Is North Korea Pulling Out of the US Meeting?by

It’s been one of the bigger surprises of the news this year, and already it seems like the event may be off the table completely – though who’s to say? Kim Jong-Un of North Korea has recently agreed to meet with US President Donald Trump in Singapore in June this year, indicating that it would be an historic moment – though US officials seem to be keen to push for Pyongyang to dismantle its nuclear arsenal altogether if talks are to be deemed a success. Needless to say, until recently, things were looking very positive – as a main nuclear testing site in North Korea had begun decommissioning, and as Trump has acknowledged the move on Twitter graciously. However, as the days have progressed, it seems that something in the North Korean camp has changed – if only a little – as it appears they may have to reconsider talks if certain rhetoric is to go ahead.

In particular, the state’s latest public comment concerns ‘provocation’ from the US ahead of the momentous summit – drawing US National Security Adviser John Bolton into the mix. It’s North Korea’s vice-foreign minister, Kim Kye-gwan, who has made such comments – advising that Pyongyang does not ‘hide (their) feeling of repugnance towards (Bolton)’. The media announcement comes advising that North Korea may ‘have to reconsider’ the proposed June 12th meeting with President Trump – and that if America ‘corners (North Korea) and unilaterally demands (they) give up nuclear weapons, (they) will no longer have an interest in talks’. “(it is) very unfortunate that the US is provoking us ahead of the summit by spitting out ludicrous statements.”

So what has John Bolton supposedly done to ire Pyongyang? According to BBC News, the adviser has previously discussed issuing a ‘pre-emptive strike’ against North Korea in the past – and in recent days, he has suggested that the reclusive state could follow Libya’s example in nuclear disarmament – however, the Libya saga eventually resulted in rebel uprising, aided by the West, in the assassination of Colonel Gaddafi. “It is essentially a manifestation of awfully sinister moves to impose on our dignified state the destiny or Libya or Iraq which had been collapsed due to yielding the whole of their countries to big powers,” Kim Kye-gwan advised.

Therefore – where does this leave the proposed talks? It’s hard to say at this moment – but it seems that the North Korea negotiation is set to be an even more sensitive affair than presumed – and talk of nuclear disarmament may not be so up for the chancing.
