North Korean leader’s sister rules out another “useless” summit with U.S.

Kim Yo Jong hails good relations between Kim and Trump, but says change in U.S. attitude required

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s younger sister in a new statement Friday dismissed prospects for another summit with U.S. President Donald Trump as “useless,” but said the country would remain optimistic about a change in U.S. attitude.

The statement from party First Vice Department Director Kim Yo Jong appeared to signal her brother will not seek another summit before the November U.S. presidential election, saying the North has “nothing to gain” and repeating that it would only benefit Trump politically.
