Answer by First Vice-Minister of Foreign Affai…


[April 20 Juche 108 (2019) KCNA]

Choe Son Hui, first vice-minister of
Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK),
gave the following answer to the question raised by KCNA on April 20, in
the light of the fact that John Bolton, national security adviser of
the White House, gave himself airs with his own remarks on the 3rd round
of DPRK-U.S. summit:

Bolton, national security adviser of the White House, in an interview
with Bloomberg on April 17, showed above himself by saying such a
nonsense that the U.S. needs to see a real indication from north Korea
that it has made a strategic decision of giving up its nuclear weapons
before the 3rd DPRK-U.S. summit and that it should be ready to discuss
what President Trump talked on a “Big Deal”.

As it was before, we have never expected that adviser Bolton would ever
make a reasonable remark. For all that, if he is a White House national
security adviser, he should at least have understood about what kinds of
substantive communications are made between the top leaders concerning
the 3rd round of summit before he had ever opened his mouth.

But Bolton’s remarks make me wonder whether they sprang out of
incomprehension of the intentions of the top leaders of the DPRK and the
U.S. or whether he was just trying to talk with a certain sense of
humor for his part, with its own deviation. All things considered, his
word has no charm in it and he looks dim-sighted to me.

In this remark of Bolton, I can hardly find the tact and logic of the American style so common in American lingo.

I warn you that it would do yourself no good if you continue to throw away such remarks devoid of discretion and reason.
