North Korean official: Kim rethinking nuclear talks with US

North Korea’s Kim Jong Un is reconsidering whether to continue with negotiations with the U.S. over his country’s nuclear weapons program, a top official in Kim’s government said Friday.

Reuters reported that North Korea’s Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui cast blame on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and President Trump‘s national security adviser, John Bolton, for an atmosphere of distrust surrounding the negotiations during a press conference.

Bolton and Pompeo “created the atmosphere of hostility and mistrust and, therefore, obstructed the constructive effort for negotiations between the supreme leaders of North Korea and the United States,” Choe accused, according to Reuters.

“I want to make it clear that the gangster-like stand of the U.S. will eventually put the situation in danger,” Choe added, according to Reuters and The Associated Press, though she added: “Personal relations between the two supreme leaders are still good and the chemistry is mysteriously wonderful.”
