    North Korea Threatens to End Nuclear Talks With U.S., Citing 'Hostile Policy'


    North Korean negotiator Kim Miyong Gil reads statement outside the North Korean Embassy in Stockholm, Sweden, Saturday, Oct. 5, 2019. North Korea's chief negotiator said Saturday that discussions with the U.S. on Pyongyang's nuclear program have broken down, but Washington said the two sides had 'good discussions' that it intends to build on in two weeks.

    (SEOUL, South Korea) — North Korea said Sunday that it won’t meet again with the United States unless it abandons its “hostile policy” against the North, as the two countries offered different takes on their weekend nuclear negotiations in Sweden.

    After their first talks in more than seven months in Stockholm on Saturday, the chief North Korean nuclear negotiator said the talks broke down “entirely because the U.S. has not discarded its old stance and attitude” and came to the negotiating table with an “empty hand.” But the U.S. said the two sides had “good discussions” that it intends to build on in two weeks.

    On Sunday night, the North’s Foreign Ministry issued a statement accusing the U.S. of trying to mislead public opinion and “spreading a completely ungrounded story that both sides are open to meet” again.

    The statement said the Stockholm talks “made us think they have no political will to improve (North Korea)-U.S. relations and may be abusing the bilateral relations for their own partisan interests” at home.

    I would rather wait to hear what Trump has to say, rather than listen to fake news.

    Possibly a different approach may work.

    Xi, Kim laud sound, stable bilateral ties

    "China-DPRK friendship weathers intl changes and becomes stronger, Xi says

    President Xi Jinping said on Sunday that Beijing stands ready to join hands with Pyongyang in pushing forward the long-term, sound and stable development of their bilateral relationship.

    Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, made the remark as he exchanged congratulatory messages with Kim Jong-un, top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, over the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between the two countries.

    In his message, Xi extended warm congratulations on behalf of the CPC, the Chinese government and the Chinese people, to Kim, who is also chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, and through Kim to the WPK, the DPRK government and the DPRK people

    China and the DPRK officially established diplomatic ties 70 years ago, which had epoch-making significance in the history of relations between the two parties and countries, Xi said.

    The DPRK was one of the first countries to establish diplomatic ties with the People's Republic of China.

    Xi said the China-DPRK traditional friendship has weathered international vicissitudes and changes over time under the care of successive leaders of the two parties and countries and joint efforts from both sides over the past seven decades.

    It has enjoyed constant development, become even stronger and been supported by the people, he said.

    He also said that the two countries have achieved fruitful results in exchanges and cooperation in various fields that have greatly promoted prosperity and progress in the cause of socialism in the two countries and played an active and important role in safeguarding regional peace and stability.

    Xi stressed that the China-DPRK traditional friendship is a precious asset of two parties, two countries and two peoples. It is an unswerving policy of the CPC and the Chinese government to maintain, consolidate and develop sound China-DPRK ties, he added.
    He said he highly values developing China-DPRK ties and cherishes the mutual trust and friendship with Kim."

    I can tell you what he has to say.

    "Witch Hunt! I can't release my tax returns they are under audit!" and sundry other bollocks, because that's what's on the front pages.

    Probably because it's way behind most developed countries in education, healthcare, etc.
