Malaysia still has a "problem" with North Korea, two years after the assassination of Kim Jong Un's half-brother

Malaysian Prime Minister reiterated on the eve of the anniversary of Kim Jong's assassination to us alienated half-brother that the country still has a "problem" with North Korea.

Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad also said his government was ready to settle with North Korea, two years after the regime had carried out the Malaysian assassination on Malaysian soil.

Kim Jong Nam was murdered at Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia by two women who allegedly sprayed a deadly neurotoxin on his face. He died shortly after the attack.

It was one of the most prominent murder cases of the communist regime. Experts said the murder was executed by order of the country leader because the estranged half-brother was a prominent critic of his family's rule.

The assassination triggered a fast international response against North Korea. The US government classified the country as a state sponsor of terrorism. Later, additional sanctions were introduced, with the murder being one of the reasons.

Malaysia's prime minister was ready to address and solve his country's problems with North Korea.

"We have a problem with North Korea after the death of the North Korean here," Mahathir said, according to Channel NewsAsia.

"Malaysia will solve its problem later with North Korea," he added. "If we open our message again, we will solve the problem later."
