerous toys.”


“Baka nga ito si Kim Jong-un, ‘yung t*****. You know, if that guy… I do not think that he is ready but he is playing with dangerous toys, ‘yang buang na ‘yan,” he said.

Kim Jong Un using binoculars - 4 July 2017

This image made from video of a news bulletin aired by North Korea’s KRT on Tuesday, July 4, 2017, shows what was said to be North Korea leader Kim Jung Un using binoculars to watch the launch of a Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) in North Korea’s northwest. Independent journalists were not given access to cover the event depicted in this photo. North Korea claimed to have tested its first intercontinental ballistic missile in a launch Tuesday, a potential game-changing development in its push to militarily challenge Washington – but a declaration that conflicts with earlier South Korean and US assessments that it had an intermediate range.

Duterte said a confrontation with North Korea with the threat of nuclear war was dangerous.

“It must be stopped itong nuclear war because a limited confrontation and it blows up here, sabihin ko sa’yo, the fallout could deplete the soil, its resources at ewan ko kung anong mangyari sa atin,” he said.

In April, leaders of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) expressed concerns over the nuclear and missile tests being conducted by North Korea and urged “self-restraint” from the communist nation amid rising tensions in the region.
