The announcement, issued on Sunday by North Korea’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, gave attention to President Donald Trump, saying he avails himself of every possible occasion to express his willingness to improve the DPRK-U.S.
Relations. , The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea – or the DPRK – is the official name of North Korea.
But it accused the State Department of being bent on attracting the DPRK-U.S. Relations back to the status of last year that was marked by exchanges of fire.
Trump has regularly praised Kim, saying in Sept that the leader of the North was brilliant, and the two fell in love, after their historic summit in Singapore in June.
Their summit produced an agreement that North Korea would work for the full denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, although the U.S. Promised to give security guarantees.
But more than 6 months later, there’s been little progress. Pyongyang is looking for respite from penalizing international sanctions and an arrangement for the official end to the Korean War, while Washington is holding out for whole denuclearization first, sticking to its pressure, and plan on the economic and diplomatic fronts.
At the meantime, satellite imagery has shown that North Korea is continuing with its nuclear and missiles applications.
The U.S. should realize before it’s too late that maximum pressure wouldn’t work against US, the North’s announcement said. It suggested that relations be improved on a step-by step approach.
If Washington believes the coverage of increased sanctions and pressure on human rights will force the North to give up its atomic weapons, it is going to depend as greatest miscalculation, and it’ll blocks the path to denuclearization on the Korean peninsula forever – a result desired by no one, the announcement added.
Regardless of the stalemate, Washington is making plans for a second Trump Kim summit, which Trump lately said he expected would take place in early 2019.
But, Trump also indicated that he was prepared to take a patient approach, tweeting on Friday the U.S. Was in no rush, in its negotiations with North Korea.
There’s wonderful potential for great economic success for this country. He tweeted. Kim Jong Un sees it better than anybody and will take benefit of it. We’re doing fine!
