Ahead of Trump, N.Korean foreign ministry issues nine page rebuke of Obama

Document intended to provide policy review for incoming Trump administration, expert says

The true goal of U.S. policy towards North Korea since the death of Kim Jong Il has been "political suffocation and system collapse" of the DPRK, a nine-page 'Memorandum of DPRK Foreign Ministry' document said on Tuesday.

The document, provided to NK News by the DPRK Mission to the United Nations, provides a detail-driven and chronological account of why, from Pyongyang's perspective, the Obama administration's policies have since 2012 justified ongoing development of nuclear and missile programs.
