DPRK FM Roving Ambassador Gives Answers to Questions Put by KCNA

Date: 20/11/2019 | Source: Naenara (En) | Read original version at source

Kim Myong Gil, roving ambassador of the DPRK Foreign Ministry, on November 19 gave the following answers to the questions put by KCNA as regards the DPRK-US dialogue:

Question: Could you comment on US media's recent report that the DPRK-US working negotiations are quite likely to open in December?

Answer: As we have already reiterated several times, the DPRK-US dialogue is impossible unless the US makes a bold decision to scrap its hostile policy towards the DPRK.

Question: It is said that the special representative of the US Department of State for north Korea policy suggested having a meeting again within December through a third country. Which country is it?

Answer: It is Sweden.

Question: The United States asked Sweden to deliver the suggestion, not having direct contact with the DPRK. What is the reason?

Answer: In my opinion, the US side traded on Sweden in order not to give an impression that it fawns on the DPRK.

The DPRK appreciates the Swedish side for offering the venue for the DPRK-US working negotiations and convenience early in October.

Now that the DPRK and the US know each other's stand so well, Sweden no longer needs to work for the DPRK-US dialogue, I think.

I am not sure that Sweden is either interested in the improvement of the DPRK-US relations or beseeched by the US, but if the Swedish side behaves like a back-seat driver, it might be regarded as unreasonable.

It is not for lack of communication channel or mediator that the DPRK-US negotiations have not yet been held.

The Swedish side would be well advised to properly understand the situation and behave itself.

The US should no longer pretend that it is interested in the DPRK-US dialogue, having a third country stand for it.
