On Trump-Kim summit anniversary, N.Korea sees no point in maintaining relations with US

After severing all communication lines with South Korea earlier this week, North Korea now feels there is hardly any point in maintaining relationship with the US if Washington continues to stick to its hostile policies. North Korea made this clear on Friday during the anniversary of Kim Jong-Un and the U.S President Donald Trump’s first summit that was held in Singapore in 2018. 

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Son Gwon said, “The question is whether there will be a need to keep holding hands shaken in Singapore, as we see that there is nothing of factual improvement to be made in the DPRK-US relations simply by maintaining personal relations between our supreme leadership and the US President.”

He added, “Never again will we provide the US chief executive with another package to be used for (political) achievements without receiving any returns. Nothing is more hypocritical than an empty promise.”

The Minister said that in the past two years, America continued to pursue ‘regime change’ in North Korea and threatened with prospects of a nuclear strike, isolation and suffocation. He said that as a result of this, North Korea has also decided to build up its military force to counter U.S threats.
