North Korean first vice foreign minister condemns Pompeo for “dangerous” remarks
DPRK's commitment to denuclearization "unchanged," Choe says, urging U.S. to show more flexibility

North Korean first vice foreign minister Choe Son Hui in comments on Tuesday slammed U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for what she described as his "stupid and dangerous" suggestion last week that the U.S. would "change paths" should diplomacy with the DPRK not succeed.

The comments, made in response to a question from a reporter from the country's state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), saw Choe warn the U.S. against suggesting it would seek to "break down our system by using military methods."
