much-anticipated working-level talks between North Korea and the u.s. fell
apart without any tangible results as the u.s. won in the negotiating table

expectations by offering suggestions like a flexible approach new method and
creative solutions but they have disappointed us greatly and dampen their
enthusiasm for negotiation by bringing nothing to the negotiation table Pyongyang’s chief nuclear envoy Kim

his negotiations with US Special Representative for North Korea Stephen

offered to start earnest discussions on the next steps for denuclearization

of nuclear tests and intercontinental ballistic missiles the chief negotiator

that threaten their safety and impede their development hinting at the need
for the u.s. to provide security guarantees as well as sanctions relief

  • NK won't give up its nukes and the US knows this. So, the US will just play the game and never compromise unless NK is serious about de-nuclearization. If NK gets too aggressive it'll be wiped out and China will be quite happy to be in on the rebuild. NK can't win this unless they are sincerely ready to get rid of their nukes.If Kim starts testing long range gear then it will simply be blown out of the sky. Any retaliation by Kim will result in the regime being reduced to ashes. Quite easy really. Wake up NK.

  • What development? They make nukes. There's no development otherwise building useless buildings till they drop dead. ?? ? What guarantee??? Are we threatening them? ?? Bullshit.
