Answer by First Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs of DPRK

Choe Son Hui, first vice-minister of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea(DPRK), gave the following answer to the question raised by KCNA on April 20, in the light of the fact that John Bolton, national security adviser of the White House, gave himself airs with his own remarks on the 3rd round of DPRK-U.S. summit:

Bolton, national security adviser of the White House, in an interview with Bloomberg on April 17, showed above himself by saying such a nonsense that the U.S. needs to see a real indication from north Korea that it has made a strategic decision of giving up its nuclear weapons before the 3rd DPRK-U.S. summit and that it should be ready to discuss what President Trump talked on a “Big Deal”.

As it was before, we have never expected that adviser Bolton would ever make a reasonable remark. For all that, if he is a White House national security adviser, he should at least have understood about what kinds of substantive communications are made between the top leaders concerning the 3rd round of summit before he had ever opened his mouth.

U.S. Secretary of State Slammed

Kwon Jong Gun, director general of the Department of American Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, gave the following answer to a question raised by the KCNA on Thursday as regards the fact that Pompeo, U.S. Secretary of the State, is letting loose reckless remarks and sophism of all kinds against us every day:

In his historic policy speech at the First Session of the 14th Supreme People’s Assembly, Comrade Kim Jong Un, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, has clarified the principled stand on the DPRK-U.S. relations and settlement of the nuclear issue and said he would wait in patience till the end of this year to see whether the United States makes a courageous decision or not.

Everyone has a clear interpretation of his speech which says that the U.S. should change its way of calculation and come up with responsive measures before the end of this year. Just at this time, only Pompeo, U.S. Secretary of the State, is talking nonsense that its meaning is to finish the working level negotiation between the DPRK and the U.S. by the end of the year, which subjects him to public ridicule.
