"Something New": Don't try our patience - North Korea tells U.S.

Recommended Posts

North Korea warned the United States that agreements made between the two countries’ leaders in Singapore last year could be at risk, blaming the United States for undue pressure to denuclearize, state news agency KCNA said on Tuesday. The statement comes as media reports indicated North Korea punished some members of its team that steered negotiations with the United States before a failed summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump in Hanoi in February.Nearly a year after Trump and Kim first met in Singapore and signed a four-point joint statement pledging to work toward a new relationship, that agreement could be at risk if the United States does not drop its policy of “only insisting on our unilateral surrender of nuclear weapons”, an unnamed foreign ministry spokesman said in the statement. North Korea warned that if the United States does not come up with something new “before it is too late”, the joint statement would just turn out to be a “mere blank sheet of paper”.

So, it's time for a new approach - this does not work. Indeed, it never did...

It's worth to ask how  has North Korea's strategy of empty threats managed to foil the world for so long. I don't belive that they will put their own regime in danger by a hostile act against any country that could wipe them off the map..

So, again bombastic threats and intransigence. It's hard to make a deal with dictator, demagogue and authoritarian leader ...

Kim is a mere pawn of China. To a lesser extent Russia. If he displeases either, he is gone.
