A top North Korean representative said that Pyongyang would meet with the Trump organization for arrangements “if the conditions are set.”
Choe Son Hui, chief general for North American Affairs at the Foreign Ministry, talked quickly to columnists in Beijing on Saturday in transit to Pyongyang. She was going from Norway, where she drove an appointment that held a casual meeting with previous U.S. authorities and researchers.
Choe did not expound on what the North’s conditions are, but rather her remarks raise the likelihood of North Korea and the U.S. coming back to arrangements surprisingly since 2008, when six-country talks over Pyongyang’s atomic weapons program went into disrepair.
President Donald Trump opened the entryway this month to talks, saying he would be “respected” to meet North Korean pioneer Kim Jong Un.
Pressures have mounted as of late after the Trump organization said it would keep “all options on the table” to end North Korea’s atomic weapons program, including a military strike. The North reacted by swearing to strike back with an overwhelming atomic counterattack, a danger it has made before.
As of late, North Korea has captured two American college educators and laid out what it guaranteed to be a CIA-supported plot to kill Kim. Choe did not address the matter of the confined Americans on Saturday.
In Norway, Choe met with previous U.S. authorities and researchers for what are known as “track 2” talks. The discussions, which cover a scope of atomic, security and reciprocal issues, are held discontinuously, and are a casual open door for the two sides to trade suppositions and concerns.
