Advisor to DPRK Foreign Ministry Issues Statement

Korean Central News Agency of DPRK

Pyongyang, November 18 (KCNA) -- Kim Kye Gwan, advisor to the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK, released the following statement on Nov. 18:

Reading an article posted by President Trump on Twitter on Nov. 17, I interpreted it as a signification indicative of another DPRK-U.S. summit.

Three rounds of DPRK-U.S. summit meetings and talks were held since June last year, but no particular improvement has been achieved in the DPRK-U.S. relations. And the U.S. only seeks to earn time, pretending it has made progress in settling the issue of the Korean peninsula.

We are no longer interested in such talks that bring nothing to us.

As we have got nothing in return, we will no longer gift the U.S. president with something he can boast of, but get compensation for the successes that President Trump is proud of as his administrative achievements.

If the U.S. truly wants to keep on dialogue with the DPRK, it had better make a bold decision to drop its hostile policy towards the DPRK. -0-
