North Korean authorities set their sights directly on National Security Advisor John Bolton Wednesday, saying they do not “hide their feelings of repugnance” towards the senior Trump aide while threatening to scuttle future talks with American officials.
North Korea’s Deputy Foreign Minister Kim Kye-gwan slammed the NSA while speaking with the state-run news agency this week; saying the communist regime remembers Bolton’s remarks from 2003 labeling Kim Jong Un’s father a “tyrannical dictator.”
“We do not hide our feelings of repugnance towards him,” said Kim.
The Foreign Minister went on to warn American officials that his country refuses to follow the “miserable fate” of Libya, whose leader Muammar Gaddafi was violently overthrown after voluntarily abandoning his nuclear weapons program.
“This is not an expression of intention to address the issue through dialogue. It is essentially a manifestation of awfully sinister moves to impose on our dignified state the destiny of Libya or Iraq which had [sic] been collapsed due to yielding the whole of their countries to big powers,” added Kim.
CRISIS IN KOREA: Kim Jong Un Threatens to CANCEL Trump Summit
North Korean officials suddenly threatened to cancel their high-stakes summit with President Trump Tuesday, saying the United States’ recent joint military drill with South Korea was a “rehearsal for invasion” of the Hermit Kingdom.
According to the Daily Mail, a spokesperson for the communist regime slammed the Trump administration through the state-run news agency; saying the US will have to take “careful deliberations” after the “provocative military ruckus.”
“The United States will also have to undertake careful deliberations about the fate of the planned North Korea-U.S. summit in light of this provocative military ruckus jointly conducted with the South Korean authorities,” the statement said.
The direct threat comes just days after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo returned from Pyongyang with three American prisoners; setting the stage for the historic summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un on June 12th in Singapore.
PEACE IN KOREA: Kim Agrees to GIVE UP Nukes if US PLEDGES 'No Invasion'
North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un suggested over the weekend his willingness to not only “cease” his nuclear program, but to completely hand over his weapons should the US pledge never to preemptively “invade” the Hermit Kingdom.
The continued thawing of relations between the US, North, and South Korea continued Sunday, with the brutal despot agreeing to cede his weapons to external authorities if Trump agrees to halt any future attacks on the communist nation.
According to the New York Times, Kim’s concession comes as the dictator agreed to allow both US and South Korean nuclear experts into his country to examine his facilities and testing sites.
The possible two-year denuclearization agreement would need “full, complete, total disclosure of everything related to their nuclear program with a full international verification,” said John Bolton, the President’s National Security Adviser.
“I know the Americans are inherently disposed against us, but when they talk with us, they will see that I am not the kind of person who would shoot nuclear weapons to the south, over the Pacific or at the United States,” the North Korean ruler told the South Korean President this week.
