Pyongyang, April 20 (KCNA) -- Choe Son Hui, first vice-minister of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), gave the following answer to the question raised by KCNA on April 20, in the light of the fact that John Bolton, national security adviser of the White House, gave himself airs with his own remarks on the 3rd round of DPRK-U.S. summit:
Bolton, national security adviser of the White House, in an interview with Bloomberg on April 17, showed above himself by saying such a nonsense that the U.S. needs to see a real indication from north Korea that it has made a strategic decision of giving up its nuclear weapons before the 3rd DPRK-U.S. summit and that it should be ready to discuss what President Trump talked on a "Big Deal".
As it was before, we have never expected that adviser Bolton would ever make a reasonable remark. For all that, if he is a White House national security adviser, he should at least have understood about what kinds of substantive communications are made between the top leaders concerning the 3rd round of summit before he had ever opened his mouth.
But Bolton's remarks make me wonder whether they sprang out of incomprehension of the intentions of the top leaders of the DPRK and the U.S. or whether he was just trying to talk with a certain sense of humor for his part, with its own deviation. All things considered, his word has no charm in it and he looks dim-sighted to me.
In this remark of Bolton, I can hardly find the tact and logic of the American style so common in American lingo.
I warn you that it would do yourself no good if you continue to throw away such remarks devoid of discretion and reason.
