Kim Myong Gil, roving ambassador of the DPRK Foreign Ministry, released the following statement on Friday:

I have read with keen interest the report that US President Trump pointed to the injustice of applying the mode of "Libyan-style abandonment of nukes" to the DPRK and proposed a "new method" for the improvement of DPRK-US relations.

I, as the chief delegate of the DPRK side to the DPRK-US working negotiations, would like to welcome the wise political decision of President Trump to approach the DPRK-US relations from a more practical point of view now that a nasty trouble-maker who used to face everything out of his anachronistic way of thinking has disappeared from the US administration.

No one will deny that if the former shilly-shallying US administrations with a rigid way of thinking were still in power, an uncontrollable situation would have undoubtedly been created on the Korean peninsula and this would come to be a direct threat to the US security.

At the moment I am not quite sure what he implied in his suggestion of the "new method" but to me it seems he wanted to imply that a step-by-step solution starting with the things feasible first while building trust in each other would be the best option.

The depth of what he said is something to give a second thought later, but the political decision to turn to a new alternative, finding it utterly impossible to make it with the old method is the manifestation of the political perception and disposition peculiar to President Trump, which no preceding US chief executives had ever thought of nor had been able to do.
