DPRK vice foreign minister slams John Bolton for “dim-sighted” remarks
Choe Son Hui warns U.S. against "remarks devoid of discretion and reason"

North Korean first vice foreign minister Choe Son Hui on Saturday condemned U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton for recent comments regarding prospects for a third meeting between President Donald Trump and DPRK leader Kim Jong Un, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported.

In an answer to a question from a KCNA reporter, the high-ranking diplomat reportedly responded to Bolton's Wednesday remarks that the DPRK would need to make a "real indication" of willingness to denuclearize before a third summit takes place and that the U.S. expected a "Big Deal" to emerge from that meeting.
