Press Statement by Kim Yo Jong, First Vice Department Director of Central Committee of Workers’ Party of Korea

During these days, I have been hearing through the news media a spate of strange signal being transmitted by the Americans with regard to the DPRK.

It was good enough for me to kill breakfast time by watching the TV news about the changes of the Americans’ mind-set who went the length of indicating signals of the possibility of the DPRK-U.S. summit talks.

It is still my personal opinion, however, I doubt that things like the DPRK-U.S. summit talks would happen this year.

Press Statement by Director-General of Department of U.S. Affairs of DPRK Foreign Ministry

Our First Vice Foreign Minister recently made clear her stand in a statement over untimely “rumor about a DPRK-U.S. summit.”

The statement also mentioned the meddlesome man who had again indicated his intention to arbitrate between the DPRK and the U.S. regardless of time.

Our stand was as clear as day to be easily understood by the south, because they use the same language as us.

Statement of First Vice Foreign Minister of DPRK

Words “DPRK-U.S. summit” which have become dim even in our memory have become a topic for conversation from some days ago, drawing the attention of the international community.

There is a person who thoughtlessly voices an intention to mediate the summit, utterly regardless of what we, the dialogue party, would think of it, and there is rumor that the U.S. ruling quarters admit the need to hold DPRK-U.S. summit before the U.S. presidential election.

There are even some dreamers hoping to leverage our denuclearization measures for conditional lifting of sanctions, while raising hope for “October surprise.”

Press Statement Issued by Vice-Minister for European Affairs of DPRK Foreign Ministry

Kim Son Gyong, vice-minister for European Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea issued the following statement on Wednesday:

On June 16, the spokesperson for Foreign Affairs & Security Policy led by the High Representative of the European Union picked a quarrel with the DPRK’s measure of completely destroying the north-south joint liaison office and overrode her commission in making absurd remarks that the DPRK should avoid any action that could raise tension and that it is imperative for the DPRK to open the lines of communication to avoid misunderstanding and miscalculation. She also said that the EU encourages dialogue for denuclearization on the Korean peninsula and the restart of a sustained diplomatic process aimed at building trust and establishing lasting peace and security on the Korean peninsula, free of nuclear weapons at the earliest possible time.

We are now pretty immune to such gibberish of the EU, but I didn’t know that the EU’s power of judgment was at such low level.
