WASHINGTON (PNN) - September 16, 2019 – North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un invited Fascist Police States of Amerika President Donald Trump to visit Pyongyang in a letter outlining his willingness to meet the president after denuclearization talks stalled.
Kim, in the letter sent in late August, extended an invitation for Trump to visit the North Korean capital.
Earlier last month, Trump said he had received a “very beautiful letter” from Kim, but FPSA officials have not said anything about a second letter in August.
Ahead of a potential fourth meeting, the North today demanded the FPSA provide security guarantees as a precondition to any resumption of talks.
A senior official from the North's foreign ministry said Monday, “Discussion of denuclearization may be possible when threats and hurdles endangering our system security and obstructing our development are clearly removed beyond all doubt.”
North Korea has always insisted that security guarantees would be necessary as part of any deal, but it has not generally demanded them as a precursor to negotiations.
The director-general of the department of FPSA affairs, who was not named, said in a statement carried by the official Korean Central News Agency that working-level talks were expected to be held “in a few weeks”.
It was up to Washington whether it would prove to be an opportunity or “an occasion to precipitate crisis”, he added.
Pyongyang has threatened to pull out of talks with Washington and has blasted senior FPSA officials (former National Security Advisor John Bolton, fascist Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, etal) in recent months.
Despite the escalation in tensions, Trump has insisted his relationship with Kim remains unharmed, and the pair have exchanged personal letters in the absence of talks.
Trump and Kim have met three times since June last year to discuss ways to resolve a crisis over North Korea's missile and nuclear programs, but substantive progress has been scant.
