Selin ATAY-TDO-In response to Trump's implication with Pyongyang leader Kim Jong-Un, Gwan, a North Korean Foreign Ministry adviser, said, "We are not interested in meetings that do not benefit. We are not going to gift the president of the United States something he can boast about because we don't get anything in return," he said.
Washington must end its hostile politics toward North Korea to keep the nuclear talks alive, North Korean Foreign Ministry adviser Kim Kye Gwan said in a statement.
The sides have held 3 summits and other meetings since June last year, but there has been no improvement in relations, Kim said, "the United States is trying to win time in its favor. We are no longer interested in such meetings that do not benefit us. We will not just gift the president of the United States something he can boast about because we don't get anything in return, we will even receive the rewards of the achievements that President Trump prides himself on. “He commented.
In his tweet, Trump told Kim, “You should act quickly, get the deal done,” and hinted at a further meeting, signing off “See you soon!”
The first day of talks between North Korea and the United States in Sweden on October 5 was interrupted, and the Pyongyang administration declared that North Korea had no intention of continuing "these exasperating negotiations" unless it took a satisfactory step to change the US side's hostile approach.
Kim, the chief North Korean negotiator, had given Washington until the end of the year, noting that the resumption of the negotiation process depended on the U.S. position.
