The chief of the News Service for Overseas Distribution of the Department of Press and Information of the DPRK Foreign Ministry issued the following statement on April 19:
U.S. media quoted the U.S. President as saying to the reporters on April 18 that he received a “good letter” from the supreme leadership of the DPRK.
He could have referred to the personal letters that had been exchanged in the past, we are not sure.
But there was no letter addressed recently to the U.S. President by the supreme leadership of the DPRK.
We are about to look into the matter to see if the U.S. leadership seeks anything in feeding the ungrounded story into the media.
The relations between the top leaders of the DPRK and the U.S. are not an issue to be taken up just for diversion nor should it be misused for meeting selfish purposes.
