North Korean Deputy Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui says that North Korea is considering suspending denuclearisation talks with the United States.
At a press meet in Pyongyang Minister Hui said, “We have no intention to yield to the US demands (at the Hanoi summit) in any form, nor are we willing to engage in negotiations of this kind.”
This was the first public statement given by North Korea after the talks between Chairman Kim Jong Un and President broke in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi last month.
Choe said the North Korea was deeply disappointed by the failure of the two sides to reach any agreements at the Hanoi summit. She went on to blame America for being too demanding and inflexible.
The United States made clear that Washington would not accept a phased denuclearization. The two nations maintained that they were closely engaged despite the collapse of the Hanoi summit.
A week after the Hanoi summit satellite images showed that North Korea was building portion of the Sohae facility previously that is used to test long-range missile engines.
Last month at the Hanoi summit Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump’s meeting ended abruptly, no agreement was signed. Kim was adamant and demanded that all US sanctions be lifted against his country.
Soon after the talks broke on the 28th of February, Donald Trump told in a news conference that if he wanted he could have got an agreement, however “sometimes you have to walk away, this was just one of those times.”
