N. Korean diplomat warns of “terrible” results if U.S. fails to offer better deal

Kim Myong Gil dismisses State Department claims that negotiations could resume in two weeks

North Korea's chief negotiator Kim Myong Gil on Monday warned that a “terrible” event may take place should the U.S. fail to offer Pyongyang a better deal, claiming that the ball is now in Washington's court to restart dialogue.

Speaking to reporters at Beijing Capital International Airport while en route home from working-level talks with the U.S. over the weekend, Kim reiterated his disappointment with the outcome of the negotiations and said that the Americans had been under-prepared for the meetings.
