On the anniversary of the anniversary of the murder of Kim Jong's alien half brother, Malaysia's Prime Minister reiterated that the country still has a "problem" with North Korea.
But Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad also said his government is ready to settle in North Korea, two years after the regime carried out the murder in daylight on Malaysian soil.
Kim Jong Nam was murdered at Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia by two women who allegedly sprayed a deadly nerve agent on his face. He died shortly after the attack.

"We have a problem with North Korea after the death of the North Korean here," says Mahathir, according to Channel NewsAsia.
"Malaysia will solve its North Korea problem later," he added. "If we want to reopen our embassy, we will solve this problem later."
