North Korea regrets US stance at talks


North Korea expressed regret over a US stance at the talks between the two countries, North Korea’s Foreign Ministry said on Saturday, APA reports quoting TASS.

 

"[The stance] is a matter of deep regret," North Korea’s news agency KCNA said citing the foreign ministry.

 

North Korea is reported to have called for more exchanges between the two states and for an announcement of the end of war on the Korean Peninsula, whereas the United States was unilaterally insisting on complete denuclearization at the talks with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Pyongyang.

 

"This stance triggers a dangerous situation when [North Korea’s resolve for denuclearization] must shutter," the North Korean Foreign Ministry emphasized.

 

"The shortest way [to denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula] are gradual steps based on joint actions," the statement said.

 

Earlier on Saturday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo wrapped up his two-day visit to Pyongyang, where he had held talks with Kim Yong Chol, the director of the United Front Department of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK). After the talks, Pompeo said, "Some places [there was] a great deal of progress".
