Malaysia’s foreign ministry said on Friday it strongly condemned the use of the toxic nerve agent VX, which authorities say was used to kill the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at Kuala Lumpur International airport last month. Kim Jong Nam was murdered on February 13 at the airport’s budget terminal with the VX nerve agent, a chemical classified by the United Nations as a weapon of mass destruction.
