North Korea Calls Off Denuclearization Talks with the U.S.

HeadlineOct 07, 2019

North Korean officials have called off talks with the U.S. on denuclearization, warning the Trump administration it has until the end of the year to change its bargaining approach if it wants negotiations to continue. On Saturday, North Korea’s chief nuclear negotiator denied the U.S. State Department’s rosy assessment of the talks in Stockholm, Sweden, saying U.S. negotiators brought nothing to the table.

Kim Myong-gil: “The U.S. raised expectations by offering suggestions like a flexible approach, new methods and creative solutions, but they have disappointed us greatly and dampened our enthusiasm for negotiations by bringing nothing to the table.”
