DPRK backpeddles ahead of monumental US talks

Human Interest

North Korea threatened on Wednesday to cancel the planned summit between leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump if Washington goes ahead with its demand that Piongyang unilaterally abandon its nuclear arsenal.

If the US government “corners us and asks us unilaterally to abandon our nuclear weapons we will not have any interest in the talks and we will have to reconsider whether we accept the future summit between North Korea and the United States,” said the deputy foreign minister. Kim Kye Gwan in a statement released by the official agency KCNA.

Washington is pressing for Piongyang to carry out a complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization. But so far, North Korea has not given any public signal that it is going to make concessions.

At the summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in last month Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his commitment to a denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. But this phrase is a euphemism open to interpretations.
