North Korea has been acting aggressively for several months, conducting military drills, launching missiles, and threatening the West.
According to the Daily Caller, North Korean Ambassador Kye Chun Yong told a reporter in India that North Korea is willing to scrap its nuclear program if South Korea and the United States were to stop conducting drills in the area.
“Under the certain circumstances, we are willing to talk in terms of freezing our nuclear and missile testing,” stated Kye in broken English. “For instance, if America decides to completely stop the large-scale military exercise, stop temporarily or permanently, then we will also temporarily stop. Let us talk about how to solve the Korean issue peacefully.
“If our demands is met, we can negotiate in terms of the moratorium of such as weapons testing,” Kye added, according to South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency. Kye’s remarks can be seen from the 3:56 to 4:26 minute mark of the video:

In a blusterous propaganda piece published by the state-run Korean Central News Agency typical of the authoritarian regime, the annual regional military drills between U.S. forces and those of South Korea and Japan were once again decried as being “reckless” provocations toward a nuclear conflict, one the North doesn’t seem inclined to shy away from.
“However, the Trump administration, obsessed by megalomania, is going arrogant to mount a preemptive nuclear strike at the DPRK,” stated KCNA, using the initials for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. “The army of the DPRK is whetting the sword of retaliation sharper than before with a firm hold on the nuclear sword of justice to cope with the U.S. imperialists’ escalating aggression moves.
“The U.S. imperialist warmongers should not run amuck, clearly mindful that their reckless nuclear war hysteria will only bring the U.S. destruction,” the regime’s media mouthpiece concluded.
Pyongyang has also been signaling that June 25, the anniversary of the North’s invasion in 1950 of South Korea, could be a rather big day, insinuating that it may have another nuclear test planned to take place.
It is tough to say whether his comments are true, but if there is truth to them, do you believe the U.S. should consider such a request?
