Talks with Trump only possible if U.S. stops trying to “disarm us”: North Korea

Trump-Kim Jong Un summit not possible until U.S. policy changes, says Rodong Sinmun

A meeting between U.S. President Trump and Kim Jong Un will only be possible once the U.S. stops seeking North Korean denuclearization, an op-ed in ruling party organ the Rodong Sinmun said on Thursday.

Trump previously told Bloomberg that he would be “honored” to meet Kim Jong Un and that he would engage Pyongyang “under certain circumstances”, statements dismissed by Rodong as part of a scheme to disarm and weaken North Korea.
